This is excellent news. There's a new Erlang app we fancy having a go at
here but are held back for want of HTTP-1.1 support in Inets.

Any idea when there will be a release?

Also, the http client in the sowap application on sourceforge from Johan
Blom looks like a good start for a HTTP-1.1 client. It doesn't support
persistent connections but this probably wouldn't be too hard to add
(perhaps some http guru might help Johan out :).
