W3C Publishes First Working Draft of Turtle

In case you missed it, “The RDF Working Group has published the First Public Working Draft of Turtle (“Terse RDF Triple Language”). Turtle has been in use by the Semantic Web community for a long time; this document is the first formal step to, eventually, turn it into an official W3C Recommendation.”

The Turtle home page elaborates, “Turtle is already a reasonably settled serialization of RDF. Many implementations of Turtle already exist, we are hoping for feedback from those existing implementers and other people deciding that now would be a good time to support Turtle. There are still a few rough edges that need polishing, and better alignment with the SPARQL triple patterns. The working group does not expect to make any large changes to the existing syntax.”

It continues, “This document was published by the RDF Working Group as a First Public Working Draft. This document is intended to become a W3C Recommendation. If you wish to make comments regarding this document, please send them to public-rdf-comments [at] w3 [dot] org. All feedback is welcome.”
