Summary     : WSGI request and response object
Description :
WebOb provides wrappers around the WSGI request environment, and an object to
help create WSGI responses. The objects map much of the specified behavior of
HTTP, including header parsing and accessors for other standard parts of the

Update Information:

***0.9.8***    * Fix issue with WSGIHTTPException inadvertently generating
unicode body and failing to encode it  * WWW-Authenticate response header is
accessible as response.www_authenticate  * response.www_authenticate and
request.authorization hold None or tuple (auth_method, params) where params is a
dictionary (or a string when auth_method is not one of known auth schemes and
for Authenticate: Basic ...)  * Don’t share response headers when getting a
response like resp = req.get_response(some_app); this can avoid some funny
errors with modifying headers and reusing Response objects.  * Add overwrite
argument to Response.set_cookie() that make the new value overwrite the
previously set. False by default.  * Add strict argument to
Response.unset_cookie() that controls if an exception should be raised in case
there are no cookies to unset. True by default.  * Fix req.GET.copy()  * Make
sure that 304 Not Modified responses generated by
Response.conditional_response_app() exclude Content-{Length/Type} headers  * Fix
Response.copy() not being an independent copy  * When the requested range is not
satisfiable, return a 416 error (was returning entire body)  * Truncate response
for range requests that go beyond the end of body (was treating as invalid).
******    * Fix an import problem with Pylons
