New W3C drafts - DOM Level 2, P3P, XML-Signature
13:49, 12 May 2000 UTC | Simon St.Laurent

The W3C released an updated Candidate Recommendation for DOM Level 2, along with new working drafts of The Platform for Privacy Preferences 1.0 (P3P1.0) Specification, and XML-Signature Syntax and Processing.

The DOM Level 2 Candidate Recommendation appears to be in limbo, without a date set for the close of the CR period:

"A coordination issue has arisen, which necessitates an extended Candidate Recommendation phase. It will end when the coordination issue is resolved. "

The new P3P draft follows a Last Call working draft, and "addresses the comments received during the Last Call period... A revised version of this specification is expected to advance toward W3C Recommendation status after two interoperable implementations have been demonstrated."

The new XML-Signatures draft, a joint project of the W3C and IETF is not itself a last call draft, but "This version should be the last before the document is proposed as a Proposed Draft and Candidate Recommendation." Like the DOM Level 2, no date suggesting the end of this process is given. Schema namespaces and XPath are noted as open issues.
