The libmicrohttpd GNU project is the C library that makes it easy to run an HTTP web-server as part of another application while being as small as about ~32k compiled.

Today marked the GNU libmicrohttpd 0.9.57 release and while the version number may not seem like much, it comes with a number of significant improvements. Highlights include:

- A "huge" internal refactoring of the connection handling code to improve its HTTPS support.

- Support for debug asserts.

- Portability fixes for GNU Hurd.

- Improved CPU utilization.

- Various FreeBSD / Darwin / Solaris fixes/improvements, improved Cygwin support, and other portability fixes.

More details via the mailing list announcement.
