   <h2>Changes from RDF 2004</h2>
 
   <ul>
+    <li>2011-07-21: Condensed the 2004 acknowledgements</li>
     <li>2011-07-21: Updated the two sections on literals to reflect the <a href="">ISSUE-12 resolution</a> that simple literals are no longer part of the abstract syntax. Formally introduced the terms “language-tagged literal”, “simple literal”.</li>
     <li>2011-07-21: Updated the introduction, and removed many mentions of RDF/XML. Changed the normative reference for the terms in the RDF namespace from the RDF/XML spec to the RDF Schema spec. Removed any mention of the 1999 version of RDF.</li>
     <li>2011-07-21: Replaced RFC 2279 reference (UTF-8) with RFC 3629</li>
