Call for Review: WebCGM 2.1 Proposed Recommendation Published

   14 January 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8696

   The WebCGM Working Group has published a Proposed
   Recommendation of "WebCGM 2.1." Computer Graphics Metafile
   (CGM) is an ISO standard, defined by ISO/IEC 8632:1999, 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,
   electronic documentation, geophysical data visualization, and
   similar fields. WebCGM 2.1, refines and completes the features
   of the major WebCGM 2.0 release. WebCGM 2.0 added a DOM (API)
   specification for programmatic access to WebCGM objects, a
   specification of an XML Companion File (XCF) architecture, and
   extended the graphical and intelligent content of WebCGM 1.0.
   Comments are welcome through 31 January. Learn more about the
   Graphics Activity.

   elected Daniel Appelquist (Vodafone) and Henry Thompson (U. of
   Edinburgh) to the W3C Technical Architecture Group (TAG). The
   Director has appointed Ashok Malhotra (Oracle), Noah
   Mendelsohn, and Jonathan Rees. This outcome reflects the

   Original message from 11 January: The W3C Advisory Committee
   has re-elected Ashok Malhotra (Oracle) and Henry Thompson (U.
   of Edinburgh) to the W3C Technical Architecture Group (TAG).
   Continuing TAG participants are John Kemp (Nokia), Larry
   Masinter (Adobe), T.V. Raman (Google). The Director is also
   expected to appoint three individuals very soon. The mission of
   the TAG is to build consensus around principles of Web
   architecture and to interpret and clarify these principles when
   necessary, to resolve issues involving general Web architecture
   brought to the TAG, and to help coordinate cross-technology
   architecture developments inside and outside W3C.
