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: One can now set the interface through which the requests will be sent (bind to it).
Release Notes: One can now let HTTPing emit the X509 key certificate's MD5 fingerprint when connecting to an SSL host.
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.
Release Notes: This release makes the "User-Agent" request header configurable and adds a switch for setting a "Referer" request header field. httping now compiles on OpenBSD.
Release Notes: Pinging of non-SSL hosts no longer worked in 0.0.9. This is now fixed. A "machine readable output" mode has been added.
Release Notes: SSL support has been added.
Release Notes: One can now also set a timeout value for servers that allow connections but then get silent. The statistics when no successful connections were made have been fixed.
