Tab, Anne, Robin,

This is a response to your Last Call comment on the JSON-LD API. The
issue is being tracked here:

http://www.w3.org/2011/rdf-wg/track/issues/125

Each of you had suggested that the JSON-LD API should use Futures
instead of node.js-style continuation callbacks. The JSON-LD group
debated the topic here:

http://json-ld.org/minutes/2013-04-16/#topic-2

and here:

http://json-ld.org/minutes/2013-04-23/#topic-1

and here:

http://json-ld.org/minutes/2013-04-30/#topic-2

In the end, the JSON-LD group agreed that if the direction of the Web
platform is Futures, that the API should align with that direction. The
JSON-LD API is now completely Future's based:

https://dvcs.w3.org/hg/json-ld/raw-file/default/spec/WD/json-ld-api/20130514/index.html

The group believes that this addresses each of your concerns regarding
the asynchronous API style used for JSON-LD 1.0.

Please respond to this e-mail as soon as possible to confirm that you
are happy with the changes.
