SpoonProxy notable features, changes and fixes by (relased) version number.

Version Number

Feature(s) added or improvements made since prior public release SOCKS4 is disabled when authentication is turned on. (Use SOCKS5!) Add ability to use POP3 proxy with email addresses which already include the @ sign. Fix of local address checking bug for incoming restrictions. Fixed handling of HTTP/1.1 persistent connections. Added default interface selection. (Individual ports for a previously existing install will already be set to "Any," and will need to be set to "Default" to make use of this feature.

Fix of a log file size bug where the size was being handled as if it were in bytes, not megabytes. Users need only to make a
change to the support log size using this updated version and it will be fixed for their next logging attempt.

Also, this update starts the service during installation and stops it during uninstallation. If an older version of SpoonProxy is already installed, you'll still have to stop the service manually first since it will have been installed using the old installer. Fix of registration tab bug which could cause the application to crash when applying registration key. Addition of MMS (Microsoft Media Services) proxy to enable easy proxying of Media Player. Added new feature: Activity logging. WELF-format logfiles can now be created. Logs are created with an .aog extension. Also, install program now verifies that user has admin privileges with NT/2K/XP. Plus, install program informas users they can sign up for update notification.
