*

Two new actions server-header-tagger and client-header-tagger that can be used to create arbitrary "tags" based on client and server headers. These "tags" can then subsequently be used to control the other actions used for the current request, greatly increasing Privoxy's flexibility and selectivity. See tag patterns for more information on tags.
*

Header filtering is done with dedicated header filters now. As a result the actions "filter-client-headers" and "filter-server-headers" that were introduced with Privoxy 3.0.5 to apply content filters to the headers have been removed. See the new actions server-header-filter and client-header-filter for details.
*

There are four new options for the main config file:

o

allow-cgi-request-crunching which allows requests for Privoxy's internal CGI pages to be blocked, redirected or (un)trusted like ordinary requests.
o

split-large-forms that will work around a browser bug that caused IE6 and IE7 to ignore the Submit button on the Privoxy's edit-actions-for-url CGI page.
o

accept-intercepted-requests which allows to combine Privoxy with any packet filter to create an intercepting proxy for HTTP/1.1 requests (and for HTTP/1.0 requests with Host header set). This means clients can be forced to use Privoxy even if their proxy settings are configured differently.
o

templdir to designate an alternate location for Privoxy's locally customized CGI templates so that these are not overwritten during upgrades.
*

A new command line option --pre-chroot-nslookup hostname to initialize the resolver library before chroot'ing. On some systems this reduces the number of files that must be copied into the chroot tree. (Patch provided by Stephen Gildea)
*

The forward-override action allows changing of the forwarding settings through the actions files. Combined with tags, this allows to choose the forwarder based on client headers like the User-Agent, or the request origin.
*

The redirect action can now use regular expression substitutions against the original URL.
*

zlib support is now available as a compile time option to filter compressed content. Patch provided by Wil Mahan.
*

Improve various filters, and add new ones.
*

Include support for RFC 3253 so that Subversion works with Privoxy. Patch provided by Petr Kadlec.
*

Logging can be completely turned off by not specifying a logfile directive.
*

A number of improvements to Privoxy's internal CGI pages, including the use of favicons for error and control pages.
*

Many bugfixes, memory leaks addressed, code improvements, and logging improvements.
