HTML 5 Today and Tomorrow
If you are a regular visitor of C# Corner, I am
sure, you have heard about HTML 5
and how it has impacted the Web development world. As a matter of fact, I give
HTML 5 credit for killing both Adobe Flash and Microsoft Silverlight. We took
HTML 5 seriously a year ago and start building C# Corner in HTML 5. Also, we
have a dedicated section on C# Corner on HTML 5 and have published over 200 articles.
Today, HTML 5 has become an industry standard
for Web development with the support of Microsoft, Google and Adobe. I would
not be surprised of the next versions of all major browsers will have a
built-in support for HTML 5.
Today, HTML 5 stands tall and pulling more and
more Web development to its side and gaining more and more support from other
application you could imagine.
So, where is HTML heading to?
“HTML 5.1 is on its way.”
The HTML Working Group has been asked by the W3C
team to provide a credible plan to get HTML 5 to Recommendation status by 2014.
In a proposed plan to the W3C, the HTML WG
“Recognizing the pressures to ship a REC sooner
-- possibly with less functionality -- than later, we are proposing a plan for
taking a stable HTML5.0 specification to W3C Recommendation by the end of 2014,
as well as a plan for taking an HTML 5.1 specification to W3C Recommendation by
the end of 2016.”
“HTML 5 recommendation is Q4, 2014.”
The milestones are the following
LCf: 2014 Q3
PR: 2014 Q4
Rec: 2014 Q4
Well, HTML 5 development is in rapid swing, the
W3C and HTML 5 team has already start working on a plan for HTML 5.1
HTML5.1 milestones are the following:
LC: 2014 Q3
CR: 2015 Q1
Rec: 2016 Q4
Based on these dates, HTML 5.1 Recommendation is
due by 2016 Q4.
