I'll distribute a new version tonight from my website both as Word and PDF
form. I'm happy to take contributions, edits, etc, even at this stage. If
you use Word, and use "Tracking Changes", as that makes it trivial and
fast (ie the work of literally seconds) to incorporate your changes back
into the mainline. If you use other products, like Open Office, just
highlight your changes with a red background and I'll find it.

I think everyone will see that the changes aren't drastic (in fact, no
material has been lost as yet), but I am moving towards the Top 10
approach for the main guide...

* rationale, applicability, what to look for, how to avoid it, further
reading

I'm moving the interesting information such as SAML and SSL stuff
backwards to the appendices. I'd really like for these to be turned into
OWASP articles in their own right, stored on the CMS so they can be
referred to as "Further Reading".

Most designers and coders are looking for details of how to use SAML in
their code, not how the SAML protocols hang together. I've taken this
approach with every single section, and tidied things up.

There's a lot of stuff to be done, but I'm getting through it. :) As
you'll see there are many new headings, and a fair amount of new text. I'm
constrained as I can't work directly on this just yet (have a bit of a
code review to get through first), so I'm still working nights on the
material.

thanks,
Andrew
