WebCGM 2.0 Is a Candidate Recommendation

  W3C is pleased to announce the advancement of "WebCGM 2.0" to Candidate
  Recommendation. Computer Graphics Metafile (CGM) is an ISO standard for
  the interchange of 2D vector and mixed vector/raster graphics. WebCGM
  is a profile of CGM, which adds Web linking and is optimized for Web
  applications in technical illustration, documentation, data
  visualization and similar fields. Version 2.0 adds DOM access to WebCGM
  objects, adds an XML Companion File (XCF) for external data, and
  extends graphical and intelligent content. Comments and implementation
  reports are welcome through 6 October. Six implementations of WebCGM
  2.0 are already available. Read more about WebCGM.


Last Call: XML Binding Language (XBL) 2.0

  The Web Application Formats Working Group has released a Last Call
  Working Draft of "XML Binding Language (XBL) 2.0," a technology for
  extending the appearance and behavior of elements in Web formats such
  as HTML. Comments are welcome through 7 December. With XBL, elements
  may be mapped to script, event handlers, CSS, and more complex content
  models. Content can be re-ordered and wrapped so that, for instance,
  complex CSS styles can be applied to simple HTML or XHTML markup. XBL
  can be used to implement new DOM interfaces, and, with other
  specifications, to implement arbitrary tag sets as widgets. Read
  about the Rich Web Clients Activity.


XML Query Test Suite 1.0 Released

  The XML Query Working Group has released version 1.0 of the XML Query
  Test Suite (XQTS). With this release there are over 15,000 test cases.
  The Working Group is asking implementors to submit results in September
  (anonymously if necessary) to help demonstrate that the XML Query 1.0
  specification can be implemented interoperably and is ready to move
  forward to Proposed Recommendation. Visit the XML home page.
