EZproxy 6.4.4 available and end of support for EZproxy on Solaris

A new release of EZproxy took place on 9 May 2018. EZproxy v6.4.4 is now available for Windows and Linux on the Download EZproxy page. This release contains two important updates:

  • Updated OpenSSL version support: EZproxy v6.4.4 was built with OpenSSL 1.0.2o to provide access to the most up-to-date security configuration options.
  • MaxMind GeoIP Updated to Version 2: EZproxy now supports MaxMind GeoIP2 files in Location config.txt directives.

Please see the release notes for more information.

Due to low usage, OCLC will end support for EZproxy on the Solaris 10 (x86) platform on December 31, 2018. We will no longer provide software for this platform as of that date. We will continue to provide Linux and Windows versions of the software. Customers using EZproxy on Solaris should plan to move their installation of EZproxy to Linux or Windows. If you have questions about this change, please reach out to Customer Support (support@oclc.org).

Later this year, OCLC will release a final build of EZproxy v6.3 for Solaris with an updated version of OpenSSL.
