github tomas/needle v0.8.0

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:pass@proxy.server.com)
  • And a bit of code refactoring.

Important changes:

  • follow: true will no longer default to 10 redirects. You now need to explicitly pass a number.
  • timeout: true will no longer default to 10000 milisecs. Same as above, a number is expected.
latest releases: v2.5.2, v2.5.1, v2.5.0...
