Between the 27th of July and the 2nd of August,

  • Mux did a quality post about colorspaces in browser. Worthy of the Β πŸ₯Ž Weekly Golden Ball!
  • Bitmovin's encoder added support for Dolby Atmos.
  • Apple posted a huge article on "Speculation in JavaScriptCore", which is pretty cool. On the other hand, the next Technology Preview didn't have anything on multimedia – not so cool!
