HTTP Changelog


1.10.0 (2024-03-27) Release on GitHub

  • Feature: Add new PSR-7 implementation and remove dated RingCentral PSR-7 dependency.
    (#518, #519, #520 and #522 by @clue)

    This changeset allows us to maintain our own PSR-7 implementation and reduce
    dependencies on external projects. It also improves performance slightly and
    does not otherwise affect our public API. If you want to explicitly install
    the old RingCentral PSR-7 dependency, you can still install it like this:

    composer require ringcentral/psr7
  • Feature: Add new Uri class for new PSR-7 implementation.
    (#521 by @clue)

  • Feature: Validate outgoing HTTP message headers and reject invalid messages.
    (#523 by @clue)

  • Feature: Full PHP 8.3 compatibility.
    (#508 by @clue)

  • Fix: Fix HTTP client to omit Transfer-Encoding: chunked when streaming empty request body.
    (#516 by @clue)

  • Fix: Ensure connection close handler is cleaned up for each request.
    (#515 by @WyriHaximus)

  • Update test suite and avoid unhandled promise rejections.
    (#501 and #502 by @clue)


1.9.0 (2023-04-26) Release on GitHub

This is a SECURITY and feature release for the 1.x series of ReactPHP's HTTP component.

  • Security fix: This release fixes a medium severity security issue in ReactPHP's HTTP server component
    that affects all versions between v0.8.0 and v1.8.0. All users are encouraged to upgrade immediately.
    (CVE-2023-26044 reported and fixed by @WyriHaximus)

  • Feature: Support HTTP keep-alive for HTTP client (reusing persistent connections).
    (#481, #484, #486 and #495 by @clue)

    This feature offers significant performance improvements when sending many
    requests to the same host as it avoids recreating the underlying TCP/IP
    connection and repeating the TLS handshake for secure HTTPS requests.

    $browser = new React\Http\Browser();
    // Up to 300% faster! HTTP keep-alive is enabled by default
    $response = React\Async\await($browser->get(''));
    assert($response instanceof Psr\Http\Message\ResponseInterface);
  • Feature: Add Request class to represent outgoing HTTP request message.
    (#480 by @clue)

  • Feature: Preserve request method and body for 307 Temporary Redirect and 308 Permanent Redirect.
    (#442 by @dinooo13)

  • Feature: Include buffer logic to avoid dependency on reactphp/promise-stream.
    (#482 by @clue)

  • Improve test suite and project setup and report failed assertions.
    (#478 by @clue, #487 and #491 by @WyriHaximus and #475 and #479 by @SimonFrings)

    Special thanks to Marco Squarcina (TU Wien) for reporting this and working with us to coordinate this release.
    (CVE-2022-36032 reported by @lavish and fixed by @clue)

  • Feature: Improve HTTP server performance by ~20%, reuse syscall values for clock time and socket addresses.
    (#457 and #467 by @clue)

  • Feature: Full PHP 8.2+ compatibility, refactor internal Transaction to avoid assigning dynamic properties.
    (#459 by @clue and #466 by @WyriHaximus)

  • Feature / Fix: Allow explicit Content-Length response header on HEAD requests.
    (#444 by @mrsimonbennett)

    $response = React\Http\Response\json(['message' => 'Hello wörld!']);
    $response = React\Http\Response\plaintext("Hello wörld!\n");
    $response = React\Http\Response\xml("<message>Hello wörld!</message>\n");
  • Feature: Expose all status code constants via Response class.
    (#432 by @clue)

    $response = new React\Http\Message\Response(
        React\Http\Message\Response::STATUS_OK, // 200 OK
    $response = new React\Http\Message\Response(
        React\Http\Message\Response::STATUS_NOT_FOUND, // 404 Not Found
  • Feature: Full support for PHP 8.1 release.

    to match new Socket API without nullable loop arguments.
    (#418 and #419 by @clue)

    // unchanged
    $browser = new React\Http\Browser();
    // deprecated
    $browser = new React\Http\Browser(null, $connector);
    $browser = new React\Http\Browser($loop, $connector);
    // new
    $browser = new React\Http\Browser($connector);
    $browser = new React\Http\Browser($connector, $loop);
  • Feature: Rename Server to HttpServer to avoid class name collisions and
    to avoid any ambiguities with regards to the new SocketServer API.
    (#417 and #419 by @clue)

    // deprecated
    $server = new React\Http\Server($handler);
    $server->listen(new React\Socket\Server(8080));
    // new
    $http = new React\Http\HttpServer($handler);
    $http->listen(new React\Socket\SocketServer(''));

1.4.0 (2021-07-11) Release on GitHub

A major new feature release, see release announcement.

