"After three years of development and debate, there is light at the end of the tunnel for HTML5. The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) on Monday announced that the "last call" date for HTML5 would occur in May of this year. The W3C also announced that testing will extend until 2014, at which point HTML5 will be declared an official W3C specification.

"With the move for a last call, the W3C is formalizing the process by which HTML5 will be completed and eventually widely adopted by Web developers and users.

"Ian Jacobs, head of W3C communications, explained to InternetNews.com that the last call is essentially a feature freeze. Once it is put in place, new features are not going to be added to the HTML5 specification. Instead, in May, the W3C will enter the implementation phase for HTML5, which is all about testing and interoperability, Jacobs said."
