Version 7.16.3 (25 June 2007)
Daniel S (23 June 2007)
- As reported by "Tro" in and, libcurl didn't properly do
no-body requests on FTP files on re-used connections properly, or at least
it didn't provide the info back in the header callback properly in the
subsequent requests.
Daniel S (21 June 2007)
- Gerrit Bruchhäuser pointed out a warning that the Intel(R) Thread Checker
tool reports and it was indeed a legitimate one and it is one fixed. It was
a use of a share without doing the proper locking first.
Daniel S (20 June 2007)
- Adam Piggott filed bug report #1740263
( Adam discovered that when
getting a large amount of URLs with curl, they were fetched slower and
slower... which turned out to be because the --libcurl data collecting which
wrongly always was enabled, but no longer is...
Daniel S (18 June 2007)
- Robson Braga Araujo filed bug report #1739100
( that mentioned that libcurl
could not actually list the contents of the root directory of a given FTP
server if the login directory isn't root. I fixed the problem and added
three test cases (one is disabled for now since I identified KNOWN_BUGS #44,
we cannot use --ftp-method nocwd and list ftp directories).
Daniel S (14 June 2007)
- Shmulik Regev:
I've encountered (and hopefully fixed) a problem involving proxy CONNECT
requests and easy handles state management. The problem isn't simple to
reproduce since it depends on socket state. It only manifests itself when
working with non-blocking sockets.
Here is the scenario:
1. in multi_runsingle the easy handle is in the CURLM_STATE_WAITCONNECT and
calls Curl_protocol_connect
2. in Curl_proxyCONNECT, line 1247, if the socket isn't ready the function
returns and conn->bits.tunnel_connecting is TRUE
3. when the call to Curl_protocol_connect returns the protocol_connect flag
is false and the easy state is changed to CURLM_STATE_PROTOCONNECT which
isn't correct if a proxy is used. Rather CURLM_STATE_WAITPROXYCONNECT
should be used.
I discovered this while performing an HTTPS request through a proxy (squid)
on my local network. The problem caused openssl to fail as it read the proxy
response to the CONNECT call ('HTTP/1.0 Established') rather than the SSL
handshake (the exact openssl error was 'wrong ssl version' but this isn't
very important)
- Dave Vasilevsky filed bug report #1736875
( almost simultanouesly as Dan
Fandrich mentioned a related build problem on the libcurl mailing list: Both problems had the same
reason: the definitions of the POLL* defines and the pollfd struct in the
libcurl code was depending on HAVE_POLL instead of HAVE_SYS_POLL_H.
Daniel S (13 June 2007)
- Tom Regner provided a patch and worked together with James Housley, so now
CURLOPT_FTP_CREATE_MISSING_DIRS works for SFTP connections as well as FTP
- Rich Rauenzahn filed bug report #1733119
( and we collaborated on the
fix. The problem is that for 64bit HPUX builds, several socket-related
functions would still assume int (32 bit) arguments and not socklen_t (64
bit) ones.
Daniel S (12 June 2007)
- James Housley brought his revamped SSH code that is state-machine driven to
really take advantage of the now totally non-blocking libssh2 (in CVS).
Dan F (8 June 2007)
- Incorporated Daniel Black's test706 and test707 SOCKS test cases.
- Fixed a few problems when starting the SOCKS server.
- Reverted some recent changes to that weren't compatible with
perl 5.0.
- Fixed the test harness so that it actually kills the ssh being used as
the SOCKS server.
Daniel S (6 June 2007)
- -s/--silent can now be used to toggle off the silence again if used a second
Daniel S (5 June 2007)
- Added Daniel Black's work that adds the first few SOCKS test cases. I also
fixed two minor SOCKS problems to make the test cases run fine.
Daniel S (31 May 2007)
- Feng Tu made (lib)curl support "upload" resuming work for file:// URLs.
Daniel S (30 May 2007)
- I modified the 10-at-a-time.c example to transfer 500 downloads in parallel
with a c-ares enabled build only to find that it crashed miserably, and this
was due to some select()isms left in the code. This was due to API
restrictions in c-ares 1.3.x, but with the upcoming c-ares 1.4.0 this is no
longer the case so now libcurl runs much better with c-ares and the multi
interface with > 1024 file descriptors in use.
