HTML5 määritysvaihe valmis, seuraavaksi testausta ja suorituskykyanalyysiä

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2012-12-17 , uutislähde )

W3C published today the complete definition of the HTML5 and Canvas 2D specifications. Though not yet W3C standards, these specifications are now feature complete, meaning businesses and developers have a stable target for implementation and planning. "As of today, businesses know what they can rely on for HTML5 in the coming years, and what their customers will demand," said Jeff Jaffe, W3C CEO. HTML5 is the cornerstone of the Open Web Platform, a full programming environment for cross-platform applications with access to device capabilities; video and animations; graphics; style, typography, and other tools for digital publishing; extensive network capabilities; and more. Read the full press release and W3C Member testimonials.

To reduce browser fragmentation and extend implementations to the full range of tools that consume and produce HTML, W3C now embarks on the stage of W3C standardization devoted to interoperability and testing. W3C is on schedule to finalize the HTML5 standard in 2014. In parallel, the W3C community will continue its work on next generation HTML features, including extensions to complement built-in HTML5 accessibility, responsive images, and adaptive streaming.

The HTML Working Group also published first drafts of HTML 5.1, HTML Canvas 2D Context, Level 2, and main element, providing an early view of the next round of standardization. Learn more About HTML.

Suositusehdotus: Selectors API Level 1

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2012-12-13 , uutislähde )

The Web Applications Working Group has published a Proposed Recommendation of Selectors API Level 1. Selectors, which are widely used in CSS, are patterns that match against elements in a tree structure. The Selectors API specification defines methods for retrieving Element nodes from the DOM by matching against a group of selectors. It is often desirable to perform DOM operations on a specific set of elements in a document. These methods simplify the process of acquiring specific elements, especially compared with the more verbose techniques defined and used in the past. Comments are welcome through 25 January. Learn more about the Rich Web Client Activity.

W3C-raportti: Web and Automotive Workshop: Shift into High Gear on the Web

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2012-12-12 , uutislähde )

W3C today published the report of the W3C Web and Automotive Workshop: Shift into High Gear on the Web, hosted by Intel on 14-15 November 2012 in Rome, Italy, and sponsored by QNX and Webinos.

This workshop provided a way for the participants to focus on opportunities and challenges for exploiting Web technologies within the car, and what kinds of standards work may be needed to realize the potential. The Workshop participants reached a broad consensus that HTML5 is a compelling basis for automotive, and that it is now timely to launch standardization of user centric vehicle APIs in order to avoid the risk of fragmentation from competing approaches. Other aspects were identified, such as safety, network and devices integration, business and advertising.

The Workshop prioritized work on use cases and requirements, security/policy mechanisms, a user centric vehicle API and a reference model. The next steps are likely to include further outreach with the aim of launching a standards activity; W3C staff will work with stakeholders to identify opportunities for launching work in support of standards for Web and Automotive.

CSS Writing Modes Module Level 3, CSS Masking, luonnoksia

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2012-11-15 , uutislähde )

The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group has published a Working Draft of CSS Writing Modes Module Level 3. CSS Writing Modes Level 3 defines CSS support for various international writing modes, such as left-to-right (e.g. Latin or Indic), right-to-left (e.g. Hebrew or Arabic), bidirectional (e.g. mixed Latin and Arabic) and vertical (e.g. Asian scripts).

The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group and the SVG Working Group have published the First Public Working Draft of CSS Masking. CSS Masking provides two means for partially or fully hiding portions of visual elements: masking and clipping. Masking describes how to use another graphical element or image as a luminance or alpha mask. Typically, rendering an element via CSS or SVG can conceptually described as if the element, including its children, are drawn into a buffer and then that buffer is composited into the element's parent. Luminance and alpha masks influence the transparency of this buffer before the compositing stage. Clipping describes the visible region of visual elements. The region can be described by using certain SVG graphics elements or basic shapes. Anything outside of this region is not rendered.

Uusi työryhmä: Pointer Events

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2012-11-09 , uutislähde )

W3C announced today the launch of the Pointer Events Working Group. Web browsers can receive input in a variety of ways. A “pointer” is an abstract form of input that can be any point of contact on a input surface made by a mouse cursor, pen, finger, or multiple fingers. The mission of this group is to define a single unified event model for mouse, touch, and pen/tablet user interfaces. Enabling content creators to use a single model for different input types will make content creation more efficient and inclusive. See the Pointer Events Working Group Charter for more information.

