W3C Announce HTML5 2014 Delivery Plan

The W3C has a new plan: HTML5.0 will reach Recommendation status by the end of 2014. All features which are stable and implemented in multiple browsers will be finalized and included within the specification.

New and unstable features will be considered for HTML5.1 which will reach Recommendation status by the end of 2016. And we can presume this cycle will continue for HTML5.2 in 2018, HTML5.3 in 2020 and so on.

In addition, the W3C will cut the size and complexity of the specifications with modular standards. Technologies such as canvas, Web Sockets and web storage will be become discrete projects which do not necessarily follow the HTML5.x schedules.
