I previously thought of releasing 7.18.0 in December but since there are still outstanding topics in the list and since there's no pressure due to any serious bug fixes or anything, I decided we can just as wait until January. I want January 13th to be the feature freeze day after which no new features will be committed until the release, which hopefully then could be done by January 28th or so.
The live updated TODO-RELEASE document will change over time, but it currently contains these items:
- socklen_t usage in curl/curl.h for systems without it
- DNS resolve over socks5
patch by Maxim Perenesenko on Dec 26 2007
- pipelining patch(es) from Dmitry Kurochkin
- bug reports #1850730 and #1854175, both dealing with POST over proxy requiring Digest auth
