W3C Open Source Software – News for 2021

This is an archive of the W3C Open Source Software release news for the year 2021. Please read the Latest News for up-to-date information.

Version 1.45 of b6+

2021-11-28 The slide framework b6+ has a couple of new features: 1) When slides are embedded in an iframe or object, links in the slide replace the parent document, rather than open inside the iframe. 2) It is possible to embed a slide as a static page, disabling the navigation to other slides. 3) Accessibility has improved: When switching slides, the new slide is made available to screen readers. See an explanation of ARIA role=application and aria-live by Léonie Watson. The explanation talks about Shower, but b6+ is similar. 4) When slides do not have ID attributes, you can still start at a specific slide by giving its number as fragment ID. E.g., to open a presentation with slide 25, end the URL with ?full#25. 5) The F1 key switches to full screen, because not all browsers provide a command for that. 6) Pressing the ‘?’ key in slide mode pops up a brief overview of available commands. 7) It is now possible to disable the use of a left mouse click to advance slides. 8) Another option hides the mouse pointer when it doesn't move for some seconds. 9) Various small bug fixes and improvements.

You can read the manual or download a zip file containing the JavaScript file (b6plus.js), a style sheet (simple.css), the manual (Overview.html) and some images used in the manual.
