WOFF File Format 2.0 First Public Working Draft Published

   8 May 2014 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/3834

   The WebFonts Working Group has published a First Public Working
   Draft of "WOFF File Format 2.0." Based on experience with WOFF
   1.0, which is widely deployed, this specification provides
   improved compression and thus lower use of network bandwidth,
   while still allowing fast decompression even on mobile devices.
   This is achieved by combining a content-aware preprocessing
   step and improved entropy coding, compared to the Flate
   compression used in WOFF 1.0. Learn more about the Fonts
   Activity.

Service Workers First Public Working Draft Published

   8 May 2014 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/3833

   The Web Applications Working Group has published a First Public
   Working Draft of "Service Workers." This specification
   describes a method that enables applications to take advantage
   of persistent background processing, including hooks to enable
   bootstrapping of web applications while offline. The core of
   this system is an event-driven Web Worker, which responds to
   events dispatched from documents and other sources. A system
   for managing installation, versions, and upgrades is provided.
   The Service Worker is a generic entry point for event-driven
   background processing in the Web Platform that is extensible by
   other specifications. Learn more about the Rich Web Client
   Activity.

Workshops

     * 2014-06-25 (25 JUN) – 2014-06-26 (26 JUN)
       Workshop on the Web of Things
       http://www.w3.org/2014/02/wot/
       Berlin, Germany
       Hosted by Siemens
       Participants in this workshop will examine the potential
       for open standards as a basis for services, either between
       devices, at the network edge, e.g. in home hubs, or in the
       cloud. They will discuss the use of web protocols and
       scripting languages for implementing services, the need for
       APIs for implementing drivers for specific IoT
       technologies, a shared approach to describing services as a
       basis for interoperability, and the underlying use of
       HTTP/COAP, Web Sockets, and EXI/JSON for RESTful services.
