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: This version fixes some smaller bugs or omissions, and further improves the management Web interface.
Release Notes: This release introduces dispatch algorithms by client IP (hashed or direct) and a flag to avoid "lingering" sockets. A portability issue for 64-bit Linux has been solved.
Release Notes: Crossroads was ported to Solaris 10. Minor logging-related enhancements were made. In HTTP mode, "HTTP/1.x 3xx" responses (such as "page not modified") are parsed correctly and subject to full header inspection.
Release Notes: This release changes the license of Crossroads to the GPL V3. Furthermore, there are small code changes in the Web front end (crossroads-mgr).
Release Notes: This release adds support for managing a pool of virtual back-ends, where the number of back-end workers and their IP addresses are not known a priori. Worker IPs can be assigned at runtime through the command line or via the Web front-end. Initial states can be specified in the configuration. There is no longer a limitation on the number of back-ends per service. The status overview in XML reports counts of back-ends per state. The documentation was updated.
Release Notes: The daemon sec has been moved to a separate program, controlled via the main crossroads binary. Functions such as configuration parsing and status reporting are thereby kept out of the daemon, reducing the footprint. The status reporter can now output in XML for easier parsing and rendering in Web pages.
Release Notes: When balancing HTTP in "sticky" mode, sessions will continue to go to backends that are marked "down" (while new sessions will be forwarded to other backends). This permits one to take backends gracefully out of service. Furthermore, bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: The -s flag (for "sloppy" TCP port binding) was implemented. A small bug was fixed in "crossroads restart".
Release Notes: This stable release features minor documentation fixes and optimizations.
