Dear AHG participants,


This is not a _typical_ AHG kick-off announcement - I am excited to
emphasize that we have new mandates, new project plan, and very important
work to do!


As far as mandates are concerned (approved at the last WG3 meeting, N0832),
this AHG is now tasked with the following:

1. Review the text of the updated Working Draft of ISO/IEC 14496-22 5th
edition (WG03N0847).

2. Review the content of "Technologies under consideration for ISO/IEC
14496-22 5th edition Open Font Format" document (WG03N0888) and provide
recommendations for the WG3 on if / how these changes can be integrated in
the "Open Font Format" standard.

3. Explore potential future changes and updates, and propose new items (if
applicable) for consideration in the 5th edition of the OFF specification.


We also have the updated project plan for 5th edition of ISO/IEC 14496-22
"Open Font Format". According to this plan, the transition of the final
Working Draft text to Committee Draft is scheduled to happen by end of April
2024. (We can do it sooner if the document is ready for promotion, but there
is a new deadline!) Once the 5th edition draft is promoted to Committee
Draft stage, it will become subject to established ISO balloting process.


Both output documents - the updated Working Draft including all recent
[tracked] changes (N0847,
) and "Technologies under consideration ." that summarizes recently proposed
improvements and new functionality for OFF (N0888,
) are now available for download and public review. I would like to
encourage you to study the documents and bring your comments, suggestions
and concerns for discussion of this AHG.


Thank you very much for your active participation and future contributions
to this important work!
