Working drafts for RDF 1.1 Semantics, TriG, N-Triples and N-Quads published

The W3C RDF Working Group has published two Working Drafts today:

  • RDF 1.1 Semantics. This document describes a precise semantics for the Resource Description Framework 1.1 and RDF Schema. It defines a number of distinct entailment regimes and corresponding systems of inference rules. It is part of a suite of documents which comprise the full specification of RDF 1.1.
  • TriG. This document defines a textual syntax for RDF called TriG that allows an RDF dataset to be completely written in a compact and natural text form, with abbreviations for common usage patterns and datatypes. TriG is an extension of the Turtle format.

The RDF Working Group also published two Group Notes today:

  • N-Triples. N-Triples is a line-based, plain text format for encoding an RDF graph.
  • N-Quads. N-Quads is a line-based, plain text format for encoding an RDF dataset.
