Description of problem:

According to the cURL homepage (http://curl.haxx.se/) there is a new
stable version (7.12.0) of cURL available.

Fedora Development currently carries package "curl-7.11.1".

Version 7.12.0 of cURL has the following user-visible improvements :

  * added ability to "upload" to file:// URLs
  * curl --proxy-digest is a new command line option

and has the following bugfixes :

  * improved peer certificate name verification
  * allocation failures cause no leaks nor crashes
  * the progress meter display now handles file sizes up to full 8
exabytes (which is as high a signed 64 bit number can reach)
  * general HTTP authentication improvements
  * HTTP Digest authentication with the proxy works
  * multipart formposting with -F and file names with spaces work again