The Workshop is also supported through sponsorships from QNX and Webinos.

SPARQL 1.1 -julkaisuja

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2012-11-08 , uutislähde )

The SPARQL Working Group has today published a set of eleven documents, advancing most of SPARQL 1.1 to Proposed Recommendation. Building on the success of SPARQL 1.0, SPARQL 1.1 is a full-featured standard system for working with RDF data, including a query/update language, two HTTP protocols (one full-featured, one using basic HTTP verbs), three result formats, and other features which allow SPARQL endpoints to be combined and work together. Most features of SPARQL 1.1 have already been implemented by a range of SPARQL suppliers, as shown in our table of implementations and test results.

The Proposed Recommendations are:

  1. SPARQL 1.1 Overview - Overview of SPARQL 1.1 and the SPARQL 1.1 documents
  2. SPARQL 1.1 Query Language - A query language for RDF data.
  3. SPARQL 1.1 Update - Specifies additions to the query language to allow clients to update stored data
  4. SPARQL 1.1 Query Results JSON Format - How to use JSON for SPARQL query results
  5. SPARQL 1.1 Query Results CSV and TSV Formats - How to use comma-separated values (CVS) and tab-separated values (TSV) for SPARQL query results
  6. SPARQL Query Results XML Format - How to use XML for SPARQL query results. (This contains only minor, editorial updates from SPARQL 1.0, and is actually a Proposed Edited Recommendation.)
  7. SPARQL 1.1 Federated Query - an extension of the SPARQL 1.1 Query Language for executing queries distributed over different SPARQL endpoints.
  8. SPARQL 1.1 Service Description - a method for discovering and a vocabulary for describing SPARQL services.

The following are Candidate Recommendations, as the group still seeks more feedback from implementors:

  1. SPARQL 1.1 Entailment Regimes - defines the semantics of SPARQL queries under entailment regimes such as RDF Schema, OWL, or RIF.
  2. SPARQL 1.1 Protocol for RDF - A protocol defining means for conveying arbitrary SPARQL queries and update requests to a SPARQL service.
  3. SPARQL 1.1 Graph Store HTTP Protocol - As opposed to the full SPARQL protocol, this specification defines minimal means for managing RDF graph content directly via common HTTP operations.

The group has also produced a test suite and a page on using SPARQL 1.1 with RDF 1.1. Learn more about the Semantic Web.

Online Symposium: Text Customization for Readability

Registration is now open for the online symposium on Text Customization for Readability to be held on 19 November 2012. This symposium brings together researchers, practitioners, and users with disabilities to explore the needs of people with low vision, dyslexia, and other conditions and situations that impact reading. It focuses specifically on text customization requirements and functionality, that is, providing users the ability to change (or personalize) specific aspects of text display to improve readability for their particular needs. For details and registration, see Text Customization for Readability - Online Symposium. To share your perspectives on text customization for readability, see Invitation for short contributions. Learn more about the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).

CSS Grid Layout, luonnos

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2012-11-06 , uutislähde )

The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group has published a Working Draft of CSS Grid Layout. Grid Layout contains features targeted at web application authors. The Grid can be used to achieve many different layouts. It excels at dividing up space for major regions of an application, or defining the relationship in terms of size, position, and layer between parts of a control built from HTML primitives. Like tables, the Grid enables an author to align elements into columns and rows, but unlike tables, the Grid doesn't have content structure, and thus enables a wide variety of layouts not possible with tables. In addition, the absence of content structure in the Grid helps to manage changes to layout by using fluid and source order independent layout techniques. By combining media queries with the CSS properties that control layout of the Grid and its children, authors can adapt their layout to changes in device form factors, orientation, and available space, without needing to alter the semantic nature of their content. Learn more about the Style Activity.

Publishing and Linking on the Web, viimeinen kommentoitava luonnos

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2012-10-25 , uutislähde )

The Technical Architecture Group has published a Last Call Working Draft of Publishing and Linking on the Web. Publishing a page on the Web is fundamentally different from printing and distributing a page in a magazine or book. This document is intended to inform future social and legal discussions of the Web by clarifying the ways in which the Web's technical facilities operate to store, publish and retrieve information, and by providing definitions for terminology as used within the Web's technical community. This document also describes the technical and operational impact that does or could result from legal constraints on publishing, linking and transformation on the Web. Comments are welcome through 13 December. Learn more about the Technical Architecture Group.

