Caddy 0.10.10 Released Along With New Pricing Structure
Today, we're releasing Caddy 0.10.10 and an updated pricing structure. This new version has several incremental changes, including the removal of the Caddy-Sponsors header.

Announcing Caddy Commercial Licenses
Today, we're pleased to unveil something we've been working diligently on for the past few months: Caddy Commercial Licenses. This change is designed to accommodate the needs of the growing Caddy community and user base.

Caddy 0.10.7 Released with Secure Forward Proxy Plugin
Caddy 0.10.7 was released two Fridays ago. There was no hype or celebration because technically it's a minor release. But this is a landmark release in more than one way. Most notably, a new plugin, http.forwardproxy, is a significant boon to those interested in online privacy and Internet freedom.
