The Apache HttpComponents project is pleased to announce the release of 
HttpComponents HttpCore 4.0-beta1. This release can be considered a
major milestone, as it marks the end of API instability in HttpCore. As
of this release the API compatibility between minor releases in 4.x
codeline will be maintained.

This release includes several major improvements such as enhanced HTTP
message parsing API and optimized parser implementations, Java 5.0
compatibility for HttpCore NIO extensions.

The focus of the development efforts will be gradually shifting towards

optimizations.

About HttpComponents Core -
The HttpCore components implement the most fundamental aspects of the
HTTP protocol. They are nonetheless sufficient to develop basic client
side and server side HTTP services with a minimal footprint and no
external dependencies. HttpCore NIO extensions can be used to build
asynchronous HTTP services based on non-blocking I/O model capable of
handling a great number of simultaneous connections with just a few I/O
threads.

HttpCore will form the foundation of the future releases of Apache HttpClient.
