The last XMLHttpRequest Working Draft was a Last Call Working Draft. As it turned out a number of changes had to be made again. Meanwhile HTML5 also got further along and integration with the event loop as well as the storage mutex was desired. These are now integrated.

The Forms WG asked for a way to set the base URL independently of the Window object. This is now possible as a side effect of making XMLHttpRequest ready for Web Workers. Doug Schepers asked for separate headings for each interface member. This is now done as a side effect of making the two XMLHttpRequest drafts more alike.

Given the number of changes it seems best to simply publish another Working Draft for now of both XMLHttpRequest and XMLHttpRequest Level 2 and see where that brings us. It would help if we have more implementations trying to seriously implement it so we could declare the draft more stable, but it seems we are not quite there yet.

I'd like to request that we publish these two drafts:


If the chairs could wave their magic wand that'd be appreciated.
