HTTP 1.0 Implementation now in trunk!

Okay, this will be quick.

Yesterday I was able to come up with a really crude yet functional HTTP 1.0 client. This is already available in the subversion repository, and ready for more unit tests to make sure that we can cover more cases before shipping. Help would be definitely appreciated in terms of writing unit tests and refactoring/improving the URI parser and the client implementation.

More information to come in the next few days as I continue developing the HTTP implementation.

So if you have time to spare and brain cycles to donate, we'd definitely appreciate the help!

Software requirements

I've put up the beginnings of software requirements specification on the C++ Network wiki. I hope this could spark a bit of debate and we can make some more progress when its decided exactly what networking features we'd like to add to C++.

Project Co-ordination

The first announcement I can make is that I have installed myself (in a benevolent 3rd world dictator kind of way) as release manager/project co-ordinator. This will free Dean to continue outlining his vision with the architecture documentation and I will hope to be able to encourage some people to contribute ideas, time or other resources to this project.

If you want to contribute, take a look at our mailing list and we'll be interested to hear what your thoughts are.

Networking in C++

In the interests of promoting discussion, and taking a cue from the success of Improving Boost Documents, this blog has been set up to show-case networking in C++, and to provide feedback for the cpp-netlib community.

The aim of cpp-netlib is to provide a library with clean, type-safe interface for networking using modern C++ techniques. Eventually, it is hoped that it will become a part of the Boost C++ Libraries.
