This post is a follow up to my previous post.
This post was actually written following the platform preview, but apparently was never published. I am editing it slightly and posting it now that IE9 is out.
- Microsoft will officially make an announcement for it at Microsoft MIX 2010. – correct
- Border-radius support! – correct
- At least a portion of the SVG spec will be supported. – correct
- Native Drag-and-drop – yes
- DOM2 events. – correct
- DOMContentLoaded support. -yes
- Box-shadow and text-shadow- box-shadow yes, text-shadow no – WTF!!!!!
- @font-face to support truetype fonts – yes
- opacity – correct
So that was 6 for 10 that are a lock right now. What about the stretch predictions?
- CSS gradients – coming in IE10
- CSS transitions and transforms – coming in IE10
- W3C Ranges/Selection – correct
- Video element to support H.264 and ogg vorbis – We know it supports H.264, but won’t support ogg. Does support WebM if you have it installed.
- Audio element to support mp3 and ogg. – We know it supports mp3 (and AAC), but won’t support ogg
- DOM3 events – correct
- Web Forms 2.0 – none
So that is two fully correct and two partials.
