W3C Invites Developers to Meetup in Sapporo (26 October)

   16 October 2015

   W3C is pleased to invite the developer community to attend the
   W3C Developer Meetup in Sapporo, Japan, on Monday 26 October
   2015. Chaired by Marie-Claire Forgue (W3C) and Kensaku Komatsu
   (NTT Communications), the event’s agenda consists of industry
   demos and a series of short talks on topics such as Web
   payments, Web app security, CSS3, etc. Web designers and
   application developers are encouraged to gather for an evening
   of discussions and networking with others in the W3C community
   who are convening that week during W3C’s TPAC 2015.
   Participation in the meetup is open to anyone at no cost, but
   space is limited. Please register before 25 October 2015 and
   meet us there.


Web Annotation Data Model Draft Published

   15 October 2015

   The Web Annotation Working Group has published a Working Draft
   of "Web Annotation Data Model." Annotations are typically used
   to convey information about a resource or associations between
   resources. Simple examples include a comment or tag on a single
   web page or image, or a blog post about a news article.


First Public Working Draft: Portable Web Publications for the Open
Web Platform

   15 October 2015

   The Digital Publishing Interest Group has published a Working
   Draft of "Portable Web Publications for the Open Web Platform"
   . This document introduces Portable Web Publications, a vision
   for the future of digital publishing that is based on a fully
   native representation of documents within the Open Web
   Platform. Portable Web Publications achieve full convergence
   between online and offline/portable document publishing:
   publishers and users won’t need to choose one or the other, but
   can switch between them dynamically, at will.


First Public Working Draft: FindText API

   15 October 2015

   The Web Annotation Working Group and Web Platform Working Group
   have published a Working Draft of "FindText API." The FindText
   API specification describes an API for finding ranges of text
   in a document or part of a document, using a variety of
   selection criteria.


First Public Working Draft: Generic Sensor API

   15 October 2015

   The Device APIs Working Group has published a Working Draft of
   "Generic Sensor API." This specification defines a framework
   for exposing sensor data to the Open Web Platform in a
   consistent way. It does so by defining a blueprint for writing
   specifications of concrete sensors along with an abstract
   Sensor interface that can be extended to accommodate different
   sensor types.


First Public Working Draft: Confinement with Origin Web Labels

   15 October 2015

   The Web Application Security Working Group has published a
   Working Draft of "Confinement with Origin Web Labels." This
   specification defines an API for specifying privacy and
   integrity policies on data, in the form of origin labels, and a
   mechanism for confining code according to such policies. This
   allows Web application authors and server operators to share
   data with untrusted—buggy but not malicious—code (e.g., in a
   mashup scenario) yet impose restrictions on how the code can
   share the data further.


W3C Updates Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct

   14 October 2015

   W3C released the 2015 edition of the W3C Code of Ethics and
   Professional Conduct. Non-substantive changes since the 2014
   version serve to clarify our documentation, including releasing
   the code under CC0.


   W3C is a growing and global community where participants choose
   to work together, and in that process experience differences in
   language, location, nationality, and experience. Our Code of
   Ethics and Professional Conduct defines principles for
   respectful treatment within the W3C community, and promotes
   high standards of professional practice. This code,
   complemented by a set of Procedures, applies to any member of
   the W3C community – staff, members, invited experts,
   participants in W3C meetings, W3C teleconferences, W3C mailing
   lists, W3C functions, including the upcoming TPAC 2015 in
   Sapporo in a few weeks.


CSS Snapshot 2015 Note Published

   13 October 2015

   The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group has published a
   Group Note of "CSS Snapshot 2015." This document collects
   together into one definition all the specs that together form
   the current state of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) as of 2015.
   The primary audience is CSS implementers, not CSS authors, as
   this definition includes modules by specification stability,
   not Web browser adoption rate.
