Opera Software This is old news, but only just crossed my radar! Opera have made available a pre-alpha version of Opera 10.5. There's a massive amount of change under the hood, and I caught wind via taranfx.com.

Yeah, but it will have to be implemented long before that. The 2022 thing is a huge misunderstanding. People think it means nothing will happen until then, which is wrong.

browsers can support whatever they like, the problem is that the standard itself is going to be up in the air until then. Considering that there is currently no free implementation that is good enough for google to consider using with youtube, I wouldn't be suprised if they just wait another 5-10 years to hammer out that detail.

Just because it isn't a final recommendation doesn't mean it's up in the air. Browsers will work on aligning implementations all along, and the more mature the spec becomes, the fewer changes, even if the final spec is years away.

You need to educate yourself about how the process works before spouting nonsense.
