Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT] HttpComponents HttpClient 4.0-alpha3 released
Date Tue, 26 Feb 2008 18:59:51 GMT
The HttpComponents project is pleased to announce the release of 
HttpComponents HttpClient 4.0-alpha3. This version brings another round
of API refinements and improvements in functionality. As of this release
HttpClient requires Java 5 compatible runtime environment and takes full
advantage of generics and new concurrency primitives. 

This release also introduces new default cookie policy that selects a
cookie specification depending on the format of cookies sent by the
target host. It is no longer necessary to know beforehand what kind of
HTTP cookie support the target host provides. HttpClient is now able to
pick up either a lenient or a strict cookie policy depending on the
compliance level of the target host.

Another notable improvement is a completely reworked support for
multipart entities based on Apache mime4j library.
