I am pleased to announce that the Web of Things Working Group [1] has
published the following three documents:
* Web of Things (WoT) Thing Description - Updated WD
* Web of Things (WoT) Scripting API - Updated WD
* Web of Things (WoT) Protocol Binding Templates - First Public WG Note

1. Web of Things (WoT) Thing Description - Updated WD

This specification describes a formal model and common representation
for a Web of Things Thing Description, which describes the metadata
and interfaces of Things, where a Thing is an abstraction of a
physical entity that provides interactions to and participates in the
Web of Things. In addition to physical entities, Things can also
represent virtual entities. A Thing Description instance can be hosted
by the Thing itself or hosted externally due to Thing’s resource
restrictions (e.g. limited memory space) or when a Web of
Things-compatible legacy device is retrofitted with a Thing

2. Web of Things (WoT) Scripting API - Updated WD

This specification describes a programming interface representing the
WoT Interface that allows scripts run on a Thing to discover and
consume (retrieve) other Things and to expose Things characterized by
Properties, Actions and Events. Scripting is an optional “convenience”
building block in WoT and it is typically used in gateways that are
able to run a WoT Runtime and script management, providing a
convenient way to extend WoT support to new types of endpoints and
implement WoT applications like Thing Directory.

3. Web of Things (WoT) Protocol Binding Templates - First Public WG Note

This document describes the initial set of design pattern and
vocabulary extensions to the WoT Thing Description. Protocol Binding
Templates consist of reusable vocabulary and design pattern extensions
to the WoT Thing Description format that enable an application client
to interact, using a consistent interaction model, with Things that
expose diverse protocols and protocol usage.

Thanks a lot for your great contribution, all the Editors!
