Just a quick note -

The revision of HTTP/1.1ís specification, obsoleting RFC2616, is complete.

 http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7230 - Message Syntax and Routing
 http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7231 - Semantics and Content
 http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7232 - Conditional Requests
 http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7233 - Range Requests
 http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7234 - Caching
 http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7235 - Authentication

Along with the related documents:
 http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7236 - Authentication Scheme Registrations
 http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7237 - Method Registrations

Thanks to everyone who has commented upon, reviewed and otherwise contributed to them over this nearly seven-year(!) effort.

Special thanks to our Area Directors over the years: Lisa Dusseault, Alexey Melnikov, Peter Saint-Andre and Barry Leiba, along with Yves Lafon, who helped edit Range Requests.

Finally, please warmly thank both Roy Fielding and Julian Reschke the next time you see them (I believe beer would be appreciated); the amount of effort that they put into these documents is far, far more than they originally signed up for, and theyíve done an excellent job.

Now, onwards to HTTP/2...

P.S. This document setís completion also has enabled the publication of these related non-WG documents:
 http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7238 - The Hypertext Transfer Protocol Status Code 308 (Permanent Redirect)
 http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7239 - Forwarded HTTP Extension
 http://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7240 - Prefer Header for HTTP
