Notable changes

This is a security release.

Vulnerabilities fixed:

  • CVE-2019-15606: HTTP header values do not have trailing OWS trimmed.
  • CVE-2019-15605: HTTP request smuggling using malformed Transfer-Encoding header.
  • CVE-2019-15604: Remotely trigger an assertion on a TLS server with a malformed certificate string.

Also, HTTP parsing is more strict to be more secure. Since this may
cause problems in interoperability with some non-conformant HTTP
implementations, it is possible to disable the strict checks with the
--insecure-http-parser command line flag, or the insecureHTTPParser
http option. Using the insecure HTTP parser should be avoided.
