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.
HTTP::Headers: The 'remove_header' method now return the values
of the fields removed as suggested by Blair Zajac <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
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 <email@example.com>.
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
LWP::Protocol::https is completely redone.
Have a good weekend!
