This week the S1000D community released the 5.0 release of the specification.

I took the time to take a look at some of the highlights and how I think they will affect our S1000D projects now and going forward.

There are a couple of items that I spotted that make sense and one or two items that have made me raise my eyebrows and ask the questions as to WHY?

What are you super excited about in S1000D Issue 5.0? Is there anything in here that has grabbed your attention? What is missing from the spec and what are you disappointed within this release?

Mike Ingledew

A trained aircraft engineer (rotorcraft), I entered in to the field of technical information writing S1000D data modules on a major European military platform.

After a series of high profile project roles and the privilege of supporting clients worldwide, I ended my 'employed' career at a subsidiary of Boeing Aircraft after I decided to leave and focus on TDW full-time.

From my time supporting clients worldwide, I could see that there was a market need for an independent organisation that could be a trusted advisory source for those needing to implement successful technical information strategies.

I am passionate about the art of technical communications and the process, software and skills needed in our market.
