    🔄 Change default Client API to async. The previous blocking client API is avaialble at reqwest::blocking.

    🔄 Change to no longer send a default User-Agent header. Add one via ClientBuilder::user_agent().

    🔄 Change to enable system/environment proxy detection by default.

    🔄 Change default-tls feature to only include ClientBuilder options that both native-tls and rustls support.

    🔄 Change default feature set to reduce unnecessary dependencies. Most features are disabled by default:

    • blocking: The reqwest::blocking (synchronous) client API.
    • cookies: Cookie store support.
    • gzip: Automatic response body decompression.
    • json: Request and response JSON body methods.

    - stream: futures::Stream support.

    🔄 Change Error internal design, removing several Error::is_* inspector methods.

    🔄 Change Redirect API:

    • Renamed types to be part of the redirect module (for example, reqwest::RedirectPolicy is now reqwest::redirect::Policy).
    • Removed loop_detected and too_many_redirect methods from redirect::Attempt, replaced with a generic error method.

    - The default policy no longer specifically looks for redirect loops (but they should be caught by the maximum limit).

    🛠 Fix checking HTTP_PROXY environment variable if it the environment is from a CGI script.

    🛠 Fix removal of username/password of parsed proxy URL.

    ⚡️ Update url to v2.0.
