Version 1.1

Replacement for urlread. Example functions in the urlread2 file show how to make equivalent calls as are made in urlread. Helper functions can be written (some provided) to provide additional functionality without always needing to modify the urlread2 code.

Specific improvements:
- improved unicode support
- improved binary retrieval support
- request and response header access
- response status access