Extra note: starting now we require c-ares 1.4.0 for asynchronous name
- Added CURLMOPT_MAXCONNECTS which is a curl_multi_setopt() option for setting
the maximum size of the connection cache maximum size of the multi handle.
Daniel S (27 May 2007)
- When working with a problem Stefan Becker had, I found an off-by-one buffer
overwrite in Curl_select(). While fixing it, I also improved its performance
somewhat by changing calloc to malloc and breaking out of a loop earlier
(when possible).
Daniel S (25 May 2007)
- Rob Crittenden fixed bug #1705802
(, which was filed by Daniel
Black identifying several FTP-SSL test cases fail when we build libcurl with
NSS for TLS/SSL. Listed as #42 in KNOWN_BUGS.
Daniel S (24 May 2007)
- Song Ma filed bug report #1724016
( noticing that downloading
glob-ranges for TFTP was broken in CVS. Fixed now.
- 'mytx' in bug report #1723194 (
pointed out that the warnf() function in the curl tool didn't properly deal
with the cases when excessively long words were used in the string to chop
Daniel S (22 May 2007)
- Andre Guibert de Bruet fixed a memory leak in the function that verifies the
peer's name in the SSL certificate when built for OpenSSL. The leak happens
for libcurls with CURL_DOES_CONVERSIONS enabled that fail to convert the CN
name from UTF8. He also fixed a leak when PKCS #12 parsing failed.
Daniel S (18 May 2007)
- Feng Tu reported that curl -w did wrong on TFTP transfers in bug report
#1715394 (, and the
transfer-related info "variables" were indeed overwritten with zeroes
wrongly and have now been adjusted. The upload size still isn't accurate.
Daniel S (17 May 2007)
- Feng Tu pointed out a division by zero error in the TFTP connect timeout
code for timeouts less than five seconds, and also provided a fix for it.
Bug report #1715392 (
Dan F (16 May 2007)
- Added support for compiling under Minix 3.1.3 using ACK.
Dan F (14 May 2007)
- Added SFTP directory listing test case 613.
- Added support for quote commands before a transfer using SFTP and test
case 614.
- Changed the post-quote commands to occur after the transferred file is
- Allow SFTP quote commands chmod, chown, chgrp to set a value of 0.
Dan F (9 May 2007)
- Kristian Gunstone fixed a problem where overwriting an uploaded file with
sftp didn't truncate it first, which would corrupt the file if the new
file was shorter than the old.
Dan F (8 May 2007)
- Added FTPS test cases 406 and 407
Daniel S (8 May 2007)
because I just made SCP uploads return this value if the file size of
the upload file isn't given with CURLOPT_INFILESIZE*. Docs updated to
reflect this news, and a define for the old name was added to the public
header file.
Daniel S (7 May 2007)
- James Bursa fixed a bug in the multi handle code that made the connection
cache grow a bit too much, beyond the normal 4 * easy_handles.
Daniel S (2 May 2007)
- Anders Gustafsson remarked that requiring CURLOPT_HTTP_VERSION set to 1.0
when CURLOPT_HTTP200ALIASES is used to avoid the problem mentioned below is
not very nice if the client wants to be able to use _either_ a HTTP 1.1
server or one within the aliases list... so starting now, libcurl will
simply consider 200-alias matches the to be HTTP 1.0 compliant.
- Tobias Rundström reported a problem they experienced with xmms2 and recent
libcurls, which turned out to be the 25-nov-2006 change which treats HTTP
responses without Content-Length or chunked encoding as without bodies. We
now added the conditional that the above mentioned response is only without
body if the response is HTTP 1.1.
- Jeff Pohlmeyer improved the hiperfifo.c example to use the
- Set the timeout for easy handles to expire really soon after addition or
when CURLM_CALL_MULTI_PERFORM is returned from curl_multi_socket*/perform,
to make applications using only curl_multi_socket() to properly function
when adding easy handles "on the fly". Bug report and test app provided by
Michael Wallner.
