Your JoeDog fixed a bug! A password that contained a ‘#’ was chomped at the ‘#’ because siege treated it like a comment. So if you set this: login = jeff:haha#papa:Basic Realm in your siege.conf, siege would send the password ‘haha’ to the server. D’oh! This release fixes that bug.
Siege 4.1.0 also includes prettified output for credentials in ‘siege -C’ And who doesn’t like prettified output?
All siege users should probably update to version 4.1.0
