UI Events (formerly DOM Level 3 Events) Draft Published

   19 March 2015

   The Web Applications Working Group has published a Working
   Draft of "UI Events (formerly DOM Level 3 Events)." This
   specification defines UI Events which extend the DOM Event
   objects defined in DOM4. UI Events are those typically
   implemented by visual user agents for handling user interaction
   such as mouse and keyboard input. Learn more about the Rich Web
   Client Activity.


W3C Invites Implementations of Mixed Content

   17 March 2015

   W3C and the Web Application Security Working Group invite
   implementation of “ "Mixed Content,"” a specification that
   aims to improve web security by describing how a user agent
   should handle fetching of content loaded in a mixed security
   context. Specifically, it provides recommendations for the
   handling of content fetched over unencrypted or unauthenticated
   connections in the context of an encrypted and authenticated
   document. The WebAppSec WG, part of the Security Activity,
   welcomes comments on its public mailing list.


Edited Recommendations for RDFa 1.1 Published

   17 March 2015

   The RDFa Working Group has published four Edited
   Recommendations for RDFa 1.1, namely "HTML+RDFa 1.1," "RDFa
   Core 1.1," "RDFa Lite 1.1," and "XHTML+RDFa 1.1." The
   HTML+RDFa 1.1 Recommendation had to be updated now that both
   "RDF 1.1 Concepts" and "HTML5" are Recommendations, in order to
   resolve dependencies and finalize the pending normative status
   of some HTML+RDFa 1.1 features. Using the opportunity of a
   republication of this document, the few editorial errata in all
   the RDFa 1.1 documents have also been taken care of. The
   Working Group has also published a new version of the "RDFa 1.1
   Primer" Working Group Note. Learn more about the Data Activity.


Web MIDI API Draft Published

   17 March 2015

   The Audio Working Group has published an updated Working Draft
   of "Web MIDI API." This specification provides users with a
   bridge between a Web browser and their MIDI-capable devices,
   such as musical instruments, lighting controls, or any other
   MIDI device. With this API, users can control or exchange
   information with MIDI devices directly from the browser. The
   Web MIDI API is a low-level feature, intended for use with
   other web platform features, like the Web Audio API, with the
   goal of familiarity for users of operating-system-level MIDI
   APIs, such as Apple’s CoreMIDI and Microsoft’s Windows MIDI
   API. Learn more about the Rich Web Client Activity.


CSS Grid Layout Module Level 1 Draft Published

   17 March 2015

   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group has published a
   Working Draft of "CSS Grid Layout Module Level 1." This CSS
   module defines a two-dimensional grid-based layout system,
   optimized for user interface design. In the grid layout model,
   the children of a grid container can be positioned into
   arbitrary slots in a flexible or fixed predefined layout grid.
   Learn more about the Style Activity.


Public Identifiers for entity resolution in XHTML Note Published

   17 March 2015

   The HTML Working Group has published a Group Note of "Public
   Identifiers for entity resolution in XHTML." This document
   adds an additional public identifier that should be recognized
   by XHTML user agents and cause the HTML character entity
   definitions to be loaded. Unlike the identifiers already listed
   by the HTML 5 specification, the identifier added by this
   extension references the set of definitions that is used by
   HTML. Learn more about the HTML Activity.
