  • Support for new HTTP/1.1 methods PUT, GET, OPTIONS and TRACE, in addition to GET, HEAD and POST.
  • Intelligent parsing of HTTP/1.0 and HTTP/1.1 Headers.
  • Clean and elegant methods for reading and rendering form elements, and for preserving state, based on a deep object-oriented hierarchy. Powerful interactive debugging mode.
  • Highly-automated and safe memory management.
