X3D Standards for Version v3.1

Extensible 3D (X3D) Graphics and Humanoid Animation (H-Anim) include a coordinated set of steadily evolving ISO standards. The Web3D Consortium Standards Strategy carefully improves and evolves our standards while maintaining long-term archival stability. These standards are developed, tested, maintained and updated by Web3D Consortium members. Following public comment and approval by the Web3D Consortium, they are submitted to International Standards Organization (ISO) for a series of annual reviews. The X3D Working Group proceeds at the best speed supported by member and public contributions.

Stable progress is paramount: we only advance standards when they are ready. Backwards compatibility is maintained to the fullest extent possible, and so older versions of the X3D (and even VRML97) remain consistently correct and validatable in the latest version 3.3 of the X3D International Standard. The Consoritum has documented their Standards Adoption Process. Questions, comments and contributions are always welcome.
