Description An Ngo 2015-02-17 15:06:27 UTC

The Apple docs say that we can pass nil to disable caching in NSUrlSessionConfiguration.(https://developer.apple.com/library/ios/documentation/Foundation/Reference/NSURLSessionConfiguration_class/index.html#//apple_ref/occ/instp/NSURLSessionConfiguration/URLCache). 

But when I pass null to URLCache property, the runtimes throw exception. I don't want the API to cache, because I have my own cache system.

I reviewed the type and `nil` is also acceptable on two other properties (also fixed).
Thanks for the bug report!
