That's cool, but would image converting destroy the relationship your project has with acting as a proxy? Just asking. Well, I guess it does seem like a good idea to add miscellaneous stuff into a project made for a certain task 😀

I was asking for this feature to improve the compatibility of certain websites with these older browsers. By converting these images to a simpler format it'll fix a lot of wierd graphical issues that occurs when the site tries to load images that are either a: too big to fit in ram or b: a format not supported by the vintage browser.
While I agree that this isn't a high priority, I strongly disagree that this would destroy the overall idea of the project.

No. WebOne is not a regular proxy server like Squid/MS-ISA, it is a proxy that edits traffic to make it appropriate for certain browsers using rules and patches from configuration file. It can almost don't make changes if webone.conf contains only Server section, and then the proxy will act like Squid or something like it (but with freezes and slow work on large amount of clients 😀 ). But this is not what I made this app for. So image converting will be a continue of set of possible patches for webpages' content.

Image converting (in v0.9 or 0.10) will be optional feature, just like the current redirections to Web Archive.

Yeah, Squid is also a proxy server software, kind of like WebOne, but WebOne seems to have different features, because I believe Squid is mostly used for things like web filtering, IIRC. WebOne is mostly a proxy software that's capable of handling HTTP 2.0 on older web browsers.

JonathonWyble, exactly!

---

Version 0.8.1 is ready

  • Fixed parsing of startup arguments. Now it's possible to start with a some config file with a overrided port number: webone.exe PORT CONFIG-FILE. It was announced in previous releases, but before was broken.
  • Instead of [ContentPatchFind:] sections a new [ContentPatch:mask] kind of sections were introduced. Now content patches may be applied only to certain files or content. Their URLs or Content-Types may be used as a rules (filters).
  • URL editing can now be used to make "hidden" redirects (not via 302 response code and like 0.6.x versions, by returning content from "valid" url without changing address in web-browser address bar). It may be useful for sites with forced redirections to "example.com:443/" to remove ":443" from URL and solve problems with it. To use the new feature set Internal=yes in a [FixableURL] section.
  • [FixableURL] sections can now use a new mask: %UrlNoPort%. It meaning original URL without port number. This feature was added to solve the problem above.
  • Default webone.conf file is now containing more patches and redirection rules.
  • Now IE4's Active Channels are working again without manual editing of *.cdf files in installed system. Just click Subscribe and "updated" channels will get downloaded.

It's available at github.com/atauenis/webone/tree/master/EXE

There haven’t been any updates in the github page for almost a month now. I hope this project hasn’t been abandoned.

I wouldn't be surprised if it never was again after reading that comment. Get a grip.

People have lives, he'll get around to it when he has time. He's giving us all free labour for doing this, I'm willing to be patient.

What was wrong with my comment? All I said is that there haven’t been any commits in a month on GitHub, and that I hope the project hasn’t been abandoned. How about you get a grip.

This is like pissing in the wind but.....Since it bothers you so much then start making some commits, better hurry up though it's been a whole month since the last one.

/EDIT This is my last comment on this.

Version 0.2 has been released. It is now possible to set program's settings in the webone.conf file. Also it is now working in both Windows 7+ (.NET 4.6+) and WinXP/2003 (.NET 4.0), but if the .NET Framework version is less than 4.6 (e.g. 4.0 or 4.5), some SSL/TLS features will be unusable.

FYI: blackwingcat made a patched "TLS 1.2 Support for .Net Framework 4.0(KB4483475)" that brings TLS 1.2 to XP/2000(extended kernel)

The project is not fully abandoned. Currently I have other projects and tasks and cannot develop WebOne. I'm planning to fix processing of POST requests from Mozilla 1.x (sometimes they are crashing WebOne), release v0.8.2, then add support for picture file converting/compression and make v0.9 at end of this year.

Roytam1, thanks, but it's looking that the update is available only for Japanese versions. 😢 I'm more often using English and Russian (or English+Rus. MUI) systems.

Thanks for the update. Really looking forward to the image compression feature. 😀
Don't worry about us though, take your time.
