Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
As a solution to a security issue, GSSAPI credential delegation was disabled, which broke the functionality of the applications that were relying on delegation, which was incorrectly enabled by libcurl. To fix this issue, the CURLOPT_GSSAPI_DELEGATION libcurl option has been introduced in order to enable delegation explicitly when applications need it. All applications using GSSAPI credential delegation can now use this new libcurl option to be able to run properly.
