  no action files are configured

  no filter files are configured
* Fixes a memory leak when client tags are active
* Fixed a memory leak if multiple filters are executed
  and the last one is skipped due to a pcre error
* Prevent an unlikely dereference of a NULL-pointer that
  could result in a crash if accept-intercepted-requests
  was enabled, Privoxy failed to get the request destination
  from the Host header and a memory allocation failed.

  client tags are configured and memory allocations fail.
* Fixed memory leaks in the show-status CGI handler when memory
  allocations fail

  'no-brotli-accepted' filter which prevents the use of 
  Brotli compression

* Use IP_FREEBIND socket option to help with failover
* Allow to use extended host patterns and vanilla host patterns
  at the same time by prefixing extended host patterns with
* Added "Cross-origin resource sharing" (CORS) support

* Bump the maximum number of action and filter files
  to 100 each
* Fixed handling of filters with "split-large-forms 1"
  when using the CGI editor.
* Better detect a mismatch of connection details when
  figuring out whether or not a connection can be reused
* Don't send a "Connection failure" message instead of the
  "DNS failure" message
