Somebody sent Your JoeDog a patch that he promptly lost. If that person could resend it, he’d very much appreciate it…..

UPDATE: Your JoeDog found the patch. It’s a fine piece of work by Valery Levental.  The patch tested out and was submitted to version control. In all likelihood, we won’t release a beta distribution. You can grab the code off github.com.

This patch

  1. Fixes our improper handling of the Data URI scheme
  2. Fixes our improper handling of HTTP 1/1 responses containing Content-Length: 0
  3. Improves our handling of chunked transfers
  4. Further optimizes the http header parser.

Some siege users have reported hangs with version 4.x.x This update may fix those conditions (although in some cases, the problem was tied to a specific version of glibc.)
