      - Fixed RT #47500 (,
            HTTP::DAV::Comms->credentials() method erroneously autovivified
            basic authentication internal values, causing wrong or undefined

  • bug fixes

      - Fixed RT #52665 (,
            Using dave or propfind() on URLs containing escaped chars (%xx) could fail,

  • bug fixes

      - Fixed RT #19616 (,

      - Fixed RT #42877 (,
        HTTP::DAV::UserAgent::credentials() has been modified to behave like
        LWP::UserAgent::credentials(), otherwise basic authentication breakages
        can occur.
      - Fixed a problem with C<-depth> argument to C<HTTP::DAV::propfind()> that
        could lead to massive performance degradation, especially when running
            C<propfind()> against large folders.
            C<-depth> was set to 1 even when passed as zero.

v0.35 (released 2008/11/03):

      - Fixed various inconsistencies in the v0.32 documentation

v0.32 (released 2008/08/24):

  • incompatibilities

     - Now HTTP::DAV requires Perl 5.6.0+ and Scalar::Util (core in 5.8.x).
  • bug fixes

     - Now HTTP::DAV objects are correctly released from memory when
       they go out of scope. Now it should be possible to use multiple instances
       of HTTP::DAV even in long-running processes.
       Was caused by circular references between HTTP::DAV and HTTP::DAV::Resource.

v0.31 (released 2002/04/13):

  • Apache 2 mod_dav support

     - Now works with mod_dav under Apache 2.
  • bug fixes

     - HTTP redirect code added in the previous release was incorrectly returning a HTTP::Response instead of a HTTP::DAV::Response
     - Fixed bug to allow https for copy and move (http:// was hardcoded).
     - Fixed strange copy/move bug for Apache2.0's mod_dav.

v0.29 (released 2001/10/31):

  • https

    https support as provided from the underlying LWP library has been tested against mod_dav and mod_ssl. Seems to work well. See INSTALLATION for more detail.

  • Digest authentication

    Requires MD5 to be installed. See INSTALLATION notes.

  • various bug fixes

  • more powerful callback support for get()

    Useful for giving progress indicators.

  • get() to filehandles and scalar references

    the get() routine now allows you to pass by reference a filehandle or scalar in which to save the contents of the GET request.

  • added namespace abbreviations in proppatch

    Thanks to Jeremy for this patch.

  • improved redirect handling in

    Thanks to Jeremy for this patch.

v0.23 (released 2001/09/07):

  • file globbing for get and put

    HTTP::DAV::get() and HTTP::DAV::put() now supports file globs. This functionality also propagates to dave. This allows you to do the following:

     dav> put /tmp/index*.html
     dav> get index[12].htm? /tmp
     ?,* and sets ([]) are supported. See the docs for details.

    HTTP::DAV now requires the Perl module File::Glob which comes bundled with perl5.6 and later.

  • bug fix in -overwrite flag in HTTP::DAV::copy/move.

v0.22 (released 2001/09/03)

Complete overhaul of API, recursive get and put, addition of dave.

  • dave -- the new command line client

    I wrote dave (the DAV Explorer) because I needed an end-user application that allowed me to "feel" how well the HTTP::DAV API was performing. dave is quite similar to Joe Orton's C-based DAV client called cadaver (yes, imitation is the best form of flattery).

  • A new and simpler API

    This new API is accessed directly through the HTTP::DAV module and is based on the core API written in previous releases.

  • new methods

    The new API now supports, proppatch, recursive get and put.

  • A substantial core API overhaul

    Moving from v0.05 to v0.22 in one release might indicate the amount of work gone into this release.

  • A new interoperability test suite

    is now included in PerlDAV. The test suite is built on top of the standard Perl Test::Harness modules. Still in development, the test suite is highlighting interoperability problems with DAV-servers a lot quicker than before. See "the test suite & interoperability" section.

v0.05 (released 2001/07/24)

General bug fixes and addition of proppatch

 - added PROPPATCH method to HTTP::DAV::Resource, thanks to Sylvain Plancon.
 - fixed uninitialized warnings in test scripts.
 - fixed new lock bug in DAV::Lock, thanks to Ben Evans
 - fixed dumb mistake where PUT was calling get instead of put, 
   thanks to Sylvain and Ben again.
