            -= W3C Link Checher version 4.1 released =-

We released today a new version of the W3C Link Checker (a.k.a
checklink), fixing a few bugs and improving our support of the robots
exclusion protocol a little further.

**  Use or Download the Link Checker  **

The Link checker is available as a free online service provided by W3C 
at:        http://validator.w3.org/checklink

The Link Checker is also available for downloading on the Comprehensive
Perl Archive Network (CPAN) at:
and can be used either as an online service or a command-line tool.

**  Feedback  **

You can help us improve the Link Checker by sending us e-mails with your
thoughts or bug reports to the *public* W3C mailing list www-validator:

Note that this list is used for feedback on several different tools, so
we suggest that you tag your messages regarding checklink in the subject
of your e-mail, e.g:

**  Release notes  **

The main additions for this version are:
- Added workarounds against browser timeouts in "summary only" mode.
- Improved caching and reuse of fetched /robots.txt information.
- Fixed a bug where a complete protocol response (including headers)
  was passed to the HTML parser, which caused unexpected behaviour.
- Minor user interface and installation related improvements.

A full changelog is also distributed with the source, e.g at:
