"Put method=DELETE and method=PUT to rest." [sigh]
i can't say i'm surprised. not really angry. just very disappointed.
i saw this on twitter today from @tillsc:
"Why is there no PUT and DELETE support for forms in the #html5 editor's draft" (http://bit.ly/cA9qUu) anymore?
it didn't take too long for this to spread in the twitter-verse.
i traced the latest decision to limit common Web browser's support for HTTP to this exchange in the #what-wg IRC channel on freenode back on September 20th of this year:
"Looking at the HTML spec, I'm not convinced [w]hat we currently have for PUT and DELETE is useful."
actual use cases?
which led to this email thread starting on Sep 20th in public-html
"can anybody point me to actual uses cases for this?..."
PUT to REST
which eventually gets resovled with an edit to the HTML5 draft on Sep 30th:
"...Put method=DELETE and method=PUT to rest."
i am the only one who sees a bit of a Freudian slip in Hixie's change comment?
i told ya...
and i am compelled to re-iterate: the turning point that is HTML5; are you ready?
