Release of the UWA specification working draft
The main point of all these releases was (and still is) to help UWA spread to other, yet-unsupported platforms. Being compatible with all major widget platforms (iGoogle, Windows Vista, Apple Dashboard, Live.com, iPhone, Opera, blogs, MySpace, etc.) sure is a great thing, but there are still many websites and widget engines users that could profit from the huge choice offered by our Ecosystem - and we can’t possibly handle them all
So the next natural step is to publish the UWA specification for all to see – and, mostly, platforms implementors. The current document is more of an Editor’s Draft than a real Working Draft (some sections are still missing, for instance), but this is as much details as we can give about the inner functioning of UWA without giving you the source-code – which we already give out anyway
We chose to license it under the Creative Commons BY-SA license, which should give enough freedom as to how you use it. But most importantly, we’d like to hear back from you about this document! This specification documents UWA 1.2, which is still very much in development, and not quite deployed yet, so this is your chance to participate directly in the evolution of the Universal Widget API!
See you on the forum!
