Just published v0.6.6 yay! I'm excited about the logging changes, I was wanting accurate download size logging for a while and having the useragent is nice too. Also better support for TLS backends is always good, we want to encrypt everything.

I'm glad I waited because I realized I had updated the dependencies in a way that I didn't like that raised the minimum go compiler version. Now I have a nice script to do it next time.

Hopefully next release will be more features instead of bug fixes.

I started messing around with this again on this break after not coding for a while and got super into it. It started with accidentally finding a go issue about a potential bug I realized I had in my code and I wanted to fix.

I made several things more robust with detecting backend TLS support and made lots of improvements to the logging. I'm excited about accurately logging bytes served so I can tell how much bandwidth different pages are taking. I even ended up doing some windows specific platform code improvements.

There's even more, I'll do a new version soon, I just need to run it for 24 hours or so to make sure all the changes are working well. Can't take back a tag once it's in goproxy!

I've been working on this for several years off and on while I used it; it wasn't very well defined what it would be for a long time. I'm excited that it has come together into a neat package and it's finally ready to share with others.

I spent a good amount of time working to make it nice for newcomers. I'd love to hear if you try it out and what parts are confusing or didn't work when you tried to set it up.

I have a friend who has beta tested it for a while now and I have been running it for years so it should be relatively bug free but please let me know if there are problems of course.
