Cowboy master (and pre-releases) pulls Cowlib master at this time.

Your own project can depend on Cowlib (BUILD_DEPS if using Erlang.mk) to 
fetch it before Cowboy can, and override the version.

All three related projects (Cowboy, Cowlib and Gun) will have their next 
version released this summer require at least Erlang/OTP 19.0 and above.

As far as Cowboy is concerned, this decision was taken in August last 
year and is clearly written in the introduction. Expect more changes to 
both Cowlib and Cowboy that require 19+ in the next few weeks.
