Wednesday, April 16th, 2008p>The W3C has issued a last call on the XMLHttpRequest spec:
The Web API Working Group has published the Last Call Working Draft of The XMLHttpRequest Object. The XMLHttpRequest Object specification defines an API that provides scripted client functionality for transferring data between a client and a server. Comments are welcome through 2 June. Learn more about the Rich Web Client Activity.
It is nice to see things all speced out, including the fact that you can now get back real errors (SECURITY_ERR, NETWORK_ERR, ABORT_ERR).
There are future thoughts for the spec.next too:
- Timers have been suggested, perhaps an
- Property to disable following redirects;
responseBodyto deal with byte streams;
overrideMimeTypeto fix up MIME types;
If you have some final thoughts, let them know!
