Microsoft Open Technologies released an update to the open source HTTP Speed+Mobility Prototype that now implements the latest changes made by Microsoft to the HTTP Speed+Mobility proposal to the IETF httbis workgroup on June 15, 2012.

Back in March, Jean Paoli had articulated, the HTTPbis working group in the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) has approved a new charter to define HTTP "2.0" to address performance limitations with HTTP. The updated proposal reaffirms the guiding principles of HTTP Speed+Mobility -- specifically, the HTTP protocol will have to:

  • Maintain existing HTTP semantics.
  • Maintain the integrity of the layered architecture.
  • Use existing standards when available to make it easy for the protocol to work with the current web infrastructure.
  • Be broadly applicable and flexible, by keeping the client in control of content.
  • And, last but not least, account for the needs of modern mobile clients, including power efficiency, support for HTTP-based applications, and connectivity through costed networks.

You can download the prototype here.

Also, now available for downloadable is the latest Virtual Machines for System Center 2012 SP1 CTP2 Evaluation:
