A new version of MacHTTP, v.1.0d9, is now available for anonymous FTP from:
oac.hsc.uth.tmc.edu, /public/mac/MacHTTP1.0d9.sit.hqx

What's New?
Lots of new stuff in this release! First, a big thanks goes to Chris
(chrisj at bongo.cc.utexas.edu) who provided a chunk of code for resolving
file aliases. That means that as of this version, you can have aliases in
place of every file with the exception of the log file and they will be
correctly interpreted. 

Logging to a file has been implemented, capturing information on the date,
time, remote host, and requested file. Information on whether or not the
query was successfully performed is also logged. Logging is controlled
in the config file.

Specifications for the Default.html and Error.html files were added to the
configuration file, allowing you to specify any file for your home page
as well as error messages. These files can now be AppleScripts as well.

See the Special Files and Configuration File sections for more details.
Please read the instructions carefully. A lot of information has been 
added and I probably haven't documented it very well.

What is it?
MacHTTP is a server for Macs participating in the World Wide Web (WWW). It 
allows you to serve hypertext documents to other WWW users from your
This version allows you to serve text documents (like HyperText Markup
documents) as well as binary files (GIFs, f'rinstance). This server works
the standard WWW clients as well as clients like XMosaic that support
graphics and it supports HTTP version 0.
