The last mention of HTML 5 in the CHANGES file is:

  HTML5_CHARSETS whose default value was not marked properly -TD

(That's from 2012-02-12 (2.8.8dev.10)).

…but HTML 5 is a major revamp of HTML. It throws in a new parsing algorithm, a 
pile of new elements, and a bucket of JavaScript APIs. Large portions of it are 
not the sort of things that could be handled by a plugin.

It isn't sensible to treat it as a monolithic thing to be implemented as a 
single unit (nobody else is doing that) and any questions about browser support 
for HTML 5 are better addressed at the individual feature level.
