  • All websites, including EDGAR, will be upgraded to require Transport Layer Security 1.2. After the upgrade, all domains will no longer accept connections from systems and browsers using older security standards. Current versions of all major browsers are TLS 1.2 compliant. Filers and other EDGAR users should consider upgrading their browsers and systems to ensure continued ability to use EDGAR and to connect to SEC websites.
  • EDGAR Renderer Plugin was updated in December 2019 to version 3.19.3.a.u2 to improve performance for large submissions. Additionally, Inline XBRL Viewer on was updated to version 2.0.2 to resolve various defects.
