        Release Notes: This version fixes a bug where network sockets would be consumed but not closed. The bug was triggered in some situations where Crossroads could not connect to a previously available back end.

              Release Notes: This version introduces the ability to rewrite Host: headers in HTTP mode with the hostname of a back end to which Crossroads is dispatching. The Activity overview of the Web interface now shows the number of used file descriptors and the maximum limit. A number of bugs were fixed and code parts were slightly reworked.

                  Release Notes: The balancer control script xrctl was rewritten to use an XML configuration file describing all services. The management Web interface is much richer, allowing modification of more properties of the balancer and allowing addition or deletion of back ends. DOS protection was extended to delay or block client IP addresses that exceed a connection threshold. Resolved back end host names are cached to ease the load on DNS. Back end verification supports HTTP GET or TCP connects to ports other than the back end itself. Portability issues for gcc 3.4, Solaris, and 64-bit systems were solved.

                    Release Notes: This is a stable release. New features include DOS protection capabilities, bugfixes, a "weighted-load" dispatching mode, a richer management Web interface, and a rewritten, optimized HTTP dispatcher which runs 40-50% faster.
