Change: Changed the way API calls are made, in order to support the HTTP Proxy feature in XenForo
This version improves compatibility with core XenForo features by supporting the "HTTP Proxy" feature in XenForo. This feature is used by certain sites that may be the target of harassment / DDoS attacks, to mask the true IP of the server.
When making calls to 3rd party websites, such as MaxMind to download the latest GeoIP database, those HTTP calls would expose the true IP of the server.
For this reason, the HTTP calls in this product have been updated to support the HTTP proxy. Going forward, all DBTech products that make calls to 3rd party APIs will support the HTTP Proxy feature where possible.
