Hi,

I'm sure everybody noticed that drafts announcements a few minutes ago 
-- we just published the -12 drafts of Part 1 through 7 (today is the 
submission deadline before the Bejing IETF meeting, but note the WG is 
*not* meeting there).

In the -12 drafts we made a few bigger and lots of minor changes. 
Overviews are in the appendices:

<http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/draft-ietf-httpbis-p1-messaging-12.html#changes.since.11>

<http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/draft-ietf-httpbis-p2-semantics-12.html#changes.since.11>

<http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/draft-ietf-httpbis-p3-payload-12.html#changes.since.11>

<http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/draft-ietf-httpbis-p4-conditional-12.html#changes.since.11>

<http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/draft-ietf-httpbis-p5-range-12.html#changes.since.11>

<http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/draft-ietf-httpbis-p6-cache-12.html#changes.since.11>

<http://greenbytes.de/tech/webdav/draft-ietf-httpbis-p7-auth-12.html#changes.since.11>

Among the more noteworthy changes are:

- "Handling multiple Content-Length headers" 
<http://trac.tools.ietf.org/wg/httpbis/trac/ticket/95>: we're still 
discussing this, so the current text just is a snapshot

- "Considerations for new status codes" 
<http://tools.ietf.org/wg/httpbis/trac/ticket/229>: it's a start, but 
we'll have to do more work on the details

- "Considerations for new methods" 
<http://tools.ietf.org/wg/httpbis/trac/ticket/230>: see above

- "Factor out Content-Disposition" 
<http://tools.ietf.org/wg/httpbis/trac/ticket/123>: now in a separate spec

- "absorbing the auth framework from 2617" 
<http://tools.ietf.org/wg/httpbis/trac/ticket/237>

Mark Nottingham, our WG chair, will follow up with a list of tickets 
we'd link to close as fixed soonish.

Feedback appreciated, Julian
