Build 15, February 28, 2012.
Change: To uninstall UWS use "Uninstall UltiDev Web Server Pro" menu item from UWS Programs menu. New uninstallation routine displays list of applications currently hosted by UWS, giving users a chance to see which web applications will stop working in case UWS is uninstalled. Ability to uninstall UWS from "Add/Remove Programs" and "Programs and Features" has been removed.
Change: At the end of stand-alone (full UI) installation of UWS, the UWS Explorer application management console is launched. This change does not affect cases when UWS installer is bundled as "passive", "quiet" or otherwise reduced-UI package, meaning UWS Explorer won't pop up in the process of your application installation.
New feature: added SSL/TLS support and Certificate Management. UWS can allows creating and managing X.509 digital certificates, both self-signed and production-level CA-signed ones.
New feature: simplified or automatic creation of desktop shortcuts to redistributable web applications when applications are registered with UWS. This significantly simplifies web application installation authoring.
New feature: launch your web application in the browser right after installation using "/autostart" parameter of UWS.RegApp.exe. There is a corresponding programmatic way to do the same using .NET and COM APIs.
Bug fix: Request process logic changed to let ASP.NET pipeline try to handle requests with no physical files mapped to the URL, before returning 404. This allows HttpHandlers to process requests that may look like potential 404.
Bug fix: UWS Explorer crashed when selected host process used more 2GB of RAM.
Bug fix: During application registration, taken listen-to URLs were not filtered out if Vdir was specified (non-"/").
