Net-http-persistent 2.2 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.

=== 2.2 / 2011-10-24

  • Minor Enhancements
    • Added timeouts for idle connections which are set through
      #idle_timeout.
      The default timeout is 5 seconds. Reducing the idle timeout is
      preferred
      over setting #retry_change_requests to true if you wish to avoid the
      “too
      many connection resets” error when POSTing data.
    • Documented tunables and settings in one place in
      Net::HTTP::Persistent
