Subject [ANNOUNCE] Release of Commons HttpClient 2.0 Release Candidate 1
Date Fri, 01 Aug 2003 03:19:43 GMT
The Jakarta Commons HttpClient development team is pleased to announce 
that HttpClient 2.0 BETA development has been concluded. The number of 
bugs discovered in the course of the BETA development was surprisingly 
low. We are confident that HttpClient 2.0 has reached the required 
level of maturity, and we hope to have a final 2.0 release by the end 
of the Summer. Please visit the HttpClient website 
<> and download this 
latest release.

The following changes have been made since Release 2.0 Beta 2:

  * Option to disable 'stale' connection check that may lead to a slight
    performance improvement at the cost of reduced reliability

  * Improved debug logging in multi-threaded connection manager

  * URI.normalize() no longer has an effect on relative URIs.

  * 21532 - Removed use of sun.* class in

  * 20481 - Changed query param encoding to UTF-8.

  * 21378 - Multiple transfer encoding headers are now handled properly. 
Non chunked transfer
    encodings are now handled correctly.

Thank you,

Commons HttpClient Development Team
