The Audio Working Group has published an updated Working Draft of Web MIDI API.

The Web MIDI API is a low-level feature, intended for use with other web platform features, like the Web Audio API, with the goal of familiarity for users of operating-system-level MIDI APIs, such as Apple’s CoreMIDI and Microsoft’s Windows MIDI API.
