Last Tuesday, 24 January, CR drafts of XML Signature 2.0, C14N2 and XML Signature Streaming Profile of XPath 1.0 were published. In addition, XML Security RELAX NG Schemas was published as a W3C Note.

Thanks everyone.

Here is the news item I put on the XML Security WG home page:

----

2012-01-24<http://www.w3.org/News/2012#entry-9332>: The XML Security Working Group<http://www.w3.org/2008/xmlsec/> invites implementation of three Candidate Recommendations: XML Signature Syntax and Processing 2.0<http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/CR-xmldsig-core2-20120124/>,Canonical XML Version 2.0<http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/CR-xml-c14n2-20120124/>, and XML Signature Streaming Profile of XPath 1.0<http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/CR-xmldsig-xpath-20120124/>.

XML Signatures provide integrity, message authentication, and/or signer authentication services for data of any type, whether located within the XML that includes the signature or elsewhere. The XML Security 2.0 specifications are designed to update the XML Signature and Canonical XML specifications to improve performance, streaming support, robustness, and reduced attack surface.

The Working Group has also published a W3C Note: XML Security RELAX NG Schemas<http://www.w3.org/TR/2011/WD-xmlsec-rngschema-20110303/>, a document that provides RELAX NG schemas corresponding to the normative XSD schemas for XML Signature 1.1, XML Encryption 1.1, and related specifications.

To address patent disclosures related to the XML Signature 1.1 and XML Encryption 1.1 specifications, W3C has chartered a Patent Advisory Group<http://www.w3.org/2011/xmlsec-pag/>. Concerns related to XML Signature 1.1 may also apply to XML Signature 2.0.

I've also updated the publication wiki to reflect these publications as well as the earlier Last Call of XML Encryption 1.1 and XML Encryption 1.1 CipherReference Processing using 2.0 Transforms<http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-xmlenc-transform20-20120105/>" , update to the XML Security Algorithm Cross-Reference and the FPWDs of test cases for XML Encryption 1.1 and C14N2.
