The W3C reports that “The RDF Working Group has published the First Public Working Draft of RDF 1.1 Concepts and Abstract Syntax. The Resource Description Framework (RDF) is a framework for representing information in the Web. This document defines an abstract syntax (a data model) on which RDF is based, and which serves to link concrete syntaxes to its formal semantics. It also includes discussion of key concepts, datatyping, character normalization and handling of IRIs.”

The homepage for the project states, “This document is work in progress towards a revision of the RDF Concepts and Abstract Syntax Recommendation, and is intended to eventually replace that document. It is part of a larger effort to revise the RDF specifications as published in 2004. The most significant changes from the 2004 edition are: modified string literals, a section on skolemization of blank nodes, and many updated references to other specifications (including a change in terminology from “URI references” to “IRIs”). A fuller list of changes that have been made to date is provided in Appendix A. Various areas of work to be tackled in upcoming working drafts are highlighted throughout the document, but should not yet be understood as an exhaustive list.”
