Dear Chet, Paul, and especially all OSLC members,
I thank you again for your work and advice that helps advance OSLC standards! I am thrilled to see more OSLC specs published as OASIS Standards.

Subject: [oslc-op] OSLC Core v3.0 and OSLC Query v3.0 OASIS Standards from the OSLC Open Project are published
Two newly-approved members of the suite of standards from the Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) Open Project are now available.
OASIS Members and other interested parties,
OASIS is pleased to announce the publication of its two newest OASIS Standards, approved by the members on 26 August 2021:
OSLC Core Version 3.0
26 August 2021
OSLC Query Version 3.0
26 August 2021
The Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration (OSLC) Open Project applies Linked Data principles, such as those defined in the W3C Linked Data Platform (LDP), to create a cohesive set of specifications that can enable products, services, and other distributed
network resources to interoperate successfully.
Managing change and configuration in a complex systems development lifecycle is very difficult, especially in heterogeneous environments that include homegrown tools, open source projects, and commercial tools from different vendors.
OSLC Core v3.0 defines the overall approach to OSLC-based specifications and capabilities that extend and complement the W3C Linked Data Platform. This eight-part specification also includes two files of machine-readable definitions of the OSLC Core Vocabulary
and the OSLC Core Resource Shape Constraints.
OSLC Query v3.0 provides a mechanism for a client to search for RDF resources that match given criteria. The response to a successful query includes the RDF of a query result container that references the member resources found by the query, and optionally
includes selected properties of each member resource.
The specifications and related files are available at:
- OSLC Core Version 3.0. Part 1: Overview
- OSLC Core Version 3.0. Part 2: Discovery
- OSLC Core Version 3.0. Part 3: Resource Preview
- OSLC Core Version 3.0. Part 4: Delegated Dialogs
- OSLC Core Version 3.0. Part 5: Attachments
- OSLC Core Version 3.0. Part 6: Resource Shape
- OSLC Core Version 3.0. Part 7: Vocabulary
- OSLC Core Version 3.0. Part 8: Constraints

Distribution ZIP files
For your convenience, OASIS provides a complete package of each specification and related files in a ZIP distribution file.

Our congratulations to the participants and contributors in the Open Services for Lifecycle Collaboration Open Project on their achieving this milestone.
