    5 ** Numerous bug fixes. See ChangeLog for details
    6 
    7 * New in version 0.8:
    8 
    9 ** httperf is now released under the GNU General Public License (GPL).
   10 
   11 ** Preliminary support for SSL (Secure Socket Layer).  See README for details.
   12 
   13 ** New options (see man-page for details):
   14 	--print-reply (replaced --print-replies)
   15 	--print-request
   16 	--ssl
   17 	--ssl-ciphers
   18 	--ssl-no-reuse
   19 
   20 * New in version 0.7:
   21 
   22 ** New options (see man-page for details):
   23 	--add-header
   24 	--method
   25 	--retry-on-failure
   26 
   27 ** Bug fixes
   28 	- fixed some segfaults in the session workload generator
   29 	- specifying option --session-cookie when not using a session
   30 	  workload generator now prints an error message instead of
   31 	  core dumping
   32 
   33 * New in version 0.6:
   34 
   35 ** New options (see man-page for details):
   36 	--max-connections
   37 	--max-piped-calls
   38 	--print-replies
   39 	--session-cookies
   40 
   41 ** Cookie support now must be requested explicitly when using a session-based
   42    workload generator.  To do this, specify option --session-cookie.
   43 
   44 * New in version 0.5:
   45 
   46 ** Normal connection closing is the default again.  To request closing TCP
   47    connections with a RESET, specify option --close-with-reset.
   48 
   49 ** --wsesslog option added to support log-file based session
   50    specification (contributed by Dick Carter).
   51 
   52 ** --period option added to allow a more flexible way to specify
   53    session/connection interarrival time.  Unlike the --rate
   54    argument, this allows deterministic (fixed), uniform, and
   55    exponentially distributed interarrival times (contributed by Dick
   56    Carter).
   57 
   58 ** Various bug fixes (see ChangeLog for details).
   59 
   60 * New in version 0.41:
   61 
   62 ** In basic statistic, rename "call" to "request".
   63 
   64 * New in version 0.4:
   65 
   66 ** Option --http-version can be used to select the HTTP protocol version
   67    used in sending requests. 1.0 and 1.0 are the only allowed values
   68    for this option at this point.
   69 
   70 ** What used to be called a "session" is now called a "connection".  This
   71    reduces confusion between TCP connections and user sessions.
   72 
   73 ** Stephane's log-file based URL generated has been added.
   74 
   75 ** The session workload generator now supports the --burst-length
   76    parameter to generate bursty session.
