It is my great pleasure to announce that WebRTC 1.0 has just been
published as a W3C Recommendation:
  https://www.w3.org/TR/2021/REC-webrtc-20210126/

You can also see the accompanying press release
https://www.w3.org/2021/01/pressrelease-webrtc-rec.html

This publication follows shortly after IETF released last week the last
batch of the many RFCs on which our API builds:
  https://mailarchive.ietf.org/arch/msg/rtcweb/gb_AS4g0n-kmqtPG3f2A_7TPntE/

We still have lots of work ahead of us, but I would like to the
opportunity to thank the many people who've made this possible one or
another:
* the former and current chairs of the group: Stefan Hakansson, Harald
Alvestrand, Erik Lagerway, Bernard Aboba, Jan-Ivar Bruaroey,
* my fellow staff contacts who've worked with the group over the years:
François Daoust, Vivien Lacourba, Carine Bournez,
* the 257 individuals who at point or another participated in the group,
* the many contributors to the spec
https://github.com/w3c/webrtc-pc/graphs/contributors,
* the 60 people who helped build the test suite that we used to guide
implementation and interoperability progress,
* and first and foremost, the former and current editors of the spec:
Cullen Jennings, Henrik Boström, Jan-Ivar Bruaroey, Adam Bergkvist,
Daniel Burnett, Anant Narayanan, Bernard Aboba, Taylor Brandstetter

Our group is 3554 days old, we met 57 times in teleconferences, 16 times
F2F, exchanged 10114 emails (make that 10115), built the spec through
4658 commits merged from 1282 pull requests to resolve 1320 issues,
resulting in a spec of 55897 words that define 622 lines of IDL
featuring 20 interfaces, 37 dictionaries, 22 enums, tested by 149 test
cases with 1789 test assertions.

But more than these metrics, 2020 made abundantly clear to the world how
critical this work has been; there is a lot more that we need to do -
but for a minute or two, let us take the time to pride ourselves of the
work accomplished and the impact we've had.
