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
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
