Revision history for AnyEvent::HTTP TODO: provide lwp_request function that takes an lwp http requets and returns a http response. TODO: set_proxy hook TODO: use proxy hook TODO: ip6 literals in url TODO: maybe read big chunks in smaller portions for chunked-encoding + on_body. TODL: on_upgrade, for 101 responses? TODO: document session vs. sessionid correctly. 2.21 Mon Jun 9 01:35:54 CEST 2014 - correctly keep body when redirecting POSTs, instead of deleting them. 2.2 Mon Jun 9 01:31:46 CEST 2014 - connection header was malformed (patch by Raphael Geissert). - add lots of known idempotent methods from httpbis. - implement relative location headers (rfc 7231), with fallback on URI. - add support for status code 308 from rfc 7238. - recommend URI. 2.15 Wed Nov 14 23:22:07 CET 2012 - use the recurse parameter to also limit the number of retries to be done, avodiing endless loops with broken servers, as reported by Carl Chambers. 2.14 Sun Apr 22 14:57:51 CEST 2012 - Time::Local::timegm croaks on out-of-range values. Don't let this disturb AnyEvent::HTTP (reported by: tell me, I forgot...). 2.13 Wed Jul 27 17:53:58 CEST 2011 - garbled chunked responses caused AnyEvent::HTTP to malfunction (patch by Dmitri Melikyan). - fix GET => HEAD in one case in the documentation (James Bromberger). 2.12 Tue Jun 14 07:22:54 CEST 2011 - fix a possible 'Can't call method "destroyed"' error (which would have been reported by Carl Chambers). 2.11 Tue May 10 14:33:28 CEST 2011 - the keepalive session cache wouldn't take port and scheme into account when reusing connection - potentially causing information leaks (reported by Nick Kostirya). - bump AnyEvent dependency version (reported by Richard Harris). 2.1 Thu Feb 24 13:11:51 CET 2011 - the keepalive and persistent parameters were actually named differently in the code - they now work as documented. - fix a bug where callbacks would sometimes never be called when the request timeout is near or below the persistent connection timeout (testcase by Cindy Wang). - destroying the guard would have no effect when a request was recursing or being retired. 2.04 Sat Feb 19 07:45:24 CET 2011 - "proxy => undef" now overrides any global proxy when specified. - require scheme in urls, also use a stricter match to match urls, leading or trailing garbage is no longer tolerated. - EXPERIMENTAL: allow '=' in cookie values. 2.03 Tue Jan 18 18:49:35 CET 2011 - dummy reupload, file gone from cpan somehow. 2.02 Wed Jan 12 04:29:37 CET 2011 - do not lowercase cookie names, only parameter names. 2.01 Tue Jan 11 07:38:15 CET 2011 - add missing dependency on common::sense. - add a resume download example. 2.0 Tue Jan 4 09:16:56 CET 2011 - hopefully fully upgraded to HTTP/1.1. - support HTTP/1.1 persistent and HTTP/1.0 keep-alive connections. - drop https-proxy-connection support. seems unused and ill-specified. - use more differentiated 59x status codes. - properly use url (not proxy) hostname to verify server certificate. - much improved cookie implementation: - properly implement cookie expiry (for new cookies). - new function to expire cookies and sessions: cookie_jar_expire. - add special exception to parse broken expires= keys in set-cookie headers. - do not quote cookie values when not strictly necessary, to improve compatibility with broken servers. - accept and send lots of invalid cookie values exactly as they were received - this should not impact valid values. - lowercase cookie parameter names for improved compatibility. - support the max-age cookie parameter, overrides expires. - support cookie dates (and a few others) in parse_date. - properly support value-less parameters (e.g. secure, httponly). - do not send Host: header in a proxy CONNECT request. - use common::sense. - lowercase hostnames and schemes. - ignore leading zeroes in http version. - handle spaces in content-length headers more gracefully. 