There are two new Editors Drafts for RDFa Lite 1.1 and HTML+RDFa 1.1.

RDFa Lite 1.1


Changes for RDFa Lite 1.1:

* Cleaned up the conformance section to make normative statements about
   what constitutes an RDFa Lite 1.1 Document. This establishes RDFa Lite
   as a REC track document.
* Removed processor conformance and user agent conformance sections
   since RDFa Lite is about a subset of RDFa syntax. Processor
   conformance and user agent conformance is defined in RDFa Core and
   the Host Language documents.
* Removed the dependency on the HTML5 spec so that RDFa Lite can be
   applied to other Host Languages while simultaneously making HTML5+RDFa
   depend on the RDFa Lite spec.

Changes for HTML+RDFa 1.1:

* Created a dependency to the RDFa Lite specification so that there are
   clear document conformance rules for HTML+RDFa 1.1 and HTML+RDFa Lite
* Added language to allow LINK and META elements in the body of a
   document if they contain RDFa attributes. This is to bring HTML+RDFa
   in line with the HTML Data Task Force's desire to have META and LINK
   allowed in the body (which Microdata also allows).
* Added support for the @datetime and @value attributes.
