Hi DAS WG,

I’m pleased to announce the Geolocation API has been published as a Candidate Recommendation Snapshot:

https://www.w3.org/TR/geolocation/


Congrats to the group and huge thanks to Marcos, Reilly, other contributors for shepherding this specification to this stage.

There’s a reason for this WG to feel a little proud of this milestone. This spec was sitting unmaintained for long and only after this group adopted the spec and with the help of its participants’ substantial contributors, the spec was brought up the standards expected of a modern CR. This is a demonstration of the group's commitment to maintenance of its older deliverables. Maintenance work like this may not make huge headlines, but makes a huge impact.

(For folks wondering about the “Snapshot” part: the first Candidate Recommendation publication after approval of a Transition Request is always a Candidate Recommendation Snapshot. Since this work started with a new shortname we consider this publication “the first” for W3C Process purposes, even if there's an earlier, now obsoleted CR from 2010.)

Thanks,

-Anssi (DAS WG co-chair)
