The RDF Working Group [1] has published the documents of the RDF 1.1 
document suite as Proposed (Edited) Recommendation. Together, these 
documents provide significant updates  and extensions of the 2004 RDF 
specification. For example:

* Multiple graphs are now part of the RDF data model [2].
* Turtle [3] is included in the standard and is as much as possible
    aligned with SPARQL.
* TriG [4] is an extension of Turtle and provides a syntax for multiple
    graphs. Any Turtle document is also a valid TriG document.
* N-Triples [5] and N-Quads [6] are corresponding line-based
    exchange formats.
* JSON-LD [7] provides an exciting new connection
    between the RDF and JSON worlds.

In "What's New in RDF 1.1" [8] you can find a detailed description of 
the new and updated features. The Working Group has also published the 
first version of a new RDF Primer [9] and a note on semantics of 
multiple graphs [10]. Comments very welcome!
