Mark Nottingham, the chair the IETF HTTP Working Group have written on the blog post that the standard was completed and got approved. It is on its way to the RFC Editor to go through editorial processes before being published as a standard.
The HTTP 2.0 standard is based on SPDY, which was introduced by Google and adopted by other browsers. That HTTP 2.0 originated from a Google protocol has caused some consternation. Google also announced that the company is planning to switch fully to HTTP/2 in Chrome.
Last year Nottingham noted on the blog post-
HTTP/2 doesn't require you to use TLS (the standard form of SSL, the Web's encryption layer), but its higher performance makes using encryption easier, since it reduces the impact on how fast your site seems.
