Dear progressive users,

I inform you of the release of DeleGate/6.0.3 (in alpha status)
available at:

  SITE: ftp://ftp.etl.go.jp/pub/DeleGate/alpha/
  FILE: delegate6.0.3.tar.gz

  SIZE: 871784 bytes
  MD5:  843d64e8c85b7b3627bedcbbb21d60e8

See the README file in the distribution file summarizing significant
(incompatible) changes from older versions.

[NEW]
 + HTTP: made valid-HTTP-methods customizable (by HTTPCONF=methods:methodList)
 + HTTP: introduced immediate rejection of invalid/forbidden method request
 + CFI: introduced CFI program (Filter:xxx or CGI:yyy.cgi) search in LIBPATH
 + cache: introduced CACHE="do" for automatic creation of CACHEDIR at start

[CHANGE]
 + HTTP: disabled old style DeleGate original proxying by "=@="
 + NNTP: disabled XOVER emulation ("emulate=xover" MountOpt. if necesssary)

[FIX]
 + security: fixed some of possible buffer overflows
 + porting: revival of HTTP proxy on OS/2 (since 5.9.4)
 + HTTP: fixed SEGV on long (maybe non-) scheme in URL
 + HTTP: fixed SEGV on large chunk from server (6.0.0)
 + HTTP: fixed Forbidden for POST method in keep-alive (6.0.0)
 + HTTP: fixed not to pass chunked data to CFI filter program

Cheers,
Yutaka
