XQuery 3.0, XPath 3.0, XQueryX 3.0, XDM 3.0, Serialization 3.0, Functions and Operators 3.0 are now W3C Recommendations
10 April 2014 | Archive
The XML Query Working Group published XQuery 3.0: An XML Query Language, along with XQueryX, an XML representation for XQuery, both as W3C Recommendations, as well as the XQuery 3.0 Use Cases and Requirements as final Working Group Notes. XQuery extends the XPath language to provide efficient search and manipulation of information represented as trees from a variety of sources.
The XML Query Working Group and XSLT Working Group also jointly published W3C Recommendations of XML Path Language (XPath) 3.0, a widely-used language for searching and pointing into tree-based structures, together with XQuery and XPath Data Model 3.0 which defines those structures, XPath and XQuery Functions and Operators 3.0 which provides facilities for use in XPath, XQuery, XSLT and a number of other languages, and finally the XSLT and XQuery Serialization 3.0 specification giving a way to turn values and XDM instances into text, HTML or XML.

Requirements for IndieUI: Events 1.0 and IndieUI: User Context 1.0 First Public Working Draft Published
22 April 2014 | Archive
The Independent User Interface (Indie UI) Working Group today published the First Public Working Draft of Requirements for IndieUI: Events 1.0 and IndieUI: User Context 1.0. The document introduces use cases related to the IndieUI specifications and the technical requirements for meeting the use cases. IndieUI: Events defines a way for different user interactions to be translated into simple events and communicated to web applications. With IndieUI, web application developers will have a uniform way to design applications that work for multiple devices and contexts. It is introduced in the IndieUI Overview. One focus of IndieUI is enabling better user interaction in the mobile environment. This Requirements document provides an opportunity for early review of user needs to be addressed by the IndieUI specifications. Learn more about the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).
SVG Integration Draft Published
17 April 2014 | Archive
The SVG Working Group has published a Working Draft of SVG Integration. This specification details requirements on how SVG documents must be processed when used in various contexts, such as CSS background images, HTML ‘iframe’ elements, and so on. These requirements include which features are restricted or disabled, such as scripting and animation. A number of referencing modes are defined, which other specifications that allow the embedding or referencing of SVG documents can normatively reference. Learn more about the Graphics Activity.
XML Entity Definitions for Characters (2nd Edition), and Mathematical Markup Language (MathML) Version 3.0 2nd Edition are W3C Recommendations
10 April 2014 | Archive
The Math Working Group has published two W3C Recommendations today:
- XML Entity Definitions for Characters (2nd Edition). This document defines several sets of names, so that to each name is assigned a Unicode character or sequence of characters. Each of these sets is expressed as a file of XML entity declarations.
- Mathematical Markup Language (MathML) Version 3.0 2nd Edition. This specification defines the Mathematical Markup Language, or MathML. MathML is a markup language for describing mathematical notation and capturing both its structure and content. The goal of MathML is to enable mathematics to be served, received, and processed on the World Wide Web, just as HTML has enabled this functionality for text.
