Enhancements to XML and Data Feed

We have made enhancements to our XML and data feed so that an IEEE Standard can now have two concurrent active drafts (of different versions) sold at the same time. Example: P802.11ah/D5.0, March 2015 and P802.11ah/D6.0, February 2016

Please note also that the Publisher-Copyright Holder LOVs have been updated.

To help you implement these new features, download a sample file including our latest XML Schema and XML Tag descriptions.

Updated Standards XML Tree Structures

The Category, Subscription, and ICS Code XML tree structures for the IEEE Standards eFeed have been updated. Please make sure to update your system in order to ensure that these XML tree structures properly assign the Categories, Subscriptions and ICS Codes to IEEE Standards content.
