w3c-libwww 5.3.2 Released
-------------------------

The Libwww Users Community is pleased to announce release 5.3.2
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 5.3.2 proposes the latest patches that have been applied to CVS
in the past six months since the last release. It includes enhancements to
the RDF parser and many bug fixes, principally in the cache, the chunk, and 
the hash modules.  The release notes[1] give a more detailed change list.

You may download the source code of this version from either the W3C
web [2] or FTP [3] sites. Thanks to Vladimir Kozlov, we're also distributing
a precompiled Windows version of the libwww applications, including the
WinCommander tool.

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

Many thanks to Vladimir Kozlov, Wayne Davison, Art Barstow, Peter Stamfest,
Zhu Qun-Ying, Jens Meggers, and Ken Olum for their time and contributions in
shaping and testing this release.