  • Feature: Simplify usage by supporting new default loop.
    (#410 by @clue)

    // old (still supported)
    $browser = new React\Http\Browser($loop);
    $server = new React\Http\Server($loop, $handler);
    // new (using default loop)
    $browser = new React\Http\Browser();
    $server = new React\Http\Server($handler);

1.3.0 (2021-04-11) Release on GitHub

  • Feature: Support persistent connections (Connection: keep-alive).
    (#405 by @clue)

    This shows a noticeable performance improvement especially when benchmarking
    using persistent connections (which is the default pretty much everywhere).
    Together with other changes in this release, this improves benchmarking
    performance by around 100%.

  • Feature: Require Host request header for HTTP/1.1 requests.
    (#404 by @clue)

  • Minor documentation improvements.
    (#398 by @fritz-gerneth and #399 and #400 by @pavog)

  • Improve test suite, use GitHub actions for continuous integration (CI).
    (#402 by @SimonFrings)


1.2.0 (2020-12-04) Release on GitHub

  • Feature: Keep request body in memory also after consuming request body.
    (#395 by @clue)

    This means consumers can now always access the complete request body as
    detailed in the documentation. This allows building custom parsers and more
    advanced processing models without having to mess with the default parsers.

1.1.0 (2020-09-11) Release on GitHub

  • Feature: Support upcoming PHP 8 release, update to reactphp/socket v1.6 and adjust type checks for invalid chunk headers.
    (#391 by @clue)

  • Feature: Consistently resolve base URL according to HTTP specs.
    (#379 by @clue)

  • Feature / Fix: Expose Transfer-Encoding: chunked response header and fix chunked responses for HEAD requests.
    (#381 by @clue)

  • Internal refactoring to remove unneeded MessageFactory and Response classes.
    (#380 and #389 by @clue)

  • Minor documentation improvements and improve test suite, update to support PHPUnit 9.3.
    (#385 by @clue and #393 by @SimonFrings)

1.0.0 (2020-07-11) Release on GitHub

A major new feature release, see release announcement.

  • First stable LTS release, now following SemVer.
    We'd like to emphasize that this component is production ready and battle-tested.
    We plan to support all long-term support (LTS) releases for at least 24 months,
    so you have a rock-solid foundation to build on top of.

This update involves some major new features and a number of BC breaks due to
some necessary API cleanup. We've tried hard to avoid BC breaks where possible
and minimize impact otherwise. We expect that most consumers of this package
will be affected by BC breaks, but updating should take no longer than a few
minutes. See below for more details:

  • Feature: Add async HTTP client implementation.
    (#368 by @clue)

    $browser = new React\Http\Browser($loop);
    $browser->get($url)->then(function (Psr\Http\Message\ResponseInterface $response) {
        echo $response->getBody();

    The code has been imported as-is from clue/reactphp-buzz v2.9.0,
    with only minor changes to the namespace and we otherwise leave all the existing APIs unchanged.
    Upgrading from clue/reactphp-buzz v2.9.0
    to this release should be a matter of updating some namespace references only:

    // old
    $browser = new Clue\React\Buzz\Browser($loop);
    // new
    $browser = new React\Http\Browser($loop);
  • Feature / BC break: Add LoopInterface as required first constructor argument to Server and
    change Server to accept variadic middleware handlers instead of array.
    (#361 and #362 by @WyriHaximus)

