New Features

Image Loader - HTTPS support

pixolution flow now also supports HTTPS protocol. The involved SSL server certificates are trusted in any case, all security checks are ignored. Neither the hostname nor the certification authority are checked.

The allowed protocol version are SSLv3, TLSv1, TLSv1.1 and TLSv1.2. Please note that using SSLv3 on your image webserver is not secure.

Image Loader - following redirects

The ImageLoader of pixolution flow does now follow redirect status codes from webserver when downloading an image URL. Image URLs are downloaded either if a document is added to the index or if a rank by URL query is done.

A redirect status code from a webserver indicates the client must take additional action to complete the request. pixolution flow now supports the following additional status codes: 301 (Moved Permanently), 302 (Found) and 307 (Temporary Redirect).
