Hi friends!

Another two months of efforts have gone by and now we're happy to present a
new curl and libcurl release! The major focus this time is bug fixing, but
there are a few fancy new features added and in some esoteric behavior that no
longer is supported. See CHANGES for the gory details.

Go get it from http://curl.haxx.se/download.html

Curl and libcurl 7.18.1

  Public curl releases: 104
  Command line options: 126
  curl_easy_setopt() options: 150
  Public functions in libcurl: 56
  Public web site mirrors: 39
  Known libcurl bindings: 36
  Contributors: 621

This release includes the following changes:

  o added support for HttpOnly cookies
  o 'make ca-bundle' downloads and generates an updated ca bundle file
  o we no longer distribute or install a ca cert bundle
  o SSLv2 is now disabled by default for SSL operations
  o the test509-style setting URL in callback is officially no longer supported
  o support a full chain of certificates in a given PKCS12 certificate
  o resumed transfers work with SFTP
  o added type checking macros for curl_easy_setopt() and curl_easy_getinfo(),
    watch out for new warnings in code using libcurl (needs gcc-4.3 and
    currently only works in C mode)
  o curl_easy_setopt(), curl_easy_getinfo(), curl_share_setopt() and
    curl_multi_setopt() uses are now checked to use exactly three arguments
  o --with-ca-path=DIR configure option allows to set an openSSL CApath instead
    of a default ca bundle.

This release includes the following bugfixes:

  o improved pipelining
  o improved strdup replacement
  o GnuTLS-built libcurl failed when doing global cleanup and reinit
  o error message problem when unable to resolve a host on Windows
  o Accept: header replacing
  o not verifying server certs with GnuTLS still failed if gnutls had
    problems with the cert
  o when using the multi interface and a handle is removed while still having
    a transfer going on, the connection is now closed by force
  o bad re-use of SSL connections in non-complete state
  o test case 405 failures with GnuTLS builds
  o crash when connection cache size is 1 and Curl_do() failed
  o GnuTLS-built libcurl can now be forced to prefer SSLv3
  o crash when doing Negotiate again on a re-used connection
  o select/poll regression
  o better MIT kerberos configure check
  o curl_easy_reset() + SFTP re-used connection download crash
  o SFTP non-existing file + SFTP existing file error
  o sharing DNS cache between easy handles running in multiple threads could
    lead to crash
  o SFTP upload with CURLOPT_FTP_CREATE_MISSING_DIRS on re-used connection
  o SFTP infinite loop when given an invalid quote command
  o curl-config erroneously reported LDAPS support with missing LDAP libraries
  o SCP infinite loop when downloading a zero byte file
  o setting the CURLOPT_SSL_CTX_FUNCTION with libcurl built without OpenSSL
    now makes curl_easy_setopt() properly return failure
  o configure --with-libssh2 (with no given path)

This release includes the following known bugs:

  o see docs/KNOWN_BUGS (http://curl.haxx.se/docs/knownbugs.html)

New curl mirrors:

  o http://curl.cuendet.com/ is a new mirror in Atlanta, USA

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

  Michal Marek, Dmitry Kurochkin, Niklas Angebrand, GŁnter Knauf, Yang Tse,
  Dan Fandrich, Mike Hommey, Pooyan McSporran, Jerome Muffat-Meridol,
  Kaspar Brand, Gautam Kachroo, Zmey Petroff, Georg Lippitsch, Sam Listopad,
  Anatoli Tubman, Mike Protts, Michael Calmer, Brian Ulm, Dmitry Popov,
  Jes Badwal, Dan Petitt, Stephen Collyer

         Thanks! (and sorry if I forgot to mention someone)
