------- Additional Comments From olegk@apache.org  2004-01-22 13:48 -------
Changelog:
* interactive authentication support
* another bug fix in NTLMScheme class
* InteractiveAuthenticationExample demo app

At the moment I opted for keeping credentials callbacks in a static (global)
class. I am not sure that this is the best solution, but at the moment I lack
better ideas. Do authentication callbacks make sense on per HttpState basis?
HttpClient? HttpClientParams? I felt that credentials callbacks should be global
in order to avoid multiple authentication dialogs  popping up in multithreaded
applications, which, in my opinion, would be a bit confusing. At the same time I
can well imagine that some may feel differently. 

Please let me know what you think.

Oleg
