W3C to Participate in SVG Open 2010

   23 March 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8754

   With SVG support announced for all major browsers, there is an
   uptake in interest in SVG. W3C joins other sponsors to help
   with SVG Open 2010, the 8th international conference on
   Scalable Vector Graphics, to be held in Paris, France from
   August 30 to September 1, 2010. SVG Open provides an
   opportunity for designers, developers and implementers to learn
   about SVG, and share ideas, experiences, products, and
   strategies. Members of the W3C SVG Working Group, including W3C
   Team members Chris Lilley and Doug Schepers, will be attending
   and presenting at the conference, which will include a Working
   Group panel session on future SVG developments, and an
   implementers panel. The conference includes a day of workshops.
   The conference organizers welcome proposals for presentation
   abstracts and course outlines through 31 March. Learn more
   about the W3C Graphics Activity.

W3C Launches WebFonts Working Group

   18 March 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8752

   W3C launched today the new WebFonts Working Group, which aims
   to bring typographic richness on the Web to it’s full
   potential. Font linking mechanisms are already standardized or
   in development, so the group will focus on WOFF, an
   interoperable font format for the Web. The group will work in
   public and will consult widely with the typographic community.
   Read the WebFonts WG charter, join the group, and learn more
   about Fonts on the Web.

Four XML Security Drafts Published

   16 March 2010 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2010#entry-8749

   The XML Security Working Group published four Working Drafts
   today:

   http://www.w3.org/2008/xmlsec/
     * XML Encryption Syntax and Processing Version 1.1, which
       specifies a process for encrypting data and representing
       the result in XML.
     * XML Security RELAX NG Schemas, which serves to publish
       RELAX NG schemas for XML Security specifications, including
       XML Signature 1.1, and XML Signature Properties.
     * XML Security Generic Hybrid Ciphers. This document augments
       XML Encryption Version 1.1 by defining algorithms, XML
       types and elements necessary to enable use of generic
       hybrid ciphers in XML Security applications. Generic hybrid
       ciphers allow for a consistent treatment of asymmetric
       ciphers when encrypting data and consist of a key
       encapsulation algorithm with associated parameters and a
       data encapsulation algorithm with associated parameters.
     * XML Security Algorithm Cross-Reference, which summarizes
       XML Security algorithm URI identifiers and the
       specifications associated with them.

   Learn more about the Security Activity.
