the fast, reliable localhost tunneling solution 0.4.4 released

By Bjarni Rúnar 2011-08-02, 10:22 0.4.4 is now available for download, from the usual location.

This release has been a long time coming, as we have been reorganizing the code and improving our development tools in order to facilitate some important new features. Some of the highlights of this release:

We are almost ready to recommend all users upgrade from v0.3 to v0.4, so if you've been dragging your feet, now would be an excellent time to give this release a try and let us know if we've overlooked something crucial!

In other news, Stelios's lua back-end implementation can be found in GitHub and Sveinbjörn Þórðarson has begun work on an OS X GUI.

    Testing on Win XP shows the following error message:

    C:\Programme\misc>python --version
    Python 2.7

    Traceback (most recent call last):
    File "C:\Programme\misc\", line 1157, in <module>
    exec __FILES[".SELF/sockschain/"] in sys.modules["sockschain"].__dict__
    File "<string>", line 49, in <module>
    ImportError: No module named fcntl

    Any hints?

    Seems an unneeded dependency slipped in when we built 0.4.4 - I've rebuilt it and re-released, so if you download 0.4 again you should get version 0.4.4f, which does not require fcntl. We are still working on integrating Windows better into our release/test process, hopefully in the future slip-ups like this can be avoided.

    Thanks for the bug-report!
