Announcing CSL 1.0.2 release: January 1, 2022

With some delay we’re excited to announce the full release of CSL 1.0.2 on January 1, 2022.

Specifically, starting that day,

  • we will allow styles and locales using 1.0.2 on the master branch of the styles and locales repository
  • we will push all new styles/locales to a new 1.0.2 branch on the respective repository. As a result, the 1.0.1 branch is effectively frozen

We will also try to update the validator (validator.citationstyles.org) to 1.0.2 as default.

The visual editor (editor.citationstyles.org) will likely lag behind, but we are fully committed to updating that as well.

CSL 1.0.2 is a minor release that only adds variables, terms, and item types. It is backwards compatible: any valid CSL 1.0.1 style is valid in 1.0.2.

Several major processors, including citeproc-js, citeproc-js, and citeproc-pandoc are already compatible with 1.0.2, so we are not expecting this to require significant changes for implementers.

You can find a list of updates in 1.0.2 at Release v1.0.2 · citation-style-language/schema · GitHub

The new schema is at GitHub - citation-style-language/schema at v1.0.2

Please post any organizational questions here, anything substantive about the schema or release should go on GitHub or in a new topic here.

We’re very excited about this upcoming release – thank you too everyone who helped shape it.
