Date Sat, 17 Jan 2004 05:54:41 GMT
The Jakarta Commons HttpClient development team is pleased to announce 
the release of HttpClient 2.0 RC3.  This release consists primarily of 
bug fixes. Please visit the HttpClient website 
<> and download this 
latest release.

The following changes have been made since RC2:

  * HTTP status line parser changed to be more robust when dealing with 
    HTTP responses (leading blanks before 'HTTP' signature).

  * Fixed NPE in HttpMethodBase#responseBodyConsumed().

  * 24309 - Changed MultiThreadedHttpConnectionManager to move to a 
single connection
    GC thread.  Fixed memory and thread leaks.

  * 24327 - Fixed a bug where HttpClient did not reset the 'force-close 
    flag, when an HTTP method was automatically retried (for instance, 
when automatically
    handling an authentication challenge).

  * 24352 - Fixed the bug causing basic authentication via NLTM Proxy to 

  * 25370  - Connections are now closed and released automatically when 
an unrecoverable
    exception occurs in HttpMethodBase.processRequest().

  * 23866 - Fixed possible uncaught IllegalArgumentException in Cookie 

  * 25264 - Added support for cookies with a domain attribute 
'' issued by
    host '' in the browser compatibility mode. Even though the 
cookie violates
    RFC 2109 it still gets accepted by mainstream browsers (tested with 
Mozilla Firebird and IE).

  * 24869 - Changed DigestScheme to only accept a challenge if all 
fields required
    by RFC 2617 are present.

  * 24671 - Added ISO-8859-1 support for digest authentication 
passwords, and basic authentication
    user names and passwords.

  * Javadoc enhancements.

Thank you,

Commons HttpClient Development Team
