Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT] HttpComponents HttpAsyncClient 4.1 GA Released
Date Thu, 23 Apr 2015 19:50:33 GMT
The Apache HttpComponents project is pleased to announce 4.1 GA release
of HttpComponents HttpAsyncClient.

This is the first stable (GA) release of HttpAsyncClient 4.1. Notable
features and enhancements included in 4.1 series are:

* Support for pipelined request execution 

* Support for the latest HTTP state management specification (RFC 6265).
Please note that the old cookie policy is still used by default for
compatibility reasons. RFC 6265 compliant cookie policies need to be
explicitly configured by the user. Please also note that as of next
feature release support for Netscape draft, RFC 2109 and RFC 2965 cookie
policies will be deprecated and disabled by default. It is recommended
to use RFC 6265 compliant policies for new applications unless
compatibility with RFC 2109 and RFC 2965 is required and to migrate
existing applications to the default cookie policy.

* Enhanced, redesigned and rewritten default SSL hostname verifier with
improved RFC 2818 compliance

* Default SSL hostname verifier and default cookie policy now validate
certificate identity and cookie domain of origin against the public
suffix list maintained by Mozilla.org

* Authentication cache thread-safety: authentication cache used by
HttpClient is now thread-safe and can be shared by multiple threads in
order to re-use authentication state for subsequent requests

About Apache HttpAsyncClient

Although the java.net package provides basic functionality for accessing
resources via HTTP, it doesn't provide the full flexibility or
functionality needed by many applications. HttpAsyncClient seeks to fill
this void by providing an efficient, up-to-date, and feature-rich
package with an event-driven programming interface based on a
non-blocking I/O model.
