Message ID:
I just uploaded a new release to CPAN.  Might still take some time
until it reach your favorite mirror.

The changes since 5.60 are:

    LWP::Protocol::http did not invoke its _fixup_header method.
    The result was that the 'Host' header got completely wrong
    when talking through a proxy server.

    The live Google test is gone.  They blocked us.

    The guts of Net::HTTP has moved to Net::HTTP::Methods.

    Net::HTTP now has limits on the size of the header which are
    set by default.

    New module Net::HTTPS.

    Documentation tweaks.

    HTTP::Headers: The 'remove_header' method now return the values
    of the fields removed as suggested by Blair Zajac <>.
    Also a typo fix by Blair.

    HTTP::Message: The delegation via &AUTOLOAD should be slightly
    faster now.  It will install a real forwarding function the
    first time it is called for each HTTP::Headers method.

    LWP::UserAgent: Don't forward 'Cookie' headers on redirect.
    Patch by Steve A Fink <>.

    LWP::Protocol::http has been reorganized to make it simpler
    to subclass it. Other minor changes to it include:
       - Client-Warning is gone
       - Client-Request-Num renamed to Client-Response-Num
       - A 'Transfer-Encoding' header is rewritten into a
         'Client-Transfer-Encoding' header.

    LWP::Protocol::https is completely redone.

Have a good weekend!
