W3C Introduces an HTML5 Logo

Quote:
18 January 2011

W3C unveiled today an HTML5 logo, a striking visual identity for the open web platform. W3C encourages early adopters to use HTML5 and to provide feedback to the W3C HTML Working Group as part of the standardization process. Now there are logos for those who have taken up parts of HTML5 into their sites, and for anyone who wishes to tell the world they are using or referring to HTML5, CSS, SVG, WOFF, and other technologies used to build modern Web applications. The logo home page includes a badge builder (which generates code for displaying the logo), a gallery of sites using the logo, links for buying an HTML5 T-shirt, instructions for getting free stickers, and more. The logo is available under "Creative Commons 3.0 By" so it can be adapted by designers to meet their needs. See also the HTML5 logo FAQ and learn more about HTML5.

W3C Extends HTML Working Charter: HTML5 Last Call in May 2011

Quote:
W3C Extends HTML Working Charter: HTML5 Last Call in May 2011 and Recommendation in 2014

14 February 2011 | Archive

W3C extends today the charter of the HTML Working Group, reaffirming the commitment for "HTML5" to reach Last Call in May 2011, and announcing plans to reach Recommendation by 2014.

"Even as innovation continues, advancing HTML5 to Recommendation provides the entire Web ecosystem with a stable, tested, interoperable specification," said Jeff Jaffe, W3C CEO. W3C is developing a comprehensive test suite to help achieve broad interoperability for the full specification. Stable specifications are useful targets for interoperability at the same time that innovation never ceases. Therefore, to fulfill the W3C HTML Working Group's mission, W3C Director Tim Berners-Lee encourages the participants to begin discussion of requirements for future versions of HTML after HTML5 reaches Last Call. Read more in the press release and learn more about HTML.

Last Call: HTML5 Web Messaging

Quote:
17 March 2011 | Archive
The Web Applications Working Group has published a Last Call Working Draft of "HTML5 Web Messaging." Web browsers, for security and privacy reasons, prevent documents in different domains from affecting each other; that is, cross-site scripting is disallowed. While this is an important security feature, it prevents pages from different domains from communicating even when those pages are not hostile. This specification defines two mechanisms for communicating between browsing contexts in HTML documents. Comments are welcome through 01 June. Learn more about the Rich Web Client Activity.

25 May 2011 | Archive

http://www.w3.org/News/2011#entry-9105

[] W3C today called for broad review of HTML5 and five related
specifications published by the W3C HTML Working Group. HTML5
offers powerful tools for creating Web-based applications that
will run on any device. By issuing a Last Call announcement,
the HTML Working Group encourages people to comment on the
extent to which they believe that technical requirements have
been met and significant dependencies with groups inside and
outside W3C have been satisfied. Comments are welcome through 3
August. Each document includes instructions for providing
feedback in the status section of the document:

http://www.w3.org/html/logo/
http://www.w3.org/html/wg/
* HTML5
* HTML+RDFa 1.1
* HTML Microdata
* HTML Canvas 2D Context
* Polyglot Markup: HTML-Compatible XHTML Documents
* HTML5: Techniques for providing useful text alternatives

The HTML Working Group published three other drafts today as
well: "HTML: The Markup Language Reference," "HTML5 diffs from
HTML4," and "HTML to Platform Accessibility APIs
Implementation Guide."

Ten HTML5 Drafts Updated

Quote:
The HTML Working Group has published ten updated working drafts:

•the HTML5 specification
•HTML5: Edition for Web Authors
•HTML5 differences from HTML4
•HTML+RDFa 1.1
•HTML Microdata
•HTML Canvas 2D Context
•HTML5: Techniques for providing useful text alternatives
•Polyglot Markup: HTML-Compatible XHTML Documents
•HTML to Platform Accessibility APIs Implementation Guide
•HTML: The Markup Language
There is a comprehensive list of the changes made to the HTML5 spec since publication of the previous HTML Working Draft (May 2011). Most of the changes are fine-tuning refinements rather than major new additions, in keeping with the progress of the specification toward greater stability, and transitioning toward an upcoming Candidate Recommendation draft.

Getting HTML5 to Recommendation in 2014

Quote:
Introduction

The HTML Working Group has made much progress on HTML5 and related specifications. The HTML Working Group Chairs and the Protocols and Formats WG Chair have been asked by the W3C Team to provide a credible plan to get HTML5 to Recommendation status by 2014. Challenges remain in achieving this goal. We sought to produce a plan that achieves this date and that has minimal risk of delays from unexpected events.

We'd like to now propose our draft plan to the HTML Working Group for consideration. Here are the key points of our plan:

•Revise the draft HTML WG charter to indicate an HTML 5.0 Recommendation in 2014Q4 and an HTML 5.1 Recommendation in 2016Q4.

