W3C Strategic Highlights, Spring 2019

   23 April 2019

   W3C released today its W3C Strategic Highlights – Spring 2019, a comprehensive survey of the essential work W3C conducts to achieve a Web for All, and select recent work in many areas where the Web can solve arising problems for real people.


   To the pipeline of innovations to enable the Web to scale to meet the new challenges and opportunities, we are making recent additions:

     * W3C chartered a Web Payment Security Interest Group to foster greater coordination and ultimately enhance the security and interoperability of Web payments.
     * Web & Networks: what is needed for the Web to take advantage of 5G, QUIC, and Edge Computing changing the topology of network-based services? We have started to flesh out a group charter in the wake of the W3C Web5G workshop in May 2018.

   As the Web evolves continuously, some groups are looking for ways for specifications to do so as well. So-called “evergreen recommendations” or “living standards” aim to track continuous development (and maintenance) of features, on a feature-by-feature basis, while getting review and patent commitments.

   Continued progress in many areas demonstrates the vitality of the W3C and the Web community. We see the maturation and further development of an incredible number of new technologies coming to the Web.

New version of the Roadmap of Web Applications on Mobile

   24 April 2019

   W3C has published a new version of its Roadmap of Web Applications on Mobile, an overview of the various technologies developed in W3C that increase the capabilities of Web applications, and how they apply more specifically to the mobile context.


   The April 2019 snapshot introduces a few additional technologies under incubation in the Web Platform Incubator Community Group and refreshes the status of other specifications. See the Change history for details. New exploratory work since the December 2018 snapshot:

     * Cookie Store API, described in Data Storage
     * KV Storage, described in Data Storage
     * JS Self-Profiling API, described in Performance and Tuning
     * Trusted Types, described in Security and Privacy

   A few specifications have also progressed along the standardization track, starting with Web Authentication published as a W3C Recommendation (see Security and Privacy), including Resize Observer (see Device Adaptation) and Feature Policy which have now been adopted by Working Groups (see Security and Privacy), as well as DeviceOrientation Event Specification whose development has now resumed in the Devices and Sensors Working Group (see Sensors and Local Interactions).


   Browser support for some of the specifications mentioned in the roadmap has improved since publication of the latest version of the roadmap in December 2018. For instance, Streams shipped in Firefox desktop (see Network and Communications) and Subresource Integrity has now shipped on all main browsers (see Security and Privacy).


   Sponsored by Beihang University, this project is part of a set of roadmaps under development in a GitHub repository to document existing standards, highlight ongoing standardization efforts, point out topics under incubation, and discuss technical gaps that may need to be addressed in the future. New versions will be published on a quarterly basis, or as needed depending on progress of key technologies of the Web platform. We encourage the community to review them and raise comments, or suggest new ones, in the repository’s issue tracker.


First Public Working Draft: CSS Spatial Navigation Level 1

   23 April 2019

   The CSS Working Group has published a First Public Working Draft of "CSS Spatial Navigation Level 1." This specification defines a general model for navigating the focus using the arrow keys, as well as related CSS, JavaScript features and Events.


   "CSS" is a language for describing the rendering of structured documents (such as HTML and XML) on screen, on paper, etc.
