Hi all,

Just a quick message to let you know I released the first version of
hackney, a simple HTTP client in Erlang. Some part of the code reuse the
cowboy HTTP parser and follow similar concepts.

Main features are:

    - no message passing: response is directly streamed to the current
      process and a state is kept in a #client{} record.  binary
    - SSL support
    - Keepalive handling
    - basic authentication
    - stream the response
    - Can send files using the sendfile API
    - Chunked encoding support
    - Optionnal socket pool
    - Used parse transform for shorcut methods

This a WIP, current TODO is available on github [1]. Full doc and source
are available on github [2].

Let me know what you think about it,
