LWP::UserAgent https proxy now fixed in Debian

December 7, 2013


For more 10 years, opening a https connection throught a proxy was not possible
with LWP::UserAgent.

Thanks to Steffen Ullrich, this bug is now fixed in LWP::UserAgent and LWP::Protocol::https repositories.

In Debian, I’ve updated libwww-perl 6.05-2 and liblwp-protocol-https-perl 6.04-2 to include the same patches. This fix is now available in Debian unstable.

See my previous blog for more details on this story.

All the best
