Http-access/2.0.8

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1

Hi all,

http-access/2.0.8 is out.

‘http-access2’ gives something like the functionality of libwww-perl
(LWP) in Ruby.

Features;

  • methods like GET/HEAD/POST via HTTP/1.1.

  • asynchronous HTTP request

  • HTTPS(SSL)

  • by contrast with net/http in standard distribution;
    o Cookies support
    o MT-safe
    o streaming POST
    o DigestAuth
    o extensible with filter interface
    o you don’t have to care HTTP/1.1 persistent connection (http-access2
    cares instead of you).

  • Not supported now
    o Cache
    o Rather advanced HTTP/1.1 usage such as Range, deflate, etc.
    (of course you can set it in header by yourself)

Hi all,

http-access/2.0.9 is out. It’s purely a bugfix version that fixes 1
regression problem about BasicAuth. Sorry for frequent releases.

‘http-access2’ gives something like the functionality of libwww-perl
(LWP) in Ruby.

Features;

  • methods like GET/HEAD/POST via HTTP/1.1.

  • asynchronous HTTP request

  • HTTPS(SSL)

  • by contrast with net/http in standard distribution;
    o Cookies support
    o MT-safe
    o streaming POST
    o DigestAuth
    o extensible with filter interface
    o you don’t have to care HTTP/1.1 persistent connection (http-access2
    cares instead of you).

  • Not supported now
    o Cache
    o Rather advanced HTTP/1.1 usage such as Range, deflate, etc.
    (of course you can set it in header by yourself)

changes:
fix the BasicAuth? regression problem in 2.0.8. A server may return
“BASIC” as an authenticate scheme label instead of “Basic”. It must
be treated as a case-insensitive token according to RFC2617 section
1.2. Thanks to mwedeme for contributing the patch.

Hi all,

httpclient/2.1.0 is out. The program/project renamed from
‘http-access2’ to ‘httpclient’. Now program name, gem name, and module
namespace are the same: ‘httpclient’.

‘httpclient’ gives something like the functionality of libwww-perl (LWP)
in Ruby. ‘httpclient’ formerly known as ‘http-access2’.

Features;

  • methods like GET/HEAD/POST/* via HTTP/1.1.

  • HTTPS(SSL), Cookies, proxy, authentication, etc.

  • asynchronous HTTP request

  • by contrast with net/http in standard distribution;
    o Cookies support
    o MT-safe
    o streaming POST
    o DigestAuth?
    o extensible with filter interface
    o you don’t have to care HTTP/1.1 persistent connection (httpclient
    cares instead of you).

  • Not supported now
    o Cache
    o Rather advanced HTTP/1.1 usage such as Range, deflate, etc.
    (of course you can set it in header by yourself)

changes:

  • There’s compatibility layer included so existing programs for
    http-access2 which uses HTTPAccess2::Client should work with
    httpclient/2.1.0 correctly.

  • install.rb did not install cacerts.p7s. Thanks to knu.

  • now HTTPClient loads http_proxy/HTTP_PROXY and no_proxy/NO_PROXY
    environment variable at initialization time. bear in mind that it
    doesn’t load http_proxy/HTTP_PROXY when a library is considered to be
    running under CGI environment (checked by ENVREQUEST_METHOD
    existence). cgi_http_proxy/CGI_HTTP_PROXY is loaded instead.

Hi all,

httpclient/2.1.2 is out. The release for negotiate auth support + a
workaround for Ubuntu + SonicWALL timeout problem.

‘httpclient’ gives something like the functionality of libwww-perl (LWP)
in Ruby. ‘httpclient’ formerly known as ‘http-access2’.

Features:

  • methods like GET/HEAD/POST/* via HTTP/1.1.

  • HTTPS(SSL), Cookies, proxy, authentication(Digest, NTLM, Basic), etc.

  • asynchronous HTTP request

  • by contrast with net/http in standard distribution;
    o Cookies support
    o MT-safe
    o streaming POST
    o Digest auth
    o NTLM auth for WWW-Authenticate
    o extensible with filter interface
    o you don’t have to care HTTP/1.1 persistent connection
    (httpclient cares instead of you)

  • Not supported now
    o Cache
    o Rather advanced HTTP/1.1 usage such as Range, deflate, etc.
    (of course you can set it in header by yourself

Changes in 2.1.1 and 2.1.2:

  • implemented Negotiate authentication with a support from exterior
    modules. ‘rubyntlm’ module is required for Negotiate auth with IIS.
    ‘win32/sspi’ module is required for Negotiate auth with ISA. (#23)
  • a workaround for Ubuntu + SonicWALL timeout problem. try to send HTTP
    request in one chunk. (#171)
  • create new self-signing dist-cert which has serial number 0x01 and
    embed it in httpclient.rb. (#169)
  • update cacert.p7s. certificates are imported from cacerts in JRE 6
    Update 2. 1 expired CA certificate
    ‘C=US, O=GTE Corporation, CN=GTE CyberTrust Root’ is removed.
  • [BUG] Reason-Phrase of HTTP response status line can be empty
    according to RFC2616. (#170)
  • [BUG] domain string match for cookies should be case insensitive.
    thanks to Brian for the patch. (#163)
  • [BUG] before calling SSLSocket#post_connection_check, check if
    RUBY_VERSION > “1.8.4” for CN based wildcard certificate. when
    RUBY_VERSION <= “1.8.4”, it fallbacks to the post_connection_check
    method in HTTPClient so httpclient should run on 1.8.4 fine as
    before. (#164)
  • added HTTPClient#test_loopback_http_response which accepts test
    loopback response which contains HTTP header. (#165)
