    - Added 'connected' method to allow introspection of persistent

    - An array reference of redirection result hash references is included
      in the final response hash reference (but only if redirects occur).


    - Because folded headers are obsoleted in the revised RFCs, if CRLF is
      found in header values followed by one or more spaces, they are all
      replaced by a single space.


    - Per the RFC, control headers are now sent first before other headers
      (which are sent in arbitrary order).

    - Only well-known headers have their case canonicalized; all other
      headers are sent in the case provided by the user.

    - The 'keep_alive' option now also sets the SO_KEEPALIVE option
      on the underlying socket to help with long-lived, idle connections.

    - Request header field values are now validated against the RFC rules
      (i.e. empty or else space-or-tab separated tokens of printable

0.044     2014-07-16 23:46:09-04:00 America/New_York


    - Providing a custom 'Host' header is now a fatal exception.  Previously, it

    - optimized URL splitting

    - Passing 'undef' for any proxy attribute will prevent HTTP::Tiny from
      setting the proxy from the environment.

      transparent IPv4 or IPv6 support.

    [no code change, only an amended Changes file]

    [INCOMPATIBLE CHANGES (from 0.039)]

    - The 'proxy' attribute no longer takes precedence over the
      'http_proxy' environment variable.  With the addition of http_proxy
      and https_proxy attributes (and corresponding environment variable
      defaults), the legacy 'proxy' attribute now maps to the
      all_proxy/ALL_PROXY environment variable and only takes effect when
      other proxy attributes are not defined.
