Hello Sergey,

I merged back the libwww-ssl code into libwww. It's been available off CVS
since almost two weeks ago. There's also a pre-release tar file distribution.
An announce went out to the libwww list. You must have missed it.

I've not yet update this page:


but I did put a news item on the homepage of libwww:


We (libwww User's community) are preparing a release, integrating patches,
and so on. I hope it'll be ready for this week.
