HTTP::Date: The str2time function returned wrong values for
years in the early 20th century, because timelocal() actually
expects the year to be provided on a different scale than what
HTTP::Headers can now be constructed with field names that repeat.
The $h->header function now also accept repeating field
names and can also remove headers if passed undef as value.
HTML::Form: The parse method now takes hash style optional
arguments and the old verbose behaviour is now off by default.
HTML::Form: Accept <select multiple=""> for compatibilty with
other browsers. Patch by Josh Rai
HTML::Form: Sane handling of 'disabled' for ListInput.
Based on patch by Joao Lopes
HTTP::Negotiate: Fixed matching of partial language tags.
Patch contributed by Dan Kubb.
HTTP::Response: The as_string method now returns a status line
that doesn't add the "official" code name in the message
field. This improves the ability to round-trip response objects
via HTTP::Response->parse($res->as_string) and makes the first
line of the string returned agree with $res->status_line.
Net::HTTP: The host attribute can now be set undef in
order to suppress this header for HTTP/1.0 requests.
Net::HTTP: The default Host: header does not include the
port number if it is the default (80 for plain HTTP). Some
servers get confused by this.
Net::HTTP: Ignore bogus Content-Length headers. Don't get
confused by leading or trailing whitespace.
LWP::Protocol::http: More efficient sending of small PUT/POST
requests by trying harder to pass off the whole request in a
single call to syswrite.
lwp-request now give better error messages if you used the
-o option without having the HTML-Tree distribution installed.
Also document this dependency.

HTTP::Message->parse did not work when the first line of the body
was something that looked like a header.
HTTP::Header::Auth needs HTTP::Headers to be loaded before
it replace its functions.
LWP::Protocol::nntp improvements by Ville Skyttä
- Support the nntp: scheme.
- Support hostname in news: and nntp: URIs.
- Close connection and preserve headers also in non-OK responses.
- HEAD support for URIs identifying a newsgroup.
- Comment spelling fixes.
Fix quotes in Net::HTTP example.
Detect EOF when expecting a chunk header. Should address the
warnings shown in http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=286775
WWW::RobotRules: Improved parsing of not strictly valid robots.txt files
