Last Call for Comments on Media Queries Level 4

By Florian Rivoal May 19, 2017 (Permalink)
Categories: publications

The CSS WG has published its hopefully last Working Draft of Media Queries Level 4.

Media Queries allow authors to test and query values or features of the user agent or display device, independent of the document being rendered. They are used in the CSS @media rule to conditionally apply styles to a document, and in various other contexts and languages, such as HTML and Javascript.

Level 4 extends and supersedes the features defined in Media Queries Level 3. It brings significant improvements on the syntax, and a shift from using media types to finer-grained media features.

This is the last call for comments, as we plan to request a transition to CR at the end of June unless issues are brought up or anyone specifically requests more time for review.

Significant changes since Media Queries 3 are listed in the Changes section.

Please send feedback by either filing an issue in GitHub (preferable) or sending mail to the (archived) public mailing list www-style@w3.org with the spec code ([mediaqueries-4]) and your comment topic in the subject line. (Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment.)

CSS Basic UI Level 3 Updated Candidate Recommendation

By Florian Rivoal March 2, 2017 (Permalink)
Categories: publications

The CSS WG has published a Candidate Recommendation and invites implementations of the CSS Basic UI Module Level 3:

This specification includes and extends user interface related features from the properties and values of CSS level 2 revision 1. It uses various properties and values to style basic user interface elements in a document.

This document is intended to be essentially complete, and pending approval of a few recently submitted tests, will have an exhaustive test suite, most of which already passes in two or more implementations. Implementors are encouraged to look through the test suite and to fix areas where they are not yet conforming. Unless this last effort uncovers some unexpected problem, this specification should to move to PR and REC relatively soon.

However, CSS-WG would like to draw attention one feature which is at risk of being postponed or dropped: Directional Focus Navigation. This feature is not implemented in any current desktop or mobile browser. One known implementation is the defunct Presto engine by Opera Software. It is also known that TV browsers, especially UAs conforming to HbbTV use this feature, but the state of these implementations is unknown. The CSS-WG encourages TV manufacturers, software vendors for these platforms, or anyone else with an implementation to get in touch, so that we can evaluate how many independent implementations there are, and how conforming they are. In the absence of this information, it is likely that this feature will be postponed.

Significant changes are listed in the Changes section.

A Disposition of comments is available.

Please send feedback by either filing an issue in GitHub (preferable) or sending mail to the (archived) public mailing list www-style@w3.org with the spec code ([css-ui-3]) and your comment topic in the subject line. (Alternatively, you can email one of the editors and ask them to forward your comment.)
