Release Notes: HTTP status codes are now correctly interpreted (if selected).
Release Notes: measured latency can now be split into the time to connect and the time to exchange a request with the HTTP server. Showing the status-code no longer garbles the screen.
Release Notes: A big memory leak in the SSL code was fixed. An audible ping mode was added.
Release Notes: One can now set the interface through which the requests will be sent (bind to it).
Release Notes: httping was fixed to work with sites that use the Apache mod_security module.
Release Notes: One can now let HTTPing emit the X509 key certificate's MD5 fingerprint when connecting to an SSL host.
Release Notes: When using the "-b" switch, a summary is displayed with the minimum, the maximum, and the average transfer speed. One can now limit the number of bytes transferred for the BPS calculation. A man page was added.
Release Notes: HTTPing can now also display the transfer speed in KB/s.
Release Notes: One can now also do a GET instead of a HEAD request so that the transfer time of the page is also measured (not just the latency of the Web server and the network).
Release Notes: The tool can now be used as a Nagios plugin, and DNS lookups can be taken out of the main loop, which makes it possible to measure the latency without the DNS overhead. A handle leak and a 'machine readable output' segfault were fixed. 'resolve once' no longer counts a successful resolution as an error.
