Status roadmap update: srcset, main element, and date inputs in development

Really good to see the Internet Explorer team working on this. Responsive images are a nuisance to implement until they are widely supported across the major browsers.

The official status of srcset is on the Modern IE Status website. The picture element is still under consideration, but even srcset is a step forward.

Also under development: the main element (status) and date-related input types (status).

There are still many steps to be taken, but I see main and srcset as key ones to match the other browsers and to accommodate modern web development. Love it or hate it, Internet Explorer is still a significant browser and these signs of progress are encouraging.

Exciting Things About ASP.NET vNext Series: The Ultimate Guide

ASP.NET vNext is looking to be a very interesting release, in part due to the way the team has changed its development process. Various components under the ASP.NET umbrella are being developed separately, and will be distributed in the form of focused libraries through NuGet. The ASP.NET GitHub account shows the way these are progressing individually.

The topic link points to a master list, compiled by Tugberk Ugurlu, which lists literature currently available about the different components in progress. There is much related reading material listed also.

WordPress Glossary

The WPBeginner site has unveiled a new resource for WordPressers: a glossary. WordPress resources are abundant online, but there has not been a canonical glossary on the subject – the Codex is good for what it does, but it is not a glossary. WPBeginner have taken the initiative to create a centralized listing of WordPress-related terms, along with their definitions, and link to related content as appropriate (good SEO win for WPBeginners as well). It’s a good start, but there’s much more that can be added; the people behind the site are open to suggestions! They are also interested in volunteers to help with managing the glossary.