Dan F (30 April 2007)
- Improved the test harness to allow running test servers on other than
the default port numbers, allowing more than one test suite to run
simultaneously on the same host.
Daniel S (28 April 2007)
- Peter O'Gorman fixed libcurl to not init GnuTLS as early as we did before,
since it then inits libgcrypt and libgcrypt is being evil and EXITS the
application if it fails to get a fine random seed. That's really not a nice
thing to do by a library.
- Frank Hempel fixed a curl_easy_duphandle() crash on a handle that had
been removed from a multi handle, and then fixed another flaw that prevented
curl_easy_duphandle() to work even after the first fix - the handle was
still marked as using the multi interface.
Daniel S (26 April 2007)
- Peter O'Gorman found a problem with SCP downloads when the downloaded file
was 16385 bytes (16K+1) and it turned out we didn't properly always "suck
out" all data from libssh2. The effect being that libcurl would hang on the
socket waiting for data when libssh2 had in fact already read it all...
Dan F (25 April 2007)
- Added support in for "!n" test numbers to disable individual
tests. Changed -t to only keep log files around when -k is specified,
to have the same behaviour as without -t.
Daniel S (25 April 2007)
- Sonia Subramanian brought our attention to a problem that happens if you set
the CURLOPT_RESUME_FROM or CURLOPT_RANGE options and an existing connection
in the connection cache is closed to make room for the new one when you call
curl_easy_perform(). It would then wrongly free range-related data in the
connection close funtion.
Yang Tse (25 April 2007)
- Steve Little fixed compilation on VMS 64-bit mode
Daniel S (24 April 2007)
- Robert Iakobashvili made the 'master_buffer' get allocated first once it is
can/will be used as it then makes the common cases save 16KB of data for each
easy handle that isn't used for pipelining.
Dan F (23 April 2007)
- Added <postcheck> support to the test harness.
- Added tests 610-612 to test more SFTP post-quote commands.
Daniel S (22 April 2007)
- Song Ma's warning if -r/--range is given with a "bad" range, also noted in
the man page now.
- Daniel Black filed bug #1705177
( where --without-ssl
--with-gnutl outputs a warning about SSL not being enabled even though GnuTLS
was found and used.
Daniel S (21 April 2007)
- Daniel Black filed bug #1704675
( identifying a double-free
problem in the SSL-dealing layer, telling GnuTLS to free NULL credentials on
closedown after a failure and a bad #ifdef for NSS when closing down SSL.
Yang Tse (20 April 2007)
- Save one call to curlx_tvnow(), which calls gettimeofday(), in each of
Curl_socket_ready(), Curl_poll() and Curl_select() when these are called
with a zero timeout or a timeout value indicating a blocking call should
be performed.
Daniel S (18 April 2007)
- James Housley made SFTP uploads use libssh2's non-blocking API
- Prevent the internal progress meter from updating more frequently than once
per second.
Dan F (17 April 2007)
- Added test cases 296, 297 and 298 to test --ftp-method handling
Daniel S (16 April 2007)
- Robert Iakobashvil added curl_multi_socket_action() to libcurl, which is a
function that deprecates the curl_multi_socket() function. Using the new
function the application tell libcurl what action that was found in the
socket that it passes in. This gives a significant performance boost as it
allows libcurl to avoid a call to poll()/select() for every call to
I added a define in the public curl/multi.h header file that will make your
existing application automatically use curl_multi_socket_action() instead of
curl_multi_socket() when you recompile. But of course you'll get better
performance if you adjust your code manually and actually pass in the
correct action bitmask to this function.
Daniel S (14 April 2007)
- Jay Austin added "DH PARAMETERS" to the stunnel.pem certificate for the test
suite to make stunnel run better in some (most?) environments.
Dan F (13 April 2007)
- Added test cases 294 and 295 to test --ftp-account handling
- Improved handling of out of memory in ftp.
Yang Tse (13 April 2007)
- Fix test case 534 which started to fail 2007-04-13 due to the existance
of a new host on the net with the same silly domain the test was using
for a host which was supposed not to exist.
