IndieUI: Events (for Mobile and More) Updated Working Draft Published

   29 May 2014 | Archive


   The IndieUI Working Group today published an updated Working
   Draft of "IndieUI: Events 1.0" – Events for User Interface
   Independence. This draft includes new events and a refined
   technical model. IndieUI defines a way for different user
   interactions to be translated into simple events and
   communicated to Web applications. (For example, if a user wants
   to scroll down a page, they might use their finger on a touch
   screen, or click a scroll bar with a mouse, or use a scroll
   wheel, or say ‘scroll down’ with a voice command. With IndieUI,
   these are all sent to the Web app as simply: scroll down.)
   IndieUI will make it easier for Web applications to work in a
   wide range of contexts — different devices (such as mobile
   phones and tablets), different assistive technologies (AT),
   different user needs. With IndieUI, Web application developers
   will have a uniform way to design applications that work for
   multiple devices and contexts. Comments on this Draft are
   encouraged by 27 June 2014. Learn more from the IndieUI
   Overview and the Updated Working Draft: IndieUI Events e-mail;
   and read about the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).


Last Call: State Chart XML (SCXML): State Machine Notation for
Control Abstraction

   29 May 2014 | Archive


   The Voice Browser Working Group has published a Last Call
   Working Draft of "State Chart XML (SCXML): State Machine
   Notation for Control Abstraction." This document describes
   SCXML, or the “State Chart extensible Markup Language”. SCXML
   provides a generic state-machine based execution environment
   based on CCXML and Harel State Tables. Comments are welcome
   through 26 June. Learn more about the Voice Browser Activity.


Last Call: The app: URL Scheme

   29 May 2014 | Archive


   The System Applications Working Group has published a Last Call
   Working Draft of "The app: URL Scheme." This specification
   defines the app: URL scheme. The app: URL scheme can be used by
   packaged applications to obtain resources that are inside a
   container. These resources can then be used with web platform
   features that accept URLs. Comments are welcome through 24
   June. Learn more about the Ubiquitous Web Applications


First Public Working Drafts: W3C HTML Form HTTP Extensions, W3C HTML
JSON Form Submission

   29 May 2014 | Archive


   The HTML Working Group has published two First Public Working
   Drafts today.

     * W3C HTML Form HTTP Extensions. This is an addendum to the
       specification of HTML5 forms extending the abilities of
       configuring HTTP requests through HTML markup.
     * W3C HTML JSON form submission. This specification defines a
       new form encoding algorithm that enables the transmission
       of form data as JSON. Instead of capturing form data as
       essentially an array of key-value pairs which is the bread
       and butter of existing form encodings, it relies on a
       simple name attribute syntax that makes it possible to
       capture rich data structures as JSON directly.

   Learn more about the HTML Activity.

     * 2014-06-25 (25 JUN) – 2014-06-26 (26 JUN)
       Workshop on the Web of Things
       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.
     * 2014-09-10 (10 SEP) – 2014-09-11 (11 SEP)
