Re: [wtp-dev] Notice that preliminary support for HTML5 will be in WTP Service Release 3.2.2 (Helios SR1)

If I'm reading the bug correctly, the HTML5 support comes from a
non-committer contribution. Even with a service release, you'll still
need to have your IP Log reviewed/updated.

Does this change come with any additions/changes in API?
