Description of problem:
According to the cURL homepage (http://curl.haxx.se/) there is a new
stable version (7.17.0) of cURL available.
A side note:
Curlftpfs has some problems with curl 7.16.4. Here is a quote from the developer of curlftpfs:
"Also, you don't want to use curl 7.16.4 nor 7.16.3. They both have bugs
that crash the library. The safe versions are 7.16.2 or 7.17.0."
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Check out http://curl.haxx.se/
2. Check out Fedora Core Development
Yes, I'm aware of that, but I have problems forwardporting the NSS patch for
7.17.0 (curl dies with double free corruption while closing socket) what
prevents me from doing the update.
Created attachment 236101 [details]
forwardported NSS patch, just in case you want to give it a try.
I believe a better version of that patch is what went in upstream and is now
included in the just released curl and libcurl 7.17.1...
curl is now updated in rawhide to 7.17.1.