File API, luonnos

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2012-10-25 , uutislähde )

The Web Applications Working Group has published a Working Draft of File API. Web applications should have the ability to manipulate as wide as possible a range of user input, including files that a user may wish to upload to a remote server or manipulate inside a rich web application. This specification defines the basic representations for files, lists of files, errors raised by access to files, and programmatic ways to read files. Additionally, this specification also defines an interface that represents "raw data" which can be asynchronously processed on the main thread of conforming user agents. The interfaces and API defined in this specification can be used with other interfaces and APIs exposed to the Open Web Platform. Learn more about the Rich Web Client Activity.

Filter Effects 1.0, luonnos

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2012-10-25 , uutislähde )

The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group has published the First Public Working Draft of Filter Effects 1.0. Filter effects are a way of processing an element's rendering before it is displayed in the document. Typically, rendering an element via CSS or SVG can conceptually described as if the element, including its children, are drawn into a buffer (such as a raster image) and then that buffer is composited into the elements parent. Filters apply an effect before the compositing stage. Examples of such effects are blurring, changing color intensity and warping the image. Learn more about the Style Activity.

Best Practices for Fragment Identifiers and Media Type Definitions, viimeinen kommentoitava luonnos

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2012-10-25 , uutislähde )

The Technical Architecture Group has published a Last Call Working Draft of Best Practices for Fragment Identifiers and Media Type Definitions. Fragment identifiers (fragids) within URIs are specified as being interpreted based on the media type of a representation. Media type definitions therefore have to provide details about how fragids are interpreted for that media type. This document recommends best practices for the authors of media type definitions, for the authors of structured syntax suffix registrations (such as +xml), for the authors of specifications that define fragid structures, and for authors that publish documents that are intended to be used with fragids or who refer to fragments within documents using URIs with fragids. Comments are welcome through 13 December. Learn more about the Technical Architecture Group.

Web MIDI API, luonnos

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2012-10-25 , uutislähde )

The Audio Working Group has published the First Public Working Draft of Web MIDI API. This specification defines an API supporting the MIDI protocol, enabling web applications to enumerate and select MIDI input and output devices on the client system and send and receive MIDI messages. It is intended to enable non-music MIDI applications as well as music ones, by providing low-level access to the MIDI devices available on the users' systems. At the same time, the Web MIDI API is not intended to become a semantic controller platform; it is designed to expose the mechanics of MIDI input and output interfaces, and the practical aspects of sending and receiving MIDI messages, without identifying what those actions might mean semantically.

Internationalization Tag Set (ITS) Version 2.0, luonnos

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2012-08-29 , uutislähde )

The MultilingualWeb-LT Working Group has published a Working Draft of Internationalization Tag Set (ITS) Version 2.0. Content or software that is authored in one language (the source language) is often made available in additional languages or adapted with regard to other cultural aspects. This is done through a process called localization, where the original material is translated and adapted to the target audience. In addition, document formats expressed by schemas may be used by people in different parts of the world, and these people may need special markup to support the local language or script. For example, people authoring in languages such as Arabic, Hebrew, Persian, or Urdu need special markup to specify directionality in mixed direction text.

ITS 2.0 is a technology to add metadata to Web content, for the benefit of localization, language technologies, and internationalization. Learn more about the Internationalization Activity.

W3C-raportti: Using Open Data: Policy Modeling, Citizen Empowerment, Data Journalism

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2012-07-20 , uutislähde )

As part of its ongoing commitment to eGovernment and its participation in the EU-funded Crossover Project, W3C ran a very successful workshop last month in Brussels titled Using Open Data: policy modeling, citizen empowerment, data journalism. Today W3C published the Workshop report, which summarizes discussions about the interplay between open government data, citizens and policy makers, challenging certain assumptions sometimes made about open government data.

Several themes emerged from the workshop. For example, social media plays an important route through which governments can access citizen reactions. The combination of open government data and social media data is surely a critical aspect of future policy modeling. Read the full report for more about discussions of the value chain from raw data, through processing and interpretation, to data that is of actual use and interest and that can form the basis of active engagement with citizens.

