./www/ruby-net-http-persistent, Manages persistent connections using Net::HTTP

[ CVSweb ] [ Homepage ] [ RSS ] [ Required by ] [ Add to tracker ]


Branch: CURRENT, Version: 2.9.4, Package name: ruby200-net-http-persistent-2.9.4, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

Manages persistent connections using Net::HTTP plus a speed fix for 1.8.
It's thread-safe too!

Using persistent HTTP connections can dramatically increase the speed of
HTTP. Creating a new HTTP connection for every request involves an extra
TCP round-trip and causes TCP congestion avoidance negotiation to start
over.

Net::HTTP supports persistent connections with some API methods but does not
handle reconnection gracefully. net-http-persistent supports reconnection
according to RFC 2616.

  * Added max_requests to avoid ECONNRESET for a server that allows a limited
    number of requests on a connection.  Pull request #42 by James Tucker.
  * Request failures are now raised with the backtrace of the original
    exception.  This gives better insight into the reason for the failure.
    See #41 by Andrew Cholakian.
  * OpenSSL is no longer required.  If OpenSSL is not available an exception
    will be raised when attempting to access HTTPS resources.  Feature request

  * Added #cert and #key aliases for Net::HTTP compatibility.  Pull request
    #26 by dlee.

Log message:
Update ruby-net-http-persistent to 2.6.

=== 2.6 / 2010-03-26

* Minor enhancement
  * Net::HTTP::Persistent#idle_timeout may be set to nil to disable expiration
    of connections.  Pull Request #21 by Aaron Stone
   2012-02-28 21:38:51 by Min Sik Kim | Files touched by this commit (2) | Package updated
Log message:
Update ruby-net-http-persistent to 2.5.2.

Changes:
  * The proxy may be changed at any time.
  * The allowed SSL version may now be set via #ssl_version.
    Issue #16 by astera
  * Added Net::HTTP::Persistent#override_headers which allows overriding
  * Net::HTTP default headers like User-Agent.  See
    Net::HTTP::Persistent@Headers for details.  Issue #17 by andkerosine

    OpenSSL::SSL::VERIFY_NONE.
  * Bug fixes.
   2011-12-16 14:29:09 by Takahiro Kambe | Files touched by this commit (3) | Package updated
Log message:
Update www/ruby-net-http-persistent package to 2.3.2.

=== 2.3.2

* Bug fix
  * Finish connections that were closed by Net::HTTP so they can be restarted.

=== 2.3.1 / 2011-10-26

* Bug fix
  * If a request object already contains a Connection header it will no longer
    be overridden.  This allows keep-alive connections to be disabled on a
    per-request basis.

=== 2.3 / 2011-10-25

* Minor Enhancement
  * The time since last use for a connection is now recorded in error
    messages for the connection.

=== 2.2 / 2011-10-24

* Minor Enhancements
  * Added timeouts for idle connections which are set through #idle_timeout.
    The default timeout is 5 seconds.  Reducing the idle timeout is preferred
    over setting #retry_change_requests to true if you wish to avoid the "too
    many connection resets" error when POSTing data.
  * Documented tunables and settings in one place in Net::HTTP::Persistent

=== 2.1 / 2011-09-19

* Minor Enhancement
  * For HTTPS connections, SSL sessions are now reused avoiding the extra
    round trips and computations of extra SSL handshakes.  If you have
    problems with SSL session reuse it can be disabled by
    Net::HTTP::Persistent#reuse_ssl_sessions

* Bug Fixes
  * The default certificate store is now used even if #verify_mode was not
    set.  Issue #7, Pull Request #8 by Matthew M. Boedicker
   2011-09-12 15:53:59 by Takahiro Kambe | Files touched by this commit (2) | Package updated
Log message:
Update ruby-net-http-persistent package to 2.0.

=== 2.0 / 2011-08-26

* Incompatibility
  * Net::HTTP::Persistent#verify_mode now defaults to
    OpenSSL::SSL::VERIFY_PEER.  This may cause HTTPS request failures if your
    default certificate store lacks the correct certificates.
