Subject [ANNOUNCE] Release of Commons HttpClient 3.0 Alpha 1
Date Tue, 18 May 2004 04:25:45 GMT
We are pleased to announce the first HttpClient 3.0 release.  
HttpClient 3.0 provides a wealth of features and enhancements that did 
not make it into the 2.0 release.  We have attempted to preserve API 
compatibility as much as possible. In a relatively few cases API 
compatibility with HttpClient 2.0 could not maintained.

Noteworthy enhancements include:
   -  New preference architecture
   -  Improved exception handling framework
   -  Granular non-standards configuration and tracking
   -  Improved authentication framework
   -  Plug-in mechanism for authentication modules
   -  Cookie specification plug-in mechanism
   -  Cross-site redirect support

This release is targeted at projects already using HttpClient 2.0.  Now 
is the time to evaluate HttpClient 3.0 and give us some feedback, 
critique or other thought on the new API. Please feel free to file 
requests for additional features.

Please visit the HttpClient Web site 
<http://jakarta.apache.org/commons/httpclient/> for more information.

Thank you,

Commons HttpClient Development Team
