Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT] HttpComponents HttpClient 4.0.3 (GA) Released
Date Sun, 19 Sep 2010 11:35:28 GMT
HttpClient 4.0.3 is an emergency release fixing a critical regression in
the SSL connection management code. HttpClient 4.0.2 release included an
improved support for multihome hosts, which unfortunately had a bug
causing the default SSL hostname verification logic to fail. An attempt
to establish an SSL connection with HttpClient 4.0.2 can result in
javax.net.ssl.SSLException: "hostname in certificate didn't match ..."

Upstream projects are encouraged to upgrade.
