Status of This Version


New version published.


This document was initially published on the W3C Technical Reports page on 21 July.

This document is a complete revision of the working draft dated 1998-02-16. In addition to a major rewrite and reorganization, it incorporates some technical changes to the names of certain attributes ('about' and 'resource' and adds a mechanism for making statements about the members of a collection ('aboutEach').

This draft specification is a work in progress representing the current consensus of the W3C RDF Model and Syntax Working Group. This is a W3C Working Draft for review by W3C members and other interested parties. Publication as a working draft does not imply endorsement by the W3C membership. While the design has stabilized quite a bit since the previous version and we do not anticipate substantial changes, we still caution that further changes are possible and therefore we recommend that only experimental software or software that can be easily field-upgraded be implemented to this specification at this time. The RDF Model and Syntax Working Group will not allow early implementation to constrain their ability to make changes to this specification prior to final release. This is a draft document and may be updated, replaced or obsoleted by other documents at any time. It is inappropriate to cite W3C Working Drafts as other than "work in progress".

Note: As working drafts are subject to frequent change, you are advised to reference the above address for "Latest version" rather than the addresses for specific working draft versions themselves. The latest version address is the better one to bookmark as it should point to newer revisions as they are published.
