Three CSS Drafts Published

   20 June 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9868

   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group has published a
   Last Call Working Draft of "CSS Custom Properties for Cascading
   Variables Module Level 1." This module introduces cascading
   variables as a new primitive value type that is accepted by all
   CSS properties, and custom properties for defining them.
   Comments are welcome through 18 July.

   http://www.w3.org/TR/2013/WD-css-variables-1-20130620/

   The group also published a First Public Working Draft of "CSS
   Shapes Module Level 1." CSS Shapes control the geometric
   shapes used for wrapping inline flow content outside an
   element. For Level 1, CSS Shapes can be applied to floats. A
   circle shape on a float will cause inline content to wrap
   around the circle shape instead of the float's bounding box.

   http://www.w3.org/TR/2013/WD-css-shapes-1-20130620/

   In addition, the group updated "CSS Masking Level 1." CSS
   Masking provides two means for partially or fully hiding
   portions of visual elements: masking and clipping.

   The System Applications Working Group has published a Working
   Draft of "Web Telephony API." This specification defines an
   API to manage telephone calls. A typical use case of the Web
   Telephony API is the implementation of a 'Dialer' application
   supporting multiparty calls and multiple telephony services.

Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) 2 Draft Published

   18 June 2013 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/News/2013#entry-9866

   The SVG Working Group has published a Working Draft of
   "Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) 2." This specification defines
   the features and syntax for Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG)
   Version 2, a language for describing two-dimensional vector and
   mixed vector/raster graphics. Changes in this working draft
   include introduction of a new "‘hatch’" element as a refinement
   on patterns, improved accessibility and integration with HTML
   through the addition of the "‘tabindex’" attribute and changes
   to the "‘foreignObject’" element, addition of a new
   'auto-start-reverse' attribute value for markers, clarification
   of CSS transforms on SVG content, and various updates to bring
   SVG closer in line with CSS best practices. See the "full list
   of modifications" in the SVG changes appendix. Learn more about
   the Graphics Activity.

       Get Smart: Smart Homes, Cars, Devices and the Web -
       Workshop on Rich Multimodal Application Development
       http://www.w3.org/2013/07/mmi/
       New York Metropolitan Area, US
       Hosted by Openstream
       HTML5 has paved the way for development of rich web
       applications and has been widely adopted by application
       developers. Ease of user-interaction (user experience) with
       applications has become a prime focus world-wide, thanks to
       the proliferation of new devices and platforms including
       mobile phones, tablet devices, eBook readers, and gaming
       platforms. In addition, traditional platforms such as TV's,
       sudio systems, and automobiles are rapidly becoming capable
       of much more intelligent interaction than in the past.
       User-interaction through speech, touch, gesture and swipe
       has become the key differentiator in the success of popular
       applications today. One of the key advantages of the W3C
       Multimodal Architecture (MMI) is its suitability for simple
       to sophisticated applications across devices in creating
       compelling user experiences, leveraging advances in i/o
       methodologies, and supporting inter-operability among
       multiple vendors' products.
