Improvements in packaging and core functionalities:
* October 2015: Implementing Acts Art. 27 & 37 (eSig formats)
The main purpose of this milestone is to align DSS on the Implementing Acts of Art. 27, 37 of eIDAS published in September 2015.
Please note that, as these Implementing Acts published in September 2015 will first designate the “former standards” (baseline profiles ETSI TS 103 171, 103 172, 103 173, and 103 174) and not the upcoming ETSI EN 319 1x2, it was decided to rename this release as DSS 4.6 and not DSS 5.0. The major version DSS 5.0 will be used when these Implementing Acts will be modified in 2016 to point to ETSI EN 319 1x2.
