From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; da-DK; rv: Gecko/20070718 Fedora/ Firefox/

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):

How reproducible:

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.

forwardported NSS patch, just in case you want to give it a try.
Comment 3 Daniel Stenberg 2007-10-29 18:00:28 EDT
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...
Comment 4 Jindrich Novy 2007-11-18 11:46:30 EST
curl is now updated in rawhide to 7.17.1.
Comment 5 Rasmus Ory Nielsen 2007-11-18 12:04:24 EST