Daniel S (12 April 2007)
- Song Ma found a memory leak in the if2ip code if you pass in an interface
name longer than the name field of the ifreq struct (typically 6 bytes), as
then it wouldn't close the used dummy socket. Bug #1698974
Version 7.16.2 (11 April 2007)
Yang Tse (10 April 2007)
- Ravi Pratap provided some fixes for HTTP pipelining
- configure script will ignore --enable-sspi option for non-native Windows.
Daniel S (9 April 2007)
- Nick Zitzmann did ssh.c cleanups
Daniel S (3 April 2007)
- Rob Jones fixed better #ifdef'ing for a bunch of #include lines.
Daniel S (2 April 2007)
- Nick Zitzmann made the CURLOPT_POSTQUOTE option work for SFTP as well. The
accepted commands are as follows:
chgrp (gid) (path)
Changes the group ID of the file or directory at (path) to (gid). (gid)
must be a number.
chmod (perms) (path)
Changes the permissions of the file or directory at (path) to
(perms). (perms) must be a number in the format used by the chmod Unix
chown (uid) (path)
Changes the user ID of the file or directory at (path) to (uid). (uid)
must be a number.
ln (source) (dest)
Creates a symbolic link at (dest) that points to the file located at
mkdir (path)
Creates a new directory at (path).
rename (source) (dest)
Moves the file or directory at (source) to (dest).
rm (path)
Deletes the file located at (path).
rmdir (path)
Deletes the directory located at (path). This command will raise an error
if the directory is not empty.
symlink (source) (dest)
Same as ln.
Daniel S (1 April 2007)
- Robert Iakobashvili made curl_multi_remove_handle() a lot faster when many
easy handles are added to a multi handle, by avoiding the looping over all
the handles to find which one to remove.
- Matt Kraai provided a patch that makes curl build on QNX 6 fine again.
Daniel S (31 March 2007)
- Fixed several minor issues detected by the scanner.
- "Pixel" fixed a problem that appeared when you used -f with user+password
embedded in the URL.
Dan F (29 March 2007)
- Don't tear down the ftp connection if the maximum filesize was exceeded
and added tests 290 and 291 to check.
- Added ftps upload and SSL required tests 401 and 402.
- Send an EOF message before closing an SCP channel, as recommended by
RFC4254. Enable libssh2 tracing when ssh debugging is turned on.
Yang Tse (27 March 2007)
- Internal function Curl_select() renamed to Curl_socket_ready()
New Internal wrapper function Curl_select() around select (2), it
uses poll() when a fine poll() is available, so now libcurl can be
built without select() support at all if a fine poll() is available.
Daniel S (25 March 2007)
- Daniel Johnson fixed multi code to traverse the easy handle list properly.
A left-over bug from the February 21 fix.
Dan F (23 March 2007)
- Added --pubkey option to curl and made --key also work for SCP/SFTP,
plus made --pass work on an SSH private key as well.
- Changed the test harness to attempt to gracefully shut down servers
before resorting to the kill -9 hammer.
- Added test harness infrastructure to support scp/sftp tests, using
OpenSSH as the server.
- Fixed a memory leak when specifying a proxy with a file: URL.
Yang Tse (20 March 2007)
- Fixed: When a signal was caught awaiting for an event using Curl_select()
or Curl_poll() with a non-zero timeout both functions would restart the
specified timeout. This could even lead to the extreme case that if a
signal arrived with a frecuency lower to the specified timeout neither
function would ever exit.
Added experimental symbol definition check CURL_ACKNOWLEDGE_EINTR in
Curl_select() and Curl_poll(). When compiled with CURL_ACKNOWLEDGE_EINTR
defined both functions will return as soon as a signal is caught. Use it
at your own risk, all calls to these functions in the library should be
revisited and checked before fully supporting this feature.
Yang Tse (19 March 2007)
- Bryan Henderson fixed the progress function so that it can get called more
frequently allowing same calling frecuency for the client progress callback.
