    HTTP/2 took a big step toward becoming a reality; it’s been officially finalized and now moves towards being fully standardized.

    According to a blog by Mark Nottingham, the chair of the IETF HTTP Working Group, the standard was completed today and is on its way to the RFC Editor to go through editorial processes before being published as a standard.

    HTTP/2 is the next big version of the Hypertext Transfer Protocol, marking this the largest change since 1999 when HTTP 1.1 was finalized.

    This new standard brings a number of benefits, such as faster page loads, longer-lived connections, more items arriving sooner and server push. HTTP/2 uses the same APIs that developers are familiar with, but offers a number of new features they can adopt.

    For more info, checkout HTTP/2 FAQ's or head over to Mark's Blog.

    I would be very interested to know how TLS is really affected. I mean that say some things in the spec, but I specifically want to know if HTTPS is still needed given the new TLS requirement.
