Release Notes: Support for SNI via multiple Cert directives. A pre-defined number of threads for better performance on small hardware. Translation of hexadecimal characters in the URL for pattern matching. Support for a "Disabled" directive in the configuration. More detailed error logging. Allows multiple AddHeader directives.
Release Notes: New features include support for HTTPS back-end servers, full support for DH key exchange, an "include" directive in configuration files, support for separate connection time-out, much improved auto-configuration and Make, and flags to enable or disable optional libraries. A bunch of minor bugs were fixed. Performance was improved.
Release Notes: The PARM session type was added for tracking based on HTTP parameter. Beware that the old PARM session type is now called URL, so configuration files must be changed. Full support for IPv6 was added. poundctl can now show status as an XML file. A shutdown grace period was added (Pound still accepts requests for existing sessions, but nothing else). A buch of smaller changes and bugs were fixed.
Release Notes: This release introduces some more configuration options (such as shutdown grace period and service names) Enhancements were made to poundctl functionality. The code was reorganized and some bugs were fixes. Major tweaking of the dynamic rescaling code was done.
Release Notes: This release added emergency back-ends, a new control program, support for MSRPC, dynamic rescaling of back-end priorities, RewriteDestination (for SVN support), much improved logging and autoconf, and much better performance (TCP_NODELAY, better malloc). Some minor problems with autoconf detection were fixed and the code was cleaned up.
Release Notes: This is primarily a bugfix and performance enhancements release. It enhances support for pcre and hoard and location rewriting. It removes all static buffers, fixes some memory leaks, and fixes issues in session tracking and URL and header checking.
Release Notes: This is the first release in the 2.x series. Major changes in this version include a new configuration file syntax, the ability to define listener-specific back-ends, a new type of back-end: the redirector (allowing you to respond with a redirect without involving any back-end server), and session tracking on a specific Header. Most "secondary" properties (such as error messages, client time-out, etc.) are now private to listeners. HAport has an optional address, different from the main back-end.
Release Notes: This is the last release of the 1.x series. The log facility and daemon mode are now run-time options rather than compile time. User name is correctly logged. Minor bugfixes were made, most importantly in the poll() code.
Release Notes: This is mostly a maintenance release. New features include full support for CRL checking and additional flags for config file checking and .pid file control. A potential buffer overflow problem and a session-check locking issue were fixed. Better handling of MSIE connections was implemented.
Release Notes: Major issues were fixed. A bug which occurred if there were multiple listening ports or addresses was fixed. A memory leak in SSL was plugged. stdout is flushed (if used) after each log message. A problem with delays in 302 without content was fixed. A problem with time-outs in HTTPS was fixed. New features include support for non-blocking connect(2), support for 414 - Request URI too long, a RedirectRewrite directive to prevent redirect changes, support for NoHTTPS11 value 2 (for MSIE clients only), and support for HTTPSHeaders 3 (no verify).
