We discovered a bug. I know! It’s unimaginable that we could have such things, right?
In print mode (siege -p) which is great for debugging web applications, siege wouldn’t return persisted cookies. This release fixes that problem. We also added more detail to socket errors. If a requested hostname can’t be resolved, siege will print the hostname so you know exactly what to fix. This recommendation was provided to us by a helpful sieger and, honestly, we can’t believe nobody suggested it sooner.
All users should update to siege-4.1.6
We’ve also added RedHat 6,7,8 binaries to the repository.
