W3C Extends HTML Working Charter: HTML5 Last Call in May 2011 and
Recommendation in 2014

   14 February 2011 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2011#entry-9015

   [] W3C extends today the charter of the HTML Working Group,
   reaffirming the commitment for "HTML5" to reach Last Call in
   May 2011, and announcing plans to reach Recommendation by 2014.
   "Even as innovation continues, advancing HTML5 to
   Recommendation provides the entire Web ecosystem with a stable,
   tested, interoperable specification," said Jeff Jaffe, W3C CEO.
   W3C is developing a comprehensive test suite to help achieve
   broad interoperability for the full specification. Stable
   specifications are useful targets for interoperability at the
   same time that innovation never ceases. Therefore, to fulfill
   the W3C HTML Working Group's mission, W3C Director Tim
   Berners-Lee encourages the participants to begin discussion of
   requirements for future versions of HTML after HTML5 reaches
   Last Call. Read more in the press release and learn more about
   HTML.

   participation from key German and Austrian industries will not
   only impact positively their businesses and innovation
   strategies, but will also influence W3C's international
   landscape." Read more in the press release and learn about the

Three WebApps Updates: Web Workers, Web Storage, Server-Side Events

   08 February 2011 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2011#entry-9011

   The Web Applications Working Group updated three Working Drafts
   today: "Web Workers," "Web Storage," and "Server-side Events"
   . The first defines an API that allows Web application authors
   to spawn background workers running scripts in parallel to
   their main page. This allows for thread-like operation with
   message-passing as the coordination mechanism. The second
   defines an API for persistent data storage of key-value pair
   data in Web clients. The third defines an API for opening an
   HTTP connection for receiving push notifications from a server
   in the form of DOM events. The API is designed such that it can
   be extended to work with other push notification schemes such
   as Push SMS. Learn more about the Rich Web Client Activity.

   At the occasion of the Web and TV Workshop in Berlin, W3C

   the Web will function well with TV. See the group's charter for
   more information. Learn more about Web and TV at W3C.

       Hosted jointly by the Istituto di Informatica e Telematica
       and Istituto di Linguistica Computazionale, Consiglio
       Nazionale delle Ricerche.
       Today, the World Wide Web is fundamental to communication
       in all walks of life. As the share of English web pages
       decreases and that of other languages increases, it is
       vitally important to ensure the multilingual success of the
       World Wide Web. The MultilingualWeb project is looking at
       best practices and standards related to all aspects of
       creating, localizing and deploying the Web multilingually.
       The project aims to raise the visibility of existing best
       practices and standards and identify gaps. The core vehicle
       for this is a series of four events which are planned for
       the coming two years. Following the highly successful first
       event in Madrid, this second workshop will be held in Pisa,
       Italy.
     * 2011-06-04 ( 4 JUN) – 2011-06-05 ( 5 JUN)
