Some of the presentations from the 11th XBRL International Conference, which
took place in Boston during the week of April 25, are now available at .
Presentations that I found useful included the Tuesday General Track
presentations by Otmar Winzig of Software AG and Elmer Huh of Morgan Stanley, as
well as the Wednesday Plenary Session presentation by José María Roldán of the Committee of
European Banking Supervisors (CEBS).

The XBRL International website also contains a new, updated version of the
XBRL 2.1 specification, along with a newly released conformance suite
. There
are also two new documents
that provide guidance for the construction of XBRL taxonomies. The first is
a recommendation for the Financial Reporting Taxonomies Architecture (FRTA), and
the second is an FRTA conformance suite.
