First Public Working Draft of Geometry Interfaces Module Level 1, Last Call: CSS Masking Module Level 1

The Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) Working Group and the SVG Working Group have published two documents today:

  • A First Public Working Draft of Geometry Interfaces Module Level 1. This specification describes several geometry interfaces for the representation of points, quads, rectangles and transformation matrices. The SVG interfaces are aliasing the interfaces in favor for common interfaces used by SVG, Canvas 2D Context and CSS Transforms.
  • A Last Call Working Draft of CSS Masking Module Level 1. CSS Masking provides two means for partially or fully hiding portions of visual elements: masking and clipping. Masking describes how to use another graphical element or image as a luminance or alpha mask. Clipping describes the visible region of visual elements. The region can be described by using certain SVG graphics elements or basic shapes. Anything outside of this region is not rendered. Comments are welcome through 19 June 2014.
