The Apache HttpComponents project is pleased to announce 5.0-alpha2
release of HttpComponents Core. 

This is a major release that renders HttpCore API incompatible with the
stable 4.x branch and upgrades HTTP/1.1 and HTTP/2 protocol conformance
to the requirements and recommendations of the latest protocol

Notable changes and features included in the 5.0 series are:

* Partial support for HTTP/2 protocol and partial conformance to
requirements and recommendations of the latest HTTP/2 protocol
specification (RFC 7540, RFC 7541)

  Supported features:

    ** HPACK header compression
    ** stream multiplexing
    ** flow control
    ** response push (client and server)
    ** message trailers
    ** expect-continue handshake
    ** connection validation (ping)
    ** TLS 1.2 features

   Unsupported features:

    ** application-layer protocol negotiation (ALPN)
    ** padding of outgoing frames
    ** stream priority
    ** plain connection HTTP/1.1 upgrade
    ** CONNECT method
    ** TLS renegotiation and compression cannot be disabled with Java

* Improved conformance to requirements and recommendations of the latest
HTTP/1.1 protocol specification (RFC 7230, RFC 7231)

* New asynchronous HTTP transport APIs consistent for both HTTP/1.1 and
HTTP/2 transport.

* Improved HTTP/1.1 and HTTP/2 requester and server implementations.

* Redesigned connection pool implementation with reduced pool lock

* Support for HTTP/1.1 protocol switch / upgrade.

* Package name space changed to 'org.apache.hc.core5'

* Maven group id changed to 'org.apache.httpcomponents.core5' 

HttpCore 5.0 releases can be co-located with earlier versions.

Please note that as of 5.0 HttpCore requires Java 1.7 or newer.

Please note that at this point 5.0 APIs are considered API experimental
and unstable and are expected to change in the coming releases without
providing a migration path.