Muistio: Registration and Discovery of Multimodal Modality Components in Multimodal Systems: Use Cases and Requirements

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2012-07-05 , uutislähde )

The Multimodal Interaction Working Group has published a Group Note of Registration and Discovery of Multimodal Modality Components in Multimodal Systems: Use Cases and Requirements. Users of mobile phones, personal computers, tablets or other electronic Devices are increasingly interacting with their devices in a variety of ways: touch screen, voice, stylus, keypads, etc. Today, users, vendors, operators and broadcasters can produce and use all kinds of different Media and Devices that are capable of supporting multiple modes of input or output. Tools for authoring, edition or distribution of Media for Application developers are well-documented. But there is a lack of powerful tools or practices for a richer integration and semantic synchronization of all these media. To the best of our knowledge, there is no standardized way to build a web Application that can dynamically combine and control discovered modalities by querying a registry based on user-experience data and modality states. This document describes design requirements that the Multimodal Architecture and Interfaces specification needs to cover in order to address this problem.

Towards a Semantic Decision Representation Format, hautomotyöryhmän raportti

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2012-04-17 , uutislähde )

The W3C Decisions and Decision-Making Incubator Group has published their final report. The mission of the Decisions and Decision-Making Incubator Group, part of the Incubator Activity, was to determine the requirements, use cases, and a representation of decisions and decision-making in a collaborative and networked environment suitable for leading to a potential standard for decision exchange, shared situational awareness, and measurement of the speed, effectiveness, and human factors of decision-making. The Incubator Group explored the question over the last year, including use cases, requirements and formats for representing decisions in a machine-understandable format. A standardized decision format would allow the decisions that occur everyday to be managed, archived, shared, and tracked. Two key benefits include the ability to expand and advance the meaningful use of web linked data, as well as the ability to tie-in domain knowledge to provide decision context. The final report captures the major accomplishments and results of the incubator group and ends with a recommendation to transition into a W3C Working Group for the establishment of a Decision Markup Language (DecisionML).

This publication is part of the Incubator Activity, a forum where W3C Members can innovate and experiment. This work is not on the W3C standards track.

RDFa Core 1.1, RDFa Lite 1.1 and XHTML+RDFa 1.1, implementointikutsuja

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2012-03-13 , uutislähde )

The RDF Web Applications Working Group has published three Candidate Recommendation documents for RDFa Core 1.1, RDFa Lite 1.1 and XHTML+RDFa 1.1.

Together, these documents outline the vision for RDFa in a variety of XML and HTML-based Web markup languages. RDFa Core 1.1 specifies the core syntax and processing rules for RDFa 1.1 and how the language is intended to be used in XML documents. RDFa Lite 1.1 provides a simple subset of RDFa for novice web authors. XHTML+RDFa 1.1 specifies the usage of RDFa in the XHTML markup language.

A number of improvements have been made to RDFa 1.1 over the past year by working closely with Google, Microsoft, Yahoo! and the other search engine developers. Public review and comments have resulted in a number of further refinements to the language that eases the learning curve for beginner Web authors.

The release of these Candidate Recommendation documents is a signal to developers that the Working Group believes that each specification is ready for implementation. The RDF Web Applications Working Group thus kindly asks for developers across the Web to implement the specification and provide implementation feedback via the RDF Web Applications Working Group mailing list.

You can learn more about similar projects to RDFa via the W3C's Semantic Web Activity homepage.

W3C Workshop: Using Open Data: policy modeling, citizen empowerment, data journalism

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2012-03-09 , Tapahtuma alkaa: 2012-06-19 , uutislähde )

W3C announces today a Workshop on Using Open Data: policy modeling, citizen empowerment, data journalism. For many years, W3C has been a keen promoter of Open Data, fostering a culture in which public administrations make their data available, ideally in machine-processable formats. Many governments have embraced the idea with enthusiasm, setting up national data portals. As part of the FP7-funded Crossover Project, W3C and the European Commission are running a Workshop to ask a simple question: what is all the 'new' government open data being used for? The Workshop takes place 19-20 June in Brussels, Belgium at the European Commission Headquarters. W3C Membership is not required to participate, but participation is limited to 80 people and participants must submit position papers. Workshop participants will focus on uses of open data, not its publication. In particular, the intention is that participants will highlight uses of data for tools that aid policy modeling, that empower citizens, and that can be usefully visualized for data journalism. For more information, see the Workshop home page.

