    Description:
    
       This update for privoxy fixes the following issues:
    
       privoxy was updated to 3.0.29:
    
       * Fixed memory leaks when a response is buffered and the buffer limit is
         reached or Privoxy is running out of memory. OVE-20201118-0001
       * Fixed a memory leak in the show-status CGI handler when no action files
         are configured OVE-20201118-0002
       * Fixed a memory leak in the show-status CGI handler when no filter files
         are configured OVE-20201118-0003
       * Fixes a memory leak when client tags are active OVE-20201118-0004
       * Fixed a memory leak if multiple filters are executed and the last one is
         skipped due to a pcre error OVE-20201118-0005
       * Prevent an unlikely dereference of a NULL-pointer that could result in a
         crash if accept-intercepted-requests was enabled, Privoxy failed to get
         the request destination from the Host header and a memory allocation
         failed. OVE-20201118-0006
       * Fixed memory leaks in the client-tags CGI handler when client tags are
         configured and memory allocations fail. OVE-20201118-0007
       * Fixed memory leaks in the show-status CGI handler when memory
         allocations fail OVE-20201118-0008
       * Add experimental https inspection support
       * Use JIT compilation for static filtering for speedup
       * Add support for Brotli decompression, add 'no-brotli-accepted' filter
         which prevents the use of Brotli compression
       * Add feature to gather exended statistics
       * Use IP_FREEBIND socket option to help with failover
       * Allow to use extended host patterns and vanilla host patterns at the
         same time by prefixing extended host patterns with "PCRE-HOST-PATTERN:"
       * Added "Cross-origin resource sharing" (CORS) support
       * Add SOCKS5 username/password support
       * Bump the maximum number of action and filter files to 100 each
       * Fixed handling of filters with "split-large-forms 1" when using the CGI
         editor.
       * Better detect a mismatch of connection details when figuring out whether
         or not a connection can be reused
       * Don't send a "Connection failure" message instead of the "DNS failure"
         message
       * Let LOG_LEVEL_REQUEST log all requests
       * Improvements to default Action file
    
       License changed to GPLv3.
