The previous XML Schema 2.0 was adapted and replaced by the new XML Schema 3.0:

  • UnitsML

Until now, no speaking name for units existed. Analogous to all other ECLASS structural elements, the preferred name for units was introduced and filled initially.

  • IRDIs of KW/SY

So far not part of the XML, the IRDIs of Keywords and Synonyms are now content the ECLASS XML.

  • Deprecation information

Until now, the information about deprecated structure elements are consolidated in a separate area at the end of the XML. Beginning with ECLASS Release 11.0 this information is now embedded into its respective context.
