---------------------------------------------------------------------

Name : privoxy
Version : 3.0.3
Release : 1
Summary : Privoxy - privacy enhancing proxy
Description :
Privoxy is a web proxy with advanced filtering capabilities for protecting privacy, filtering web page content, managing cookies, controlling access, and removing ads, banners, pop-ups and other obnoxious Internet junk. Privoxy has a very flexible configuration and can be customized to suit individual needs and tastes. Privoxy has application for both stand-alone systems and multi-user networks.

Privoxy is based on the Internet Junkbuster.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

- Fixed two memory leaks. Process growth seems stopped now.
- Further tightened security against malicious toggle-off links.
- Excluded text/plain MIME types from filtering. This fixes a
couple of client-crashing, download corruption and
Privoxy performance issues, whose root cause lies in
web servers labelling content of unknown type as text/plain.
- Assorted fixes for POSIX compliance, signal handling, graceful
termination, compiler warnings, OSX support, Win32 systray,
error logging, hostname wildcards, correct detection of NetBSD.
- Workarounds for client (iTunes etc) and server (PHP < 4.2.3) bugs
including the notorious "blank page" problem.
- Various filter improvements; most notably the unsolicited-popups
filter became less destructive
- Major revamp of the actions file
