Dear colleagues,

The RDF Working Group [1] was chartered [2] to extend RDF to include 
some new features that the community has identified as both desirable 
and important for interoperability based on experience with the 2004 
version of the standard, but without having a negative effect on 
existing deployment efforts. These new features include support for 
multiple graphs, a standard Turtle and a standard JSON syntax for RDF.

The WG is pleased to announce five Last Call Working Drafts. Apart from 
many small changes and updates the main new feature in these documents 
is the support for multiple graphs:

* RDF 1.1 Concepts and Abstract Syntax
   http://www.w3.org/TR/2013/WD-rdf11-concepts-20130723/
* RDF 1.1 Semantics
   http://www.w3.org/TR/2013/WD-rdf11-mt-20130723/
* TriG - RDF Dataset Language
   http://www.w3.org/TR/2013/WD-trig-20130919/
* N-Triples - A line-based syntax for an RDF graph
   http://www.w3.org/TR/2013/WD-n-triples-20130905/
* N-Quads - A line-based syntax for RDF datasets
   http://www.w3.org/TR/2013/WD-n-quads-20130905/

Documents specifying a Turtle and JSON syntax have already been 
announced before and are now available as Candidate Recommendations [3, 4].

We welcome comments on these documents. We would appreciate if you could 
send your comments by *17 October* to public-rdf-comments@w3.org. NOTE: 
we should have send this announcement earlier so the deadline stated in 
the documents has been extended.

Thanks in advance for your feedback!
