Cambios en Privoxy 3.0.30

Announcing Privoxy 3.0.30 stable

Privoxy 3.0.30 stable fixes a couple of bugs and introduces
a few new features.

ChangeLog for Privoxy 3.0.30

- Bug fixes:
  - Check the actual URL for redirects when https inspecting requests.
    Previously Privoxy would only check the path which resulted in
    rewrite results being rejected as invalid URLs.
    Reported by withoutname in #1736.
  - Let the hide-referrer code tolerate Referer headers with https:// URLs.
    Previously they would always be treated like a changed host.
  - Use the https headers if the show-request handler is reached through
    https://. Previously Privoxy would use the http headers which
    may be empty on a reused connection.
  - Make CGI_PREFIX protocol-relative when building with FEATURE_HTTPS_INSPECTION.
    This unbreaks (at least) whose
    buttons would previously use a http:// URL resulting in browser warnings.
  - Support using https-inspection and client-header-order at the same time.
    Previously Privoxy would crash.
    Reported by: Kai Raven
  - Properly reject rewrites from http to https as they currently
    aren't supported. Previously Privoxy would wait for the client
    to establish an encrypted connection which obviously would not happen.
  - When https inspection is enabled and Privoxy has been compiled with
    FEATURE_GRACEFUL_TERMINATION (not recommended for production builds),
    the TLS backend resources are free'd later on and only if no active
    connections are left. Prevents crashes when exiting "gracefully" at the
    wrong time.
  - Let the uninstall target remove the config file even if DESTDIR
    is set and properly announce the deletion of the configuration files.

- General improvements:
  - Allow to rewrite the request destination for https-inspected
    requests behind the client's back. The documentation already sort
    of claimed that it was supported by not especially mentioning that
    it didn't work for https-inspected requests.
    Fixes SF bug #923 reported by withoutname.
  - Add support for filtering client request bodies by using
    CLIENT-BODY-FILTER filters which can be enabled with the
    client-body-filter action.
    Patch submitted by Maxim Antonov.

  - Add the new action suppress-tag{} which can be used to prevent
    a tagger from adding a tag. Patch submitted by Maxim Antonov.
    Sponsored by: Robert Klemme
  - Gracefully handle existing website keys without matching certificates.
    This can happen if Privoxy was previously running with an invalid
    TLS configuration that didn't allow it to create a certificate.
  - Recycle debug bit 4 for Tagging-related messages.
  - Improve the message shown when the client-tags CGI page
    is requested with no tags configured.
  - Shorten the 'donate' and 'participate' links used by templates
    using redirects. Currently the redirects lead to the FAQ entries
    but in the future we may want to relocate the content and using
    redirects makes this more convenient.
  - Log an error when a PCRE-HOST-PATTERN is used with
    FEATURE_PCRE_HOST_PATTERNS disabled. Don't treat this a
    fatal error so the regression tests can be used with and
  - The code compiles with older C compilers again.
  - The chdir() return code is checked to fix a compiler warning.
  - The packages feed has been removed from the source tarball.
    It's usually out of date when the source tarball is generated
    for the release.
  - Fixed harmless compiler warnings from GCC9 with -D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2.
  - windows: Remove obsolete '$(DEST)/doc/images' target.
  - windows: Install the images referenced in the user manual.
  - Remove obsolete 'gnu_regex.@OBJEXT@' target.
  - When installing from the GNUMAkefile, don't create an 'images'
    directory which is no longer used. The images were relocated to
    the user-manual directory years ago.
  - Add new FEATURES to the show-status page and resort list.
  - Remove unused variable in the OpenSSL-specific code.
  - Update bug tracker URL in cgi_error_unknown().
  - Saved a couple of memory allocations when sorting client headers.
  - Improved a couple of error messages.
  - Saved memory allocations when using OpenSSL and checking if a
    key already exists.
  - The configure script will bail out if OpenSSL and mbedTLS are
    enabled at the same time.
  - Log a message right before exiting gracefully.
  - A couple of structures have been rearranged to require slightly
    less memory.
  - When https inspection is enabled and the certificate is invalid
    the error message is now sent with status code 403 instead of 200.
  - The Slackware rc script template has been renamed to
    slackware/ to silence complaints when building
    Debian packages.
  - When building with MbedTLS support, mbedtls_md5_ret() is used
    instead of mbedtls_md5() which is deprecated and causes a warning
    on Debian GNU/Linux.

