Improvements and enhancements

The highlights for the new version include:

  • Protocol relative URLs (e.g. “//”) are now recognized as valid destinations when altering HTML banners to add click tracking.
  • Optional custom destinations in HTML banners using the “{clickurl}” macro, and dynamically appending a URL-encoded destination, are now allowed.
  • A new click URL validity setting specifies the number of seconds a generated click URL will be accepted and will redirect to the specified destination parameter. We have decided to set the validity window to 10 minutes.
  • The “ct0” parameter has been reworked and reintroduced. Revive Adserver tags can now be modified so that they can be placed into third party ad servers and have both ad servers track ad clicks.
  • In addition, several bugs plus 2 low risk security issues have been fixed.

Detailed information about this release can be found on the blog post published by the Revive Adserver project.
