This document summarizes the various technologies developed in W3C that increase the capabilities of Web applications, and how they apply more specifically to the mobile context. A good subset of these technologies are described and explained in the W3C online training course on programming Web applications (“Mobile Web 2: Programming Applications”).
This new edition of the mobile Web apps standards roadmap includes a few changes and additions since September 2013, including:
- 6 documents reaching Recommendation status (a record), which shows increased maturity of the platform;
- 4 FPWD (first public working draft) and 4 new editors drafts illustrate it is still growing up nicely;
- and a lot of changes linked to performance, off-line support and packaging.
The roadmap features Web platform technologies that are organized under these categories: graphics, multimedia, device adaptation, forms, user interactions, data storage, personal information management, sensors and hardware integration, network, communication and discovery, packaging, performance & optimization.
