   -connected-cars

   In recognition of increased consumer demand for data and
   services in Connected Cars, W3C announced today a new
   automotive industry collaboration to bring drivers and
   passengers a rich Web experience. The effort, a new Automotive
   Working Group, will focus initially on giving application
   vendors standard and more secure access to vehicle data.
   “Connectivity is transforming the car industry,” said Matt
   Jones, Head of Future Infotainment at Jaguar Land Rover. “We
   believe the Web is the auto industry’s best path forward to
   keep up with rapidly changing consumer expectations and
   evolving technology, as well as addressing challenges such as
   over-the-air updates and advanced diagnostics.” Read more
   support from industry in the full press release.

Service Workers Draft Published

   http://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/4361?pk_campaign=feed&pk_k
   wd=service-workers-draft-published-2

   The Web Applications Working Group has published a 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.

W3C Invites Implementations of CSS Counter Styles Level 3; Predefined
Counter Styles Draft Published

   edefined-counter-styles-draft-published

   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group invites
   implementation of the Candidate Recommendation of "CSS Counter
   Styles Level 3." It adds new built-in counter styles to those
   defined in CSS 2.1, but, more importantly, it also allows
   authors to define custom styles for list markers, numbered
   headings and other types of generated content. This Candidate
   Recommendation incorporates responses to all feedback received
   during the previous two Last Calls.

   http://www.w3.org/TR/2015/CR-css-counter-styles-3-20150203/

   The Internationalization Working Group has also updated their
   Working Draft of "Predefined Counter Styles," which provides
   custom rules for over a hundred counter styles in use around
   the world. It serves both as a ready-to-use set of styles to
   copy into your own style sheets, and also as a set of worked
   examples.

CSS Positioned Layout Module Level 3 Draft Published

   wd=css-positioned-layout-module-level-3-draft-published

   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group has published a
   Working Draft of "CSS Positioned Layout Module Level 3." This
   module contains the features of CSS level 3 relating to
   positioning and stacking of elements. It includes and extends
   the functionality of CSS level 2, which builds on CSS level 1.
   The main extensions compared to level 2 are the ability to
   position elements based on CSS Region boxes, the ability to
   specify different containing blocks for elements and sticky
   positioning. Other kinds of layout, such as tables, “floating”
   boxes, ruby annotations, grid layouts, columns and basic
   handling of normal “flow” content, are described in other
   modules. Also, the layout of text inside each line is defined
   elsewhere. Learn more about the Style Activity.

   wd=server-sent-events-is-a-w3c-recommendation

   The Web Applications Working Group has published a W3C
   Recommendation of "Server-Sent Events." This specification
   defines an API for opening an HTTP connection for receiving
   push notifications from a server in the form of DOM events. The
   API is designed in a way that it can be extended to work with
   other push notification schemes such as Push SMS. Learn more
   about the Rich Web Client Activity.
