SWORD 1.3 draft

August 26, 2008

I finally finished a first draft of the next round of revisions to the SWORD spec. Discussion will take place on the SWORD-APP sourceforge mailing list.

The profile has changed a little, a few changes to make it more AtomPub compatible, and a couple of new elements, including a proposed mechanism for nesting SWORD services. SWORD 1.3 servers will be back compatible as SWORD 1.2 level 1 servers, and SWORD 1.2 level 1 servers are forward compatible. The spec itself is substantially restructured in order to make it clearer what SWORD does, and how you might use it.
