XML News from Wednesday, February 27, 2008

The W3C Web API Working Group has posted the first public working draft of XMLHttpRequest Level 2. "XMLHttpRequest Level 2 enhances XMLHttpRequest with new features, such as cross-site requests, progress events, and the handling of byte streams for both sending and receiving." I'm afraid I'm not familiar enough with XMLHttpRequest Level 1 to tell immediately what's new here. Anyone want to summarize?