Dan F (15 March 2007)
- Various memory leaks plugged and NULL pointer fixes made in the ssh code.
Daniel (15 March 2007)
- Nick made the curl tool accept globbing ranges that only is one number, i.e
you can now use [1-1] without curl complaining.
Daniel (10 March 2007)
- Eygene Ryabinkin:
The problem is the following: when we're calling Curl_done and it decides to
keep the connection opened ('left intact'), then the caller is not notified
that the connection was done via the NULLifying of the pointer, so some easy
handle is keeping the pointer to this connection.
Later ConnectionExists can select such connection for reuse even if we're
not pipelining: pipeLen is zero, so the (pipeLen > 0 && !canPipeline) is
false and we can reuse this connection for another easy handle. But thus the
connection will be shared between two easy handles if the handle that wants
to take the ownership is not the same as was not notified of the connection
was done in Curl_done. And when some of these easy handles will get their
connection really freed the another one will still keep the pointer.
My fix was rather trivial: I just added the NULLification to the 'else'
branch in the Curl_done. My tests with Git and ElectricFence showed no
problems both for HTTP pulling and cloning. Repository size is about 250 Mb,
so it was a considerable amount of Curl's work.
Dan F (9 March 2007)
- Updated the test harness to add a new "crypto" feature check and updated the
appropriate test case to use it. For now, this is treated the same as the
"SSL" feature because curl doesn't list it separately.
Daniel (9 March 2007)
- Robert Iakobashvili fixed CURLOPT_INTERFACE for IPv6.
- Robert A. Monat improved the maketgz and VC6/8 generating to set the correct
machine type too.
- Justin Fletcher fixed a file descriptor leak in the curl tool when trying to
upload a file it couldn't open. Bug #1676581
Dan F (9 March 2007)
- Updated the test harness to check for protocol support before running each
test, fixing KNOWN_BUGS #11.
Dan F (7 March 2007)
- Reintroduced (after a 3 year hiatus) an FTPS test case (400) into the test
harness. It is very limited as it supports only ftps:// URLs with
--ftp-ssl-control specified, which implicitly encrypts the control
channel but not the data channels. That allows stunnel to be used with
an unmodified ftp server in exactly the same way that the test https
server is set up.
Dan F (7 March 2007)
- Honour --ftp-ssl-control on ftps:// URLs to allow encrypted control and
unencrypted data connections.
Dan F (6 March 2007)
- Fixed a couple of improper pointer uses detected by valgrind in test
cases 181 & 216.
Daniel (2 March 2007)
- Robert A. Monat and Shmulik Regev helped out to fix the new */Makefile.vc8
makefiles that are included in the source release archives, generated from
the Makefile.vc6 files by the maketgz script. I also modified the root
Makefile to have a VC variable that defaults to vc6 but can be overridden to
allow it to be used for vc8 as well. Like this:
nmake VC=vc8 vc
Daniel (27 February 2007)
- Hang Kin Lau found and fixed: When I use libcurl to connect to an https
server through a proxy and have the remote https server port set using the
CURLOPT_PORT option, protocol gets reset to http from https after the first
User defined URL was modified internally by libcurl and subsequent reuse of
the easy handle may lead to connection using a different protocol (if not
originally http).
I found that libcurl hardcoded the protocol to "http" when it tries to
regenerate the URL if CURLOPT_PORT is set. I tried to fix the problem as
follows and it's working fine so far
Daniel (25 February 2007)
- Adam D. Moss made the HTTP CONNECT procedure less blocking when used from
the multi interface. Note that it still does a part of the connection in a
blocking manner.
Daniel (23 February 2007)
- Added warning outputs if the command line uses more than one of the options
-v, --trace and --trace-ascii, since it could really confuse the user.
Clarified this fact in the man page.
