First Public Working Drafts: Micropub and ActivityPub

   28 January 2016

   The Social Web Working Group has published two First Public
   Working Drafts:


   "Micropub" : Micropub is an open API standard that is used to
   create posts on one’s own domain using third-party clients. Web
   apps and native apps (e.g. iPhone, Android) can use Micropub to
   post short notes, photos, events or other posts to your own site.


   "ActivityPub" : The ActivityPub protocol is a social networking
   protocol based upon the ActivityStreams 2.0 data format. It is
   based upon experience gained from implementing and working with
   the OStatus and Pump.io protocols.


First Public Working Draft: Efficient XML Interchange (EXI) for JSON

   28 January 2016

   The Efficient XML Interchange Working Group has published a
   Working Draft of "Efficient XML Interchange (EXI) for JSON." The
   Efficient XML Interchange (EXI) format is a compact representation
   that simultaneously optimizes performance and the utilization of
   computational resources. The EXI format was designed to support
   XML representation. With a relatively small set of transformations
   it may also be used for JSON, a popular format for exchange of
   structured data on the Web.


Data on the Web Best Practices: Dataset Usage Vocabulary Draft Published

   28 January 2016

   The Data on the Web Best Practices Working Group has published the
   near final version of its "Dataset Usage Vocabulary." It is
   designed to answer the natural desire of publishers to be able to
   see how the data that they have gone to the effort of sharing is
   being used. Dataset users can encourage continued publication by
   providing that information.


   By specifying a number of foundational concepts used to collect
   dataset consumer feedback, experiences, and citation references
   associated with a dataset, the Dataset Usage Vocabulary allows
   APIs to be written to support collaboration across the Web by
   structurally publishing consumer opinions and experiences, and
   provide a means for data consumers and producers to advertise and
   search for published open dataset usage.

W3C Invites Implementations of TTML Profiles for Internet Media
Subtitles and Captions 1.0 (IMSC1)

   28 January 2016

   The Timed Text Working Group invites implementation of the
   Candidate Recommendation of "TTML Profiles for Internet Media
   Subtitles and Captions 1.0 (IMSC1)." This document specifies two
   profiles of TTML1: a text-only profile and an image-only profile.
   These profiles are intended to be used across subtitle and caption
   delivery applications worldwide, thereby simplifying
   interoperability, consistent rendering and conversion to other
   subtitling and captioning formats.


First Public Working Draft: Content Security Policy Level 3

   26 January 2016

   The Web Application Security Working Group has published a Working
   Draft of "Content Security Policy Level 3." This document defines
   a mechanism by which web developers can control the resources
   which a particular page can fetch or execute, as well as a number
   of security-relevant policy decisions.
