Release Notes: Documentation updates, included missing .sql files in the distribution.
Release Notes: This release adds support for SQLite databases (these are fast and simple). There are a few bugfixes and feature enhancements.
Release Notes: Multiple outgoing IP addresses are supported to help with whois servers that block based on queries per IP address. Support was added for PostgreSQL in addition to MySQL for database features. Support for mod_perl was improved, and support for non-standard whois servers (like whois.denic.de) was improved.
Release Notes: This is a beta release of BW Whois 4.0. New features include normalized XML output, a modular output framework with an XML-based filter system for parsing different registrar whois formats, and new support for PostgreSQL (in addition to the existing MySQL support).
Release Notes: This update fixes an incompatibility with the new .ORG registry's "thin" whois server. There are also a few other bugfixes and minor feature improvements.
Release Notes: A logging feature was added. This is useful, especially in a multi-user or public configuration, to keep track of how many requests you are sending to downstream whois servers. A couple of small bugfixes were also made, and the documentation was cleaned up so it prints nicer.
Release Notes: This version adds separate output for "not found" domains, along with a few more bugfixes, updates to the "stripdisclaimer" configuration file, and a few syntax modifications to appease Perl 5.8.
Release Notes: The stripheaders feature was broken by a recent trend to move disclaimers to the end of results. The feature has been rewritten from scratch and now uses a configuration file to better support whatever the registrars throw at it. A few bugfixes were also made.
Release Notes: This major new release has important improvements for reliabiltiy and security, especially in CGI mode to prevent harvesting and hijacking. A new caching feature is also available to improve performance and prevent overloading downstream whois servers. There are many other new features, but the program will still run as a simple commandline whois if that's all that you need it for.
Release Notes: This release includes a number of small bugfixes, most significantly a workaround for the broken manner in which the new IIS hands POST data to Perl.
