HTML5 Specs Finalized, HTML 5.1 & HTML 5.2 Already In Development 15 years since the last update.

A very long time ago (December 24th, 1999), the World Wide Web Consortium has published the finalized specs of HTML 4.01 (HTML 4 has been standardised in 1997). Now, 15 years later, the very same organization has finally W3C Recommendation for HTML5, which means it’s a final version.

I’m sure you’re already aware about a lot of neat HTML5 syntactic features, such as: audio, video and canvas elements, and that’s just scratching the surface.

As far as HTML 5.1 goes, the very first working draft was published in 2012 with the Candidate Rec and Recommendation set to follow in 2015 and 2016 respectively.

And for HTML 5.2, the current plan is to release the very first working draft sometime in 2015.

Next few years are definitely going to be interested.
