Second Edition of SOAP 1.2 is a W3C Recommendation

pencil icon, that"s clickable to start editing the post

Browsing the news over at W3C I discovered the news about the second edition of SOAP 1.2:

For one I haven't even got over to SOAP 1.2, though Axis2 makes it possible for me. Secondly what is a second edition of the same version? Is this like going from 1.2.0 to 1.2.1? The answer is given there:

The second edition incorporates corrections for the known errata in the first edition

Uhmm, so it's just a write up of all the errors in the first edition. There are also multiple editions of other W3C standards like the Extensible Markup Language (XML) 1.0 that's in the fourth Edition and XML Inclusions (XInclude) Version 1.0 that's also a second edition. How often do they make these editions and on what grounds? I've search the site and didn't find anything on it, so I guess the groups make it up for them selfs when they feels it's time for a write up.
