Welcome. Due to some annoying regressions in the previous release we think we owned it to everyone to do a quick patch follow-up.

Here are some the most important fixes in this release
configure: check for nghttp2_session_get_stream_local_window_size
We use this function now, introduced in nghttp2 1.15.0, released in September 2016.
return IPv6 first for localhost resolves
Resolving “localhost” did not return the (fixed) addresses in the correct order. It now returns IPv6 as the first.
http2 regression on upload EOF handling
When we added an optimization in the previous release we missed a code path that sometimes lead to “hanging” uploads over HTTP/2.
os400: correct EXPECTED_STRING_LASTZEROTERMINATED
curl builds fine for “IBM i” again.
quiche: fix lookup of transfer at multi
Doing multiplexed HTTP/3 over multiple connections with quiche works much better.
mkhelp: strip off escape sequences
The command sequence that generates the man page display code for the
--manual option did at some point regress to include escape sequences. Now those sequences are properly filtered out.
fix build when SIZEOF_CURL_OFF_T > SIZEOF_OFF_T
A build problem was fixed for these rare platforms.
do not clear the credentials on redirect to absolute URL
Yet another regression that we allowed because we apparently did not have a test for this! Now we have a test and redirects to the same origin when using -u for credentials now send the credentials even in the redirected request.
