digitalmars.D.announce - dlang-requests v0.9.0

Hello,

I just released v0.9.0 of dlang-requests. This is large 
performance improvement and code refactoring release. Nothing 
changed in API and everything should work as before (hopefully 
better and faster)

What's new:

1. Connection pool for each HTTPRequest structure added. This 
give huge performance gain if you repeatedly call rq.get/post/... 
and/or when redirects involved.

2. Cache for permanent redirects added to Request structure.

As result started from test results

work faster anyway)
