Web Secretary

Web Secretary is Webpage change notification (monitoring) software. It goes beyond the normal functions offered by such software by detecting changes based on content analysis, making sure that it's not just HTML that changed, but actual content. You can tell it what to ignore in the page (hit counters and such), and it can mail you the document with the changes highlighted or load the highlighted page in a browser.

Release Notes: This release adds support for If-Modified-Since and keep last modified data to reduce bandwidth usage by not retrieving the file at all if it hasn't changed. It adds a meta tag to keep the charset as provided by the HTTP server. This enables the mail reader to later show the file with the correct encoding. Bug #10980 in Savannah has been fixed. If url.list is missing, it will no longer hang, but instead report to the user and exit. Bug #349024 in Debian has been fixed. There are some other small fixes.
