This version introduces a number of new things:
- Cookie support
- Fine tuning for following redirects (follow_keep_method, follow_if_same_host, follow_if_same_protocol, etc)
- Much better memory handling (lower footprint)
- Better proxy authentication (you can now pass a proxy URL with user/pass, e.g. http://user:email@example.com)
- And a bit of code refactoring.
follow: truewill no longer default to 10 redirects. You now need to explicitly pass a number.
timeout: truewill no longer default to 10000 milisecs. Same as above, a number is expected.
