Upgrade Insecure Requests, and Mixed Content are W3C Candidate

       insecure resource requests to secure transport before
       fetching them.

       authenticated document.

Shapes Constraint Language (SHACL) Draft Published

   8 October 2015

   The RDF Data Shapes Working Group has published a Working Draft
   of "Shapes Constraint Language (SHACL)." SHACL (Shapes
   Constraint Language) is a language for describing and
   constraining the contents of RDF graphs. SHACL groups these
   descriptions and constraints into “shapes”, which specify
   conditions that apply at a given RDF node. Shapes provide a
   high-level vocabulary to identify predicates and their
   associated cardinalities, datatypes and other constraints.
   Additional constraints can be associated with shapes using
   SPARQL and similar extension languages. These extension
   languages can also be used to define new high-level vocabulary
   terms. SHACL shapes can be used to communicate information
   about data structures associated with some process or
   interface, generate or validate data, or drive user interfaces.
   This document defines the SHACL language and its underlying


Call for Review: W3C DOM4 Proposed Recommendation Published

   6 October 2015

Shadow DOM Draft Published

   6 October 2015

   The Web Applications Working Group has published a Working
   Draft of "Shadow DOM." This specification describes a method
   of combining multiple DOM trees into one hierarchy and how
   these trees interact with each other within a document, thus
   enabling better composition of the DOM.
