Two upcoming W3C Workshops on Digital Publishing

   09 April 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9778

   W3C announced today two closely related workshops, part of the
   W3C headlights 2013 exercise on Digital Publishing:

     * eBooks & i18n: Richer Internationalization for eBooks on 4
       June 2013 in Tokyo, Japan. This workshop will investigate
       international functionality that needs to be added to the
       Open Web Platform; the goal is to make the various eBook
       reading platforms suitable for electronic books that use
       the printing and typesetting traditions of different
       cultures. If you are interested in participating, please
       submit a position paper by 30 April 2013.
     * Publishing and the Open Web Platform on 16-17 September
       2013 in Paris, France. This workshop will look at the
       "back-end" processing to make the Open Web Platform
       suitable for commercial publishing, especially in print,
       all the way from authoring through to delivering the
       printed product and beyond. If you are interested in
       participating, please submit a position paper by 1 July
       2013.

Last Call: API for Media Resources 1.0

   11 April 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9786

   The Media Annotations Working Group has published a 3rd Last
   Call Working Draft of "API for Media Resources 1.0." This
   specification defines an API to access metadata information
   related to media resources on the Web. The overall purpose is
   to provide developers with a convenient access to metadata
   information stored in different metadata formats. The API
   provides means to access the set of metadata properties defined
   in the Ontology for Media Resources 1.0 specification. These
   properties are used as a pivot vocabulary in this API. The core
   of this specification is the definition of API interfaces for
   retrieving metadata information in synchronous and
   asynchronous. It also defines interfaces for structured return
   types along with the specification of the behavior of an API
   implementation. Comments are welcome through 03 June. Learn
   more about the Video in the Web Activity.

Last Call: JSON-LD 1.0, JSON-LD 1.0 Processing Algorithms and API

   11 April 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9785

   The RDF Working Group and the JSON-LD Community Group have
   published two Last Call Working Drafts today:

   http://www.w3.org/2011/rdf-wg/wiki/Main_Page
   http://json-ld.org/
     * JSON-LD 1.0. JSON-LD harmonizes the representation of
       Linked Data in JSON by describing a common JSON
       representation format for expressing directed graphs;
       mixing both Linked Data and non-Linked Data in a single
       document. The syntax is designed to not disturb already
       deployed systems running on JSON, but provide a smooth
       upgrade path from JSON to JSON-LD. It is primarily intended
       to be a way to use Linked Data in Web-based programming
       environments, to build interoperable Linked Data Web
       services, and to store Linked Data in JSON-based storage
       engines. JSON-LD is capable of serializing any RDF graph or
       dataset and most, but not all, JSON-LD documents can be
       directly transformed to RDF.
     * JSON-LD 1.0: Algorithms and API. The JSON-LD 1.0 Algorithms
       and API specification describes useful Algorithms for
       working with JSON-LD data. It also specifies an Application
       Programming Interface that can be used to transform JSON-LD
       documents in order to make them easier to work with in
       programming environments like JavaScript, Python, and Ruby.

   This is a Last Call publication for both specifications. All
   substantive technical work on the specification is complete.
   Feedback on both specifications is encouraged and should be
   sent to public-rdf-comments@w3.org. The Last Call period will
   end in 4 weeks, on May 10th 2013

   mailto:public-rdf-comments@w3.org

Internationalization Tag Set (ITS) Version 2.0 Draft Published

   11 April 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9784

   The MultilingualWeb-LT Working Group has published an updated
   working draft of "Internationalization Tag Set (ITS) Version
   2.0." The Internationalization Tag Set (ITS) 2.0 enhances the
   foundation to integrate automated processing of human language
   into core Web technologies. ITS 2.0 provides metadata to foster
   the adoption of the multilingual Web. The draft reflects
   "changes" since the "last call publication 6 December 2012" and
   asks for feedback on the "remaining open issues." Learn more
   about the Internationalization Activity.

   09 April 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9781

   The Web Applications Working Group has published a Proposed
   Recommendation of "Web Storage." This specification defines an
   API for persistent data storage of key-value pair data in Web
   clients. Comments are welcome through 07 May. Learn more about
   the Rich Web Client Activity.

Working Drafts of RDF 1.1 Semantics and TriG, N-Triples and N-Quads
published as Notes

   09 April 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9780

   The RDF Working Group has published two Working Drafts today:

   http://www.w3.org/2011/rdf-wg/
     * RDF 1.1 Semantics. This document describes a precise
       semantics for the Resource Description Framework 1.1 and
       RDF Schema. It defines a number of distinct entailment
       regimes and corresponding systems of inference rules. It is
       part of a suite of documents which comprise the full
       specification of RDF 1.1.
     * TriG. This document defines a textual syntax for RDF called
       TriG that allows an RDF dataset to be completely written in
       a compact and natural text form, with abbreviations for
       common usage patterns and datatypes. TriG is an extension
       of the Turtle format.

   The RDF Working Group also published two Group Notes today:

   http://www.w3.org/2011/rdf-wg/
     * N-Triples. N-Triples is a line-based, plain text format for
       encoding an RDF graph.
     * N-Quads. N-Quads is a line-based, plain text format for
       encoding an RDF dataset.

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9779

   The SVG Working Group has published a Working Draft of
   "Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) 2." This specification defines
   the features and syntax for Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG)
   Version 2, a language for describing two-dimensional vector and
   mixed vector/raster graphics. Although an XML serialization is
   given, processing is defined in terms of a DOM. Learn more
