Released CGIProxy 2.1.12, a bug fix release which works again if you have an old Socket module. Also:
OpenSSL, a tool used by CGIProxy and most other software for secure communications, has reported an important security bug. Please upgrade your OpenSSL installation to version 1.0.1h, released today. If you don't manage your own server, please ask your sysadmin to upgrade your OpenSSL!
Released CGIProxy 2.1.11, with these new features and fixes:
Here's a more complete list of changes, including previous versions.
A list of past announcements is on the news page.
Note that I'm once again welcoming bug reports and fixing those bugs, so please use the "Report a bug" link in the top form when you see errors. This is especially true of bugs when using any new features.
CGIProxy can run in four ways: as a CGI script, as a mod_perl script, as a FastCGI script, or with its own embedded secure HTTP server. Configurable options include text-only support (to save bandwidth), selective cookie and script removal, simple ad filtering, access restriction by server, custom encoding of target URLs and cookies, and more-- there are more than 70 options so far. It requires Perl 5.6.1 or later, but works better with a more recent version.

Of course, you must read the Legal Disclaimer before using this software.
Here's a demo (username "free", password "speech"), that lets you browse in the domains jmarshall.com, slashdot.org, whatismyip.com, and prismnet.com.
The original seed for this was a program I wrote for Rich Morin's article in the June 1996 issue of Unix Review.
Here are older versions, but don't use them anymore.
Visit the script's URL to start a browsing session. Once you've gotten a page through the proxy, everything it links to will automatically go through the proxy. You can bookmark pages you browse to, and your bookmarks will go through the proxy as they did the first time.
Censorship is a controversial subject, and some governments and companies have rules about what information you should have access to. If you use my software to bypass rules that have been imposed on you, you assume all legal risks and responsibilities involved. I'm providing the software as a demonstration and teaching tool, and for when legitimate access is needed to non-accessible servers. I won't encourage you to break any rules, because I would get in trouble if I did. I can't prevent you from using this software in illegitimate ways, but I believe the value of it as a teaching tool is far too great to let a few miscreants ruin it for everybody.
