   [] W3C has published the January 2015 edition of Standards for
   Web Applications on Mobile, an overview of the various
   technologies developed in W3C that increase the capabilities of
   Web applications, and how they apply more specifically to the
   mobile context.

   A deliverable of the HTML5Apps project, this edition includes
   changes and additions since October 2014, and covers continued
   progress of the platform. A notable change is that the document
   has been re-organized around the categories defined as
   Application Foundations, a set of high-level grouping of
   features that highlight the needs from users and developers for
   the next generation of Web technologies. Learn more about the
   Web and Mobile Interest Group.
