Next meeting

The next standards meeting will be held on immediatly before the next EuroForth conference. The date and venua has yet to be set. Please go to the euroforth mailing list for further information.

The short story

A new standards process (Forth 200x) for updating the '94 standard is underway. It will produce a formal standards document; proposals for changes to the '94 standard should run through the RfD/CfV process before being discussed at the standards meeting. There is now a mailing list for RfDs/CfVs and other issues related to the Forth 200x effort. It has not been decided whether an official standards body (like ISO) will be involved.
