w3c-libwww 5.3.1 Released

The Libwww Users Community is pleased to announce release 5.3.1
of the W3C libwww.

Libwww is a highly modular, general-purpose client side Web API
written in C for Unix and Windows (Win32). It's well suited for both
small and large applications, like browser/editors, robots, batch
tools, etc. Pluggable modules provided with libwww include complete
HTTP/1.1 (with caching, pipelining, PUT, POST, Digest Authentication,
deflate, etc), MySQL logging, FTP, HTML/4, XML (expat), RDF (SiRPAC), SSL,
and much more. The purpose of libwww is to serve as a testbed for
protocol experiments.

Release 5.3.1 includes patches that mostly fix problems with the SSL 
interface and the Windows asynchronous event handler. The release notes[1] 
give a more detailed change list. N.B., we decided to skip the 5.3.0 release
number, as some people were already refering to the pre-release as the final

You may download the source code of this version from either the W3C
web [2] or FTP [3] sites.  Right now, only a tar file is available.
RPMs should be available soon from the same URLs.

For more information, please check out the project's home page[4].
