"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."
