Note Location Note Description
Base Specification - Q1 2009 - Errata Update Republish Specification in HTML format
Infoset No timeline specified - a generalisation of the Versioning Infoset is possible once that specification has been finalised
Generic Links Precise timing to be determined. Other specifications that are dependent on it and which will provide input into it: Versioning, Formula, Rendering
Generic Links - Q1 2009 - CR Call for implementations
Versioning of non-dimensional taxonomies
- Q4 2008 - PWD 3
Last Call for PWD
Versioning of non-dimensional taxonomies
- Q1 2009 - CR 1
Call for implementations
Versioning Infoset for non-dimensional taxonomies Concurrently with Versioning of non-dimensional taxonomies specification
Versioning of dimensional taxonomies
- Q2 2009 - PWD 2
Last Call for PWD
Versioning of dimensional taxonomies
- Q3 2009 - CR
Call for implementations
Versioning Infoset for dimensional taxonomies Concurrently with Versioning of dimensional taxonomies specification
Inline Rendering (HTML version) - Q4 2008 - CR 2 Call for implementations - implementations expected by Q2 2009
Rendering Linkbase - Q3 2009 - CR Call for implementations
Rendering Linkbase - Q3 2009 - CR 2 late Q3 2009
New elements added to the taxonomy following feedback on current version - Q2 2009- CR Call for implementations
Series of WG Notes Regular publication - about 1 to 2 per quarter
Liaison with other standards organisations - ongoing ISO 20022, TC 68, OMG, UN/CEFACT TBG 12
Formula The dates could be optimistic - the topic is very complex
Formula Specification - Q4 2008 - CR 2 Call for implementations
Registry - Currently "owned" by the Formula WG Rendering (inline XBRL) and Formula both dependent on this
Registry - Currently "owned" by the Formula WG - Q4 2008 - CR Call for implementations is not relevant
