This version cleans up some remaining bugs in the 3.1.0 release. As the latest stable release of ht://Dig, it is recommended for all production servers.

Release notes for htdig-3.1.0 9 Feb 1999
This version marks the "full release" of version 3.1.0. Naturally, this version adds a few new feature and fixes a large number of remaining bugs. This version is the latest stable release of ht://Dig and is recommended for all production servers for current bug-fixes and oft-requested features.

NOTE: You must rebuild your databases from scratch after updating to this version. Several database-related bugs were fixed and will remain unless you rebuild from scratch. We're sorry for any inconvenience.

Release notes for htdig-3.1.0b4 22 Dec 1998
This version fixes a security hole in htnotify. The hole has been present in previous versions but was inadevertently made worse in the 3.1.0 beta releases. Malicious users could contstruct pages that executed commands running under the shell of the user running htnotify. It is highly recommended that users of previous versions switch to this release.

Release notes for htdig-3.1.0b3 15 Dec 1998
This version adds only a few features and a significant number of bug fixes. This version has been pretty thoroughly tested. Though there are a few remaining issues, it is hoped that this will be near the end of the beta releases before version 3.1.0. Note that it's recommended to update your databases to eliminate the possibility of subtle changes in the database format.

Release notes for htdig-3.1.0b2 1 Nov 1998
This version adds a few minor features as well as many bugfixes. It is still considered beta as some bug reports have not been fully examined.


Release notes for htdig-3.1.0b1 8 Sep 1998
This version adds several major new features as well as some bug-fixes. It is considered a beta release since it has only seen limited testing.

It is extremely important that you rebuild all your databases made with previous versions. This version no longer uses the GDBM database format and databases produced with it will be incompatible with other versions. Do not blame me for anything if you didn't do this. You have been warned...


Release notes for htdig-3.0.8b2 15 Aug 1997
This new version contains most of the patches that Pasi Eronen has posted to the list plus some other random fixes.

Release notes for htdig-3.0.8b1 27-Apr-1997
I consider this a beta release since I have not had time to test everything. Use at your own risk...

Release notes for htdig-3.0.7 12-Jan-1997
More bug fixes and some minor new functionality. Hopefully, I'll be able to finish up work on version 3.1 at some point in the near future.
I have recently received some more patches for various things, but I have not incorporated those, yet. Next version.

Release notes for htdig-3.0.6 26-Oct-1996
Just a single bug fix and one additional feature in this release.

Release notes for htdig-3.0.5 13-Oct-1996
This release consists of more bug fixes.
I want to thank Elliot Lee <sopwith@cuc.edu> for his help with tracking down several bugs.

Release notes for htdig-3.0.4 2-Sep-1996
The previous version failed to build under Linux. This should be fixed now.

Release notes for htdig-3.0.3 2-Sep-1996
Bugs bugs bugs... Will they ever all be found?

NOTE: I made extensive changes to the htdig.conf file that gets installed. I would advise you to remove or rename your existing htdig.conf and let the installation process create a new one for you that you can then modify.

Also, since the rundig script has changed, you should remove the old one before installing ht://Dig. (The installation will refuse to overwrite existing files...)

Release notes for htdig-3.0.2 22-Aug-1996
More bug fixes.

Release notes for htdig-3.0 17-Jul-1996
I decided to make this the official 3.0 release.

It is extremely important that you remove all traces of earlier beta versions of the software before installing this version or that you install in a completely different location. Do not blame me for anything if you didn't do this. You have been warned...
