Presentation Exchange v2.1: Working Group Approval

· 1 min read

We are excited to announce that Presentation Exchange v2.1 has reached a significant milestone and is now under review for Working Group Approval. This update marks a critical step forward marking the specification's continued adoption. Community members and stakeholders are encouraged to provide their feedback by April 26, 2024. Barring any significant objections, the proposal will transition to the Working Group Approved state and subsequently seek the approval of the DIF Steering Committee.

What’s New in v2.1?

The latest iteration is a minor release, bringing with it several important updates for stability and adoption:

  • Security Enhancements: We have introduced a "Security Considerations" section, helping users navigate the security implications of the exchange more effectively.
  • Expanded Use Cases: A new "Use Cases" section has been added. This aims to broaden the understanding and applicability of the Presentation Exchange, providing examples and scenarios where it can be implemented.
  • Editorial Improvements: To further enhance the readability and clarity of the documentation, we have made various editorial changes throughout the text.

Future Developments

It’s important to note that as a minor release, v2.1 does not incorporate any breaking changes. This decision ensures stability and backward compatibility. Future potential enhancements are currently being explored and can be tracked via the "Future" tagged issues in our GitHub repository.
