Wed, 01 Sep 2004 21:08:27 -0000

Im on holiday for 2 weeks, so I wont be updating anything till 2 weeks from posting of this message.

Please report any errors or problems to the site.

I understand HTTP 1.1 doesnt work correctly for all sites at the moment, but I hope to fix that soon.

Please stay tuned.....

0.1.7 Beta Release

Fri, 27 Aug 2004 13:50:24 -0000

There has been some ongoing testing on MacOSx by Michael Walker.

Most of the problems are due to HTTP 1.1 not being fully supported as yet (default used by FireFox, etc.)

There was a problem using http://webstretch as the admin pages on OSx with Safari, as it tried to do a DNS lookup before submitting to the proxy. This has been fixed by allowing the user to switch to using the IP address of the proxy instead of http://webstretch. See the readme.txt file for details (available in the zip file).

Remember - this software is still in beta!

Please provide feedback if you can.

OK, Ive installed FireFox and noticed that webstretch is fairly slow compared to how it acts with IE. This is probably due to how each browser decides to queue requests and assign them to threads before rendering. I will be reworking webstretch to cope with this.

Next release - Coming soon...

Wed, 21 Jul 2004 08:05:39 -0000

Will aim to add at least some of the following soon...

* SSL support

* Ability to alter parameters from a list of possible test values (e.g. large buffers to test for overflows, parameters to try to break SQL, password breakers (SQL which may lead to a value always being true), etc.

* Cookie editor

* etc

You can click on the icon at the file release area to automatically have an email sent to you when any new release is made.

Minor Release 0.1.4

You can now find release 0.1.4 on the web site, available for download.

I have altered the interface slightly and added a method of finding hidden areas in web sites -see the request section once installed (try'll find stuff like '')

Keeping checking back for updates. You can easily use the sourceforge site to keep automatically updated if any new releases occur.

Will aim to add a method for finding hidden areas in a web site.
