W3C Launches RDFa Working Group

   02 February 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8711

   W3C launched today the RDFa Working Group, whose mission is to
   support the use of RDFa, a format for embedding structured data
   in Web documents. The Working Group's goals include making it
   easier to author RDFa, promoting continued adoption of the
   technology in HTML, XHTML, and XML, and helping developers
   create RDFa applications. The group is chartered to extend and
   enhance "RDFa 1.0," including the specification of an API. The
   Working Group will also support the HTML Working Group in its
   work on incorporating RDFa in HTML5 and XHTML5 (as a followup
   on the the currently published "Working Draft for RDFa 1.0 in
   HTML5)." Learn more about the Semantic Web.

Last Call for Two XML Signature Drafts; Other Drafts Updated

   04 February 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8712

   The XML Security Working Group published two Last Call Working
   Drafts:

   http://www.w3.org/2008/xmlsec/
     * XML Signature Syntax and Processing 1.1, which specifies
       XML syntax and processing rules for creating and
       representing digital signatures. XML Signatures can be
       applied to any digital content, including XML.
     * XML Signature Properties, which outlines proposed standard
       XML Signature Properties syntax and processing rules and an
       associated namespace for these properties. The intent is
       these can be composed with any version of XML Signature
       using the XML SignatureProperties element.

   The group welcomes Last Call comments through 18 March. The
   group also published several other drafts today: "XML Security
   1.1 Requirements and Design Considerations," "XML Security
   RELAX NG Schemas," "XML Security 2.0 Requirements and Design
   Considerations," "XML Signature Transform Simplification:
   Requirements and Design," and "XML Signature Best Practices."

Comments Welcome on First Draft of The System Information API

   02 February 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8710

   The Device APIs and Policy Working Group has published the
   First Public Working Draft of "The System Information API."
   This specification defines an API to provide Web applications
   with access to various properties of the system which they are
   running on. Specifically, properties pertaining to the device
   hardware are addressed. Examples include battery status,
   current network bandwidth. Additionally, some of those
   properties offer access to the environment around the device,
   such as ambient brightness or atmospheric pressure. Learn more
   about the Ubiquitous Web Applications Activity.
