Although HTML 5, Canvas are far from being final, they were pushed into candidate status yesterday on December 17th, and the specifications are now feature complete, meaning businesses and developers have a stable target for implementation and planning.
“The broader the reach of Web technology, the more our stakeholders demand a stable standard,” said W3C CEO Jeff Jaffe. “As of today, businesses know what they can rely on for HTML5 in the coming years, and what their customers will demand. Likewise, developers will know what skills to cultivate to reach smart phones, cars, televisions, ebooks, digital signs, and devices not yet known.”
