Recently in microformats (July edition)

‘This Week in Microformats’ is a summary of notable microformats activity from the mailing lists, wiki, events and the wider web.

On the wiki

  • Din Neville has been working hard this week, updating the Russian translation of the wiki. Thank you, Din.
  • datetime-design-pattern contains documentation and discussion of alternative patterns to represent dates and times.
  • The parsers page has fallen a little out of date. If you’d like to help update it with links to current available parsers, please help!
  • There’s a new html5 page to track changes in HTML5 which will affect microformats (both positive and negative). Not that these issues don’t affect parsing now, and won’t do until HTML5 is stable.

On the mailing lists

Discuss and Dev have been very busy with discussion around the abbr datetime pattern, there’s a lot of it and the threads cross over quite a lot. The core of these discussions should be documented on the wiki on the aforementioned page over the course of this week. The main threads are in the archive page for µf-dev and the archive page for µf-discuss