Daniel (21 February 2007)
- Ravi Pratap provided work on libcurl making pipelining more robust and
fixing some bugs:
o Don't mix GET and POST requests in a pipeline
o Fix the order in which requests are dispatched from the pipeline
o Fixed several curl bugs with pipelining when the server is returning
chunked encoding:
* Added states to chunked parsing for final CRLF
* Rewind buffer after parsing chunk with data remaining
* Moved chunked header initializing to a spot just before receiving
Daniel (20 February 2007)
- Linus Nielsen Feltzing changed the CURLOPT_FTP_SSL_CCC option to handle
active and passive CCC shutdown and added the --ftp-ssl-ccc-mode command
line option.
Daniel (19 February 2007)
- Ian Turner fixed the libcurl.m4 macro's support for --with-libcurl.
- Shmulik Regev found a memory leak in re-used HTTPS connections, at least
when the multi interface was used.
- Robson Braga Araujo made passive FTP transfers work with SOCKS (both 4 and
Daniel (18 February 2007)
- Jeff Pohlmeyer identified two problems: first a rather obscure problem with
the multi interface and connection re-use that could make a
curl_multi_remove_handle() ruin a pointer in another handle.
The second problem was less of an actual problem but more of minor quirk:
the re-using of connections wasn't properly checking if the connection was
marked for closure.
Daniel (16 February 2007)
- Duncan Mac-Vicar Prett and Michal Marek reported problems with resetting
CURLOPT_RANGE back to no range on an easy handle when using FTP.
Dan F (14 February 2007)
- Fixed curl-config --libs so it doesn't list unnecessary libraries (and
therefore introduce unnecessary dependencies) when it's not needed.
Also, don't bother adding a library path of /usr/lib
Daniel (13 February 2007)
- The default password for anonymous FTP connections is now changed to be
- Robert A. Monat made libcurl build fine with VC2005 - it doesn't have
gmtime_r() like the older VC versions. He also made use of some machine-
specific defines to differentiate the "OS" define.
Daniel (12 February 2007)
- Rob Crittenden added support for NSS (Network Security Service) for the
SSL/TLS layer.
This is the fourth supported library for TLS/SSL that libcurl supports!
- Shmulik Regev fixed so that the final CRLF of HTTP response headers are sent
to the debug callback.
CURLOPT_HTTP_TRANSFER_DECODING that if set to zero will disable libcurl's
internal decoding of content or transfer encoded content. This may be
preferable in cases where you use libcurl for proxy purposes or similar. The
command line tool got a --raw option to disable both at once.
- release tarballs made with maketgz will from now on have a LIBCURL_TIMESTAMP
define set to hold the exact date and time of when the tarball was built, as
a human readable string using the UTC time zone.
- Jeff Pohlmeyer fixed a flaw in curl_multi_add_handle() when adding a handle
that has an easy handle present in the "closure" list pending closure.
Daniel (6 February 2007)
- Regular file downloads wiht SFTP and SCP are now done using the non-blocking
API of libssh2, if the libssh2 headers seem to support them. This will make
SCP and SFTP much more responsive and better libcurl citizens when used with
the multi interface etc.
Daniel (5 February 2007)
- Michael Wallner added support for CURLOPT_TIMEOUT_MS and
CURLOPT_CONNECTTIMEOUT_MS that, as their names suggest, do the timeouts with
millisecond resolution. The only restriction to that is the alarm()
(sometimes) used to abort name resolves as that uses full seconds. I fixed
the FTP response timeout part of the patch.
Internally we now count and keep the timeouts in milliseconds but it also
means we multiply set timeouts with 1000. The effect of this is that no
timeout can be set to more than 2^31 milliseconds (on 32 bit systems), which
equals 24.86 days. We probably couldn't before either since the code did
*1000 on the timeout values on several places already.
Daniel (3 February 2007)
- Yang Tse fixed the cookie expiry date in several test cases that started to
fail since they used "1 feb 2007"...
- Manfred Schwarb reported that socks5 support was broken and help us pinpoint
the problem. The code now tries harder to use httproxy and proxy where
apppropriate, as not all proxies are HTTP...
Version 7.16.1 (29 January 2007)
Daniel (29 January 2007)
- Michael Wallner reported that when doing a CONNECT with a custom User-Agent
header, you got _two_ User-Agent headers in the CONNECT request...! Added
test case 287 to verify the fix.
