Message ID:
Yet another release should now be on CPAN.  Changes this time:

    HTTP::Header: new method $h->init_header() that will only
    set the header if it is not already set.  Some shuffling
    around in the code.
    LWP::UserAgent will not override 'User-Agent', 'From'
    or 'Range' headers if they are explicitly set in the
    request passed in.
    HTML::Form tries to optimize parsing be restricting the
    tags that are reported by HTML::Parser.  Will need
    HTML::Parser v3.19_93 or better for this to actually
    have any effect.
    LWP::Protocol::ftp now deals with path parameters again.
    It means that you can append ";type=a" to ftp-URI and
    it will download the document in ASCII mode.
    If the server output multiple Location headers on a redirect,
    ignore all but the first one.
    Extract cookies failed on request URIs with empty paths.
    This was only triggered if you used URI objects directly in

Gisle Perl Programming lists via nntp and http.
