On Monday, December 17, the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) published the complete definitions of HTML5 and Canvas 2D specifications. These specifications are not yet official W3C standards, but they are feature-complete; meaning that developers can now be sure about what to plan for.

W3C CEO Jeff Jaffe had this to say:

"The broader the reach of Web technology, the more our stakeholders demand a stable standard. 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."


W3C also announced the first drafts of HTML 5.1  and Canvas 2D Level 2. These drafts serve as a preview for the next round of talks about standardization, but no word yet on when that will occur.
