Fwd: New Version Notification for draft-vkrasnov-h2-compression-dictionaries-01.txt

Yesterday I posted a new version of my proposal that allows for cross-stream compression in HTTP/2.

This allows for significant improvement in compression ratio for a variety of use cases, including server->client and origin->server, and works with both deflate and brotli.

The main changes from the previous version include the option to concatenate dictionaries, and the use of static dictionaries, that improve compression ratio even for connections that serve only a single resource.

Feedback is appreciated.

>   settings values that would enable the use of previously transferred
>   data as compression dictionaries, significantly improving overall
>   compression ratio for a given connection.
>   In addition, this document proposes to define a set of industry
>   standard, static, dictionaries to be used with any Lempel-Ziv based
>   compression for the common textual MIME types prevalent on the web.
> Please note that it may take a couple of minutes from the time of submission
> until the htmlized version and diff are available at tools.ietf.org.
