w3c releases wcag 2.0

On 11 December W3C announced “a new standard that will help Web designers and developers create sites that better meet the needs of users with disabilities and older users.

Drawing on extensive experience and community feedback, the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 improve upon W3C’s groundbreaking initial standard for accessible Web content.

This new standard from the W3C’s Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI) will advance accessibility across the full range of Web content (such as text, images, audio, and video) and Web applications.”

Personally, while I certainly agree that WACG 2.0 moves things forward, I am extremely grateful that someone as clever as Roger Hudson has put together a guide to migrating from WCAG 1.0 to WCAG 2.0, which he has kindly made available through the Web Industry Professional Association website here. WIPA good!
