Message ID:
A new release should now be on CPAN.  The changes in this round were:

    HTTP::Negotiate: Deal with parameter names in a case
    insensitive way.  Put a little weight on the order of features
    in the Accept headers.

    LWP::UserAgent: make sure that the 'request' attribute is
    always set on the returned response.

    LWP::Protocol::http will now allow certain bad headers
    in the responses it reads.  The bad headers end up in the
    header 'Client-Junk'.

    Net::HTTP new options to the 'read_response_headers'
    method.  The option 'laxed' will make it ignore bad header
    lines.  The option 'junk_out' can be used to pass in an
    array reference.  Junk header lines are pushed onto it.

    Net::HTTP::Methods: fixed the internal zlib_ok() to also
    return the correct value the first time.

    LWP::Protocol::http: Ensure that we don't read until
    select has said it is ok since we have put the socket
    in non-blocking mode.  Previously this could happen if
    you set the 'timeout' attribute of the user agent to 0.

    LWP::Authen::Digest now use Digest::MD5 instead of MD5.

    Some adjustments to Makefile.PL to figure out if
    Compress::Zlib is available and adjust the test suite