- Action file improvements:
  - Block requests to
  - Unblock
  - Disable fast-redirects for
  - Disable fast-redirects for

- Filter file improvements:
  - A allow-autocompletion filter has been added which changes
    autocomplete="off" to "on" on input fields to allow autocompletion.
    Requested by Jamie Zawinski in #370.
    Filter based on a submission by Aaron Linville.
  - Added an imdb filter.
  - Added a sourceforge filter that reduces the amount of ads
    for proprietary software.
  - Added a github filter that removes the annoying "Sign-Up"
    banner and the Cookie disclaimer.
  - Removed a duplicated pcrs command from the js-annoyances filter.
  - The crude-parental filter now provides a short reason when blocking,
    inserts a link to Privoxy's webinterface and adds a new line at
    the end of the generated page.

- Privoxy-Log-Parser:
  - Highlight a few more messages.
  - Add a handler for tagging messages.
  - Properly deal with 'Certificate error' crunches
    Previously the error description was highlighted as 'host'.
  - Log truncated LOG_LEVEL_CLF messages more gracefully
    and note that the statistics will be imprecise.
  - Fixed perldoc typo.
  - Bump version to 0.9.2.

- Privoxy-Regression-Test:
  - Use as default Privoxy address
    unless http_proxy is set through the environment.
  - Add a --privoxy-cgi-prefix option that specifies the prefix
    to use when building URLs that are supposed to reach Privoxy's
    CGI interface. If it's not set, http://p.p/ is used, which is
    supposed to work with the default Privoxy configuration.
    If Privoxy has been built with FEATURE_HTTPS_INSPECTION enabled,
    and if https inspection is activated with the +https-inspection
    action, this option can be used with "https://p.p/" provided the
    system running Privoxy-Regression-Test has been configured to
    trust the certificate used by Privoxy.
    Note that there are currently two tests in the official
    regression-tests.action file that are expected to fail
    when using "https://p.p/" as privoxy-cgi-prefix.
  - Skip the connection-established response in get_status_code()
    when looking for the status code with a CGI prefix
    that starts with https://. We care about the status code
    sent by the impersonated web server.
  - Use --proxy-header when using a CGI prefix with https://
    and a "Host:" header.
  - Allow '|' in tokens and values to allow tag patterns like
  - When get_cgi_page_or_else() fails, include the URL of the
    requested page in the log message.
  - Added a --check-bad-ssl option that can be used to verify that
    Privoxy detects certificate problems when accessing the test
    sites from
  - Bumped version to 0.7.2

- uagen:
  - Update example output.

  - Bumped version to 1.2.2.

