The CSS WG has published an updated Working Draft of the CSS Paint API Level 1:

    https://www.w3.org/TR/css-paint-api-1/

This specification defines an API for drawing CSS images from a
<canvas>-like API,
intelligently repainted only when necessary,
and able to draw in information from properties on the element as well.
A number of fun demos of the feature can be found at
<https://css-houdini.rocks/> - this currently requires Chrome, with
the "Experimental Web Platform Features" flag turned on, but it will
be shipping publicly soon, and implementations in other browsers are
eagerly expected.

Changes in this publication are mostly algorithmic, fixing problems
and tightening definitions. A major author-facing change is the
addition of arguments to the paint() function, so information can be
passed *directly* to a given paint() invocation, rather than always
requiring indirecting thru custom properties (which prevented using
the same paint() function multiple times on a single element).

Please review the draft, and file any comments in the GitHub repository at:
    https://github.com/w3c/css-houdini-drafts/issues

For the CSS WG,
~Tab Atkins
