HTTP/2 Specification Is Final

February 18th, 2015. A day that, for better or worse, will change the internet.

The IESG has formally approved the HTTP/2 and HPACK specifications, and they’re on their way to the RFC Editor, where they’ll soon be assigned RFC numbers, go through some editorial processes, and be published.

This means HTTP/2 has been finalised and the spec is ready to be implemented.

Here are a few things to read up on, in case you're new to the HTTP/2 protocol.

I for one am happy to see HTTP/2 be finalised. There are some really good parts about the spec. Yes, it's lacking in some areas -- but it's by far an improvement over the HTTP/1.1 spec.
