Hi all,

I'm pleased to announce the first stable and long support release of
Hackney, an HTTP client library for Erlang. Hackney is out since a long
time and is actually used in production in many projects.

This releases highlights the following features:

- no message passing (except for asynchronous responses): response is
directly streamed to the socket and state is kept in the requesting process.
- binary streams
- SSL support
- Keepalive handling
- fetch a response asynchronously
- multipart support (streamed or not)
- chunked encoding support
- Can send files using the sendfile API
- REST syntax: hackney:Method(URL) (where a method can be get, post, put,
delete, ...)
- Metrics using folsom or exometer

More details about the release can be found here:

Documentation is available on Github:

Hope you find it useful.
