The serf packages have been updated to the new upstream release
0.7.0. See


for more details about the changes in this release.

More information about serf can be found at

This release increases the version of the libserf0 library from 0 to
1, so libserf0_0 and libserf0_1 may be installed in parallel. This
is necessary because applications linked against serf-0.3.1-1 will
not run with serf-0.7.0-1 and vice versa. Note that upstream did not
increase the library version.

Please note that 0.7.0 is not API-compatible with
0.3.1. Applications compiled against 0.3.1 may require changes to
compile against 0.7.0.

The serf library is a C-based HTTP client library built upon the
Apache Portable Runtime (APR) library. It multiplexes connections,
running the read/write communication asynchronously. Memory copies
and transformations are kept to a minimum to provide high
performance operation.

Note that downloads from sources.redhat.com (aka cygwin.com) aren't
