"Now with TLS SNI and money back guarantee"

We finally added TLS SNI, and many other small improvements. We also fixed pipelining (that should fix problem with lighty as debian mirror) and some mod_fastcgi bugs - this should result in improved handling of overloaded and crashed backends (you know which one :D).

Important Changes

  • Connection state handling (pipelining should work now)
  • FastCGI fixes: improved disabled-time handling, fixed bug in active-backends counter.
  • TLS SNI support
