Offscreen Canvas transferImageBitmap() has been renamed; ImageBitmapRenderingContext may be disabled soon

Published: | Categories: Canvas & WebGL


The ImageBitmapRenderingContext.transferImageBitmap method has been renamed to transferFromImageBitmap in order to follow the latest spec. The old one is now deprecated and will be removed in the near future.

Also, it becomes obvious that the ImageBitmapRenderingContext interface itself has been accidentally shipped with Firefox 46. Since the Offscreen Canvas API is still under active development, the implementation may soon be disabled to wait until the spec is stabilized. No other browsers have shipped the new API, so that the risk should be very low.
