Hi All,

Here's the usual "last two week in the DAS WG" status update:

---+ Generic Sensor API Level 2 issues cherry picked into Level 1

* #257 Synchronizing coordinate systems

The group has almost addressed issue #257 per the resolution from the 11 Jan 2018 WG call [1] by introducing a "local coordinate system" concept into the Generic Sensor API and adding the required hooks to the affected concrete sensors.

Patches have landed to Generic Sensor API, Accelerometer, and Gyroscope:


Orientation Sensor and Magnetometer patches will be submitted for review shortly. After also those changes have landed, the issue #257 is resolved.

* #63 Sensor.frequency needs to be setable to allow frequency adaptation

I'm hearing this issue should be after all deferred to Level 2. Please let us know if you think otherwise.

---+ HTML Media Capture is now a W3C Recommendation
