Update to 7.19.6:

Version 7.19.6 (12 August 2009)

Daniel Stenberg (12 Aug 2009)
- Carsten Lange reported a bug and provided a patch for TFTP upload and the
  sending of the TSIZE option. I don't like fixing bugs just hours before
  a release, but since it was broken and the patch fixes this for him I decided
  to get it in anyway.

Daniel Stenberg (11 Aug 2009)
- Peter Sylvester made the HTTPS test server use specific certificates for
  each test, so that the test suite can now be used to actually test the
  verification of cert names etc. This made an error show up in the OpenSSL-
  specific code where it would attempt to match the CN field even if a
  subjectAltName exists that doesn't match. This is now fixed and verified
  in test 311.

- Benbuck Nason posted the bug report #2835196
  (, fixing a few compiler
  warnings when mixing ints and bools.

Daniel Fandrich (10 Aug 2009)
- Fixed a memory leak in the FTP code and an off-by-one heap buffer overflow.

Daniel Fandrich (9 Aug 2009)
- Fixed some memory leaks in the command-line tool that caused most of the
  torture tests to fail.

Daniel Stenberg (2 Aug 2009)
- Curt Bogmine reported a problem with SNI enabled on a particular server. We
  should introduce an option to disable SNI, but as we're in feature freeze
  now I've addressed the obvious bug here (pointed out by Peter Sylvester): we
  shouldn't try to enable SNI when SSLv2 or SSLv3 is explicitly selected.
  Code for OpenSSL and GnuTLS was fixed. NSS doesn't seem to have a particular
  option for SNI, or are we simply not using it?

Daniel Stenberg (1 Aug 2009)
- Scott Cantor posted the bug report #2829955
  ( mentioning the recent SSL cert
  verification flaw found and exploited by Moxie Marlinspike. The presentation
  he did at Black Hat is available here:

  Apparently at least one CA allowed a subjectAltName or CN that contain a
  zero byte, and thus clients that assumed they would never have zero bytes
  were exploited to OK a certificate that didn't actually match the site. Like
  if the name in the cert was "\", libcurl would
  happily verify that cert for

  libcurl now better uses the length of the extracted name, not using the zero
  termination for getting the string length.

  This fixing only made and needed in OpenSSL interfacing code.

- Tanguy Fautre pointed out that OpenSSL's function RAND_screen() (present
  only in some OpenSSL installs - like on Windows) isn't thread-safe and we
  agreed that moving it to the global_init() function is a decent way to deal
  with this situation.

- Alexander Beedie provided the patch for a noproxy problem: If I have set
  CURLOPT_NOPROXY to "*", or to a host that should not use a proxy, I actually
  could still end up using a proxy if a proxy environment variable was set.

Daniel Stenberg (27 Jul 2009)
- All the quote options (CURLOPT_QUOTE, CURLOPT_POSTQUOTE and
  CURLOPT_PREQUOTE) now accept a preceeding asterisk before the command to
  send when using FTP, as a sign that libcurl shall simply ignore the response
  from the server instead of treating it as an error. Not treating a 400+ FTP
  response code as an error means that failed commands will not abort the
  chain of commands, nor will they cause the connection to get disconnected.

Daniel Stenberg (26 Jul 2009)
- Johan van Selst posted bug report #2825989
  ( pointing out that
  OpenSSL-powered libcurl didn't support the SHA-2 digest algorithm, and
  provided the solution too: to use OpenSSL_add_all_algorithms() in addition
  to the older SSLeay_* alternative. OpenSSL_add_all_algorithms was added in
  OpenSSL 0.9.5

Daniel Stenberg (23 Jul 2009)
  They introduce known_host support for SSH keys to libcurl. See docs for
  details. Note that this feature depends on a new enough libssh2 version, to
  be supported in libssh2 1.2 and later (or current git repo at this time).

Michal Marek (22 Jul 2009)
- David Binderman found a memory and fd leak in lib/gtls.c:load_file()
  ( When looking at the code, I found that
  also the ptr pointer can leak.

Kamil Dudka (20 Jul 2009)
- Claes Jakobsson improved the support for client certificates handling in
  NSS-powered libcurl. Now the client certificates can be selected
  automatically by a NSS built-in hook. Additionally pre-login to all PKCS11
  slots is no more performed. It used to cause problems with HW tokens.

- Fixed reference counting for NSS client certificates. Now the PEM reader
  module should be always properly unloaded on Curl_nss_cleanup(). If the
  unload fails though, libcurl will try to reuse the already loaded instance.

