Hello folks,

The semi-regular string of updates around the Web Components effort persists!

SHADOW DOM (https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/showdependencytree.cgi?id=14978&hide_resolved=1):

The big news, of course, is the a fresh new Working Draft of the
Shadow DOM spec:

http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-shadow-dom-20121016/

Lots of new interesting updates:
* Correctness tweaks in event retargeting algorithms (Hayato Ito
deserves most of the credit here)
* Few more restrictions on events that are always stopped at the
boundary (hat tip: Tony Ross)
* Updated event retargeting example that matches the latest changes to spec
* New! :host pseudoclass yields way to the new @host at-rule
* New! Shadow subtree stylesheets and shared stylesheets
(https://plus.google.com/103330502635338602217/posts/YGga8x4JcyT)
* New! reset-style-inheritance flag for insertion points
(https://plus.google.com/103330502635338602217/posts/dEKnARZ8r9h)
* Lots of terminology and clarity tweaks

Embarrassingly, there are also a few typos that will be fixed in the
next draft. Please ignore them while they sear shame into my hide :)

CUSTOM ELEMENTS
(https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/showdependencytree.cgi?id=14968&hide_resolved=1):

Custom DOM elements spec is being implemented in Mozilla:
