This morning at the Internet Identity Workshop, the OpenID Foundation announced that the OpenID 2.0 Specification and a set of related specifications are now complete. Furthermore, Intellectual Property Contribution Agreements have been executed by all the contributors to these specifications.

Here’s a camera-phone photo of Dick Hardt of Sxip Identity, Josh Hoyt of JanRain, and David Recordon of Six Apart making the announcement. Congratulations to the OpenID community on this significant accomplishment!
