+2.23.0 (2020-02-19)
+-------------------
+
+**Improvements**
+
+- Remove defunct reference to `prefetch` in Session `__attrs__` (#5110)
+
+**Bugfixes**
+
+- Requests no longer outputs password in basic auth usage warning. (#5099)
+
+**Dependencies**
+
+- Pinning for `chardet` and `idna` now uses major version instead of minor.
+  This hopefully reduces the need for releases everytime a dependency is updated.
