Fedora Update Notification
2011-04-27 02:24:16

Name        : libsoup
Product     : Fedora 15
Version     : 2.34.1
Release     : 1.fc15
URL         : http://live.gnome.org/LibSoup
Summary     : Soup, an HTTP library implementation
Description :
Libsoup is an HTTP library implementation in C. It was originally part
of a SOAP (Simple Object Access Protocol) implementation called Soup, but
the SOAP and non-SOAP parts have now been split into separate packages.

libsoup uses the Glib main loop and is designed to work well with GTK
applications. This enables GNOME applications to access HTTP servers
on the network in a completely asynchronous fashion, very similar to
the Gtk+ programming model (a synchronous operation mode is also
supported for those who want it).

Update Information:

A bug-fix release of libsoup. Changes include:
* UTF-8-encoded header encoding/decoding rules updated to match RFC 5987. In particular, a UTF-8-encoded filename parameter in Content-Disposition will now override an ASCII one.
* When not using UTF-8-encoded filenames in Content-Disposition, always quote the filename, since some servers erroneously fail to handle non-quoted ones. [#641280]
* Fixed several memory leaks
* Fixed decoding base64 data: URLs
* Simplified the libsoup-gnome build on Windows by dropping the gnome-keyring dependency
* Fixed a bug in soup_uri_to_string() in which (invalid) port numbers could be output as negative numbers (tripping up a WebKit "sanity checking" test). [#647767]
* Fixed a cache corruption bug in SoupCache. [#648285]
* Fixed a crash in SoupSessionSync when using soup_session_abort().
