 HttpComponents Project News 
 
+* 10 February 2011 - HttpComponents HttpClient 4.2-beta1 released
+
+    This is the first BETA release of HttpClient 4.2. This release completes development
of several
+    notable enhancements in HttpClient:
+
+    * New facade API for HttpClient based on the concept of a fluent interface. The fluent
API 
+      exposes only the most fundamental functions of HttpClient and is intended for relatively

+      simple use cases that do not require the full flexibility of HttpClient. However, the
fluent 
+      API almost fully relieves the users from having to deal with connection management
and 
+      resource deallocation.
+
+    * Redesigned and rewritten connection management code. As of release 4.2 HttpClient will
be 
+      using pooling connection manager per default.
+
+    * Enhanced HTTP authentication API that enables HttpClient to handle more complex authentication
+      scenarios. HttpClient 4.2 is now capable of making use of multiple authentication challenges
+      and retry authentication with a fall-back scheme in case the primary one fails. This
can be
+      important for compatibility with Microsoft products that are often configured to use
+      SPNEGO/Kerberos as the preferred authentication scheme.
+
 * 7 February 2012 - HttpComponents HttpClient 4.1.3 (GA) released
 
     HttpClient 4.1.3 is a bug fix release that addresses a number of non-critical issues
