These assets can be found on the X3D Specifications: XML Schema and DOCTYPE Validation page.


Full documentation updates have been autogenerated for the XML Schema and DOCTYPE validators.


The X3D Working Group also maintains the X3D Graphics Standards: Specification Relationships diagram up to date, showing the roadmap for all major planned work.


Please note that X3D version 3.4 is experimental and supports specification development.

Changes are tested through validation regression testing of 3800+ open source X3D scenes.

	X3D Resources: Examples

	X3D Resources: Quality Assurance (QA)

Corresponding updates have also been made to all of the following.

	X3D Validator

	X3D Tooltips
