The CSS WG has published an updated Working Draft of the Selectors Level 4:

     http://www.w3.org/TR/selectors4/

Selectors is a pattern-matching syntax for identifying sets of elements in a document,
and is used e.g. for applying CSS declarations to elements in a document tree.

Significant changes since the last Working Draft include:

   * the subject indicator now uses ! instead of $
       http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-selectors4-20120823/#subject
   * a section was added on scoped selectors
       http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-selectors4-20120823/#scoping
   * the :lang() pseudo-class now accepts wildcard matches and language lists
       http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-selectors4-20120823/#the-lang-pseudo
   * drag-and-drop pseudo-classes were added
       http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-selectors4-20120823/#drag-pseudos
       http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2012Aug/0387.html
   * a :user-error pseudo-class was added (for :-moz-ui-invalid)
       http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-selectors4-20120823/#user-pseudos
   * the :column() pseudo-class has been replaced with a combinator
       http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-selectors4-20120823/#column-combinator

Feedback is welcome, particularly on the changes.

Please send any comments to this mailing list, <www-style@w3.org>, preferably
starting a new thread, and please, prefix the subject line with

     [selectors4]

(as I did on this message).

For the CSS WG,
