Hi friends!

I'm happy to announce another release - this time mostly due to the security
flaw discovered.

Get the source package from or from one of
the many mirrors.

Curl and libcurl 7.13.1

  Public curl release number: 86

This release includes the following changes:

  o CURLOPT_COOKIEFILE set to "" is now activating the cookie engine
  o FTP code overhaul => multi interface much less blocking

Other curl-related news since the previous public release:

This release would not have looked like this without help, code, reports and
advice from friends like these:

  R. Palmer, Mike Dobbs, David in bug report #1124588, Ralph Mitchell,
  Rene Rebe, Dave Dribin, Dan Fandrich
