SDL-2010: Background, Rationale, and Survey

Rick Reed is Chairman at the SDL Forum society. This invited presentation concerns a revised version of the ITU-T Specification and Description Language standard, which is scheduled to be consented for approval by ITU-T during 2011. In this presentation and ongoing ITU-T work the revised version is called SDL-2010. At the time of writing (April 2011) the current standardized (or in ITU-T terminology Recommended) version is called SDL-2000. The presentation gives some historical background on the development of the language. The presentation includes rationale for the update of the language and the revised organization of the language standard. After the history, there is a description of the new organization followed by some details of the changed feature set of a revised version SDL-2010 compared with SDL-2000. The presentation concludes with a snapshot of the status of the SDL-2010 standard. This presentation was filmed during the SDL Forum 2011 hosted by IRIT in Toulouse.
