Updated Working Drafts of The Screen Orientation API, XMLHttpRequest, DOM4

06 December 2012 | Archive

The Web Applications Working Group published three Working Drafts today:

  • The Screen Orientation API. The Screen Orientation API's goal is to provide an interface for web applications to be able to read the screen orientation state, to be informed when this state changes and to be able to lock the screen orientation to a specific state.
  • XMLHttpRequest. The XMLHttpRequest specification defines an API that provides scripted client functionality for transferring data between a client and a server.
  • DOM4, published in co-operation with the Web Hypertext Application Technology Working Group. DOM defines the event and document model the Web platform uses. The DOM is a language- and platform neutral interface that allows programs and scripts to dynamically access and update the content and structure of documents.
