Release Notes: This version adds the ability to (transparently) follow redirects, as well as a function to allow callers to control the number of redirects to follow (if any). It also includes some minor portability improvements and some cleanups.
Release Notes: HTTP control structures now use RFC compliant line breaks. Support has been added for connecting to arbitrary ports. Server response values with leading 0's are now handled correctly. A timeout bug has been fixed and a memory leak plugged.
Release Notes: A buffer overflow and a memory leak have been fixed. There are portability improvements and build process checks for necessary functions. Included are a spec file for building RPM packages and an http-fetcher.m4 macro file for inclusion with autoconf. It checks for hstrerror and provides a workaround if not present.
Release Notes: A new "Host: " field in HTTP requests to accommodate some servers that require it (even with HTTP 1.0 requests); servers would previously return a 404 without the Host specified.
