SimpleSAMLphp version 1.6.0

simpleSAMLphp version 1.6 was made available earlier this summer. This release note was somewhat delayed here at, due to the fact that I was out of office.

Documentation is available at:

Changes include:

  • Support for HTTP-Artifact binding on both IdP and SP (thanks to Danny Bollaert, Shoaib Ali and Bill Young).
  • Better error reporting from single logout on the IdP- it will now respond with the correct error code to SPs.
  • OpenID 2.0 support.
  • Better support for specifying parameters in the SAML 2 authentication request.
  • Error page when the user accesses the IdP with cookies disabled.

Also, several bug fixes and other changes. See the changelog for more details:
