v1.49	Aug 22nd, 2022


* This release adds nghttp2_check_header_value_rfc9113 which complains
  leading and trailing white spaces. The library now uses this function
  instead of nghttp2_check_header_value when checking HTTP header fields.


* libnghttp2_asio has been moved to its own repository and got new
  maintainer. libnghttp2_asio related code in nghttp2 repository will
  not get any updates and be removed at the end of 2022.


* Python bindings have been deprecated, and will not get any updates and
  be removed at the end of 2022 due to the maintenance issues.


* Randomizing backend server selection has been added again.

* The broken PROXY-protocol when TLS is used has been fixed.

* nghttpx now removes trailing white spaces from HTTP header fields to
  align with RFC 9113.
