As many of you know, version 2 of OpenSAML will officially reach its end of life at July 31 of 2016. This means that the library will not be receiving any new updates, not even critical security updates.
Because of this, everyone currently using version 2 of OpenSAML is strongly advised to migrate to OpenSAML version 3.
In light of this, I have done a fair amount of research on version 3 and am now releasing a new edition of A Guide to OpenSAML.
The new edition includes:
- Sample project updated for V3
- Updated code and explanatory text
- New chapters on message handlers and message contexts
- A rudimentary migration guide from V2 to V3 (based on changes needed in the sample project)
For the convenience of those of you that have read my previous book and are just migrating to V3, I have provided a chapter in the beginning, summarising all the changes since the last edition.
