  |   Lukas Pokorny

Version 2020 R4 brings some useful enhancements and resolves several issues, mostly in the shared libraries.

Fully tested on .NET 5.0 RC1

Rebex assemblies targeting .NET Standard 2.1 have been fully tested on .NET 5.0 RC1 and are suitable to be used in production on Microsoft's latest .NET platform.

This release adds HttpRequest.CookieContainer and HttpResponse.Cookies properties, making cookie manipulation easier.
