o SIGSEGV when disconnecting on a transfer on a re-used handle when the
host name didn't resolve
o stack overwrite on 64bit Windows in the chunked decoding department
o HTTP responses on persistent connections without Content-Length nor chunked
encoding are now considered to be without response body
o Content-Range: header parsing improved
o CPU 100% load when HTTP upload connection broke
o active FTP didn't work with multi interface
o curl_getdate() could be off one hour for TZ time zones with DST, on windows
o CURLOPT_MAXCONNECTS set to zero caused libcurl to SIGSEGV
o rate limiting works better
o getting FTP response code errors when using the multi-interface caused
libcurl to leak memory
o no more SIGPIPE when GnuTLS is used
o FTP downloading 2 zero byte files in a row
o using proxy and URLs without protocol prefixes
o first using a proxy and then accessing a site that 'no_proxy' matched,
would still make libcurl use the proxy...
o curl_easy_duphandle() now makes a handle that is valid for the multi
interface since the magic number is set fine
o libcurl.pc now uses Libs.private for "private" libs
now work on windows again
o improved download performance by avoiding the unconditional "double copying"

o large file downloads
o easy handle removal from multi handle before completion
o TFTP upload memory leak