    // old
    $server = new React\Http\Server($handler);
    $server = new React\Http\Server([$middleware, $handler]);
    // new
    $server = new React\Http\Server($loop, $handler);
    $server = new React\Http\Server($loop, $middleware, $handler);
  • Feature / BC break: Move Response class to React\Http\Message\Response and
    expose ServerRequest class to React\Http\Message\ServerRequest.
    (#370 by @clue)

    // old
    $response = new React\Http\Response(200, [], 'Hello!');
    // new
    $response = new React\Http\Message\Response(200, [], 'Hello!');
  • Feature / BC break: Add StreamingRequestMiddleware to stream incoming requests, mark StreamingServer as internal.
    (#367 by @clue)

    // old: advanced StreamingServer is now internal only
    $server = new React\Http\StreamingServer($handler);
    // new: use StreamingRequestMiddleware instead of StreamingServer
    $server = new React\Http\Server(
         new React\Http\Middleware\StreamingRequestMiddleware(),
  • Feature / BC break: Improve default concurrency to 1024 requests and cap default request buffer at 64K.
    (#371 by @clue)

    This improves default concurrency to 1024 requests and caps the default request buffer at 64K.
    The previous defaults resulted in just 4 concurrent requests with a request buffer of 8M.
    See Server for details on how to override these defaults.

  • Feature: Expose ReactPHP in User-Agent client-side request header and in Server server-side response header.
    (#374 by @clue)

  • Mark all classes as final to discourage inheriting from it.
    (#373 by @WyriHaximus)

  • Improve documentation and use fully-qualified class names throughout the documentation and
    add ReactPHP core team as authors to composer.json and license file.
    (#366 and #369 by @WyriHaximus and #375 by @clue)

  • Improve test suite and support skipping all online tests with --exclude-group internet.
    (#372 by @clue)

    Benchmarks suggest number of requests/s improved by ~30% for common GET requests.
    (#345, #346, #349 and #350 by @clue)

  • Add documentation and example for JSON/XML request body and
    improve documentation for concurrency and streaming requests and for error handling.
    (#341 and #342 by @clue)

    (#329 by @clue)

  • Improvement: Import global functions for better performance.
    (#330 by @WyriHaximus)


0.8.3 (2018-04-11) Release on GitHub

  • Feature: Do not pause connection stream to detect closed connections immediately.
    (#315 by @clue)

  • Feature: Keep incoming Transfer-Encoding: chunked request header.
    (#316 by @clue)

  • Feature: Reject invalid requests that contain both Content-Length and Transfer-Encoding request headers.
    (#318 by @clue)

  • Minor internal refactoring to simplify connection close logic after sending response.
    (#317 by @clue)

0.8.2 (2018-04-06) Release on GitHub

  • Fix: Do not pass $next handler to final request handler.
    (#308 by @clue)

  • Fix: Fix awaiting queued handlers when cancelling a queued handler.
    (#313 by @clue)

  • Fix: Fix Server to skip SERVER_ADDR params for Unix domain sockets (UDS).
    (#307 by @clue)

  • Documentation for PSR-15 middleware and minor documentation improvements.
    (#314 by @clue and #297, #298 and #310 by @seregazhuk)

  • Minor code improvements and micro optimizations.
    (#301 by @seregazhuk and #305 by @kalessil)

0.8.1 (2018-01-05) Release on GitHub

  • Major request handler performance improvement. Benchmarks suggest number of
    requests/s improved by more than 50% for common GET requests!
    We now avoid queuing, buffering and wrapping incoming requests in promises
    when we're below limits and instead can directly process common requests.
    (#291, #292, #293, #294 and #296 by @clue)

  • Fix: Fix concurrent invoking next middleware request handlers
    (#293 by @clue)

  • Small code improvements
    (#286 by @seregazhuk)

  • Improve test suite to be less fragile when using ext-event and
    fix test suite forward compatibility with upcoming EventLoop releases
    (#288 and #290 by @clue)


0.8.0 (2017-12-12) Release on GitHub

  • Feature / BC break: Add new Server facade that buffers and parses incoming
    HTTP requests. This provides full PSR-7 compatibility, including support for
    form submissions with POST fields and file uploads.
    The old Server has been renamed to StreamingServer for advanced usage
    and is used internally.
    (#266, #271, #281, #282, #283 and #284 by @WyriHaximus and @clue)

    // old: handle incomplete/streaming requests
    $server = new Server($handler);
    // new: handle complete, buffered and parsed requests
    // new: full PSR-7 support, including POST fields and file uploads
    $server = new Server($handler);
    // new: handle incomplete/streaming requests
    $server = new StreamingServer($handler);

    While this is technically a small BC break, this should in fact not break
    most consuming code. If you rely on the old request streaming, you can
    explicitly use the advanced StreamingServer to restore old behavior.

  • Feature: Add support for middleware request handler arrays
    (#215, #228, #229, #236, #237, #238, #246, #247, #277, #279 and #285 by @WyriHaximus, @clue and @jsor)

    // new: middleware request handler arrays
    $server = new Server(array(
        function (ServerRequestInterface $request, callable $next) {
            $request = $request->withHeader('Processed', time());
            return $next($request);
        function (ServerRequestInterface $request) {
            return new Response();
  • Feature: Add support for limiting how many next request handlers can be
    executed concurrently (LimitConcurrentRequestsMiddleware)
    (#272 by @clue and @WyriHaximus)

    // new: explicitly limit concurrency
    $server = new Server(array(
        new LimitConcurrentRequestsMiddleware(10),
  • Feature: Add support for buffering the incoming request body
    This feature mimics PHP's default behavior and respects its post_max_size
    ini setting by default and allows explicit configuration.
    (#216, #224, #263, #276 and #278 by @WyriHaximus and #235 by @andig)

    // new: buffer up to 10 requests with 8 MiB each
    $server = new StreamingServer(array(
        new LimitConcurrentRequestsMiddleware(10),
        new RequestBodyBufferMiddleware('8M'),
  • Feature: Add support for parsing form submissions with POST fields and file
    uploads (RequestBodyParserMiddleware).
    This feature mimics PHP's default behavior and respects its ini settings and
    MAX_FILE_SIZE POST fields by default and allows explicit configuration.
    (#220, #226, #252, #261, #264, #265, #267, #268, #274 by @WyriHaximus and @clue)

    // new: buffer up to 10 requests with 8 MiB each
    // and limit to 4 uploads with 2 MiB each
    $server = new StreamingServer(array(
        new LimitConcurrentRequestsMiddleware(10),
        new RequestBodyBufferMiddleware('8M'),
        new RequestBodyParserMiddleware('2M', 4)
  • Feature: Update Socket to work around sending secure HTTPS responses with PHP < 7.1.4
    (#244 by @clue)

  • Feature: Support sending same response header multiple times (e.g. Set-Cookie)
    (#248 by @clue)

  • Feature: Raise maximum request header size to 8k to match common implementations
    (#253 by @clue)

  • Improve test suite by adding forward compatibility with PHPUnit 6, test
    against PHP 7.1 and PHP 7.2 and refactor and remove risky and duplicate tests.
    (#243, #269 and #270 by @carusogabriel and #249 by @clue)

  • Minor code refactoring to move internal classes to React\Http\Io namespace
    and clean up minor code and documentation issues
    (#251 by @clue, #227 by @kalessil, #240 by @christoph-kluge, #230 by @jsor and #280 by @andig)

0.7.4 (2017-08-16) Release on GitHub

  • Improvement: Target evenement 3.0 a long side 2.0 and 1.0
    (#212 by @WyriHaximus)

0.7.3 (2017-08-14) Release on GitHub

  • Feature: Support Throwable when setting previous exception from server callback
    (#155 by @jsor)

  • Fix: Fixed URI parsing for origin-form requests that contain scheme separator
    such as /path?param=
    (#209 by @aaronbonneau)

  • Improve test suite by locking Travis distro so new defaults will not break the build
    (#211 by @clue)

0.7.2 (2017-07-04) Release on GitHub

  • Fix: Stricter check for invalid request-line in HTTP requests
    (#206 by @clue)

  • Refactor to use HTTP response reason phrases from response object
    (#205 by @clue)

0.7.1 (2017-06-17) Release on GitHub

  • Fix: Fix parsing CONNECT request without Host header
    (#201 by @clue)

  • Internal preparation for future PSR-7 UploadedFileInterface
    (#199 by @WyriHaximus)

0.7.0 (2017-05-29) Release on GitHub

  • Feature / BC break: Use PSR-7 (http-message) standard and
    Request-In-Response-Out-style request handler callback.
    Pass standard PSR-7 ServerRequestInterface and expect any standard
    PSR-7 ResponseInterface in return for the request handler callback.
    (#146 and #152 and #170 by @legionth)

    // old
    $app = function (Request $request, Response $response) {
        $response->writeHead(200, array('Content-Type' => 'text/plain'));
        $response->end("Hello world!\n");
    // new
    $app = function (ServerRequestInterface $request) {
        return new Response(
            array('Content-Type' => 'text/plain'),
            "Hello world!\n"

    A Content-Length header will automatically be included if the size can be
    determined from the response body.
    (#164 by @maciejmrozinski)

    The request handler callback will automatically make sure that responses to
    HEAD requests and certain status codes, such as 204 (No Content), never
    contain a response body.
    (#156 by @clue)

    The intermediary 100 Continue response will automatically be sent if
    demanded by a HTTP/1.1 client.
    (#144 by @legionth)

    The request handler callback can now return a standard Promise if
    processing the request needs some time, such as when querying a database.
    Similarly, the request handler may return a streaming response if the
    response body comes from a ReadableStreamInterface or its size is
    unknown in advance.

    // old
    $app = function (Request $request, Response $response) use ($db) {
        $db->query()->then(function ($result) use ($response) {
            $response->writeHead(200, array('Content-Type' => 'text/plain'));
    // new
    $app = function (ServerRequestInterface $request) use ($db) {
        return $db->query()->then(function ($result) {
            return new Response(
                array('Content-Type' => 'text/plain'),

    Pending promies and response streams will automatically be canceled once the
    client connection closes.
    (#187 and #188 by @clue)

    The ServerRequestInterface contains the full effective request URI,
    server-side parameters, query parameters and parsed cookies values as
    defined in PSR-7.
    (#167 by @clue and #174, #175 and #180 by @legionth)

    $app = function (ServerRequestInterface $request) {
        return new Response(
            array('Content-Type' => 'text/plain'),

    Advanced: Support duplex stream response for Upgrade requests such as
    Upgrade: WebSocket or custom protocols and CONNECT requests
    (#189 and #190 by @clue)

    Note that the request body will currently not be buffered and parsed by
    default, which depending on your particilar use-case, may limit
    interoperability with the PSR-7 (http-message) ecosystem.
    The provided streaming request body interfaces allow you to perform
    buffering and parsing as needed in the request handler callback.
    See also the README and examples for more details.

  • Feature / BC break: Replace request listener with callback function and
    use listen() method to support multiple listening sockets
    (#97 by @legionth and #193 by @clue)

    // old
    $server = new Server($socket);
    $server->on('request', $app);
    // new
    $server = new Server($app);
  • Feature: Support the more advanced HTTP requests, such as
    OPTIONS * HTTP/1.1 (OPTIONS method in asterisk-form),
    GET HTTP/1.1 (plain proxy requests in absolute-form),
    CONNECT HTTP/1.1 (CONNECT proxy requests in authority-form)
    and sanitize Host header value across all requests.
    (#157, #158, #161, #165, #169 and #173 by @clue)

  • Feature: Forward compatibility with Socket v1.0, v0.8, v0.7 and v0.6 and
    forward compatibility with Stream v1.0 and v0.7
    (#154, #163, #183, #184 and #191 by @clue)

  • Feature: Simplify examples to ease getting started and
    add benchmarking example
    (#151 and #162 by @clue)

  • Improve test suite by adding tests for case insensitive chunked transfer
    encoding and ignoring HHVM test failures until Travis tests work again.
    (#150 by @legionth and #185 by @clue)

0.6.0 (2017-03-09) Release on GitHub

  • Feature / BC break: The Request and Response objects now follow strict
    stream semantics and their respective methods and events.

    and #122, #123, #130, #131, #132, #142 by @clue)

    This implies that the Server now supports proper detection of the request
    message body stream, such as supporting decoding chunked transfer encoding,
    delimiting requests with an explicit Content-Length header
    and those with an empty request message body.

