Notes: fwdengine is a lightweight approach to the packet forwarding concept. It was written with security in mind. While not exactly the fastest solution out there, it's remarkably easy to remove or add to code to it, since it's completely coded in perl5.
What it does is basically simple. It endlessly listens for packets on a specific port, waiting for someone to establish a connection. Once a client reaches it, all the data is sent to a remote host, without suffering any kind of changes.

Security will be implemented through an authorization ruleset.

New Advogato Features

New HTML Parser: The long-awaited libxml2 based HTML parser code is live. It needs further work but already handles most markup better than the original parser.

Keep up with the latest Advogato features by reading the Advogato status blog.

If you're a C programmer with some spare time, take a look at the mod_virgule project page and help us with one of the tasks on the ToDo list!
