There is a new version of Web Commander available for testing:


Web Commander is a Win32 application that you can use to get, save, and
delete documents on a HTTP/1.1 server. Features include:

* Avoids the lost update problem when saving documents using HTTP/1.1
features like etags, persistent cache, and HEAD requests. This means that
multiple people can work on the same documents using HTTP without loosing
information. It requires a HTTP/1.1 server like Jigsaw, for example, in the
other end in order to do this.

* Support for GET and DELETE as well as PUT

* Shows how to use regular expressions for proxy setup

* Shows how to modify metadata like the natural language of the document

It is available as a binary from the page above but is of course also
checked into the CVS codebase - you can see how to get it at


Comments are welcome!
