Released CGIProxy 2.2.1 . Major improvements include:

Hopefully, the installation wizard makes the installation process much easier, especially for non-technical users. Please tell me about any problems you have, so I can fix them! The more I hear about any problems, the better the installation wizard will work in future releases. Also, please tell me if anything is confusing or unclear about the installation.

January 29, 2017-- Two important notes:

  1. If you have a good story of how you've used CGIProxy, please tell it to me. These stories help a lot when trying to get funding to develop CGIProxy-- donors appreciate good stories! I'm especially interested if you're an activist, or if you've learned technology from CGIProxy. Thank you!
  2. At long last, there is now an email list to get announcements of CGIProxy releases. Subscribe above, just below the menu bar. Coming soon to CGIProxy: an installation wizard, a menu-based config editor, an external config file (making upgrades easier), and more.

Released CGIProxy 2.1.15, which has many major bug fixes-- most popular websites now work again! Database support is much less error-prone, and for ease of installation SQLite is now the default database driver. Also making installation easier is the new "init" command, which installs the Perl modules and creates the database (the "install-modules" command is now obsolete). The installation instructions have been updated. As always, please report any bugs you find, so I can fix them!

November 13, 2014

October 6, 2014

Released CGIProxy 2.1.13, which includes a complete rewrite of the JavaScript-modifying code, for performance. YouTube videos now play again without much delay, and the load on the server CPU is much less. Several bugs were also fixed.

Please report any new problems you find in the JavaScript support! Thanks.

CGIProxy will soon be able to display its messages in Farsi, Russian, Arabic, Turkish, or English. Would you like it to support other languages? If so, see the translation page-- there you can download the file of messages (about 13K in size), and see the simple instructions to translate them. I'd love to add Chinese, Vietnamese, French, Spanish, and any others you think are important, i.e. any that are used in censored countries. Thanks!

February 4, 2013

Released CGIProxy 2.1.6, with much easier and more flexible installation:

November 10, 2012

In response to China blocking Gmail yesterday, released version 2.1.5b . The only change since 2.1.5 is that by default, visiting Gmail now redirects you to the HTML-only version of that site, which means it works well through CGIProxy. Note that I'm once again welcoming bug reports and fixing those bugs, so please use the "Report a bug" link in the top form when you see errors.

New features in 2.1.5 and 2.1.5b include:

New features in the 2.1 series include:
