[erlang-questions] [ANN] Cowboy and Ranch 0.10

Hello!

I just pushed Cowboy 0.10 and Ranch 0.10.

   https://github.com/extend/cowboy
   https://github.com/extend/ranch

The Cowboy changelog can be found here: 
https://github.com/extend/cowboy/blob/master/CHANGELOG.md

This release sees the addition of functions for reading multipart! (And 
there are also functions for creating multipart bodies in the cowlib 
library if you need them.) The old multipart interface got removed.

The other big change is a rework of the body reading interface, again. 
Users have reported having timeout issues sometimes so the new interface 
allows you to configure read length/timeout so you can control the rate 
of transfer *per body function call*.

The functions init_stream, stream_body and skip_body have been 
deprecated and will be removed in 1.0 (alongside one clause of the 
body/2 and body_qs/2 functions).

Current code *should* be compatible but you are really encouraged to 
test and remove dead code introduced by this change.

The changes in Ranch are mostly small so I won't bore you with the details.

The next step will be to release 1.0 sometimes this summer. Work on 2.0 
will start immediately after that but 2.0 is planned to be released 
after Erlang 18.0 is out. We'll have a new version bump for every Erlang 
version basically. More details later.

Hope you enjoy this release, and that I didn't break your code (too much)!

Enjoy.
