Call for Review - Public Draft of EPUB 3.0.1

November 11, 2013

On November 7, 2013 the IDPF Board of Directors unanimously approved elevation of EPUB 3.0.1 to public draft status. EPUB 3.0.1, developed by the EPUB Working Group, is a backwards-compatible minor update to EPUB 3 intended to address a number of minor errata and issues in EPUB 3.0, improve alignment with the latest Open Web Platform specifications, and provide extension points for modular extensions to EPUB that are presently under development.  Comments on the draft specification are solicited through December 3, 2013. IDPF members may submit comments via the EPUB WG mailing list. Members and non-members are also welcome to submit comments via the EPUB specifications issue tracker ( or via email to the working group co-chair and IDPF CTO Markus Gylling ( The issue tracker is also a useful source of background information on the motivation for specific changes, as is the EPUB WG wiki at .  According to IDPF policies, the next steps in the approval process after Public Draft would be for the Board to elevate the (potentially revised based on comments) specification to Proposed Draft for a final member review (including Intellectual Property review), followed by a member vote to approve as a final Recommended Specification.
