Mon Nov 6 1995 Gisle Aas <firstname.lastname@example.org> o Release 5b6 o Installation should work better for those that still runs perl4 as 'perl'. The mirror script is not installed by default. o LWP::Socket::_getaddress() Numerical IP adresses did not work. o LWP::Socket::pushback() did not work. This also avoids the bad pp_select() core dump from perl. o LWP::IO now also selects on socket exceptions. o HTML::Parse: Ignore <!DOCTYPE ...> regardless for case. Some bad insertElement() calls made infinite loops. o The uri.t test works better for places where /tmp is a sym-link. Sat Sep 16 1995 Gisle Aas <email@example.com> o Release 5b5 o newlocal URI::URL does not put "//localhost" into the URLs any longer. o The request program: New -o option to reformat the HTML code New -C option to provide credentials on the command line. The -b option never worked. o LWP::Protocol::file now returns redirect for access to directories where the trailing slash is missing. Thu Sep 14 1995 Gisle Aas <firstname.lastname@example.org> o Speedups and bug fixes in the HTML parser. The parser now understands some more depreciated tags (like <xmp> and <listing>). o HTML::Elements are now stingified using perl overloading. The interface to the traverse() callback has changed. o Implemented HTML formatters for plain text and Postscript. o Added lib/Font stuff to support the Postscript formatter. o Inspired by Tim Bunce, I implemented the HTML::AsSubs module. Don't know if it is really useful. o The local/get test does not use /etc/passwd any more. Thu Sep 7 1995 Gisle Aas <email@example.com> o Changed package name to libwww-perl-5xx o Made LWP::Protocol::ftp actually transfer data o Implemented methods for LWP::Socket to act as a server: bind(), listen(), accept(), getsockname(), host(), port() Wed Sep 6 1995 Gisle Aas <firstname.lastname@example.org> o Release 0.04 o Implemented modules to parse HTML. Mon Sep 4 1995 Gisle Aas <email@example.com> o Implemented Mail::Cap which will become part of the MailTools package. o Moved Base64 to MIME::Base64. Reimplemented MIME::Base64 by using [un]pack("u",...) Implemented LWP::MIME::QuotedPrint for completness sake. Routine names has changed as suggested by Tim Bunce. o LWP::MediaType reads default types from media.types file. guessMediaType() now also returns encodings. New function mediaSuffix() o Pass $url to $ua->getBasicCredentials(). This also fixes security hole with the old implementation of getBasicCredentials(). o LWP::Protocol::file now sets Content-Encoding headers o Allow request content to be provided by a callback routine. o Fix bug that prevented response callback to work. The first parameter (data) is no longer a reference, because $_ is already a reference. Don't callback unless successful response. Callbacks during redirects was confusing. o URI::URL. Remove port from netloc if it is the default port. Don't use anything, just require. o HTTP::Message->addContent() does not need a reference parameter. o LWP::Socket->open() has been renamed top LWP::Socket->connect() LWP::Socket->close has gone. Implemented new method LWP::Socket->read() that returns as fast as it has some data to offer. Implemented LWP::Socket->pushback(). o Does not die in LWP::UserAgent->request() o LWP::Socket now use LWP::IO for low level IO o Implemented LWP::TkIO as a replacement module for LWP::IO when using Tk. Thu Aug 17 1995 Gisle Aas <firstname.lastname@example.org> o $ua->redirectOK() for checking redirects o reorganized tests in the "t" directory. Fri Aug 11 1995 Gisle Aas <email@example.com> o Release 0.03 o Included RobotRules.pm from Martijn Koster Thu Aug 10 1995 Gisle Aas <firstname.lastname@example.org> o New module URI::Escape (URI::URL use this module for default escaping) that provide the uri_escape() and uri_unescape() functions. o Setting $url->scheme now changes the class of the object. o Made $httpurl->user() and $httpurl->password() illegal. Likewise for other URL schemes. Wed Aug 9 1995 Gisle Aas <email@example.com> o Reorganisation as discussed on <firstname.lastname@example.org> LWP::Date --> HTTP::Date LWP::MIMEheader --> HTTP::Headers LWP::StatusCode --> HTTP::Status LWP::Message --> HTTP::Message LWP::Request --> HTTP::Request LWP::Response --> HTTP::Response LWP::MIMEtypes --> LWP::MediaTypes o HTTP::Date parses ctime format with missing timezone as suggested by Roy Fielding <email@example.com> o HTTP::Status and LWP::MediaTypes exports their functions by default. o Splitted up the URI::URL module. Schemes are implemented by separate files that are autoloaded when used. Self test moved to "t/uri.t". Mon Aug 7 1995 Gisle Aas <firstname.lastname@example.org> o Applied patch from Marc Hedlund <email@example.com> - Update the @header_order according to the August 3rd draft. - Added Response Header fields: 'Location', 'Public', 'Retry-After', 'Server', and 'WWW-Authenticate'. - Moved 'unknown header' handling from &scan to &header. The old implementation was forcing all unknown header-words to begin with an uppercase (as it should be), but disallowed other uppercase letters. - updates the status code messages under the August 3rd HTTP/1.0 draft. '203' became 'Non-Authoritative Information', '303' became 'See Other', and a new code, '411 