The Pointer Events Working Group has published Pointer Events Level 2 as a W3C Recommendation. The features in this specification extend or modify those found in Pointer Events, a W3C Recommendation that describes events and related interfaces for handling hardware agnostic pointer input from devices including a mouse, pen, touchscreen, etc. For compatibility with existing mouse based content, this specification also describes a mapping to fire Mouse Events for other pointer device types. This new W3C Recommendation supersedes Pointer Events Level 1.
