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 
<http://ise.uvic.ca/Foyer/broadview.html>.

Currently, parts of Venus and Adonis are available: a facsimile 
<http://ise.uvic.ca/Library/Texts/Poems/Ven/Ven_QI/index.html> and 
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 
<http://ise.uvic.ca/Library/Texts/Poems/Ven/Ven_M/VEN_M.html>.

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.
