Hi folks, 

The final of the OWASP Top 10 is now ready and has been uploaded to the
Wiki. The PDF/Word documents are public as of now, but please hold off
making major public noises until Tuesday Italy time as that's when it will
be publicly announced. Feel free to let your friends and colleagues know
about it - there has to be an advantage to working on an open source
project, and this is it! :)

The Board will be sending out a press release on Tuesday, so please avoid
sending anything to the major web sites (eg Digg / Slashdot) without talking
to us first.

Neil and translators: The redline between RC2 and Final is here:


Once you have a copy, I'd like to delete it as it's not necessary for the
public to see that version.

Thanks to Neil for taking his entire weekend to Wiki-fy the Top 10. Neil, in
response to your e-mails, I've added the authors and also re-ordered the
helpers a bit to better reflect their "helperness". Can you re-order the
credits on the main page to be the same? Your effort is at least the same as
Sylans', so feel free to figure out where you should be in relation to
Sylvan's credit. 

As to your other e-mails: It's my view that the next release, Top 10 2008,
will branch off the Wiki version, rather than me holding on to the Word
master. I don't want to be the road block for the 2008 edition as I move
back onto working on the Guide. My view is that we'll keep the Top 10 doc /
docx / PDF versions stable, and update the Wiki versions as the master as of
now, creating milestone releases in Word / PDF version as necessary, say
once every 12 months.

Thanks to everyone who contributed to this release - you have helped improve
a key OWASP deliverable which is used by millions globally.
