Hi All,

Today the group hit a major milestone in the Generic Sensor API specification development: the last remaining Level 1 issue was addressed, and we're now at "zarro boogs" after closing altogether 94 issues [1].

Congratulations to the group for this accomplishment!

The group has been working toward this milestone for over two years (First Public Working Draft was published 15 Oct 2015). The revised Level 1/2 plan was outlined in 30 June 2017 [2].

As discussed on the 7 Sep 2017 WG teleconference [3], the next step for the group is to initiate wide reviews. The proposed wide review scope is the following: Generic Sensor API, Ambient Light Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Magnetometer, Orientation Sensor, and as an informative document Motion Sensors Explainer. The group also indicated interest to gather web developer review and feedback from the Chrome implementation [4] in parallel to the wide review.

When the wide reviews have been completed, we will look into advancing the Generic Sensor API Level 1 to Candidate Recommendation, and start looking into Level 2 issues [5].