1.5 Fri Dec 31 04:47:08 CET 2010 - bugfix: after headers were received, if any error occured the wrong (server-sent) Status and Reason fields would be passed to the callback. - when an error occurs during transfer, preserve status/reason. - add socks4a connect example. - new "tcp_connect" parameter. - new format_date and parse_date functions. - diagnose unexpected eof as such when the length is known. - add 205 to the responses without body. 1.46 Mon Sep 6 08:29:34 CEST 2010 - some (broken) servers differentiate between empty search parts and nonexistant search parts, work around this (problem analyzed by Sergey Zasenko). - possibly increase robustness by always setting an on_error callback on the AnyEvent::Handle object (especially in case of user errors, such as nehative timeouts). - we now always follow 301/302/303 redirects and mutate POST to GET. - we now always follow 307 redirects, even for POST. - header-less responses are not parsed correctly (at a negative speed penatly :). 1.45 Wed Jun 16 21:15:26 CEST 2010 - fix a bug where the handle would go away directly after a successful connect (analyzed and patch by Maxim Dounin). - due to popular demand, introduce the Redirect pseudo response header. - document URL pseudo-header better. - explain how to implement DNS caching. 1.44 Sat Dec 5 16:36:20 CET 2009 - do not generate content-length on get requests (if the body is empty), as there are even more broken servers out there. - allow set_proxy to clear the proxy again. - set_proxy will now croak on invalid urls. - support overriding the Host-header (requested by Tatsuhiko Miyagawa). 1.43 Fri Aug 14 17:02:02 CEST 2009 - provide on_prepare callback on common request. 1.42 Wed Aug 5 18:43:01 CEST 2009 - allow suppression of auto-supplied header fields by specifying undef (requested by Mr Guest). - allow proxy scheme to be missing, as documented (reported by Mr Guest). - do not follow redirects if we do not have a location header (requested by Mr Guest). 1.41 Sat Jul 25 03:27:05 CEST 2009 - correctly parse completely headerless responses (e.g. by gatling). (analysed by Robin Redeker). 1.4 Tue Jul 7 02:14:53 CEST 2009 - http_request would not instantly clear the connection slot on tcp_connect failures, potentially leading to deadlocks. - fix a bug where a connection error is wrongly reported as EINPROGRESS. - new parameters: on_header, on_body, want_body_handle. - redirects will be followed when recurse is enabled whether or not the body dowload was successful or not. - include :port in Host header when given in the url (many sites break when it's always there, and many break if it's missing...). - pass the empty string, not undef, when there is no body but no error occured. - allow passing of tls_ctx, predefine two https security profiles. - ucfirst all error messages generated internally. - include "U" token in User-Agent. - document $AnyEvent::HTTP::MAX_PER_HOST. - allow empty field names in response headers (microsoft hits. microsoft hits. microsoft hits. you die). 1.12 Thu Jun 11 14:45:18 CEST 2009 - $scheme wasn't optional in the proxy specification (reported by Felix Antonius Wilhelm Ostmann). 1.11 Fri Nov 21 09:18:11 CET 2008 - work around a perl core bug not properly refcounting function arguments, causing "200 OK" with random body results (reported by Дмитрий Шалашов). 1.1 Thu Oct 30 04:46:27 CET 2008 - work around different behaviour of AnyEvent::Handle in TLS mode. - cleanup cookie implementation, many examples and comments were provided by Дмитрий Шалашов. - document the return values of http_* functions better. - separate multiple header values by "," not "\x00" (this does not break correctly written users of the old API). - improve Set-Cookie: parsing. - add experimental https-over-http-proxy support. - downgrade https-over-https proxy to https-over-http. - ignore spurious CR characters in headers, they show up in the weirdest of places. - ucfirst the request headers, for a slightly less weird look. - work around (some) memleaks in perl regarding qr. 1.05 Mon Sep 29 15:49:58 CEST 2008 - fix a regex when parsing cookie domains (patch by Дмитрий Шалашов). 1.04 Thu Jul 24 08:00:46 CEST 2008 - parse reason-less http status responses. - parse more forms of broken location headers. 1.03 Thu Jul 3 03:47:58 CEST 2008 - fix http_post, which was totally broken (patch by Pedro Melo). - do not recurse on POST requests, as per HTTP/1. (this might change as the recommendation isn't followed by anybody else). - implement preliminary support for 303/307 redirects. 1.02 Thu Jun 12 13:50:08 CEST 2008 - make the request URL available in the callback of http_request. - export http_post, http_head. 1.01 Fri Jun 6 14:56:37 CEST 2008 - fixed prototypes for http_* functions 1.0 Thu Jun 5 20:41:43 CEST 2008 - original version, an AnyEvent::AIO clone.
