In other Microsoft news,

Microsoft's IE team today revealed that Internet Explorer 10 in the Windows 8 Release Preview support all the required W3C draft standard features. According to blog post currenty, the following W3C draft standard features match these criteria and IE10 now supports them in their unprefixed form:

  • Gradients (CSS Image Values and Replaced Content)
  • CSS Animations
  • CSS Transitions
  • CSS Transforms
  • font-feature-settings property (CSS Fonts)
  • Indexed Database API
  • Timing control for script-based animations (requestAnimationFrame)

For compatibility with sites and apps developed using the Windows 8 Consumer Preview, IE10 also supports these standards in their vendor-prefixed form using the Microsoft vendor prefixes (-ms-/ms).

In addition, IE10 also supports the following W3C draft standards in vendor-prefixed form. We believe these drafts do not yet meet the criteria listed above: CSS Flexible Box Layout; CSS Grid Layout; CSS Regions; CSS Exclusions and Shapes; CSS Device Adaptation.

The team says, they will submit new test cases to the W3C for all the features that IE10 now supports without a prefix. "As Working Group members and co-editors, we will work with our colleagues to move these specifications forward to Candidate Recommendation," concludes the IE team.