 - User documentation:
  - Remove reference to 'How to Report Bugs Effectively'.
    It was only rendered as text without URL in the README anyway
    and there's no indication that users read it ...
  - Let the dok-readme target fix the location embedded into the
    README file. This used to be done by CVS but since the git migration
    it has to be done through other means.
  - Remove 'experimental' warning for client-specific-tag-related directives.
    They seem to work reliably and there is no obvious reason
    why we would change the syntax in the near future.
  - Describe how to check if Privoxy has been built with
  - Add a link to the trusted-cas-file documentation
    that explains how the user can create the file herself.
  - Don't explicitly mention the license for the code coming from
    'Anonymous Coders' and Junkbusters. It's obviously licensed under
    the GNU GPL like the rest of Privoxy or we wouldn't be allowed to
    distribute it.
  - Update the +hide-user-agent example with uagen output.
  - Slightly improve the wording of the ca-key-file documentation.
  - Explicitly mention Windows 10 as supported so search engines and
    users looking for it can find it.
  - Import a bunch of contributors from the ChangeLog.
  - Remove obsolete doc/gpl.html.
  - Upgrade a couple of links to https://.
  - Don't prefer the SourceForge patch tracker over the
    privoxy-devel mailing list. While at it, link to the
    SourceForge patch tracker.
  - Mention http-inspection in the 'my browser warns me about
    unauthenticated content' FAQ entry.
  - Simplify the 'Is there is a license or fee?' FAQ entry.
  - Add another +redirect{} example.
  - Explicitly mention that interested sponsors should include
    the link target in their first mail.
  - Clarify that only Privoxy team members can object to new sponsors
    and link to the list of current team members.
  - Note that sponsor URLs may not contain keyword spam.
  - Garbage collect doc/webserver/images which isn't referenced anymore.
  - Update the method to reach the proxy settings in Firefox.
  - Update proxy_setup.jpg description to refer to Firefox.
  - Regenerate proxy_setup.jpg with a more recent Firefox (78.0).
  - Regenerate files-in-use.jpg without obsolete standard.action
    with modern colors and a slightly better quality.
  - Update URL to the actionsfile tracker.
  - Update a support request URL.
  - Rephrase the 'Can Privoxy run as service' FAQ entry and
    remove an obsolete paragraph.
  - Let the 'Where can I get updated Actions Files?' entry link to
    the gitweb version of default.action.master.
  - Update a link to the default.action file.
  - Update URLs for trackers and mailing lists.
  - Replace CVS reference with git.
  - Mention regression-tests.action in the config file.
  - Explicitly mention in the config file that access to the
    CA key should be limited to Privoxy.
  - List more client-specific-tag examples for inspiration.
  - Add additional headers to the client-header-order example.
  - Note that actions aren't updated after rewrites.
  - Explicitly mention that upgrading from http to https with
    a client-header filter is not supported
  - Note that protocol and host have to be added when rewriting
    the destination host for https-inspected requests.
  - Explicitly mention that the CA key is used to sign certificates.
  - Put openssl command in 'command' tags.
  - The man page has been moved from section 1 to man section 8.

- Developer manual:
  - Flesh out the build instructions for Debian.
  - Remove the packaging instructions for RPM-based systems.
    They don't work and we don't release RPM packages anymore anyway.
  - Remove the packaging instructions for Solaris.
    They don't work and we don't release Solaris packages anymore anyway.
  - Update the suggested subject for the announce mails.
  - Update upload instructions. is no longer functional.
  - Remove a couple of package-dependent upload instructions
    that don't actually work.
  - Remove 'cd current' that no longer works.
  - Add regression-tests.action to the list of files that should be installed.
  - Stop claiming that there are text versions of the manuals.
    We stopped building them in 2008 (9ed36a3c5e6f12).
  - Note that the 'webserver' target creates the link needed for the user-manual.
  - Suggest to use the master branch as reference when creating
    the ChangeLog so the steps work when the current branch differs
    from master which is likely as the developer manual
    suggests to use a local branch for development.
  - Add the -s flag to the suggested 'git tag' command.  We prefer signed tags.
  - Mention that merges into 'master' should be avoided.

  - Mark the documentation for the Mac OS X installers as out of date and
    change the SCM name back to CVS.
  - Fix the location of the installer modules for Mac OS X.
    They are not actually available through git (yet).
  - Don't speak of Privoxy version 3 in the past tense.
  - Update the list of programs required for the release process.
  - Update description of the webserver target which uses ssh, not scp.
  - Remove obsolete reference to

- Tests:
  - Add another hide-referrer{conditional-block} test.

    that expected an acceptable header to be forged.
  - Fix a hide-referrer{conditional-block} test
    that expected an acceptable Referer to be removed.
  - Explain why the "Set Header = Host:" test is
    expected to fail when using a CGI prefix that starts with "https://".
  - Explain why a connection-sharing test is known to fail
    when using "https://p.p/" as CGI prefix.
  - Add a link to Privoxy-Regression-Test to regression-tests.action
    in case it isn't packaged.
