  2009-06-15: The Semantic Web Deployment Working Group has published
  the Proposed Recommendation of SKOS Simple Knowledge Organization
  System Reference. SKOS provides a common data model for sharing and
  linking knowledge organization systems via the Web. SKOS is a
  vocabulary for expressing the basic structure and content of concept
  schemes such as thesauri, classification schemes, subject heading
  schemes, taxonomies, folksonomies, and other similar types of
  controlled vocabulary. As an application of the Resource Description
  Framework (RDF), SKOS allows concepts to be composed and published
  on the World Wide Web, linked with data on the Web and integrated
  into other concept schemes. Along with this publication of the SKOS
  Reference Proposed Recommendation the Working Group has published an
  updated SKOS Primer Working Draft. Comments are welcome through
  [15] July.

Thanks to Sean, Alistair, Antoine, Ed, and congratulations everyone.

(There's currently a typo in the review deadline on that news item; it's
actually 15 July, as in the document itself.)
