Back in February, I announced the start of a series of updates for a standardization roadmap for Web applications on mobile devices, a compilation of the most relevant current and upcoming technologies to develop Web applications well-fitted to mobile devices, which was again updated in May and August 2011.
I have just released a fourth update to that document that takes into account the many changes that have occurred in the past 3 months. Among the highlights:
- the publication of the first draft of the Web Real-Time Communications APIs, including work on the API to access the camera and microphone;
- progress on device APIs such as the Vibration API (first draft), battery status (last call), touch events (last call), accelerometer/gyroscope support (last call).
The next smaller iteration of this document will be provided end of February, in time for Mobile Word Congress 2012. Stay tuned!
