A new GCPM editor's draft is available [1]. Most of the changes are
editorial, except:

  - a section on "Styling blank pages" has been added. It introduces a
    new pseudo-class to add style to pages that would otherwise be
    left blank:

      @page :blank {
         @top-center { content: "This page is intentionally left blank" }
      }

  - the 'repeat()' function is back on 'border-parts' by popular demand

  - a new section "Creating paged presentations" bas been added. It
    suggests that it should be possible to express preference for
    page-based presentation by saying:

      body { overflow: paged }

    Or something. This would apply to non-paged media (e.g., screen)
    to get rid of the scrollbar. As such, it's outside the scope of
    GCPM, but it could have wide-reaching consequences for the
    presenation of web pages in browsers.

As always, comments welcome.
