Mechanize 2.1.1 Released

mechanize version 2.1.1 has been released!

The Mechanize library is used for automating interaction with websites.
Mechanize automatically stores and sends cookies, follows redirects,
can follow links, and submit forms. Form fields can be populated and
submitted. Mechanize also keeps track of the sites that you have
visited as
a history.

=== 2.1.1 / 2010-02-03

  • Bug fixes
  • Set missing idle_timeout default. Issue #196
  • Meta refresh URIs are now escaped (excluding %). Issue #177
  • Fix charset name extraction. Issue #180
  • A Referer URI sent on request no longer includes user information
    or fragment part.
  • Tempfiles for storing response bodies are unlinked upon creation to
    avoid
    possible lack of finalization. Issue #183
  • The default maximum history size is now 50 pages to avoid filling up
    a
    disk with tempfiles accidentally. Related to Issue #183
  • Errors in bodies with deflate and gzip responses now result in a
    Mechanize::Error instead of silently being ignored and causing future
    errors. Issue #185
  • Mechanize now raises an UnauthorizedError instead of crashing when a
    403
    response does not contain a www-authenticate header. Issue #181
  • Mechanize gives a useful exception when attempting to click buttons
    across
    pages. Issue #186
  • Added note to Mechanize#cert_store describing how to add certificates
    in
    case your system does not come with a default set. Issue #179
  • Invalid content-disposition headers are now ignored. Issue #191
  • Fix NTLM by recognizing the “Negotiation” challenge instead of
    endlessly
    looping. Issue #192
  • Allow specification of the NTLM domain through Mechanize#auth. Issue
    #193
  • Documented how to convert a Mechanize::ResponseReadError into a File
    or
    Page, along with a new method #force_parse. Issue #176