    These streaming semantics are compatible with previous Stream v0.5, future
    compatible with v0.5 and upcoming v0.6 versions and can be used like this:

    $http->on('request', function (Request $request, Response $response) {
        $contentLength = 0;
        $request->on('data', function ($data) use (&$contentLength) {
            $contentLength += strlen($data);
        $request->on('end', function () use ($response, &$contentLength){
            $response->writeHead(200, array('Content-Type' => 'text/plain'));
            $response->end("The length of the submitted request body is: " . $contentLength);
        // an error occured
        // e.g. on invalid chunked encoded data or an unexpected 'end' event 
        $request->on('error', function (\Exception $exception) use ($response, &$contentLength) {
            $response->writeHead(400, array('Content-Type' => 'text/plain'));
            $response->end("An error occured while reading at length: " . $contentLength);

    Similarly, the Request and Response now strictly follow the
    close() method and close event semantics.
    Closing the Request does not interrupt the underlying TCP/IP in
    order to allow still sending back a valid response message.
    Closing the Response does terminate the underlying TCP/IP
    connection in order to clean up resources.

    You should make sure to always attach a request event listener
    like above. The Server will not respond to an incoming HTTP
    request otherwise and keep the TCP/IP connection pending until the
    other side chooses to close the connection.

  • Feature: Support HTTP/1.1 and HTTP/1.0 for Request and Response.
    (#124, #125, #126, #127, #128 by @clue and #139 by @legionth)

    The outgoing Response will automatically use the same HTTP version as the
    incoming Request message and will only apply HTTP/1.1 semantics if
    applicable. This includes that the Response will automatically attach a
    Date and Connection: close header if applicable.

    This implies that the Server now automatically responds with HTTP error
    messages for invalid requests (status 400) and those exceeding internal
    request header limits (status 431).

0.5.0 (2017-02-16) Release on GitHub

  • Feature / BC break: Change Request methods to be in line with PSR-7
    (#117 by @clue)

    • Rename getQuery() to getQueryParams()
    • Rename getHttpVersion() to getProtocolVersion()
    • Change getHeaders() to always return an array of string values
      for each header
  • Feature / BC break: Update Socket component to v0.5 and
    add secure HTTPS server support
    (#90 and #119 by @clue)

    // old plaintext HTTP server
    $socket = new React\Socket\Server($loop);
    $socket->listen(8080, '');
    $http = new React\Http\Server($socket);
    // new plaintext HTTP server
    $socket = new React\Socket\Server('', $loop);
    $http = new React\Http\Server($socket);
    // new secure HTTPS server
    $socket = new React\Socket\Server('', $loop);
    $socket = new React\Socket\SecureServer($socket, $loop, array(
        'local_cert' => __DIR__ . '/localhost.pem'
    $http = new React\Http\Server($socket);
  • BC break: Mark internal APIs as internal or private and
    remove unneeded ServerInterface
    (#118 by @clue, #95 by @legionth)

0.4.4 (2017-02-13) Release on GitHub

  • Feature: Add request header accessors (à la PSR-7)
    (#103 by @clue)

    // get value of host header
    $host = $request->getHeaderLine('Host');
    // get list of all cookie headers
    $cookies = $request->getHeader('Cookie');
  • Feature: Forward pause() and resume() from Request to underlying connection
    (#110 by @clue)

    // support back-pressure when piping request into slower destination
    // manually pause/resume request
  • Fix: Fix 100-continue to be handled case-insensitive and ignore it for HTTP/1.0.
    Similarly, outgoing response headers are now handled case-insensitive, e.g
    we no longer apply chunked transfer encoding with mixed-case Content-Length.
    (#107 by @clue)

    // now handled case-insensitive
    // now works just like properly-cased header
    $response->writeHead($status, array('content-length' => 0));
  • Fix: Do not emit empty data events and ignore empty writes in order to
    not mess up chunked transfer encoding
    (#108 and #112 by @clue)
