Dear Colleagues,    (01)

Rule markup languages will be the vehicle for using rules on the Web
and in other distributed systems. They allow deploying, executing,
publishing and communicating rules in a network. They may also play
the role of a lingua franca for exchanging rules between different
systems and tools. The main purposes of a rule markup language are to
permit reuse, interchange and publication of rules used e.g., in a
Corporate Semantic Web to represent business rules, semantic business
process flows, regulations, and policies.    (02)

2008 sees a major step forward for rules on the Web. The W3C Rule
Interchange Format (RIF) Working Group [1] has published several
public specifications for a new standardized Rule Interchange Format
(W3C RIF) which is part of the latest Semantic Web stack [2].    (03)

The Rule Interchange Format (RIF) Working Group has just published
five new Working Drafts.  Since the Last Call Working Drafts of RIF
Basic Logic Dialect (BLD) [3] and RIF RDF and OWL Compatibility [4] in
July, the group has been developing other dialects, components, and
test cases.    (04)

The new publications are:    (05)
