1.7 Versioning and Capability Negotiation

Supported Transports: WebDAV Protocol: Server Extensions use HTTP as the only transport.

Versioning: No new versioning mechanisms have been introduced beyond those that already exist in WebDAV and HTTP, as specified in [RFC4918] and [RFC2068].

Capability Negotiation: Negotiation of WebDAV (as specified in [RFC4918] sections 10.1 and 18) and HTTP capabilities (as specified in [RFC2068] section 9.2) is via the OPTIONS method. This specification extends the OPTIONS method that uses an HTTP response header to indicate which authoring tools are to be used. For more information about authoring, see section 2.2.2.
