Updated Working Drafts of The Screen Orientation API, XMLHttpRequest,
DOM4

   06 December 2012 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2012#entry-9646

   The Web Applications Working Group published three Working
   Drafts today:

   http://www.w3.org/2008/webapps/
     * The Screen Orientation API. The Screen Orientation API's
       goal is to provide an interface for web applications to be
       able to read the screen orientation state, to be informed
       when this state changes and to be able to lock the screen
       orientation to a specific state.
     * XMLHttpRequest. The XMLHttpRequest specification defines an
       API that provides scripted client functionality for
       transferring data between a client and a server.
     * DOM4, published in co-operation with the Web Hypertext
       Application Technology Working Group. DOM defines the event
       and document model the Web platform uses. The DOM is a
       language- and platform neutral interface that allows
       programs and scripts to dynamically access and update the
       content and structure of documents.

       Today’s eBook market is dynamic, fast-changing and strong.
       eBooks compete with printed versions, and there is a wide
       choice of hardware and software available for eBook
       readers. Nevertheless, publishers face major business and
       technical challenges in this market, some of which could be
       reduced or removed by standardization.
