Some changes were made to standards deposits beginning with schema version 4.3.2. We are also making changes to our query logic to accommodate these changes, specifically the new <standard_designator> element. This element has been added to the query input schema as well. When the new query logic is released, the standard designator may be included in queries for standards.
The addition of the standard_designator element is significant enough that we will require all standards deposits to use the crossref4.3.3.xsd deposit schema. The date of this change is TBD, we'll contact all members currently depositing standards before we make this change. Please send any comments to firstname.lastname@example.org

We are deploying a change today that will affect our CMS subscribers: the initial request for OAI-PMH data will have a longer response time, but subsequent requests using resumption tokes will be much quicker.

In recent months we've made some schema changes to deposit schema that will allow publishers to deposit additional or enhanced metadata. All schema versions from 4.3.0 on are backwards compatible and valid for current deposits.
Schema version 4.3.3:
Schema version 4.3.2:

The use of both 'funder_identifier' and 'funding_identifier' has caused some confusion, so we're changing 'funding_identifier' to 'award_number'. The change will be deployed within the next 24 hours, we'll update the announcement when the change has been made. FundRef is still in the pilot stage so we anticipate this change will not be overly disruptive.
Both the help documentation (http://help.crossref.org/#fundref) and 4.3.1. schema documentation (http://www.crossref.org/schema/documentation/4.3.1/4.3.1.html) have been updated.
