I proudly present to you version 9.0 of the Hiawatha webserver. This release handles clients via a thread pool instead of creating them upon a new connection. Performance increase is between 1% and 10%, depending on whether the clients supports keep-alive connections or not.

Also, the URL Toolkit has been improved. It has the Header option and in several cases negative pattern matching can be done (perform action when pattern does not match). A complete and easy overview of all URL Toolkit commands can be found in the manual page and in the file config/toolkit.conf inside the source package.

Hiawatha doesn't do anything with character sets. That's up to the web application Hiawatha serves.

Thank you for the answer Hugo, i will talk with the web developer of the application.

This is cool to see. Right now, we're expecting to use 9.0 (since that's what OpenEmbedded has framed recipes in for...)- hopefully it'll work out as well as the proof of concepts I did back in February did with our application.
