Date: Thu, 13 Jun 2002 16:41:20 +0200 (MET DST)
Curl and libcurl 7.9.8 is out! This is mainly a bugfix release.
Get curl 7.9.8 from http://curl.haxx.se/download.html. As usual, allow some
time before the popular binary archives are up-to-date with this.
This release includes the following changes:
o curl_formadd() can do file upload parts from buffer
o libcurl can be built with specific protocols disabled
o should build nicely with modified OpenSSL 0.9.7 API
o win32 timers now use higher resolution
o CURLOPT_CAPATH was added (--capath on the command line)
o CURLOPT_NETRC now supports optional or required netrc mode
o curl_formadd() now returns a CURLFORMcode type, not a plain int.
This release includes the following bugfixes:
o name resolves can now time-out properly (on unix-like systems)
o an empty connect failure error message was filled in
o when curl_easy_perform() failed on an ftp transfer, it could leak a socket
o a curl_multi_remove_handle() crash was removed
o windows versions will no longer complain on "weak seeding"
o 64bit architectures could crash in the name resolve code
o CURLINFO_REQUEST_SIZE now works as documented
o CURLINFO_REDIRECT_TIME returns a correct time now
o getting an empty FTP file does not cause an error anymore
o curl_multi_perform() works without curl_multi_fdset()
o re-using a connection over a proxy could do bad Host: headers
o CURLOPT_POST with a "" string could lead to a crash.
o better certificate loading
o Name resolve crash on platforms without *_r() functions removed
o minor compiler problems on FreeBSD fixed
Other curl-related news since the previous public release:
o Kjetil Jacobsen released pycurl-7.9.7
o Jeffrey Pohlmeyer shipped the second release of CurlPas:
o Christophe Espern announced his Object-Pascal binding Op-Curl:
This release would not have looked like this without help, code, reports and
advice from friends like these:
Roland Zimmermann, Jean-Philippe Barrette-LaPierre, Juergen Wilke, Edin
Kadribasic, James Cone, Gustaf Hui, Cris Bailiff, Renaud Chaillat,
T. Bharath, Andreas Olsson, Jacob Meuser, Götz Babin-Ebell, Gautam Mani,
