I can't yet see a FIS 2324 version available on the downloads page. Is it still planned to be available today?

Hello Henry Wish,
I can't find any release notes for the FIS 23/24 release. I have checked the following page, but there are no notes for 2023/24: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/check-how-accurate-your-ilr-data-is-with-fis
Are there any changes to specification of the FIS for 23/24?

Good afternoon Peter Hancock,
I don't believe it has been updated yet as FIS 23/24 has just come out. I will find out and get back to you.
Please see link below to the updated 2324 ILR Specification that has just published this morning:
Appendices, validation rules, and schema ILR 2023 to 2024 (submit-learner-data.service.gov.uk)
