ONIX has made available Release 2.1 (Revision 02) of the documentation and XML DTD.
Following the original issue of Release 2.1 in June 2003, and a number of corrections and minor upgrades made in December 2003 as Revision 01, we have made a few further additions, primarily to support the special needs of ONIX implementations in Australia and Canada. These are incorporated into the latest download packages, as Revision 02. Most users will be completely unaffected by these additions, and you do NOT need to change the release number in the header of your ONIX messages. The additional level of revision numbering within the release number is used only for purposes of controlling successive minor revisions: see ONIX for Books -- Product Information Message -- XML Message Specification, Section 5.

A few corrections and improvements have been made in the Release 2.1 documentation in February 2005. These do NOT affect the DTD or Schema, but users should download the revised documentation package and replace their existing copies with the latest versions.

Again, I ask does anybody have access to ONIX records or are the publishers treating them as proprietary data?
