Yesterday, I commited to the main libwww branch, the patches I had developed
for Amaya.

These patches fix problems with:

- dangling pointers problems, use of previously deallocated memory

- the use of the HTTP range to refresh the cache. The mechanism was there,
  but it wasn't working. This notably produced an error when saving (with PUT)
  a previously browsed URL. The cache entry for that URL wasn't being updated.
  The next time that you browsed this URL, you got whatever was in the cache
  at the time.

The only changes that remain in the amaya libwww branch are:

- a reduced configuration, so that we only get libwww and not everything
  associated to it when doing a CVS co with the -rAmaya flag.

- two changes due to compilation problems under Windows (in HTUtils.html and
  HTZip.c). I've these problems because we're not using a zlib DLL and
  the trace function. I hope to fix up this problem sometime, but it isn't
  prioritary.

In a nutshell, if you're under Unix, you can compile Amaya directly with
the latest libwww out from CVS :)
