Release Notes: The limit on the length of usernames and passwords has been increased. The possible buffer overflow in the case of very long usernames/password has been patched. A troubleshooting guide has been added.
Release Notes: The uninitialized variable bug, which caused transconnect not to work on some of the machines was fixed. The default mode was changed to Quiet.
Release Notes: The config file name can now be specified as an environment variable. The check for non-TCP connections has been moved so that it fails before any other checks. The config file is now closed after reading. This solves a mysterious bug. A lot of code documentation has been added.
Release Notes: The User-Agent header is now included in Proxy Request. Keep-Alive and no-cache features were added in Proxy Request. make install now backs up the old configuration file. An appropriate message from the server is displayed if the connection fails.
