[css3-transitions] New WD of CSS Transitions

The CSS WG published a new draft of the CSS Transitions Module level 3:


The 'transition' property allows to "slow down" the change in style on 
transitions between different states (i.e., between different 
pseudo-classes). Without a transition, the change between, e.g., normal 
and ':hover' is instantaneous; with a transition, the change occurs 
gradually, say over half a second. This makes such changes more visible 
and may help users understand better what is happening.

Compared to the previous draft, this one contains more details, 
especially of complex situations, such as overlapping and interrupted 
transitions. The draft also has acquired an extra co-editor: David 

The draft has a link to a ChangeLog[1] file, which explains the edits 
(big and small) up to the date of publication.

As usual, comments are welcome. Please, send them to this mailing list, 
<www-style@w3.org>. If you add


at the start of the subject line (like on this message), it will be 
easier for the editors to find your comments.
