To members of the Geolocation Working Group:

After consultation with the W3C staff, it has been determined that the DeviceOrientation spec, currently in Candidate Recommendation status, should request transition to Proposed Recommendation given the implementations that currently exist.

Note that the W3C has conducted a feature support survey of major browsers, and the results are available at:


Given this survey, it has been determined to make compassneedscalibration optional for implementations (https://github.com/w3c/deviceorientation/issues/38), and a Pull request will be generated shortly to address this.

There will also be a PR to address an update of references (e.g. HTML 5.1, WebIDL).

Thank you,

-Giri Mandyam, W3C Geolocation Working Group Chair
