The Shibboleth team is pleased to announce the availability of the
Beta 1, Shibboleth v2.0 This new release includes substantial
additions to the functionality, including support for the SAML 2
specification. Information is available at:


Note that this is a beta release; it is NOT suitable for production
use. There is some documentation in the wiki for the new release, but
it is not yet complete. Please feel free to help improve the

We would like to strongly encourage sites using Shibboleth to install
the new version in a clean environment and help with testing. The
more people who use the software, the faster we'll collectively find
and address the bugs that remain in this release.

We would very strongly encourage people new to Shibboleth to begin by
using the current stable release, v1.3, rather than the beta release.

When will the final release of v2.0 be available? When we believe it
is stable. Please help us get to that point, by helping with the

For the IDP install there are two pages that offer insight on howto do
it.  Perhaps this page:


Is intended to be used once the IDP production release is out, but it
skips a few steps that have to be done with the current release.  Those
steps are enumerated on the page:


If we should only be looking at specific documentation at this time, let
me know.

Jeff, the instructions you need are the ones linked to from the
announcement page (IdPBetaTest).  As you guessed the other ones are
meant for when we do the final release.

Just a couple of SP notes...

The Windows installer was tested back in the alpha period, but I haven't had
a chance to test the beta version yet, so just report any issues with it. I
just uploaded a new copy that includes some changes I'm trying to get in
place to the directory structure. I'd rather do it now than post beta.

The RPMs work fine, but I'm probably going to slip some new copies out there
today in order to change how the doc directory is handled by the makefiles.

This has no effect on the code or testing, and it won't matter if you grab
the copies that are there now or later. I'm working on the Mac portfiles and
the broken doc handling in the project has finally started biting me enough
to fix it, and I think I got it working now so the docs end up in
/usr/share/doc/shibboleth instead of /usr/doc/shibboleth.

I'll tag the code today for beta 1 once I stop meddling.

The only change I expect to work on later is around the use of libexec, but
I don't know what to do yet, or how to do it, so I'm not going to touch that
today. It may be that the modules move between now and release. I won't be
changing where they live in the 1.3 package, however.

If there are packagers that believe they have the right answer for where
runtime loadable modules and extensions should live, your input is welcome.
