The W3C Device Description Working Group is pleased to announce the
First Public, and Last Comment, Working Draft of a proposed W3C
Recommendation entitled:

Device Description Repository Simple API

Located here: http://www.w3.org/TR/2008/WD-DDR-Simple-API-20080404/

>From the Abstract:

"Web content delivered to mobile devices usually benefits from being
tailored to take into account a range of factors such as screen size,
markup language support and image format support. Such information is
stored in "Device Description Repositories" (DDRs).

This document describes a simple API for access to DDRs, in order to
ease and promote the development of Web content that adapts to its
Delivery Context."

This document is a First Public Working Draft and a Last Call Working
Draft that is intended to progress along the Recommendation Track. The
Working Group has published this First Public Working Draft as a Last
Call due to previous drafts being publicly available, and a number of
implementations that are known to already exist.

The early public drafts can be viewed here:
http://www.w3.org/2005/MWI/DDWG/drafts/api/Overview.html

Comments are invited, until 1 May, from any groups or individuals,
public or W3C members, to the following email address:
public-ddwg-comments@w3.org

Corrections or suggestions for improvement are especially welcome.

Please note this API is described as "Simple" in anticipation of a
future more advanced API whose scope will have a much wider scope. We
anticipate this future work will be conducted within the Ubiquitous Web
Applications Working Group. Comments on this publication may be
considered during the development of the more advanced API by the UWAWG.

On behalf of the W3C DDWG,
Rotan Hanrahan
Chair
