Another minor feature and bug fix are available for download from Changes include:

- New Features:

   controls how frequently MacHTTP-js requests a UPnP port mapping
   for your server port from your router. Don't set less than 120 seconds

MacHTTP-js 1.0.24 Released

Nov 292016

This is a quick bug fix release to address a somewhat critical bug that kept MacHTTP-js from properly launching on Macs that had sharing disabled in System Prefs.

v. 1.0.24, 2016-11-30
- Bug Fixes:
- Added a work-around for DNS look-ups that failed on Macs that don't have
some sort of sharing enabled in System Prefs. If nothing is shared, then
the Mac cannot resolve its own host name. Substituted the primary IP
address of the server for the host name as a work-around.

Mac Observer Podcast

Nov 292016

I did a fun podcast with John Martellaro of Mac Observer which covered everything from the early days of MacHTTP to its new incarnation as MacHTTP-js and everything in between. If you are curious about how the products came to be, this is 45 minutes of ancient Mac history that will stir a few memories for old MacHTTP users and give new ones some idea of the history behind the product. You can find the podcast on the Mac Observer web site.
