Project HTTP Release Notes

Overview

Experimental Fix for Long-Standing DNS Problems
The mechanism used to perform DNS look ups was changed from an application-hosted DNS resolver to a combination of threads and the host operating system's resolver.
Mesh Download with Better TCP Connection Behavior
This release of the viewer reduces by 75% the number of connections used for downloading meshes. It also reuses these connections more effectively further reducing network demands. Those who have experienced connectivity problems from router instability or other networking problems may see a significant improvement.
General Reliability Improvements in Mesh Upload and Download
A great deal of work was put into the mesh upload and download code. Better error handling, less frequent request retries, removal of many thread issues and fixes for numerous smaller bugs are a part of this release.
