The major new features of Ishlangu 1.1 are:
- SPDY (pronounced "Speedy") protocol support
- Geo-IP Location API for uControl Script
SPDY is a protocol that sits between SSL and HTTP to speed up requests and responses. SPDY was designed by Google to reduce latency and improve page load times. It is shown to improve page speed by up to 50%. If you have an SSL enabled proxy using any of the TLS versions, you will be able to enable SPDY support with just a single click. If a client doesn't support SPDY that's okay too! The client will just use SSL and HTTP to communicate with your proxy. Clients that support SPDY are Chrome, Firefox, and Opera, as well as any Android mobile device.
The Geo-IP Location API is a great tool for businesses. It can help you target your audience. If a client from Spain requests www.mysite.com you can redirect the client to your Spanish domain on www.mysite.es. You could even inform your back-end application of the client's country, city, or region based information, by adding headers to the request to be sent to the back-end server.