Daniel Fandrich (15 Jul 2009)
- Added nonblock.c to the non-automake makefiles (note that the dependencies
  in the Watcom makefiles aren't quite correct).

Michal Marek (15 Jul 2009)
- Changed the description of CURLINFO_OS_ERRNO to make it clear that the
  errno is not reset on success.

Guenter Knauf (14 Jul 2009)
- renamed generated config.h to curl_config.h to avoid any future clashes
  with config.h from other projects.

Daniel Stenberg (9 Jul 2009)
- Eric Wong introduced curlx_nonblock() that the curl tool now (re-)uses for
  setting a file descriptor non-blocking. Used by the functionality Eric
  himself brough on June 15th.

Daniel Stenberg (8 Jul 2009)
- Constantine Sapuntzakis posted bug report #2813123
  ( and an a patch that fixes the

  Url A is accessed using auth. Url A redirects to Url B (on a different
  server0. Url B reuses a persistent connection. Url B has auth, even though
  it's on a different server.

  Note: if Url B does not reuse a persistent connection, auth is not sent.


  data->state.first_host is not initialized becuase Curl_http_connect is not
  called when a connection is reused.


  move initialization of data->state.first_host to Curl_http. No code before
  Curl_http uses data->state.first_host anyway.

Guenter Knauf (4 Jul 2009)
- Markus Koetter provided a patch to avoid getnameinfo() usage which broke a
  couple of both IPv4 and IPv6 autobuilds.

Daniel Stenberg (29 Jun 2009)
- Markus Koetter made CURLOPT_FTPPORT (and curl's -P/--ftpport) support a port
  range if given colon-separated after the host name/address part. Like

- Modified the separators used for CURLOPT_CERTINFO in multi-part outputs. I
  don't know how they got wrong in the first place, but using this output
  format makes it possible to quite easily separate the string into an array
  of multiple items.

Daniel Fandrich (16 June 2009)
- Added a few more compiler warning options for gcc.

Daniel Stenberg (16 Jun 2009)
- Reuven Wachtfogel made curl -o - properly produce a binary output on windows
  (no newline translations). Use -B/--use-ascii if you rather get the ascii

Michal Marek (16 Jun 2009)
- When doing non-anonymous ftp via http proxies and the password is not
  provided in the url, add it there (squid needs this).

Daniel Stenberg (15 Jun 2009)
- Eric Wong's patch:

  This allows curl(1) to be used as a client-side tunnel for arbitrary stream
  protocols by abusing chunked transfer encoding in both the HTTP request and
  HTTP response.  This requires server support for sending a response while a
  request is still being read, of course.

  If attempting to read from stdin returns EAGAIN, then we pause our sender.
  This leaves curl to attempt to read from the socket while reading from stdin
  (and thus sending) is paused.

  This change was needed to allow successfully tunneling the git protocol over
  HTTP (--no-buffer is needed, as well).

Patrick Monnerat (15 Jun 2009)
- Replaced use of standard C library rand()/srand() by our own pseudo-random
  number generator.

Yang Tse (11 Jun 2009)
- I adapted testcurl script to allow building test harness programs when
  cross-compiling for a *-*-mingw* host.

Daniel Stenberg (10 Jun 2009)
- Fabian Keil ran clang on the (lib)curl code, found a bunch of warnings and
  contributed a range of patches to fix them.

Yang Tse (10 Jun 2009)
- I introduced configure script option --enable-curldebug which now allows
  the decoupled enabling or disabling of the curl debug memory tracking
  feature from the --enable-debug option which no longer controls this.

  curl --version will list 'Debug' feature for debug enabled builds, and
  will list 'TrackMemory' feature for curl debug memory tracking capable
  builds. These features are independent and can be controlled when running
  the configure script. When --enable-debug is given both features will be
  enabled, unless some restriction prevents memory tracking from being used.

  Internally, definition of preprocessor symbol DEBUGBUILD restricts code
  which is only compiled for debug enabled builds. And symbol CURLDEBUG is
  used to differentiate code which is _only_ used for memory tracking.

Yang Tse (9 Jun 2009)
- Daniel Steinberg pointed out that Curl_FormInit() in formdata.c was not
  initializing the fread callback pointer and this triggered a compiler
  warning, also provided a friendly suggestion on how to fix it.

Daniel Stenberg (8 Jun 2009)
- Claes Jakobsson provided a patch for libcurl-NSS that fixed a bad refcount
  issue with client certs that caused issues like segfaults.

