Root/CHANGELOG

1v 0.1.3.3a
2October 17, 2008
3----------------
4 Bugfix: TightURL was failing to screen out forbidden extensions such as .exe
5 All users should upgrade to restore this important functionality.
6
7Feature: It is possible, if not necessarily advisable, to activate Policy Ban
8 URLs. ex: http://example.com/?ban=abc
9 This will mark the TightURL http://example.com/abc as banned for
10 violating your site's policy/Terms of Service. This feature is
11 activated by setting $pbi in tighturl.config.inc.php and is intended
12 only to allow administrators a fast and easy way to disable URLs in
13 the database. This feature will be secured in a following release
14 against misuse.

20 PHP version compatibility.
21 Change: Having discovered a new class of Internet abuse, a Pay-To-Click (PTC)
22 blacklist has been added.

37
38v 0.1.3.1
39July 24, 2008
40---------------
41 Bugfix: Some late night last minute packaging errors resulted in an error
42 in the default local blacklist file. This has been corrected.
43 Bugfix: Another slip-up due to the late hour, the installer script creates
44 a database which begins issuing redirection URLs in the ten-thousands
45 instead of zero. This has been corrected.
46
47v 0.1.3
48July 24, 2008
49---------------
50Feature: Optional full Bad Behavior integration into TightURL front-end!
51 http://www.bad-behavior.ioerror.us/
52Feature: Option to require submitted URLs to exist.
53Feature: Resolves all submitted HTTP URLs to the end up to 10 redirects.
54 Bugfix: Strip tags embedded within <title> tags in tighturl.tmpl .
55Feature: New templates for blacklisted URLs, URLs that violate site policy,
56 URLs disabled due to complaints, Greylisted URLs, and previews.
57Feature: tighturl-install.php preliminary web-based installer and
58 upgrade script. Presently allows for either the initial creation of
59 the tables TightURL uses, or upgrades an existing 0.1.2 or earlier
60 database to the current schema.
61Feature: tighturl-killbot shell script partly developed to cut off service to
62 abused URLs. An attempt will be made to piggyback maintenance tasks
63 on top of service requests.
64Feature: TightURL now updates the fields status, lasthit, hits, adddate, addip.
65 These fields were added as necessary for the anti-abuse
66 system. There is no intent to add an ability to view this data
67 for its own sake, however it may later be displayed as part the
68 anti-abuse information in previews.
69Feature: Updatable urlpatterns, two-level domains pattern, redirector patterns.
70 rejecting URIs of other known redirectors.
71Feature: Blacklist domains to refuse to create TightURLs for.
72Feature: TightURL does not accept links to itself; TightURL allows an domain
73 alias to be configured for this purpose. Both the main site and the
74 alias will be recognized with or without a preceeding "www." .
75Feature: Attempt to stop use of TightURL as an obfuscation service by
76 linking to other redirectors.
77Feature: TightURL no longer accepts URLs it can't shorten.
78 Change: TightURL now returns 301 redirects instead of 302
79Feature: Blacklist Windows executables and other file extensions.
80 Change: TightURL no longer contains any OS-specific code, thus Windows
81 support should be transparent now. Reports about TightURL working or
82 not under Windows, BSD, or OS X would be appreciated.
83 Change: Replaced chkdnsrr with gethostbyname, which should work on
84 non-Unix operating systems without a replacement function.
85 Bugfix: URIBL check was slow and worse did not work. Now works and not slow.
86 BugFix: TightURL now accepts the nasty URLs Yahoo uses.
87 Bugfix: Was truncating URLs longer than 256 characters.
