Dear Notifications WG,

I have posted a new draft of Web Notifications at

This includes many changes which have been discussed in this group, and
which seem to have reached the point of consensus:

   - Notification constructor now implies that the notification should be
   immediately shown.  The show() method is completely removed.
   - All parameters besides the main title text of the notification are
   passed as a options parameter to the constructor.
   - ReplaceID remains functionally the same, but is now called "tag"; it
   is a normal attribute rather than a settable but not readable property.
   - The motivating cases for replaceId / tag have been elaborated with
   - The cancel() method has been renamed to close().
   - I've attempted to clarify the algorithms specified for the user agent.

Please continue to send all feedback.

These issues remain outstanding and not changed in the spec:

   - Concerns about specifying directionality.  I do not have expertise in
   this area, but will incorporate whatever language the group agrees on.
   - The permissioning model -- the discussion has slowed down, without
   reaching consensus.
