Call for Review: IndieUI Events (for Mobile and More) Draft Updated

Dear WAI Interest Group Participants,

"IndieUI" - Independent User Interface - helps web applications work better with different devices (such as mobile phones and tablets), different assistive technologies (AT), and different user needs.

We invite you to comment on an updated Working Draft of IndieUI: Events published today at:
	http://www.w3.org/TR/indie-ui-events/

IndieUI defines a way for different user interactions to be translated into simple events and communicated to web applications. (For example, if a user wants to scroll down a page, they might use their finger on a touch screen, or click a scroll bar with a mouse, or use a scroll wheel, or say "scroll down" with a voice command. With IndieUI, these are all sent to the web app as simply: scroll down.) With IndieUI, web application developers will have a uniform way to design applications that work for multiple devices and contexts.
To learn about IndieUI, see the Overview page at:

Information on recent and upcoming updates to the IndieUI: Events Working Draft is available in:
* Appendix B. Normative changes since the last public working draft <http://www.w3.org/TR/2013/WD-indie-ui-events-20130730/#changelog>
* Open issues and actions tracker <http://www.w3.org/WAI/IndieUI/track/products/2> -- lists open issues & actions, and links to closed issues & actions, which are the basis for most of the previous and upcoming updates
