This is the most current released version of Commons HttpClient, brought to you by the Apache HttpComponents Project.
This release is available in both binary and source distributions.
Note: The tar files in this distribution use GNU tar extensions and must be untarred with a GNU compatible version of tar. The version of tar on Solaris and Mac OS X will not work with these files.
The files in this distribution have been digitally signed using PGP. Each signed file has a corresponding filename.asc signature file in the same directory. The signing keys can be found in the distribution directory at < http://www.apache.org/dist/httpcomponents/httpclient-3.x/KEYS>.
Always download the KEYS file directly from the Apache site, never from a mirror site.
