ISO/IEC 18019 User Documentation Standard

Subject: ISO/IEC 18019 User Documentation Standard

On Tue, 8 Feb 2000 Daniel Dresner asked for comments regarding the first
draft of this new standard, "ISO/IEC 18019 - Guidelines for the design and
preparation of software user documentation".

Does anybody know what has happened to this draft? Is there a second draft
in the meantime? Or is it a standard now?
Using the URL from Daniel's mail, leads to the first
draft, dated 2000-01-20.

At that time I was working for a mechanical engineering company and only
partially interested in software documentation. Now I work for a software
company and an internationally recognized standard could help me to write
better user guides.

If you know what happened to ISO/IEC 18019 or know other standards for
software documentation that could be helpful for a beginner in this field,
feel free to answer.

TIA and greetings from Germany
