The second Working Draft of the Web MIDI API is now available:
http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-**webmidi-20121213/<http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-webmidi-20121213/>
.

The major differences between this draft and the initial one:

   - The MIDIMessage interface was rolled into the MIDIEvent interface,
   making each MIDIEvent a single MIDI message.
   - The multiple versions of "send" were rolled into one send() method on
   MIDIOutput, which takes a sequence of data and an optional timestamp, for
   both short and long (sysex) messages.
   - The connect/disconnect events were removed.
   - Some explanatory code examples were added.
   - A number of editorial improvements.

At this point, we have resolved all open bugs on the MIDI API in Bugzilla.

tweak" was the last commit to the previous draft).

I'd like to ask the WG to review this WD carefully, and file issues as
found, so that we may proceed to LC.
