Three SPARQL 1.1 Last Call Drafts Published

The SPARQL Working Group published three Last Call Working Drafts:

  • SPARQL 1.1 Overview, which provides an introduction to a set of W3C specifications that facilitate querying and manipulating RDF graph content on the Web or in an RDF store.
  • SPARQL 1.1 Graph Store HTTP Protocol, whichd escribes the use of HTTP operations for the purpose of managing a collection of RDF graphs in the REST architectural style.
  • SPARQL 1.1 Query Results CSV and TSV Formats, which describes the use of
    CSV(comma separated values) and TSV (tab separated values) for expressing SPARQL query results from SELECT queries.

Comments are welcome through 01 June.

The group is further planning to shortly release a 2nd Last Call working draft of the SPARQL 1.1 Query Language, after which we plan to advance all Recommendation track drafts in the next iteration to Proposed Recommendation directly. To this end, the group is currently gathering implementation reports and would appreciate reports from the community of implementations of any of the SPARQL1.1 specifications.
