Dear colleagues,

Along with the Shibboleth v3 IdP software stack on which it is
based, the current stable version of the xmlsectool utility
(2.0.0) will reach end of life on December 31, 2020. Support and
maintenance, including support for security issues, will
cease for xmlsectool 2.x on this date.

A new supported version 3.0.0 of xmlsectool will be released in
mid-December 2020. This version is based on the Shibboleth v4
IdP software stack, along with updates to many other dependencies.

This new release should be close to a drop-in replacement
for version 2.0.0 for most users.

Note, however, that:

* xmlsectool now requires Java 11 or later

* command-line syntax has changed in a number of minor ways;
  use of the older syntax will in most cases be accepted with
  a deprecation message being issued


Full release notes are available here:

    https://wiki.shibboleth.net/confluence/display/XSTJ3/Release+Notes


A beta release of this new version is available for download
at the following location:

    http://shibboleth.net/downloads/tools/xmlsectool/3.0.0-beta1/

Full documentation for version 3.0.0 can be found here:

    https://wiki.shibboleth.net/confluence/display/XSTJ3

We encourage all users of earlier versions of xmlsectool to download the
beta of version 3.0.0 and test it thoroughly so that they will be
ready to transition away from version 2.0.0 when it reaches its
end of life. Please report any issues here:

Enjoy,

    -- Ian Young, Shibboleth Project
