-Changes since release 4.3 BETA2
+Release 4.3 BETA2
 -------------------
 
+This is the second BETA release of HttpClient 4.3. The most notable features and improvements

+in the 4.3 branch are: 
+
+* Support for Java 7 try-with-resources for resource management (connection release.)
+
+* Added fluent Builder classes for HttpEntity, HttpRequest, HttpClient and SSLContext instances.

+
+* Deprecation of preference and configuration API based on HttpParams interface in favor
of
+constructor injection and plain configuration objects.
+
+* Reliance on object immutability instead of access synchronization for thread safety. 
+Several old classes whose instances can be shared by multiple request exchanges have
+been replaced by immutable equivalents. 
+
+* DefaultHttpClient,  DecompressingHttpClient, CachingHttpClient and similar classes are

+deprecated in favor of builder classes that produce immutable HttpClient instances. 
+
+* HttpClient builders now dynamically construct a request execution pipeline tailored 
+specifically to the user configuration by physically excluding unnecessary protocol components.
+
+* There is now an option to construct a minimal HttpClient implementation that can only execute

+basic HTTP message exchanges without redirects, authentication, state management or proxy
support.
+This feature might be of particular use in web crawler development. 
+
+* There is now option to avoid strict URI syntax for request URIs by executing HTTP requests

+with an explicitly specified target host. HttpClient will no longer attempt to parse the
request 
+URI if it does not need to extract the target host from it.
+
+This release also includes all fixes from the stable 4.2.x release branch.
