Mechanize v2.3 Release Notes

Release Date: 2012-02-20 // over 10 years ago
    • Minor enhancements

      • Add support for the Max-Age attribute in the Set-Cookie header.
      • Added Mechanize::Download#body for compatibility with Mechanize::File when using Mechanize#get_file with Mechanize::Image or other Download-based pluggable parser. Issue #202 by angas
      • Mechanize#max_file_buffer may be set to nil to disable creation of Tempfiles.
    • 🐛 Bug fixes

      • Applied Mechanize#max_file_buffer to the Content-Encoding handlers as well to prevent extra Tempfiles for small gzip or deflate response
      • Increased the default Mechanize#max_file_buffer to 100,000 bytes. This gives ~5MB of response bodies in memory with the default history setting of 50 pages (depending on GC behavior).
      • Ignore empty path/domain attributes.
      • Cookies with an empty Expires attribute value were stored as session cookies but cookies without the Expires attribute were not. Issue #78
