Getdown v1.8.6 Release Notes

Release Date: 2019-06-04 // over 3 years ago
    • 🛠 Fixed issues with PAC proxy support: added myIpAddress(), fixed dnsResolve(), fixed crash when detecting PAC proxy.

    • ⏪ Reverted env var support in appbase property. It's causing problems that need to be investigated.

Previous changes from v1.8.5

    • 🛠 Fixed issues with proxy information not getting properly passed through to app. Via [#216](//

    • appbase and latest properties in getdown.txt now process env var subtitutions.

    • ➕ Added support for Proxy Auto-config via PAC files.

    • Proxy handling can now recover from credentials going out of date. It will detect the error and ask for updated credentials.

    • Added try_no_proxy system property. This instructs Getdown to always first try to run without a proxy, regardless of whether it has been configured to use a proxy in the past. And if it can run without a proxy, it does so for that session, but retains the proxy config for future sessions in which the proxy may again be needed.

    • ➕ Added revalidate_policy config to control when Getdown revalidates resources (by hashing them and comparing that hash to the values in digest.txt). The default, after_update, only validates resources after the app is updated. A new mode, always, validates resources prior to every application launch.
