Changes for version 0.077 - 2021-07-22 (TRIAL RELEASE)

  • ADDED
    • Added a `patch` helper method for the HTTP `PATCH` verb.
    • If the REQUEST_METHOD environment variable is set, then CGI_HTTP_PROXY replaces HTTP_PROXY.
  • FIXED
    • Unsupported scheme errors early without giving an uninitialized value warning first.
    • Sends Content-Length: 0 on empty body PUT/POST. This is not in the spec, but some servers require this.
    • Allows optional status line reason, as clarified in RFC 7230.
    • Ignore SIGPIPE on reads as well as writes, as IO::Socket::SSL says that SSL reads can also send writes as a side effect.
    • Check if a server has closed a connection before preserving it for reuse.
  • DOCS
    • Clarified that exceptions/errors result in 599 status codes.
  • PREREQS
    • Optional IO::Socket::IP prereq must be at least version 0.32 to be used. This ensures correct timeout support.
