Today the rest-client 2.0.1 release is available with a few minor changes.
This release fixes compatibility with OpenSSL 1.1.0 by dropping the
old check for weak default TLS ciphers, and using the built-in Ruby
defaults. Ruby versions from Oct. 2014 onward use sane defaults, so
this is no longer needed. (#573)
Users will also now see warnings if auto-generated headers from the
payload, such as Content-Type, override headers set by the user. This
is usually not what the user wants to happen, and can be surprising.
