New Features

Here are the features that are new since CTP release (for a complete list of features refer to this article):

· Support for IIS kernel mode and user mode output caching. IIS
7.0 output caching provides significant performance improvements for
web applications. URL rewrite module is fully compatible with both
types of output caching. This means that it is possible to safely cache
responses for rewritten URL’s and thus boost the performance of web
applications that rely on URL rewriting.

· Lower case conversion.
A lower case conversion function called “ToLower” can be used within
rewrite rule to convert any rule input string or substitution URL to
lower case.

· Rule templates.
Rule template is an extension for URL rewrite module user interface,
that simplifies creation of rewrite rules for a particular task.  The
Go Live release of the module includes 3 built-in rule templates, plus
it allows plugging in any number of custom templates.

· UI for testing of regular expression and wildcard patterns.
A GUI tool for testing rule patterns is included into the module’s user
interface. The tool can be used to quickly check how the regular
expression or wildcard pattern works. Also, it can be used for
troubleshooting and debugging of problems related to pattern matching.

· UI for managing rewrite rules and rewrite maps. Rewrite rules and rewrite maps can be added, removed and edited by using “URL Rewrite Module” feature in IIS Manager.
