Version 1.13 of the Semantics WG's Vocabularies document is now
available as a Proposed Recommendation. It's available at <http://www.ivoa.net/Documents/latest/Vocabularies.html
> and <http://www.ivoa.net/Documents/PR/Semantics/Vocabularies-20080729.html
The document has been improved in various ways, but has not had major
structural or technical changes from the versions previously available
as a WD.
There is, it turns out, a last-minute complication concerning the
namespace of the sample vocabularies included with this document.
Current best practice suggests that such a namespace URL should be
unversioned, and this was confirmed at one of the Semantics WG
sessions at the Trieste interop. This may or may not conflict with
the current policies for the management of the www.ivoa.net URL space,
and until this is definitively worked out, the document and its
associated vocabularies have been released with a versioned namespace
URL (see section 2.4, and the beginning of section 4, for some
discussion of this).
