The new version of Web Safety ICAP web filter for Squid proxy is ready to be called a Release Candidate. This version has the following improvements and fixes.
- Added management UI for various settings to enable Squid caching and tune the refresh patterns. It is now possible to reset the cache from UI.
- Added management of log levels (up to the submodule). It is now possible to increase the log lever for a specific module and leave default log level for other modules. Might be very helpful when troubleshooting Squid issues.
- The application is based on new version of domain categorization database, we have combined some categories and introduced new ones. Management UI for all sections (SSL bypass, Trusted Categories and Blocked Categories) is greatly improved.
- Added support for new “brotli” transfer encoding that is extensively used by YouTube and other Google services. The quality of filtering on YouTube shall be improved considerably.
This version is available from https://www.diladele.com/download_next_version.html page. The status is Release Candidate, thus please use it in non critical environments. We still have time to do the testing and overall polishing as release is planned at the end of the year.
Next version will supposedly contain ClamAV antivirus. Other planned improvements are visible on GitHub Milestones. Please direct all your questions, suggestions and critic to firstname.lastname@example.org.
