   W3C published the report of the W3C Workshop on Privacy and
   User– Centric Controls workshop held on 20-21 November 2014 in
   Berlin. This exploratory workshop attracted extensive
   participation, including browser vendors, researchers, network
   operators, entrepreneurs, and government representatives.The
   group recognized that issues related to implementing and
   achieving adoption related to privacy and security may be
   similar to those for accessibility and internationalization.
   The Workshop identified concrete next steps that will be
   brought to the attention of the Privacy Interest Group for
   further discussion. The Workshop was hosted by Deutsche Telekom
   and sponsored by the European Commission. Learn more about the
   Privacy Activity.

Manifest for web application Draft Published

   12 February 2015 | Archive

   http://www.w3.org/blog/news/archives/4382?pk_campaign=feed&pk_k
   wd=manifest-for-web-application-draft-published

   The Web Applications Working Group has published a Working
   Draft of "Manifest for web application." This specification
   defines a JSON-based manifest that provides developers with a
   centralized place to put metadata associated with a web
   application. This includes, but is not limited to, the web
   application’s name, links to icons, as well as the preferred
   URL to open when a user launches the web application. The
   manifest also allows developers to declare a default
   orientation for their web application, as well as providing the
   ability to set the display mode for the application (e.g., in
   fullscreen). Additionally, the manifest allows a developer to
   “scope” a web application to a URL. This restricts the URLs to
   which the application can be navigated and provides a means to
   “deep link” into a web application from other applications.

   web applications to request a wake lock. A wake lock prevents
   some aspect of the device from entering a power-saving state
   (e.g., preventing the system from turning off the screen).

   wd=media-capture-and-streams-draft-published

   The Web Real-Time Communications Working Group and Device APIs
   Working Group have published a Working Draft of "Media Capture
   and Streams." This document defines APIs for requesting access
   to local multimedia devices, such as microphones or video
   cameras. This document also defines the MediaStream API, which
   provides the means to control where multimedia stream data is
   consumed, and provides some control over the devices that
   produce the media. It also exposes information about devices
   able to capture and render media. Learn more about the
   Ubiquitous Web Applications Activity.

   The Web Real-Time Communications Working Group has published a
   Working Draft of "WebRTC 1.0: Real-time Communication Between
   Browsers." This document defines a set of ECMAScript APIs in
   WebIDL to allow media to be sent to and received from another
   browser or device implementing the appropriate set of real-time
   protocols. This specification is being developed in conjunction
   with a protocol specification developed by the IETF RTCWEB
   group and an API specification to get access to local media
   devices developed by the Media Capture Task Force. Learn more

       JavaScript APIs that let a Web application manage how audio
       is rendered on the user audio output devices.
     * Screen Capture. This document defines how a user’s display,
       or parts thereof, can be used as the source of a media
       stream using getOutputMedia, an extension to the Media
       Capture API.
