Curl and libcurl 7.9.3 is out! This is mainly a bugfix release, but there's
also a few new nifty things added. The internals have also undergone a major
restructure in preparations for future innovations.

Get curl 7.9.3 from As usual, allow some
time before the popular binary archives are up-to-date with this.

This release includes the following changes:

 o bufixed multipart formposts with non-existing files
 o builds with OpenSSL versions prior to 0.9.5 again
 o SSL session cache crashed when filled
 o improved timeouts with HTTPS
 o bugfixed the cookie engine and parser
 o HTTP code 204 is now treated properly
 o libcurl now provides the FTP response lines to the header callback
 o introduced a DNS lookup cache
 o 64bit-architecture fixes
 o bugfixed using proxy specified in an environment variable
 o made libcurl support FTP operations without any transfer
 o OpenSSL ENGINE support (read CHANGES for full details)
 o CURLFORM_CONTENTHEADER let's you add headers in form posts
 o error messages are now stored without newlines
 o -T file names get the path stripped before used remotely
 o minor compiling problems fixed for some platforms

Other curl-related news since the previous public release:

 o Kjetil Jacobsen announced verion 0.4.5 of the Python interface:

 o Dan Wood announced version 1.2 of the Cocoa interface:

 o Cris Bailiff published version 1.1.9 of the Perl interface:

 o The curl and libcurl questionnaire. If you have any opinions, hurry up to
   fill in the questionnaire at It'll only be
   available until January 31st 2002.

I firmly believe that this is the best version of curl released so far.

This release would not have looked like this without help, code, reports and
advice from friends like these:

 Michal Bonino, Ben Greear, Marcus Webster, Götz Babin-Ebell, Björn Stenberg,
 Philip Gladstone, Sterling Hughes, SM, T. Bharath, Pete Su, Georg Horn, Cris
 Bailiff, Stoned Elipot, Bjorn Reese, Kevin Roth, Richard Archer, Andrés
 García, Saul good, Jonatan, Antonio

        Thanks! (and sorry if I forgot to mention someone)
