OGC announces GML version 2.1.2


Wayland, USA, August 30, 2007: On 4 September 2007, the Open Geospatial Consortium, Inc. (OGC) will release a corrigendum to fix problems in the GML 2.1.2 schemas. The changes include changing the official schema location to https://schemas.opengis.net and fixing the other minor changes to the schemas so they validate by conformant processors.

This implementation of Corrigendum 1 for GML 2.1.2 schema fix (OGC 06-189) will create a new version of GML version Note that GML 2.1.2 will always be the latest of the GML 2.1.2.x versions. In other words, this update will result in GML being hosted (symlink) at gml/2.1.2/.

These changes will go live on 4 September 2007. Any applications that rely on the online schemas may be affected. If you wish to maintain your own local copy of the schemas to use with your own applications, a bundled archive is available from https://schemas.opengis.net/. A preview of the planned update is available at https://schemas.opengis.net/gml/
