SBVR v1.1 Approved by the OMG Architecture Board
A revision of the SBVR ("Semantics of Business Vocabulary and Business Rules") specification was approved by the Object Management Group's Architecture Board on March 22, 2013. This is the first revision (v1.1) of the SBVR specification to be completed since it was first published in January 2008.
This revision focused on: changing preferred terms where they didn't naturally communicate their definitions well; providing additional clarification for and consistency among a number of existing entries; defining some undefined terms that were being significantly misinterpreted; and fixing a few internal disconnects, conflations, and duplicate entries. Version 1.1 also makes clear the difference between terms defined only for communication about vocabularies and rules, and those for which content can also be included in an SBVR Terminological Dictionary and/or Rulebook.
It is expected that SBVR v1.1 will be published for general public availability in about two months (after it completes the OMG publishing process).
When published, SBVR 1.1 will be available at http://www.omg.org/spec/SBVR/1.1/
