EZproxy 7.0 available

EZproxy v.7.0 was released 20 March 2020. This release contains requested enhancements and new features including:

  • EZproxy has moved to an exclusively 64-bit build. By deprecating the development of 32-bit builds and focusing on 64-bit builds, OCLC can increase the frequency of future feature development for EZproxy
  • Improved security with OpenSSL 1.1.1d
  • More flexible cookie handling to support Chrome 80 changes

The release notes for this version are available here. Detailed information about EZproxy v.7.0 was also shared in our recent EZproxy Product Insights session.

Important note about Proxy by Port

OCLC will end support for EZproxy’s Proxy by Port option on 30 September 2020, due to its incompatibility with many popular e-resource websites. Customers currently running Proxy by Port may continue to do so for the time being. After 30 September 2020, customers will need to enable Proxy by Hostname in order to receive support from OCLC. Proxy by Hostname will help ensure seamless access for your library’s e-resource subscriptions. For more information, please see migrating to Proxy by Hostname or contact OCLC Support.
