   existing specifications and standards don't adequately address,
   and understand where new standards are needed. This Workshop is
   open in particular to social business leaders and strategists,
   federated and decentralized social Web technologists, security
   experts, and developers. W3C membership is not required to
   participate. The event is open to all. All participants are

Last Call: JSON-LD 1.0 Processing Algorithms and API

   16 May 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9827

   The RDF Working Group has published a Last Call Working Draft
   of "JSON-LD 1.0 Processing Algorithms and API." This
   specification defines an Application Programming Interface
   (API) and a set of algorithms for programmatic transformations
   of JSON-LD documents. Restructuring data according the defined
   transformations often dramatically simplifies its usage.
   Comments are welcome through 06 June. Learn more about the
   Semantic Web Activity.

Last Call: Indexed Database API

   16 May 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9826

   The Web Applications Working Group has published a Last Call
   Working Draft of "Indexed Database API." This document defines
   APIs for a database of records holding simple values and
   hierarchical objects. Each record consists of a key and some
   value. Moreover, the database maintains indexes over records it
   stores. An application developer directly uses an API to locate
   records either by their key or by using an index. A query
   language can be layered on this API. An indexed database can be
   implemented using a persistent B-tree data structure. Comments
   are welcome through 07 June. Learn more about the Rich Web
   Client Activity.

Two Drafts Published by the System Applications Working Group

   16 May 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9825

   The System Applications Working Group has published two Working
   Drafts today:

   http://www.w3.org/2012/sysapps/
     * The app: URI scheme. This specification defines the app:
       URI scheme and rules for dereferencing an app: URI, which
       can be used to address resources inside a package (e.g., a
       packaged application). The dereferencing model relies on
       HTTP semantics to return resources in a manner akin to a
       HTTP GET request. Doing so allows this URI scheme to be
       used with other technologies that rely on HTTP responses to
       function as intended, such as XHR.
     * Messaging API. This specification defines a System Level
       API which offers a simple interface to get access to mobile
       messaging services. A typical use case of the Messaging API
       is the implementation of a messaging client application
       that allows the user to send SMS and MMS messages as well
       as to access and manage the received SMS and MMS messages.
