Release Notes: This release fixes an occasional crash inside the prefetch thread, fixes a bug in transparent proxying, corrects the way the proxy daemonizes itself, corrects file permissions, and adds a new IP address filtering feature.
Release Notes: This version includes a major design overhaul, which moves most of the code into C++ classes. It also adds many features, bugfixes, and miscellaneous enhancements.
Release Notes: A bug that prevented headers sent by the server (such as Set-Cookie) that aren't handled internally by the proxy from being passed onto the client was fixed. A memory corruption bug due to the wrong amount of memory being allocated for mime filtering entries was fixed. A bug that prevented the proxy from using a forwarding proxy with no ICP type was fixed. A port range option was added to profile entries. Detection of content encoding was fixed to handle servers that return multiple types.
Release Notes: Support for ICP (Internet cache protocol) was added, making it possible to arrange several proxies in a hierarchy and share cached objects. It is now possible to specify multiple directories for cached objects to be stored. The 'Host' and 'File' options in most configuration sections were removed in favor of enabling/ disable profiles based on the URL requested. A workaround was added for a bug triggered by improper headers sent by Apache 1.3 when a tar.gz file was requested by a client that doesn't support gzip compression.
Release Notes: A new feature was added that allows profiles to be added or removed from the current request based on the URL. This makes it much easier to enable or disable groups of entries in other sections together for certain sites.
Release Notes: A journal is now kept of all changes made to the cache, eliminating the need to scan the directory structure on startup. Some issues with caching on non-Linux systems were fixed. A new option was added to indicate to Web sites that it's acceptable to compress the content, which is buffered and decompresssed if the client doesn't support it. The proxy can now serve it's own proxy.pac file to easily configure browsers.
Release Notes: Support for PAM authentication was added, the performance of the cache was greatly improved and should now scale much better, and many small bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: A new prefetching feature was added, which allows content such as images to be downloaded in the background in anticipation that the Web browser will soon request it. Support was added for deflate encoding, and support for gzip encoding was improved.
Release Notes: The CONNECT method can now be used when forwarding HTTP requests through another proxy server, some HTTP 1.1 conformance issues have been resolved, and a few bugs have been fixed.
Release Notes: Bandwidth usage during any time period can now be limited, and several bugs were fixed.
