I am happy to announce version 0.7.1 of PuREST JSON, Codename: cookie 
monster on the couch [*].

PuREST JSON is a library for working with JSON data and communication 
with RESTful HTTP webservices that use JSON data.

New in this release:
- You can now use cookie authentication, e.g. for secure communication 
with a CouchDB, but it also works for any other implementation of HTTP 
security with cookies, as long as the expected post data is in the 
format "name=<username>&password=<password>", and only expects 1 cookie 
on each request.

- [rest-json] has a third outlet, that reports the HTTP status of the 
request. That enables you to react e.g. on HTTP status 403 and 
re-authorize your connection.

See the help files, manuals and examples for details.

Have fun,

PS: For those of you waiting for OAUTH: I am still planning to 
implementing it, but I am not sure, if a general implementation is even 
possible. But I will see to it.

[*] Well actually 0.7 was cookie monster on the couch, but it still had 
two serious bug that I have fixed.
