This update provides a stable support for Windows 8. The only exception is Metro (Windows Store) applications that work correctly when Proxifier Standard Edition is installed and running but they completely bypass it. Unfortunately, Microsoft has completely broken backward compatibility for Metro subsystem so it will take some time to add full Metro support in Proxifier.
- Full support for Windows 8 desktop applications.
- Windows 8 Metro (Windows Store) applications now work correctly when Proxifier Standard Edition is installed and running but they still completely bypass it.
- Correct processing of IP4-mapped IPv6 addresses. Some applications like Java use such addresses even in IPv4 network environment.
- SOCKS4 User ID has not been saved properly in profile in some scenarios.
- Miscellaneous small improvements and adjustments.
- Failover (redundancy list) allows assigning any number of back up proxies. Timeout is configurable. Proxy failure is transparent for the client application if redundancy is enabled.
- Automatic profile update from a remote web server. User’s proxy login details get preserved.
- Proxifier can use Authentication URL to be authorized on the proxy server. This option can work with specific proxy servers like Blue Coat.
- Each proxy can be assigned a short name (label) that can be conveniently used in other parts of Proxifier.
