TTML Profiles for Internet Media Subtitles and Captions 1.0 (IMSC1) is a W3C Recommendation

   21 April 2016

   The Timed Text Working Group has published a W3C Recommendation of "TTML Profiles for Internet Media Subtitles and Captions 1.0 (IMSC1)." This document specifies two profiles of TTML1: a text-only profile and an image-only profile. These profiles are intended to be used across subtitle and caption delivery applications worldwide, thereby simplifying interoperability, consistent rendering and conversion to other subtitling and captioning formats.


First Public Working Draft of Payment Request API Specifications

   21 April 2016

   The Web Payments Working Group has published First Public Working Drafts of the following specifications. These are the first of a suite of specifications to make payments on the Web easier and more secure.

     * Payment Request API, which describes a web API to allow merchants (i.e., web sites selling physical or digital goods) to easily accept payments through different payment methods with minimal integration.
     * Basic Card Payment describes the data formats used by the Payment Request API to support payment by payment cards such as credit or debit cards.
     * Payment Method Identifiers defines payment method identifier strings so that components in the payment ecosystem can determine which parties support which payment methods.

   The Working Group published a FAQ and welcomes feedback on these early drafts.

In his talk, “Realizing the Vision of Publishing Technology with Web Technology” Berners-Lee will preview potential new ways of reading, authoring and publishing in the future that are being made possible by the new rich media environment for publishing.

Web Storage (Second Edition) is a W3C Recommendation

   19 April 2016

   The Web Platform Working Group has published a W3C Recommendation of "Web Storage (Second Edition)." This specification defines an API for persistent data storage of key-value pair data in Web clients. It introduces two related mechanisms, similar to HTTP session cookies, for storing name-value pairs on the client side. The first mechanism is designed for scenarios where the user is carrying out a single transaction, but could be carrying out multiple transactions in different windows at the same time. The second mechanism is designed for storage that spans multiple windows, and lasts beyond the current session.
