Additionally, a number of backwards-compatible changes suggested at previous meetings and on the project site were incorporated. Conforming to the versioning rules, all 1.0 version documents are also compliant with schema version 1.1, with one exception: the <StorageFormat> element was removed from the schema, but is not widely used and not expected to cause incompatibility.
On acceptance, a change log will be added to the repository that includes the accepted changes 
The additional changes have been reviewed and approved by EIDA and IRIS internally. As these are backwards compatible additions, we do not anticipate significant issues for implementors or users.
If no significant objections are raised by May 3rd, theses changes will be considered accepted and the new 1.1 schema will be posted to the FDSN web site.
Once this is completed, we will start a process to gather ideas for a major release of StationXML, which will be one of the major agenda items at the WG II meeting in Montreal. A proposed agenda for this meeting will follow shortly.
The following issue was approved by the working group but is incompatible with the 1.0 schema and has been deferred to the next major revision:
* Force UTC times in the StationXML being marked as UTC
