This is sorta old news at this point, the publication was announced on 27 April 2011. Bil Corry and I wrote about the spec in early March (acknowledging the many contributors) when it was approved as ‘proposed standard’ and en-queued to the RFC Editor, and others have written about it (in detail) now that the RFC is actually published, so I’ll just point to ’em here…
Daniel Stenberg – The cookie RFC 6265 (english)
Stéphane Bortzmeyer – RFC 6265: HTTP State Management Mechanism (french)
Joachim Strömbergson – Cookie-RFCn 6265 (swedish)
It feels good to get that out the door!
