Subject: XLink 1.1 is a W3C Recommendation

Dear Advisory Committee Representative,

I am pleased to announce that XML Linking Language (XLink) Version 1.1  
has been published as a W3C Recommendation:

    XML Linking Language (XLink) Version 1.1

All Members who responded to the Call for Review [1] of the document  
supported the publication of this specification as a W3C  
Recommendation; one Member (Innovomax) requested changes: a typo,  
which has been corrected, and an appendix listing changes, which was  
added. See more below on the disposition of comments.

This version of XLink references the LEIRI (Legacy IRI) specification  
rather than containing the text itself; it also supports a usage which  
has already become widespread in practice, of using xlink:href without  
a corresponding xlink:type attribute.

W3C would like to thank the XML Core Working Group [2] for their  
continuing work.

This message follows section 7.4.5 of the Process [3].

For Tim Berners-Lee, W3C Director, and
Philipp Hoschka, Ubiquitous Web Domain Lead;
Ian Jacobs, Head of W3C Communications.

Disposition of Comments

Various minor typos were fixed, particularly in the Schema for XLink  
(which is not normative). Two comments were rejected as being out of  
scope, although the Working Group did not rule out revisiting the  
isues if more work should be done in the area of XML linking in the  
future. See the disposition of comments for more information:

XML Linking Language (XLink) Version 1.1
W3C Recommendation 06 May 2010


This specification defines the XML Linking Language (XLink) Version  
1.1, which allows elements to be inserted into XML documents in order  
to create and describe links between resources. It uses XML syntax to  
create structures that can describe links similar to the simple  
unidirectional hyperlinks of today's HTML, as well as more  
sophisticated links.


This document is a W3C Recommendation. It implements all of the XLink  
1.1 requirements documented in [Extending XLink 1.0]. This document is  
a product of the XML Core Working Group as part of the W3C XML Activity.

This edition supersedes the previous W3C Recommendation of 27 June 2001.

Please report errors in this document to the public
  mailing list; public archives are available.

There is an Implementation Report for XLink 1.1. A Test Suite is  
maintained to help assessing the conformance to this specification.

This document has been reviewed by W3C Members, by software  
developers, and by other W3C groups and interested parties, and is  
endorsed by the Director as a W3C Recommendation. It is a stable  
document and may be used as reference material or cited from another  
document. W3C's role in making the Recommendation is to draw attention  
to the specification and to promote its widespread deployment. This  
enhances the functionality and interoperability of the Web.

This document was produced by a group operating under the 5 February  
2004 W3C Patent Policy. W3C maintains a public list of any patent  
disclosures made in connection with the deliverables of the group;  
that page also includes instructions for disclosing a patent. An  
individual who has actual knowledge of a patent which the individual  
believes contains Essential Claim(s) must disclose the information in  
accordance with section 6 of the W3C Patent Policy.
