Net-http-persistent 2.1 Released

net-http-persistent version 2.1 has been released!

Manages persistent connections using Net::HTTP plus a speed fix for Ruby
1.8.
It’s thread-safe too!

Using persistent HTTP connections can dramatically increase the speed of
HTTP.
Creating a new HTTP connection for every request involves an extra TCP
round-trip and causes TCP congestion avoidance negotiation to start
over.

Net::HTTP supports persistent connections with some API methods but does
not
handle reconnection gracefully. net-http-persistent supports
reconnection
and retry according to RFC 2616.

Changes:

=== 2.1 / 2011-09-19

  • Minor Enhancement

    • For HTTPS connections, SSL sessions are now reused avoiding the
      extra
      round trips and computations of extra SSL handshakes. If you have
      problems with SSL session reuse it can be disabled by
      Net::HTTP::Persistent#reuse_ssl_sessions
  • Bug Fixes

    • The default certificate store is now used even if #verify_mode was
      not
      set. Issue #7, Pull Request #8 by Matthew M. Boedicker
