Module documentation for 188.8.131.52
Modify flushing of request bodies. Previously, regardless of the size of the request body, the entire body would be flushed. When uploading large files to a web app that does not accept such files (e.g., returns a 413 too large status), browsers would still send the entire request body and the servers will still receive it.
The new behavior is to detect if there is a large amount of data still to be consumed and, if so, immediately terminate the connection. In the case of chunked request bodies, up to a maximum number of bytes is consumed before the connection is terminated.
This is controlled by the new setting
setMaximumBodyFlush. A value of
@Nothing@ will return the original behavior of flushing the entire body.
WAI no longer uses conduit for its streaming interface.
onClose settings now provide the
SockAddr of the client,
onOpen can return a
Bool which will close the connection. The
responseRaw response has been added, which provides a more elegant way to
handle WebSockets than the previous
settingsIntercept. The old settings
accessors have been deprecated in favor of new setters, which will allow
settings changes to be made in the future without breaking backwards
ResourceT is not used anymore. Request and Response is now abstract data types. To use their constructors, Internal module should be imported.
Support for byte range requests.
Sockets now have
FD_CLOEXEC set on them. This behavior is more secure, and
the change should not affect the vast majority of use cases. However, it
appeared that this is buggy and is fixed in 2.0.0.
