Today we’re happy to announce that we released two NuGet packages:
- A brand new Microsoft.Bcl.Compression (Beta). A portable compression library that supports stream based compression (gzip, deflate) as well as ZIP archives.
- An updated Microsoft.Net.Http 2.2 (Beta). Last week we shipped an RTM version. Today, we released a new beta that provides automatic decompression by taking a dependency on the Microsoft.Bcl.Compression package.
Before we go into the details, let’s first take a look at why compression is particularly interesting for HttpClient.
