BW whois is a modern whois client that works as a full-featured Web application or as a commandline tool. It is flexible and configurable with self-detecting CGI support, multiple security options in the CGI mode, a mature TLD table, database caching (using MySQL or PostgreSQL), and many more options and features.
Release Notes: Documentation updates, included missing .sql files in the distribution.
Release Notes: This release adds support for SQLite databases (these are fast and simple). There are a few bugfixes and feature enhancements.
Release Notes: Multiple outgoing IP addresses are supported to help with whois servers that block based on queries per IP address. Support was added for PostgreSQL in addition to MySQL for database features. Support for mod_perl was improved, and support for non-standard whois servers (like whois.denic.de) was improved.
Release Notes: This is a beta release of BW Whois 4.0. New features include normalized XML output, a modular output framework with an XML-based filter system for parsing different registrar whois formats, and new support for PostgreSQL (in addition to the existing MySQL support).
Release Notes: This update fixes an incompatibility with the new .ORG registry's "thin" whois server. There are also a few other bugfixes and minor feature improvements.