Daniel (28 January 2007)
- curl_easy_reset() now resets the CA bundle path correctly.
- David McCreedy fixed the Curl command line tool for HTTP on non-ASCII
Daniel (25 January 2007)
- Added the --libcurl [file] option to curl. Append this option to any
ordinary curl command line, and you will get a libcurl-using source code
written to the file that does the equivalent operation of what your command
line operation does!
Dan F (24 January 2007)
- Fixed a dangling pointer problem that prevented the http_proxy environment
variable from being properly used in many cases (and caused test case 63
to fail).
Daniel (23 January 2007)
- David McCreedy did NTLM changes mainly for non-ASCII platforms:
There's a compilation error in http_ntlm.c if USE_NTLM2SESSION is NOT
defined. I noticed this while testing various configurations. Line 867 of
the current http_ntlm.c is a closing bracket for an if/else pair that only
gets compiled in if USE_NTLM2SESSION is defined. But this closing bracket
wasn't in an #ifdef so the code fails to compile unless USE_NTLM2SESSION was
defined. Lines 198 and 140 of my patch wraps that closing bracket in an
I noticed several picky compiler warnings when DEBUG_ME is defined. I've
fixed them with casting. By the way, DEBUG_ME was a huge help in
understanding this code.
Hopefully the last non-ASCII conversion patch for libcurl in a while. I
changed the "NTLMSSP" literal to hex since this signature must always be in
Conversion code was strategically added where necessary. And the
Curl_base64_encode calls were changed so the binary "blobs" http_ntlm.c
creates are NOT translated on non-ASCII platforms.
Dan F (22 January 2007)
- Converted (most of) the test data files into genuine XML. A handful still
are not, due mainly to the lack of support for XML character entities
(e.g. & => &amp; ). This will make it easier to validate test files using
tools like xmllint, as well as to edit and view them using XML tools.
Daniel (16 January 2007)
- Armel Asselin improved libcurl to behave a lot better when an easy handle
doing an FTP transfer is removed from a multi handle before completion. The
fix also fixed the "alive counter" to be correct on "premature removal" for
all protocols.
Dan F (16 January 2007)
- Fixed a small memory leak in tftp uploads discovered by curl's memory leak
detector. Also changed tftp downloads to URL-unescape the downloaded
file name.

- David McCreedy provided libcurl changes for doing HTTP communication on
non-ASCII platforms. It does add some complexity, most notably with more
#ifdefs, but I want to see this supported added and I can't see how we can
add it without the extra stuff added.
- Setting CURLOPT_COOKIELIST to "ALL" when no cookies at all was present,
libcurl would crash when trying to read a NULL pointer.

- Toby Peterson found a nasty bug that prevented (lib)curl from properly
downloading (most) things that were larger than 4GB on 32 bit systems. Matt
Witherspoon helped as narrow down the problem.

- Linus Nielsen Feltzing introduced the --ftp-ssl-ccc command line option to
curl that uses the new CURLOPT_FTP_SSL_CCC option in libcurl. If enabled, it
will make libcurl shutdown SSL/TLS after the authentication is done on a
FTP-SSL operation.

- David McCreedy made changes to allow base64 encoding/decoding to work on
non-ASCII platforms.

- Matt Witherspoon fixed the flaw which made libcurl 7.16.0 always store
downloaded data in two buffers, just to be able to deal with a special HTTP
pipelining case. That is now only activated for pipelined transfers. In
Matt's case, it showed as a considerable performance difference,

- Victor Snezhko helped us fix bug report #1603712
( (known bug #36) --limit-rate
on Windows (since 7.16.0, but that's when they were introduced as previous
to that the limiting logic was made in the application only and not in the
library). It was actually also broken on select()-based systems (as apposed
to poll()) but we haven't had any such reports. We now use select(), Sleep()
or delay() properly to sleep a while without waiting for anything input or
output when the rate limiting is activated with the easy interface.
- Modified to use Libs.private for the libs libcurl itself needs
to get built static. It has been mentioned before and was again brought to
our attention by Nathanael Nerode who filed debian bug report #405226
