Web Platform Working Group Updates Web App Manifest and Selection API

   24 November 2015

   The Web Platform Working Group has published two Working

     * Web App Manifest: 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 manifest is applied and provides a means
       to “deep link” into a web application from other
     * Selection API: This document is a preliminary draft of a
       specification for the Selection API and selection related
       functionality. It replaces a couple of old sections of the
       HTML specification, the selection part of the old DOM Range
