sidki-config: Oct 23 2010
Hi all, a new config version is ready.

ChangeLog Wrote:October 23rd 2010
User Interface:
You can remove specific comment-blocks on given pages via the
Exceptions-U list.

Proxomitron menu:
"Show 'xxx' CSS" allows you to view all inline and external styles of a
page (initial code by ddandyy).
BabelFish translation service replaced with Bing, which features
automatic language recognition (like Google).
Defunct Whois service replaced.

Privacy:
3rd party and image cookies are blocked by default. (This feature is
already part of the June 6th 2009 update for the last config version.)

Technical:
"application/xhtml+xml" is filtered as is. (Previously this content-
type was changed to "text/html".) Filters and Proxomitron scripts have
been updated to properly handle (much stricter) XHTML. As a
consequence, embedded XML applications like MathML should now display
properly in standard-compliant browsers.
The config was tested on various Linux flavors, and adjusted for
platform specific characteristics and non-Windows browsers.

Lists:
IncludeExclude and IncludeExclude-U are renamed to Exceptions and
Exceptions-U respectively.
AdHosts-J (used to scan script sources for unwanted hosts) has been
massively extended.
Bypass-SSL is a new list, containing secure sites, where Proxomitron
should go into SSL-bypass mode right from the beginning.

Documentation:
43unite has written "Prox_on_Linux.txt", a how-to for setting up
Proxomitron on Linux.
whenever has written "Page_Info.txt", an overview of informational page
elements inserted by Proxomitron.
JJoe added a chapter to "Techniques.txt", about working around an issue
with using positional variables directly after negated sub-expressions.
(All config filters containing the potentially troublesome expression
pattern have been updated with the recommended notation.)
The ReadMe's "Installation" chapter is now hopefully a little easier to
understand for Proxomitron beginners.

As always:
Various bugfixes, additions, removals, improvements, enhancements,
and too little time.

Have fun Smile!

Many thanks for the new config Sidki, Proxo and HP Hosts are the first I loaded unto my new computer. For those who are using Hosts with Vista or Windows 7 remember to edit using Notepad and running as admin, also disable DNS client under Administrative services.

Great job and many thanks for the new filter set!

Please reconsider your recent announcement and continue your valuable contributions to this Proxo package, which, BTW, is the best. We'd really appreciate that Smile!

RE: sidki-config: Oct 23 2010
Yes, please heed Ozo's plea! I was here and didn't see your announcement. Went to dslreports and saw a thread http://www.dslreports.com/forum/r2497942...tron-Sidki about the new filter set. I was shocked to read there about your announcing leaving Proxomitron development. Take a LONG, well deserved break, but PLEASE come back eventually. You know more and understand Proxomitron better than any other person alive today. Proxo needs you. We need you. Thanks from the bottom of my heart for all your hard work and forgive me if any criticism I have made here contributed to your decision as the last thing I would want would be to have inadvertently helped to drive you away.

I still wish you would set up some kind of way for us to show our appreciation with a PayPal thing (I hate PayPal -got burned years ago_ but I would set it up for you). Even if you don't ever come back I feel I owe you for all the many years I have happily used your filter sets and I would like to show my appreciation.