Authorization Refused', was added. o Can remove multiple headers with single removeHeader() call in MIMEheader. o Can assign multiple field/value pairs in header() method of MIMEheader. o A field with multiple values is printed as separate values in MIMEheader::as_string(). o LWP::Response contain new attributes: previous() and request(). These attributes are updated by the UserAgent. o Appended \n to some die statements in Socket so that line numbers are suppressed in error messages. o Made UserAgent::clone work for reference members o Check for redirect loops and multiple authorization failures by examination of the response chain. o Use "\015\012" instead of "\r\n" in protocol modules. Some systems define \r and \n differently. o request program can now handle documents that needs autorization by prompting the user for username/password. Added new -S option to print request/response chain. Tue Jul 25 1995 Gisle Aas <firstname.lastname@example.org> o Release 0.02 o Included URI::URL in the release Mon Jul 24 1995 Gisle Aas <email@example.com> o Incorporated Makemake.PL and VERSION from Andreas Koenig <firstname.lastname@example.org> As a result of this the following things have changed: - programs in "bin" are extracted from .PL-files - reintroduced "lib" - "test" has been renamed as "t" - test programs in "t" has been made Test::Harness compatible - we now have a MANIFEST file - no more need fro update_version, make-dist, lwp-install o Renamed bin/get to bin/request. Links to it are now all upper case. o Proxy support in bin/request (provided by Martijn Koster) o UserAgent can now load proxy settings from environment o LWP::Protocol::ftp is under way but not really finished Tue Jul 18 1995 Gisle Aas <email@example.com> o Implemented LWP::Protocol::gopher o Implemented LWP::Protocol::mailto o Fixed proxy typo Mon Jul 17 1995 Gisle Aas <firstname.lastname@example.org> o Made release 0.01 Mon Jul 17 1995 Gisle Aas <email@example.com> o Don't loose first line of HTTP/0.9 requests o LWP::Socket use syswrite() for writing o Added RC_* documentation to LWP::StatusCode o LWP::Date now use hash to look up month numbers o Added -f option to "get" o Untabify o Added a "TODO" list o Fixed various typos Fri Jul 14 1995 Gisle Aas <firstname.lastname@example.org> o Reorganized directories. Moved LWP.pm up. Moved file.pm and http.pm into the LWP::Protocol direcotory. Moved LWP out of the lib directory and removed lib. o Implemented the "get" and "mirror" scripts in the "bin" directory. o Implemented "install-lwp", "update_version" and "make-dist". The library version number is found in the VERSION file. o Always adds 1900 to the year in LWP::Date o In LWP::MIMEheader: Implemented clone(), removeHeader() and scan() methods. Reimplemented asString. Removed asMIME(). Moved "Good Practice" into this file, and reimplemented it. o Moved "header" and "content" into LWP::Message class. This change made LWP::Request and LWP::Response much simpler. Made clone() method actually work. o LWP::Protocol::implementor does not die if it cannot load package. o Moved UserAgent convenience methods into LWP::Simple. Made LWP::Simple export LWP::StatusCode symbols and functions. o Implemented $ua->isProtocolSupported($scheme) method. o Nicer directory listing in LWP::Protocol::file.pm o Rely on URI::URL 3.00 behaviour for $url->full_path o Library version number now in LWP.pm. You should be able to say "use LWP 1.0;" if you need at least this version. o Various cleanups and arranging layout as I like it. Use fooBar-style (as opposed to foo_bar stype) everywhere. This means that as_string() now is called asString(). o Added more documentation. Wed Jun 14 1995 Gisle Aas <email@example.com> o Removed lot of rendundant & before function calls. o $this --> $self o &collector passes content as a reference, don't want to copy so much o parameterlist to collect callback has been rearranged o Response::addContent gets a reference to the data o Added some callback documentation to UserAgent.pm o Protocol::file now uses the collector o Introduced LWP::Simple Sun Jun 11 1995 Martijn Koster <firstname.lastname@example.org> o Added basic authentication support o Added mirroring of single documents o Change Protocol construction from whacky URL.pm (constructor returns subclass) to more normal C++'ish way. Wed June 7 1995 Martijn Koster <email@example.com> o Minor cleanups from printed code inspection Wed May 24 1995 Martijn Koster <firstname.lastname@example.org> o Added redirection resolution o Added optional autoloading of protocols Tue May 23 1995 Martijn Koster <email@example.com> o Separated socket stuff into separate module o Added HTTP proxy support o Made alarm handling optional o Added a LWP::Message for completeness sake o Added LWP::MemberMixin to reduce code duplication o Cosmetic changes to LWP::Date o Renamed LWP::Error to LWP::StatusCode o Renamed LWP::MIME to LWP::MIMEtype o Changed the tests to cope with all this It's getting there... Mon May 22 1995 Martijn Koster <firstname.lastname@example.org> o Changed the socket reading to use sysread. This will have to go into a module of its own. Thu 18 May 1995 Martijn Koster <email@example.com> o Mentioned on libwww-perl that I had changed the classes around lots.
