CSS Pseudo-Elements Module Level 4; CSS Exclusions Module Level 1
Drafts Published

   15 January 2015 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/4318

   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group has published
   two documents today:

   http://www.w3.org/Style/CSS/members
     * A First Public Working Draft of CSS Pseudo-Elements Module
       Level 4. This CSS module defines pseudo-elements, abstract
       elements that represent portions of the CSS render tree
       that can be selected and styled.
     * A Working Draft of CSS Exclusions Module Level 1. CSS
       Exclusions define arbitrary areas around which inline
       content can flow. CSS Exclusions can be defined on any CSS
       block-level elements. CSS Exclusions extend the notion of
       content wrapping previously limited to floats.

   CSS is a language for describing the rendering of structured
   documents (such as HTML and XML) on screen, on paper, in
   speech, etc. Learn more about the Style Activity.

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

   15 January 2015 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/4314

   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: Events 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 13 February 2015. Learn more from the IndieUI
   Overview and the Updated Working Draft: IndieUI Events e-mail;
   and read about the Web Accessibility Initiative (WAI).

First Public Working Draft: Packaging on the Web

   15 January 2015 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/4312

   The Web Applications Working Group and the Technical
   Architecture Group have published a First Public Working Draft
   of "Packaging on the Web." This document describes an approach
   for creating packages of files for use on the web. The approach
   is to package them using a new application/package media type.
   To access packages related to other files on the web, clients
   that understand packages of files look for a Link header or (in
   HTML documents) a <link> element with a new link relation of
   package. Other formats may define format-specific mechanisms
   for locating related packages. Learn more about the Rich Web
   Client Activity and the Technical Architecture Group.

Cognitive Accessibility User Research published

   15 January 2015 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/4310

   A First Public Working Draft of "Cognitive Accessibility User
   Research" was published today by the Cognitive and Learning
   Disabilities Accessibility Task Force, a joint task force of
   the Protocols and Formats Working Group and the Web Content
   Accessibility Guidelines Working Group. This planned W3C
   Working Group Note describes the challenges of using web
   technologies for people with learning disabilities or cognitive
   disabilities. It provides a basis for subsequent work to
   develop strategies and techniques to improve accessibility for
   these user groups. Learn more about the Web Accessibility
   Initiative (WAI).

W3C Invites Implementations of Compositing and Blending Level 1
(Updated)

   13 January 2015 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/4308

   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group and the SVG
   Working Group invite implementation of the updated Candidate
   Recommendation of "Compositing and Blending Level 1."
   Compositing describes how shapes of different elements are
   combined into a single image. There are various possible
   approaches for compositing. Previous versions of SVG and CSS
   used Simple Alpha Compositing. In this model, each element is
   rendered into its own buffer and is then merged with its
   backdrop using the Porter Duff source-over operator. This
   specification will define a new compositing model that expands
   upon the Simple Alpha Compositing model by offering: additional
   Porter Duff compositing operators; advanced blending modes
   which allow control of how colors mix in the areas where shapes
   overlap; compositing groups. In addition, this specification
   will define CSS properties for blending and group isolation and
   the properties of the ‘globalcompositeoperation’ attribute as
   defined in HTML Canvas 2D Context, Level 2. Learn more about
   the Style Activity and the Graphics Activity.
