That new charter adds two new specifications to the group roadmap:
- a second version of the Geolocation API that includes additional information, e.g. civic addesses; an editors draft of that specification is already available;
- a DeviceOrientation Event specification which provides information on the orientation of the device — in other words, it makes it possible to react to accelerometer and gyroscopes changes from within the Web environment; an editors draft of that API is also available, and is known to be already implemented in some mobile browsers (e.g. iOS 4.2+ Safari).
For those interested, please see how to join that group.
