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
    scripts.
