Your JoeDog has fixed a problem in which the application hung when running in timed mode (-t N / –time=N) on some platforms. No, really this time! Although we’ve not been able to reproduce the problem, enough siegers had seen it plodding in the wild to convince us that this Big Foot existed. Siege-4.1.5 also fixes an FTP problem. If the target server had a functioning listener but its handlers were hosed, siege would continue reading zero bytes on an endless loop. Now it’s able to say, “Hey, man. You’re listening but you’re not doing a damn thing for me.” The result is FTP/421.
We recommend all users upgrade to siege-4.1.5
