The next version is *imminent* — I was about to send out an email asking
if there's anything else we really need to do before releasing 5.00.

If you or someone else sends patches though, then I don't see why it
can't be included. I can give pointers but I don't easily have a proxy I
can test with.

Ideally I'd like to see full support for basic, GSSAPI and NTLM
authentication (including the use of the /usr/bin/ntlm_auth helper),
rather than only a partial implementation. But let's start simple...


I don't have access to a proxy requiring authentication. I could perhaps
set up squid to require basic auth, but NTLM and Kerberos are harder. If
I could have access to a proxy that requires such, then I might be more
inclined to implement this myself...
