Subject Re: 3.0 API freeze in a week time
Date Tue, 09 Nov 2004 08:17:13 GMT
Just wanted to encourage the HTTP Client team for some excellent work that's 
in itself interesting and well thought-out, as well as being useful to me 
again and again in a wide variety of products.

Keep up the good work!

Thanks,
Chris
