Turtle, the Terse RDF Triple Language, was published by the RDF Working Group as a Candidate Recommendation. This document is intended to become a W3C Recommendation. Turtle is a concrete syntax for RDF. A Turtle document allows writing down an RDF graph in a compact textual form.
W3C publishes a Candidate Recommendation to indicate that the document is believed to be stable and to encourage implementation by the developer community. This Candidate Recommendation is expected to advance to Proposed Recommendation in the course of 2013.
The RDF Working Group specifically solicits implementations of Turtle and submission of implementation reports. Please send implementation reports and any other comments to firstname.lastname@example.org (subscribe, archives). The Candidate Recommendation period ends 26 March 2013. All feedback is welcome.