- Triggered by bug report #2798852 and the patch in there, I fixed configure
  to detect gnutls build options with pkg-config only and not libgnutls-config
  anymore since GnuTLS has stopped distributing that tool. If an explicit path
  is given to configure, we will instead guess on how to link and use that
  lib. I did not use the patch from the bug report.

Yang Tse (8 Jun 2009)
- Igor Novoseltsev adjusted Makefile.vxworks to get sources and headers
  included from, and provided docs\INSTALL VxWorks section.

- I removed buildconf.bat from release and daily snapshot archives. This
  file is only for CVS tree checkout builds.

Daniel Stenberg (8 Jun 2009)
- Eric Wong fixed --no-buffer to actually switch off output buffering. Been
  broken since 7.19.0

Bill Hoffman (6 Jun 2009)
- Added some cmake docs and fixed socklen_t in the build.

Yang Tse (5 Jun 2009)
- John E. Malmberg provided VMS specific patch: "This fixes an existing bug
  in urlglob.c where it was not converting the Curl Unix exit code to a VMS
  DCL compatible exit code.  This fix required the enhancement described next.
  This also adds an enhancement to main.c so that when curl is run under a
  Unix shell like Bash on VMS, it will return the standard Unix exit codes
  and messages." And another patch for docs/examples.

  I introduced os-specific.c and os-specific.h for use in curl tool code
  and adjusted John E. Malmberg's patch placement to use these new files
  as an effort to prevent main.c from growing ad infinitum. Code already
  existing in main.c which is OS specific should be moved into these files.

Daniel Stenberg (4 June 2009)
- Setting the Content-Length: header from your app when you do a POST or PUT
  is almost always a VERY BAD IDEA. Yet there are still apps out there doing
  this, and now recently it triggered a bug/side-effect in libcurl as when
  libcurl sends a POST or PUT with NTLM, it sends an empty post first when it
  knows it will just get a 401/407 back. If the app then replaced the
  Content-Length header, it caused the server to wait for input that libcurl
  wouldn't send. Aaron Oneal reported this problem in bug report #2799008
  ( and helped us verify the fix.

Yang Tse (4 Jun 2009)
- Igor Novoseltsev provided patches and information, that after some
  adjustments to better fit curl's way of doing things, have resulted
  in the posibility of building libcurl for VxWorks.

Daniel Fandrich (2 June 2009)
- Checked in a Google Android make file. To use it, you must first
  create a config.h file by running configure in the Android environment,
  which doesn't seem to be easy to do. If no easy way can be found, a
  static config-android.h may need to be created and checked in to the
  libcurl source tree.

Daniel Stenberg (1 June 2009)
- Claes Jakobsson fixed the configure script to better find and use NSS
  without pkg-config.

Yang Tse (1 Jun 2009)
- John E. Malmberg provided a VMS specific clean-up for curl.h, and pointed
  out that the configure script was failing to detect the timeval struct on
  VMS when building with _XOPEN_SOURCE_EXTENDED undefined due to definition
  taking place in socket.h instead of time.h.  I have adjusted configure
  script to also include this header when checking struct timeval.

Daniel Stenberg (27 May 2009)
- Frank McGeough provided a small OpenSSL #include fix to make libcurl compile
  fine with Nokia 5th edition 1.0 SDK for Symbian.

- Andre Guibert de Bruet found a call to a OpenSSL function that didn't check
  for a failure properly.

- Mike Crowe pointed out that setting CURLOPT_USERPWD to NULL used to clear
  the auth credentials back in 7.19.0 and earlier while now you have to set ""
  to get the same effect. His patch brings back the ability to use NULL.

- Claes Jakobsson fixed libcurl-NSS to build fine even without the
  PK11_CreateGenericObject() function.

Daniel Stenberg (25 May 2009)
- bug report #2796358 ( pointed
  out that the cookie parser would leak memory when it parses cookies that are
  received with domain, path etc set multiple times in the same header. While
  such a cookie is questionable, they occur in the wild and libcurl no longer
  leaks memory for them. I added such a header to test case 8.

Daniel Fandrich (22 May 2009)
- Removed some obsolete digest code that caused a valgrind error in test 551.

Daniel Fandrich (20 May 2009)
- Added "non-existing host" test keywords to make it easy to skip those
  tests on machines that have broken DNS configurations (such as
  those configured to use OpenDNS).

Daniel Stenberg (19 May 2009)
- Kamil Dudka brought the patch from the Redhat bug entry which was libcurl closing
  a bad file descriptor when closing down the FTP data connection.  Caolan
  McNamara seems to be the original author of it.
