It appears I forgot to run 'make test' on LWP after the update.
Because of this you will now find 5.50 on CPAN.  And this is actually
less that two weeks after the previous release. Perhaps 2001 will be a
busy LWP year after all? :-)

Changes since 5.49 are:

    Fix for test cases that failed because of URI-1.10 now encode
    space as '+' instead of '%20. Patch by Christian Gilmore

    Makefile.PL: Require URI-1.10.

    HTTP::Daemon now accepts any non-space character as method name
    on the request line.  It used to fail on methods like "M-POST"
    because it only allowed \w-chars.

    HTTP::Date now allow fractional seconds in ISO date formats.
    Based on patch from Mark D. Anderson <>

    HTTP::Request::Common will now calculate Content-length
    even if $DYNAMIC_FILE_UPLOAD is set.  Patch provided by
    Lindley, Lee T <>.
