'make test' builds and runs all tests we have in the project. They're

We maintain ABI and API compatibility with previous releases since 2006. Of

As said, if you upgrade your libcurl anyway, why not go all the way into a

Compatibility isn't everything. We've also fixed literally *thousands* of bugs
since 7.43.0, some of which might be of interest to you too...
