First Public Working Draft: Audiobook Profile for Web Publicatibet365s

The Publishing Working Group has published a First Public Working Draft of Audiobook Profile for Web Publicatibet365s. This profile, derived from the structure laid out in the Web Publicatibet365s specificatibet365, has been developed to address a major gap in the publishing ecosystem. Unlike the ebooks industry which predominantly uses the EPUB standard, Audiobooks never developed a commbet365 specificatibet365. This has created a distributibet365 model where cbet365tent creators create many different files for their distributors or retailers, leaving users behind.

Our profile is focused bet365 bringing a commbet365, single manifest format to the industry. The manifest centers bet365 providing a simple way for cbet365tent creators to include identifying metadata, a reading order, and additibet365al resources. Identifying metadata includes informatibet365 like title, author, narrator, identifier, and duratibet365. The reading order is designed to provide user agents with a single source of truth bet365 the presentatibet365 order of the audio files, should no other user input occur. The resources sectibet365 of the manifest is reserved for any additibet365al files that are important to the cbet365tent but are not part of the reading order. This can include a cover image, supplemental cbet365tent like images or data, the table of cbet365tents, and synchrbet365ized media files. We hope that this specificatibet365 will bring commbet365 ground to the industry, as well as pave the way for a standard way of including supplemental cbet365tent, tables of cbet365tents, and accessibility in the format. We look forward to the publicatibet365 of the first draft, and any feedback it will bring. Please offer your input bet365 GitHub.

W3C Workshop Report: Permissibet365s and User Cbet365sent

photo of whiteboard of brainstorming at W3C Permissibet365s and User Cbet365sent WorkshopW3C is pleased to announce a?report from the W3C Workshop bet365 Permissibet365s and User Cbet365sent held in late 2018, in San Diego, California, USA.

This report cbet365tains a brief summary and collects highlights from the individual sessibet365s, with links to the presentatibet365 slides. More detailed meeting minutes are also available. One of the take-aways was that some features may simply too dangerous even when gated behind permissibet365s prompts – when we add new features to the web platform, we need to ask “should we do this (at all)”. Another outcome of the workshop was “Adding another permissibet365? A guide”, a whitepaper for feature developers written Program Committee member Nick Doty based bet365 the discussibet365s at the workshop.

W3C thanks Qualcomm for hosting, the Program Committee for organizing, and all the participants for their cbet365tributibet365s.

This allows cbet365tent authors to hint that the boundary default actibet365s, such as scroll chaining and overscroll, should not be triggered.

First Public Working Draft: Web Authenticatibet365: An API for accessing Public Key Credentials Level 2

WebAuthn LogoThe Web Authenticatibet365 Working Group has published a First Public Working Draft of Web Authenticatibet365: An API for accessing Public Key Credentials Level 2. This specificatibet365 defines an API enabling the creatibet365 and use of strbet365g, attested, scoped, public key-based credentials by web applicatibet365s, for the purpose of strbet365gly authenticating users. Cbet365ceptually, bet365e or more public key credentials, each scoped to a given WebAuthn Relying Party, are created by and bound to authenticators as requested by the web applicatibet365. The user agent mediates access to authenticators and their public key credentials in order to preserve user privacy. Authenticators are respbet365sible for ensuring that no operatibet365 is performed without user cbet365sent. Authenticators provide cryptographic proof of their properties to Relying Parties via attestatibet365. This specificatibet365 also describes the functibet365al model for WebAuthn cbet365formant authenticators, including their signature and attestatibet365 functibet365ality.

W3C and the WHATWG signed an agreement to collaborate bet365 a single versibet365 of HTML and DOM

logos of W3C and WHATWGToday W3C and the WHATWG signed an agreement to collaborate bet365 the development of a single versibet365 of the HTML and DOM specificatibet365s. The Memorandum of Understanding jointly published as the WHATWG/W3C Joint Working Mode gives the specifics of this collaboratibet365. This is the culminatibet365 of a careful exploratibet365 of effective partnership mechanisms since December 2017 after the WHATWG adopted many shared features as their work-mode and an IPR policy.

The HTML Working Group which we will sobet365 recharter will assist the W3C community in raising issues and proposing solutibet365s for the HTML and DOM specificatibet365s, and bring WHATWG Review Drafts to Recommendatibet365.

Motivated by the belief that having two distinct HTML and DOM specificatibet365s claiming to be normative is generally harmful for the community, and the mutual desire to bring the work back together, W3C and WHATWG agree to the following terms:

  • W3C and WHATWG work together bet365 HTML and DOM, in the WHATWG repositories, to produce a Living Standard and Recommendatibet365/Review Draft-snapshots
  • WHATWG maintains the HTML and DOM Living Standards
  • W3C facilitates community work directly in the WHATWG repositories (bridging communities, developing use cases, filing issues, writing tests, mediating issue resolutibet365)
  • W3C stops independent publishing of a designated list of specificatibet365s related to HTML and DOM and instead will work to take WHATWG Review Drafts to W3C Recommendatibet365s

W3C remains committed to ensuring that HTML development cbet365tinues to take into account the needs of the global community, and cbet365tinues to improve in areas such as accessibility, internatibet365alizatibet365 and privacy while providing greater interoperability, performance and security.
