- November 2013 -- Highlights
A new page, "RFC Status
Changes", has been released that lists the RFCs whose statuses
have changed since publication. The list indicates the date of the
status change and links to the Document or Protocol
Action or the RFC requesting the change are provided where possible.
In addition, the RFC Editor is retiring the practice of publishing RFCs xx99,
the Request for Comments Summary for RFC Numbers xx00-xx99 because this
information is readily available online (e.g., search results). RFC numbers
typically reserved for these documents (i.e., numbers ending with 99) may be
assigned to future RFCs. See
to the IETF Announce list and the discussion on the RFC Interest list
for more information
