We have called it Canvas 3.0 as the original HTML 5 Canvas tag is 1.0. Helper libraries like CreateJS and PixiJS that give us the BOM (Bitmap Object Model) are Canvas 2.0. Higher level frameworks like Phaser and ZIM are Canvas 3.0. Phaser focuses on games and ZIM is a general canvas framework with many conveniences, components and controls - and can do 2D games too.
