TLS 1.1 and DTLS finally published

Just released:
The Transport Layer Security (TLS) Protocol Version 1.1
T. Dierks and E. Rescorla
RFC 4346

This document specifies Version 1.1 of the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol. The TLS protocol provides communications security over the Internet. The protocol allows client/server applications to communicate in a way that is designed to prevent eavesdropping, tampering, or message forgery.

and

Datagram Transport Layer Security
E. Rescorla and N. Modadugu
RFC 4347

This document specifies Version 1.0 of the Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) protocol. The DTLS protocol provides communications privacy for datagram protocols. The protocol allows client/server applications to communicate in a way that is designed to prevent eavesdropping, tampering, or message forgery. The DTLS protocol is based on the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol and provides equivalent security guarantees. Datagram semantics of the underlying transport are preserved by the DTLS protocol.

If you need me, I'll be over here editing the current draft of TLS 1.2.

how bout an update to _SSL_and_TLS_ instead? the
analyses you made in there about TLS usage/non-usage
by the various applications, with the addition of
any inklings of how things will/won't work with DTLS
and what this all means for IPsec, would be a great
companion publication . . .
