[[
Security Drafts Update: XML Signature Syntax and Processing 2.0;
Canonical XML Version 2.0

05 March 2010

The XML Security Working Group has published two Working Drafts: XML
Signature Syntax and Processing Version 2.0 and Canonical XML Version
2.0. The first specifies XML syntax and processing rules for creating
and representing digital signatures. XML Signatures can be applied to
any digital content (data object), including XML. The second is a
major rewrite of Canonical XML Version 1.1 to address issues around
performance, streaming, hardware implementation, robustness,
minimizing attack surface, determining what is signed and more. It
also incorporates an update to Exclusive Canonicalization, effectively
a 2.0 version, as well.

Thanks everyone, especially Pratik and Thomas.
