OASIS is pleased to announce that XLIFF Version 2.1 has been approved by the membership as an OASIS Standard [1].

The ballot was held under the OASIS call for consent procedure [2]. Under this procedure, consent is assumed unless eligible voters register valid objections. On the ballot, XLIFF Version 2.1 received 19 affirmative consents and no objections. Therefore the standard is approved.
