Net-http-persistent 2.5 Released

net-http-persistent version 2.5 has been released!

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

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

Net::HTTP supports persistent connections with some API methods but does
handle reconnection gracefully. Net::HTTP::Persistent supports
and retry according to RFC 2616.
