> Happy New Year to everyone on this WG.

> I have revised the DataCache [1] draft based on feedback received so
> far. I have a couple of emails to respond to, which I will do shortly.
> At this time, this draft is ready for a new WD publication.
>
> The following are the major changes in this draft:
>
> 1. The spec extends the HTML5 ApplicationCache interface and add some
> behaviors to it related to programmability of caching.
> 2. There is no more a secure data cache concept that would be guarded
> by cookies.
> 3. This spec is heavily tied to the HTML5 Application Cache and refers
> to a lot of terms, algorithms, interfaces, and events defined there.
> It also modifies the networking model defined there.
> 5. The asynchronous interfaces are styled similar to Indexed Database.
> 6. I have removed the synchronous interface until we agree on the rest
> of the spec.
> 7. Security considerations are modified.
> 8. Mechanisms to inspect the metadata of application caches is  
> provided.
> 9. A new mechanism to annotate an application cache with outbox type
> of metadata is provided so that user agents can provide a control
> panel to users for acting on outbox when network connectivity is
> reestablished.
> 10. New events on the cache are removed or moved to events on cache
> transactions.
> 11. The File API Blob interface is now used in the spec.
