[x3d-public] Continued X3D progress: update to X3D Standards Relationships diagram

While reviewing preparations for SIGGRAPH and Web3D 2021 materials, found an important omission from our X3D Standards Relationships diagram:  W3C Web Audio API.

Proposed revision attached.  Slightly simpler, also refactored XR-related specifications to upper-right corner as future work on X3D 4.1.

Equivalent expressive power between all file encodings and all programming languages is powerful.  Enabling consistent creation and import of X3D models in whatever form, then publishing to the Web via HTML5 or 3D printing or whatever, is a tremendous capability enabling X3D Anywhere.  Interactive 3D interchange can indeed be a "first-class media type" on the Web.

All review welcome.  We will consider all comments, review SIGGRAPH progress and then publish next Friday 13 August at 10-1100 during our regular weekly X3D Working Group meeting.

"Publishing 3D graphics on the Web is powerful. Upcoming X3D V4.0 ISO-IEC Specification improvements add full Web integration, Physically Based Rendering, and VR/AR/Mixed Reality. Web3D participants and partners show how interactive visualization can unlock industry domains for authors and end users: X3D V4.0, glTF/WebGL, Unity3D/Blender/Meshlab, Geo3D, Medical3D, 3Dprinting/scanning, AR/VR. What other capabilities does the SIGGRAPH community need for 3D publishing on the Web?"

  1.  X3D4 Specification Status Report presented during International Standards Organization (ISO) 4-week annual meeting July-August 2021 is now online.  All of our goals and milestones are again on track.

     *   https://www.web3d.org/sites/default/files/page/X3D%20Version%204%20Overview/X3D4SpecificationStatusAugust2021.pdf

  1.  X3DJSAIL Javadoc improvement.  X3D Java Scene Access Interface Library (X3DJSAIL) supports programmers with standards-based X3D Java interfaces and objects, all as open source.
     *   Javadoc documentation is autogenerated along with source code using X3DUOM and X3D Tooltip information.
     *   Package descriptions are again provided, summarizing functional capabilities of each X3D4 component.
