3.0.0 (XX XX, 2018)

This is the first release of the third-generation Service Provider software. The key documentation links are located on the SP3 space Home page, such as SystemRequirements, Installation, and UpgradingFromV2 material.

This release should interoperate with all previous releases of Shibboleth and other software that supports the same standards. As a major upgrade, the list of issues fixed and features added is numerous and you should refer to the documentation itself for information on what's changed or new.

Significant Behavioral Changes

Significant changes in behavior from previous releases:

Backwards compatibility

We guarantee backwards compability with the most recent V2 version of the SP (2.6.x).  


A lot of syntax has been deprecated in V3.  As a rule of thumb, if something is documented in this space then it is not deprecated.  Otherwise a warning will probably be introduced in the log.  


word Needs work

In V3 the default configuration file name remains shibboleth2.xml

A new namespace has been introduced to police the new funcionality .

New installation create a shibboleth2.xml file 

New Functionality


A new IIS plugin is available for recent (IIS7 and later) versions of IIS.  This is a significant improvement on the previous version#
