  • Fix: allow node.js core to handle keep-alive connection pool when passing a custom agent


  • Fix: redirect mode manual should work even when there is no redirection or broken redirection


  • Enhance: rejected promise now use custom Error (thx to @pekeler)
  • Enhance: FetchError contains err.type and err.code, allows for better error handling (thx to @pekeler)
  • Enhance: basic support for redirect mode manual and error, allows for location header extraction (thx to @jimmywarting for the initial PR)


  • Fix: wrapping Request instance with FormData body again should preserve the body as-is

  • Enhance: Request and Response now have proper string and buffer body support (thx to @kirill-konshin)
  • Enhance: Body constructor has been refactored out (thx to @kirill-konshin)
  • Enhance: Headers now has forEach method (thx to @tricoder42)
  • Enhance: back to 100% code coverage
  • Fix: better form-data support (thx to @item4)

  • Fix: handle body stream error, for cases such as incorrect Content-Encoding header
  • Fix: when following certain redirects, use GET on subsequent request per Fetch Spec
  • Fix: Request and Response constructors now parse headers input using Headers
