  +Release 2.0 Beta 1
  +-------------------
  +Changes since Release 2.0 Alpha 3:
  +
  + * Changed HttpConnection to use socket timeout instead of busy 
  +   waiting while expecting input.
  +
  + * Added a getResponseContentLength() method to HttpMethod.
  +
  + * Changed HttpClient to accept correctly encoded URLs instead of 
  +   attempting to encode them within HttpClient.
  +
  + * 'Expect: 100-continue' logic factored out into an abstract 
  +   ExpectContinueMethod class
  +
  + * 'Expect: 100-Continue' handshake disabled per default, as it may not work 
  +   properly with older HTTP/1.0 servers or proxies.
  +
  + * Reengineered authentication code.  This includes a fix for 
  +   HttpClient continually attempting to authenticate to digest realms and 
  +   provides for better future extensibility.
  +
  + * Authenticator class deprecated
  +
  + * Improved user documentation and example code.
  +
  + * Added ability to differentiate between different hosts using the 
  +   same realm names.
  +
  + * Added support for specifying a virtual host name to use.
  +
  + * Fixed problem with half-closed connections causing a 
  +   HttpRecoverableException to be thrown when HttpClient attempts to read 
  +   from a socket.
  +
  + * Improved reliability with the HEAD method and servers that 
  +   incorrectly include a response body.
  +
  + * Improved support for connection keep-alive when communicating via a proxy
  +
  + * Added an override of HttpClient.executeMethod that lets the
  +   caller specify an HttpState object.
  +
  + * HttpConnectionManager is now a property of the HttpClient class, 
  +   not of the HttpState class
  +
  + * Added ability to specify the local address that HttpClient should 
  +   create connections from.
  +
  +
  +Release 2.0 Alpha 3
  +-------------------
  +Changes since Release 2.0 Alpha 2:
  +
  + * Abstract EntityEnclosingMethod class has been introduced to encapsulate
  +   common behaviour of all entity enclosing methods
  +
  + * "Expect: 100-continue" handshake support added for POST, PUT & multipart POST
  +
  + * Added support for chunked requests for POST and PUT.
  +
  + * Added support for 303 See Other redirections.
  +
  + * Changed input and output streams to use buffering to improve performance.
  +
  + * Improved handling of multivalue headers.  Order is now preserved and 
  +   convenience methods have been added to access each value.
  +
  + * In non-strict mode each cookie sent with the request is put on a separate 
  +   request header. In strict mode all cookies are crammed into one request header, 
  +   as before.
  +
  + * ResponseInputStream class deprecated.
  +
  + * RequestOutputStream class deprecated.
  +
  + * Custom character set can be specified for all multipart classes. 
  +
  + * Custom content type can be specified for FilePart derived multipart classes.
  +
  + * The useDisk methods in GetMethod class deprecated.
  +
