-Changes since 4.1.3
+Release 4.2-ALPHA1
 -------------------
 
+This is the first ALPHA release of 4.2. The most notable feature included in this release
is 
+support for connection pools of blocking and non-blocking HTTP connections. Connection pool

+components are based on mature code migrated from HttpClient and HttpAsyncClient modules
but have 
+a slightly different API that makes a better use of Java standard concurrent primitives.

+
+Support for connection pools in HttpCore is expected to make development of client and proxy
HTTP
+services easier and less error prone.
+
+Please note that new features included in this release are still considered experimental
and 
+their API may change in the future ALPHA releases. This release also marks the end of support
for 
+Java 1.3. As of this release HttpCore requires Java 1.5 for all its components. Several classes
and 
+methods deprecated between versions 4.0-beta1 and 4.0 GA (more than two years ago) have been

+removed in this release.
+
+Bug fixes:
+
 * [HTTPCORE-268] Handle runtime exceptions thrown by SSLEngine.
