XQuery and XPath Full Text 1.0; Use Cases Updated

   28 January 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8709

   The XML Query Working Group and the XSL Working Group have
   jointly published an update to the Candidate Recommendation of
   "XQuery and XPath Full Text 1.0," and to the companion "Use
   Cases." The former defines the syntax and formal semantics of
   XQuery and XPath Full Text 1.0 which is a language that extends
   XQuery 1.0 and XPath 2.0 with full-text search capabilities.

Method for Writing Testable Conformance Requirements Published as
Working Group Note

   28 January 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8708

   The Mobile Web Initiative Test Suites Working Group has
   published the First Public Working Group Note of "A Method for
   Writing Testable Conformance Requirements." This document
   presents a method for writing, marking-up, and analyzing
   conformance requirements in technical specifications that can
   help other Working Groups develop better specifications more
   quickly. Learn more about testing-related work in W3C.

Report Examines Access Control, Privacy Issues

   28 January 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8707

   W3C has published a report and full minutes of the Workshop on
   Access Control Application Scenarios, held in Luxembourg in
   November 2009. Participants from 17 organizations examined the
   current limitations of access control, privacy enhancement,
   distributed handling of access control, and other challenging
   use cases. eXtensible Access Control Markup Language (XACML)
   was a focus of the Workshop, though not the exclusive topic of
   conversation. The report summarizes the major "takeaways" from
   the Workshop, related to XACML semantics, "sticky" policies,
   and credentials-based access control. The OASIS XACML Technical
   Committee is expected to take up these topics. W3C's Policy
   Languages Interest Group (PLING) is expected to discuss data
   handling policies and the matching and triggering of events in
   the privacy context.

W3C Seeks Feedback on Early Draft of SPARQL 1.1 Property Paths; Six
SPARQL Drafts Updated

   27 January 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8706

   The SPARQL Working Group has published a First Public Working
   Draft of "SPARQL 1.1 Property Paths," which defines a more
   succinct way to write parts of basic graph patterns and also
   extend matching of triple pattern to arbitrary length paths.
   The group also published six updates, listed below. The group
   seeks feedback on open issues in particular. Learn more about
   the Semantic Web.

   http://www.w3.org/2009/sparql/track/issues/open
   http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/
     * SPARQL 1.1 Query adds support for aggregates, subqueries,
       projected expressions, and negation to the SPARQL query
       language.
     * SPARQL 1.1 Update defines an update language for RDF
       graphs.
     * SPARQL 1.1 Protocol for RDF defines an abstract interface
       and HTTP bindings for a protocol to issue SPARQL Query and
       SPARQL Update statements against a SPARQL endpoint.
     * SPARQL 1.1 Service Description defines a vocabulary and
       discovery mechanism for describing the capabilities of a
       SPARQL endpoint.
     * SPARQL 1.1 Uniform HTTP Protocol for Managing RDF Graphs
       describes the use of the HTTP protocol for managing named
       RDF graphs on an HTTP server.
     * SPARQL 1.1 Entailment Regimes defines conditions under
       which SPARQL queries can be used with entailment regimes
       such as RDF, RDF Schema, OWL, or RIF.

UK Government Launches Open Data Site

   26 January 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8705

   The UK Government has unveiled its open data website,
   data.gov.uk, developed with the help of Tim Berners-Lee (W3C
   Director) and John Sheridan (Linked Data Lead for data.gov.uk
   and co-Chair of the W3C eGovernment Interest Group). Like
   data.gov in the United States, the UK site reflects a growing
   awareness inside and outside of government that standards-based
   open data is a key enabler of government services and a
   building block for new information services across government
   and industry. Additionally, this new site showcases Semantic
   Web and Linked Data technologies. Learn more about "Publishing
   Open Government Data" and eGovernment at W3C.

Uniform Messaging Policy, Level One Draft Published

   26 January 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8704

   The Web Applications Working Group has published the First
   Public Working Draft of "Uniform Messaging Policy, Level One."
   The Uniform Messaging Policy (UMP) enables cross-site messaging
   that avoids Cross-Site-Request-Forgery and similar attacks that
   abuse HTTP cookies and other credentials. For example, content
   from customer.example.org can safely specify requests to
   resources determined by service.example.com. Rather than
   restricting information retrieval to a single origin, as the
   Same Origin Policy almost does, the Uniform Messaging Policy
   supports origin independent messaging. Learn more about the
   Rich Web Client Activity.
