F.T.Prince edited them (+The Poems+) for Arden in 1960 -- I'm not sure
if there's anything more recent.
Editor's Note: In my considerable spare time, I have been working on an
edition of the Poems for about six years now.
This edition is being incrementally published by the Internet
Shakespeare Editions <http://ise.uvic.ca/index.html> and when completed
will appear as an "integrated text" published in collaboration with The
Internet Shakespeare Editions and Broadview Press
Currently, parts of Venus and Adonis are available: a facsimile
old-spelling diplomatic transcription
<http://ise.uvic.ca/Library/Texts/Poems/Ven/Ven_QT/index.html> of the
1593 first quarto.
The modern version was, recently, mounted on the server without the
annotations, which are being peer reviewed
I have also completed an old-spelling edition of the Venus and Adonis,
collating the first two quartos, a diplomatic transcription of Q1
Lucrece, and a modern version of Lucrece and am working on the
annotations for Lucrece as well as A Lover's Complaint, Passionate
Pilgrim, and Phoenix and the Turtle, all in various stages of completion.
