Subject: Re: [saml-dev] Which version to use?

Got it. Michael. As a conclusion I would say new implementations should just 
focus on SAML 2.0.

Thanks guys for answers.

Just to emphasize Irving's point.  The Liberty Alliance states no more
work will be done on ID-FF because it has been turned over to OASIS.  I
don't mean this in a derogatory way, but ID-FF is effectively a "dead
end".  Yes it works, yes it was quality work, yes it benefited the
industry, but I personally don't see why a new project would consider
using ID-FF over SAMLv2 (unless you are deploying NOW and need concrete
stable standards NOW).  The future along this path is SAMLv2.

SAMLv2 *is* the merge of SAML and Liberty ID-FF standards into one. That
is why Liberty contributed their ID-FF work to OASIS; both organizations
agreed that it would be best to move to a single standard, managed by an
acknowledged public standards body.