W3C Multilingual Web

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2012-03-07 , uutislähde )

Today W3C announced new work to make it easier for people to create Web content in the world's languages. The lack of standards for exchanging information about translations is estimated to cost the industry as much as 20% more in translation costs, amounting to billions of dollars. In addition, barriers to distributing content in more than one language mean lost business. Multinational companies often need to translate Web content into dozens of languages simultaneously, and public bodies from Europe and India typically must communicate with citizens in many languages. As the Web becomes more diverse linguistically, translation demands will continue to grow.

The MultilingualWeb–LT (Language Technology) Working Group will develop standard ways to support the (automatic and manual) translation and adaptation of Web content to local needs, from its creation to its delivery to end users. Read the press release and learn more about the W3C Internationalization Activity. The MultilingualWeb-LT Working Group receives funding from the European Commission (project name LT-Web) through the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7).

The Multimodal Interaction Working Group has published a Working Draft of EMMA: Extensible MultiModal Annotation markup language Version 1.1. This document is part of a set of specifications for multimodal systems, and provides details of an XML markup language for containing and annotating the interpretation of user input. Examples of interpretation of user input are a transcription into words of a raw signal, for instance derived from speech, pen or keystroke input, a set of attribute/value pairs describing their meaning, or a set of attribute/value pairs describing a gesture. The interpretation of the user's input is expected to be generated by signal interpretation processes, such as speech and ink recognition, semantic interpreters, and other types of processors for use by components that act on the user's inputs such as interaction managers.

RDF Web Applications, kolme viimeistä kommentoitavaa luonnosta

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2012-01-31 , uutislähde )

The RDF Web Applications Working Group has published three Last Call Working Drafts today:

Together, these documents outline the vision for RDFa in a variety of XML and HTML-based Web markup languages. RDFa Core 1.1 specifies the core syntax and processing rules for RDFa 1.1 and how the language is intended to be used in XML documents. RDFa Lite 1.1 provides a simple subset of RDFa for novice Web authors. XHTML+RDFa 1.1 specifies the usage of RDFa in the XHTML markup language.

A number of improvements have been made to RDFa 1.1 over the past year by working closely with Google, Microsoft, Yahoo! and the other search engine developers. Public review and comments have resulted in a number of further refinements to the language that eases the learning curve for beginner Web authors.

The release of these documents as Last Call Working Drafts is a signal to the public that the Working Group believes that all of the technical requirements, public comments and reported issues have been addressed. It is also an open invitation to the general public to review and provide feedback on the finalization of this technology via the RDF Web Applications Working Group mailing list, by 21 February.

Data and Services Integration, workshop-raportti

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2012-01-26 , uutislähde )

W3C today published the report of the Workshop on Data and Services Integration, hosted on 20-21 October 2011 by MITRE in Bedford, Massachusetts, USA. This workshop provided a way for the community to meet and discuss some of the challenges of integration of heterogeneous data and services. With the emergence of the Web, the need for reusing data and services has become even stronger as the number of available services has grown. Different services stacks now exist from Web Services to Cloud-based services. One goal of this workshop was to figure out the needs in the domain of integration that would benefit from standardization, or where discussion via Community or Business Groups could gather a critical mass.

The participants came to the conclusion that solutions to the data integration issues can be the result of better integration of tools helping going cross-stacks. They also discussed how to architect RESTful services in the enterprise, with a plan to create a group to work on Linked Data Patterns, specifically REST-based patterns on RDF and other formats.

Kaksi XML Schema -suositusehdotusta

( Uutinen kirjattu: 2012-01-19 , uutislähde )

The XML Schema Working Group has published Proposed Recommendations of two specifications: W3C XML Schema Definition Language (XSD) 1.1 Part 1: Structures, W3C XML Schema Definition Language (XSD) 1.1 Part 2: Datatypes. The former specifies the XML Schema Definition Language, which offers facilities for describing the structure and constraining the contents of XML documents, including those which exploit the XML Namespace facility. The schema language, which is itself represented in an XML vocabulary and uses namespaces, substantially reconstructs and considerably extends the capabilities found in XML document type definitions (DTDs). This specification depends on XML Schema Definition Language 1.1 Part 2: Datatypes, which defines facilities for defining datatypes to be used in XML Schemas as well as other XML specifications. The datatype language, which is itself represented in XML, provides a superset of the capabilities found in XML document type definitions (DTDs) for specifying datatypes on elements and attributes.
