Dear all,

A new version of the W3C Log Validator was released today.
This is Log Validator version 1.2, release 10 September 2007

What is it?

The Log Validator is the love child of web log analysis and statistic  
tools, and quality analysis tool such as the W3C markup validator,  
CSS validator and link checker. By mixing the features of these two  
types of software, it gives webmaster an easy way to focus their  
quality process work on the resources that need them the most: the  
most popular ones. It can also be used to batch-process a list of web  

How does it work?

The Log Validator uses perl and a number of its modules. It will run  
on most platforms that run perl, including linux, Mac Os X, and  
Windows (with e.g ActivePerl). Its installation requires some  
reasonable sysadmin skills, but can be greatly eased my using the  
CPAN perl installer. For more information:

What's new in 1.2?

This new version includes a number of bug fixes and enhancements made  
since version 1.0 (June 2006).
Among others:

   - adding options for the HTML and CSS Validator modules to show which
     of the valid, invalid and other (non validable) documents should  
be listed
     in the final report. As a result, one can decide only to list  
the top
     valid, top invalid, or all documents with their validation  
status, etc.

   - supporting additional log format used by e.g squid revers proxy

   - adding ExcludeCGI option to switch on of off filtering of URIs
     with query strings, e.g http://www.example.com/script?foo=bar

   - fixing the "Basic" (counting the most popular resource) module
     for input formats which do not include the HTTP response code

   - bug fixes for the LinkReferer module

What's next?

The Log Validator is developed as open source by W3C. Feedback,  
questions, suggestions and patches are all welcome, either on this  
mailing-list (www-validator@w3.org) or on the public bug tracker for  
W3C Software: http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/
