Possible Bugs?

Issue with bulk importer not indexing correctly

Issue with availability showing incorrectly - Fixed in 0.2.3

When used with jQuerySkin/CactiEZ mURLin causes an error to be displayed - Fixed in 0.2.2

Only supports URL's of 256 chars or less - Fixed in 0.2.2

Slow responding sites will show incorrect values (1000ms) for all queries above 1 second (only affects version 0.2.0, if you are using this version then please update to 0.2.1) - fixed in 0.2.1

Regex test fails in the GUI only when using a proxy - fixed in 0.2.1

Site fails to load correcly in the GUI when using a proxy (graphs will be rendered correctly) - fixed in 0.2.0

mURLin fails to auto update - fixed in 0.1.7

Proxy failed to work when graphing even though the data would show in a preview - fixed in 0.1.7

mURLin fails to automatically follow redirections - fixed in 0.1.7

When previewing a site with multiple GET variables, the site doesn't display correctly - fixed in 0.1.6

When deleting the last URL from a host the data query will not correctly refresh until a new URL is added. This does not affect performance of the plugin. This seems to be a quirk in the way a data query works in cacti, I believe if there are no indexes returned by a DQ cacti assumes that the DQ has not responded correctly. This will be fixed in the next version. - Fixed in 0.1.5

Scrollbars are not correctly utilized on the Add URL menu - Fixed in 0.1.4

Validation of the URL add form doesn't work - Fixed in 0.1.4
