Tim Berners-Lee, Marc Andreessen, Vinton Cerf, Robert Kahn, and Louis
Pouzin Awarded 2013 Queen Elizabeth Prize for Engineering

   18 March 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9763

   [] The Royal Academy of Engineering announced today that Tim
   Berners-Lee, Marc Andreessen, Vinton Cerf, Robert Kahn, and
   Louis Pouzin are the recipients of the new Queen Elizabeth
   Prize for Engineering, which recognizes "outstanding advances
   in engineering that have changed the world and benefited
   humanity." The award is shared by Berners-Lee for his invention
   of the Web, Andreessen for his work on the Mosaic browser, and
   Pouzin, Cerf, and Kahn for their pioneering work on fundamental
   Internet protocols.

   "The prize recognises what has been a roller-coaster ride of
   wonderful international collaboration," said Berners-Lee. "Bob
   and Vint’s work on building the internet was re-enforced by
   Louis’ work on datagrams and that enabled me to invent the Web.
   Marc’s determined and perceptive work built on these platforms
   a product which became widely deployed across nations and
   computing platforms. I am honoured to receive this accolade and
   humbled to share it with them. I want the Web to inspire and
   empower new generations of engineers --boys and, especially,
   girls-- who will build, in turn, their own platforms, to
   improve our global society. I hope the message behind this
   award, along with the work we are doing with the World Wide Web
   Foundation and W3C, will assist in achieving the vision of a
   web that is open, accessible and of value to all."

Eleven SPARQL 1.1 Specifications are W3C Recommendations

   21 March 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9766

   The SPARQL Working Group has completed development of its
   full-featured system for querying and managing data using the
   flexible RDF data model. It has now published eleven
   Recommendations for SPARQL 1.1, detailed in "SPARQL 1.1
   Overview." SPARQL 1.1 extends the 2008 Recommendation for
   "SPARQL 1.0" by adding features to the query language such as
   "aggregates," "subqueries," "negation," "property paths,"
   and an expanded set of "functions and operators." Beyond the
   query language, SPARQL 1.1 adds other features that were widely
   requested, including "update," "service description," a "JSON
   results format," and support for "entailment reasoning."

Runtime and Security Model for Web Applications Draft Published

   21 March 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9765

   The System Applications Working Group has published a Working
   Draft of "Runtime and Security Model for Web Applications."
   This document specifies a runtime and security model for Web
   Applications. It describes how an application is defined
   through an application manifest, and how it can be installed,
   updated and packaged. It also specifies how such an application
   can put into the background, put back in the foreground or
   woken up. Finally, the document describes the security model
   for such applications. This includes the permission model and
   the different security rules that would apply. Learn more about
   the Ubiquitous Web Applications Activity.
