Fedora Update Notification

Product : Fedora Core 3
Name : curl
Version : 7.12.3
Release : 2
Summary : A utility for getting files from remote servers (FTP, HTTP, and others).
Description :
cURL is a tool for getting files from FTP, HTTP, Gopher, Telnet, and Dict servers, using any of the supported protocols. cURL is designed to work without user interaction or any kind of interactivity. cURL offers many useful capabilities, like proxy support, user authentication, FTP upload, HTTP post, and file transfer resume.

Update Information:

libidn-devel is now required so that systems using the devel subpkg will build correctly. The latest version of curl uses the poll() syscall to get around a previous file descriptor limit.
