Just posted, adds support for SOAP 1.2, and comes with PocketHTTP v1.1

If you've had problems in the past getting SwA to work between SOAP::Lite and PocketSOAP, then checkout this recent post to the SOAP::Lite list that explains how to get SOAP::Lite up and running with the correct MIME header line endings.

So I've read Scoble's interview which covers WinFS and also read about WinFS in Visual Studio mag but I still don't get it, In both cases it seems that to be useful the user will have to tag the files with meta data, but you only have to look at Office (which has had that for years with the summary property page) to see how unsuccessful its going to be. Why will tagging 100 photos with 'Wedding' make things magically better than having the photo's in a 'Wedding' directory ? I'm not seeing how WinFS is going to make my life (as a user not a developer) any better, what am I missing ?

The as always switched on folks at IsMobile spotted a problem with the recent PocketHTTP v1.1 installer for the PocketPC, now fixed, thanks guys!

Just released a new version of PocketHTTP, the 2 major changes are adding gzip support (to the existing deflate support), and fixing the problem with SSL on PocketPC 2003 (the one where the PocketPC 2003 folks decide to no longer allow non blocking sockets with SSL).
