There are two major changes with this release:
- Martin Arlitt contributed support for testing web servers
via SSL (Secure Socket Layer). Please see the README
included as part of the httperf distribution for details.
- To encourage and faciliate the sharing of enhancements to
httperf, the license has been changed to the GNU General
Apart from these changes, various bug fixes and improvements have been
applied. In particular, httperf now uses the GNU "autoconf" scheme to
automatically configure httperf for the system it is being built on.
This should make it easier to port httperf to other UNIX-like
platforms. At present, httperf is known to work on Linux and HP-UX.
