Linked Data Platform 1.0 is a W3C Recommendation

   26 February 2015 | Archive

   wd=linked-data-platform-1-0-is-a-w3c-recommendation

   The Linked Data Platform (LDP) Working Group has published a
   W3C Recommendation of "Linked Data Platform 1.0." “Linked
   Data” refers to an approach to publishing data that puts
   linking at the heart of the notion of data, and uses the
   linking technologies provided by the Web to enable the weaving
   of a global distributed database. This specification defines a
   set of rules for HTTP operations on Web resources, some based
   on RDF, to provide an architecture for read-write Linked Data
   on the Web. Learn more about the Data Activity.

   The group also published a Working Draft of "Upgrade Insecure
   Requests." This document defines a mechanism which allows
   authors to instruct a user agent to upgrade a priori insecure
   resource requests to secure transport before Fetching them.

Updated Understanding Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0

   The Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) Working Group
   today published updates of two Notes that accompany WCAG 2.0:
   "Understanding WCAG 2.0" and "Techniques for WCAG 2.0." This
   is not an update to WCAG 2.0, which is a stable document. The
   WCAG guidelines and success criteria are designed to be broadly
   applicable to current and future web technologies, including
   dynamic applications, mobile, digital television, etc. The
   supporting resources published today provide specific guidance
   — including code examples, resources, and tests — and are
   updated periodically to cover current practices for meeting
   WCAG. For an introduction to the WCAG documents, see the WCAG
   Overview. Read about the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).

   "SVG Accessibility API Mappings 1.0" (SVG-AAM) was published
   today as a First Public Working Draft by the Protocols and
   Formats Working Group and SVG Working Group. This specification
   allows SVG authors to create accessible rich internet
   applications, including charts, graphs, and other drawings. It
   provides SVG-specific guidance to define how the SVG user agent
   must respond to keyboard focus, native SVG features, and role,
   state, and property attributes provided in web content via
   WAI-ARIA . SVG-AAM is the first technology-specific module that
   provides accessibility API mapping support for features in
   WAI-ARIA 1.1; other technology-specific mappings will follow.

   Accessibility Initiative (WAI).

First Public Working Draft: Mobile Accessibility: How WCAG 2.0 and
Other W3C/WAI Guidelines Apply

   wd=first-public-working-draft-mobile-accessibility-how-wcag-2-0
   -and-other-w3cwai-guidelines-apply

   "Mobile Accessibility: How WCAG 2.0 and Other W3C/WAI
   Guidelines Apply to Mobile" was published today as a First
   Public Working Draft by the Mobile Accessibility Task Force, a
   joint Task Force of the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines
   Working Group (WCAG WG) and the User Agent Accessibility
   Guidelines Working Group (UAAG WG). This document describes how
   WCAG 2.0 principles, guidelines, and success criteria apply to
   mobile web content, mobile web apps, native apps, and hybrid
   apps using web components inside native apps. It provides
   guidance on mobile accessibility issues — such as small screen
   size, touch target size, zoom, gestures — and how they relate
   to WCAG 2.0. It links to a list of existing WCAG Techniques
   that apply to mobile.

   http://www.w3.org/WAI/GL/
   http://www.w3.org/WAI/UA/

   The document also highlights the relevance of UAAG 2.0 and ATAG
   2.0 in the mobile context, and links to UAAG 2.0 mobile
   accessibility examples. This document provides informative
   guidance, and does not set requirements. It may become a W3C
   Working Group Note, or the information may be integrated into
   "WCAG Techniques" and "Understanding WCAG." (It will not
   impact WCAG 2.0 itself; WCAG 2.0 is a stable standard that does
   not change.) For information on W3C WAI’s broader work related
   to mobile accessibility, see Mobile Accessibility. Learn more
   about the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).

   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group has published a
   Working Draft of "CSS Basic User Interface Module Level 3 (CSS3
   UI)." This specification describes user interface related
   selectors, properties and values that are proposed for CSS
   level 3 to style HTML and XML (including XHTML). It includes
   and extends user interface related features from the selectors,
   properties and values of CSS level 2 revision 1 and Selectors
   specifications. It uses various selectors, properties and
   values to style basic user interface elements in a document.

Pointer Events is a W3C Recommendation

   wd=pointer-events-is-a-w3c-recommendation

   The Pointer Events Working Group has published a W3C
   Recommendation of "Pointer Events." The Pointer Events
   specification defines a unified set of events and interfaces
   for device-neutral pointer input, such as a mouse, touchscreen,
   and pen-tablet, including capabilities for handling pointer
   pressure, contact geometry, and tilt; it also defines a mapping
   to traditional mouse events. This specification provides
   additional functionality not available in the related "Touch
   Events" specification; for more information on the relationship
   between these two specifications, see the Touch Events
   Community Group. Learn more about the Rich Web Client Activity.

Data on the Web Best Practices First Draft Published

   http://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/4428?pk_campaign=feed&pk_k
   wd=data-on-the-web-best-practices-first-draft-published

   The Data on the Web Best Practices Working Group has published
   a First Public Working Draft of "Data on the Web Best
   Practices," to encourage and enable the continued expansion of
   the Web as a medium for the exchange of data. Data should be
   discoverable and understandable by humans and machines. Where
   data is used in some way, whether by the originator of the data
   or by an external party, such usage should also be discoverable
   and the efforts of the data publisher recognized. In short,
   following these best practices will facilitate interaction
   between publishers and consumers.

   http://www.w3.org/2013/dwbp/
   http://www.w3.org/TR/2015/WD-dwbp-20150224/

   The group also published today a Group Note of "Data on the Web
   Best Practices Use Cases & Requirements" with scenarios of how
   data is commonly published on the Web and how it is used. This
   document also provides a set of requirements derived from these
   use cases that will be used to guide the development of the
   Best Practices document and also two new vocabularies: Quality
   and Granularity Description, and Data Usage Description. Learn
   more about the Data Activity.