• Use Candidate Recommendation exit criteria to focus testing where it is advisable (e.g. new features), without wasting time on testing where it is inappropriate (such as when interoperability is already proven on the Web)

• Use modularity to manage the size and complexity of the specifications while reducing social conflict within a constrained timeline:

◦ Gain agreement that the remaining open issues can proceed via extension specifications at first. Provide an opportunity to merge extension specifications back into the baseline spec upon getting WG consensus and after the extension specifications meet their Candidate Recommendation exit criteria.

◦Welcome the option of extension specifications that don't merge back at all and instead proceed at different paces and possibly even with different Candidate Recommendation exit criteria.
We invite the HTML WG, the Accessibility Task Force and the PF WG to review this plan with an open mind and provide feedback.

HTML5 Definition Complete, W3C Moves to Interoperability Testing and

Quote:
W3C published today the complete definition of the HTML5 and Canvas 2D specifications. Though not yet W3C standards, these specifications are now feature complete, meaning businesses and developers have a stable target for implementation and planning. "As of today, businesses know what they can rely on for HTML5 in the coming years, and what their customers will demand," said Jeff Jaffe, W3C CEO. HTML5 is the cornerstone of the Open Web Platform, a full programming environment for cross-platform applications with access to device capabilities; video and animations; graphics; style, typography, and other tools for digital publishing; extensive network capabilities; and more. Read the full press release and W3C Member testimonials.

To reduce browser fragmentation and extend implementations to the full range of tools that consume and produce HTML, W3C now embarks on the stage of W3C standardization devoted to interoperability and testing. W3C is on schedule to finalize the HTML5 standard in 2014. In parallel, the W3C community will continue its work on next generation HTML features, including extensions to complement built-in HTML5 accessibility, responsive images, and adaptive streaming.

The HTML Working Group also published first drafts of HTML 5.1, HTML Canvas 2D Context, Level 2, and main element, providing an early view of the next round of standardization. Learn more About HTML.

HTML Working Group Updated HTML 5.1, Differences from HTML4, Canvas 2D Context Level

Quote:
The HTML Working Group has updated three Working Drafts and published three Group Notes:
•a Working Draft of HTML 5.1. This specification defines the 5th major version, first minor revision of the core language of the World Wide Web: the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). In this version, new features continue to be introduced to help Web application authors, new elements continue to be introduced based on research into prevailing authoring practices, and special attention continues to be given to defining clear conformance criteria for user agents in an effort to improve interoperability.
•a Working Draft of Differences from HTML4. HTML is the core language of the World Wide Web. The W3C publishes HTML5 and HTML5.1. The WHATWG publishes HTML, which is a rough superset of W3C HTML5.1. "Differences from HTML4" describes the differences of the HTML specifications from those of HTML4, and calls out cases where they differ from each other.
•a Working Draft of HTML Canvas 2D Context, Level 2. This specification defines the 2D Context for the HTML canvas element. The 2D Context provides objects, methods, and properties to draw and manipulate graphics on a canvas drawing surface.
•a Group Note of HTML5: Edition for Web Authors. This document, now discontinued and made available for historical purposes, is targeted toward Web authors and others who are not UA implementors and who want a view of the HTML specification that focuses more precisely on details relevant to using the HTML language to create Web documents and Web applications.
•a Group Note of main element - an HTML5 extension specification. This specification, now integrated into the HTML specification and no longer developed separately, defines an element to be used for the identification of the main content area of a document. It also defines an HTML element that embodies the semantics and function of the WAI-ARIA landmark role=main.
•a Group Note of HTML: The Markup Language (an HTML language reference). This document describes the HTML markup language and provides details to help producers of HTML content create documents that conform to the language. This document has been discontinued and is only made available for historical purposes. For an up to date reference on HTML elements (and more) please consult Web Platform Docs.

CfC: remove Microdata from HTML 5.0

Quote:
No one objected to the CfC to remove Microdata from HTML 5.0, remove JS API, and to continue HTML Microdata as a separate spec by the Wed Jul 17 deadline.

http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/...3Jul/0019.html

Therefore, the HTML Working Group hereby resolves to handle the Microdata discussion as specified in the above referenced CfC.

The Editors are requested to carry out the directions of the CfC:

a) to remove all references to Microdata from the HTML 5.0 CR draft,

b) to remove the Javascript API from the Microdata spec, and

c) to publish the separate "HTML Microdata" document as an extension spec (iff editorial resources can be found).

HTML5 and Canvas 2D Candidate Recommendations Updated by the HTML Working Group

Quote:
The HTML Working Group updated two Candidate Recommendations today:
•HTML5, which defines the 5th major revision of the core language of the World Wide Web, the Hypertext Markup Language (HTML). In this version, new features are introduced to help Web application authors, new elements are introduced based on research into prevailing authoring practices, and special attention has been given to defining clear conformance criteria for user agents in an effort to improve interoperability.

•HTML Canvas 2D Context, which defines the 2D Context for the HTML canvas element. The 2D Context provides objects, methods, and properties to draw and manipulate graphics on a canvas drawing surface.
