WinHTTrack v3.48-19 Updated

Checker on 29 Jul 2014

WinHTTrack is an offline browser utility. It allows you to download a website from the Internet to a local directory, building recursively all directories, getting HTML, images, and other files from the server to your computer. WinHTTrack can also update an existing mirrored site, and resume interrupted downloads.

Alternatively, X-WinHTTrack is a portable package for standard WinHTTrack.

How to extract:
  1. Download the no-install ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice
  2. The application files are located in the httrack subfolder

What's new? New:
  • Handle --advanced-maxlinks=0 to disable maximum link limits.
  • Updated ZIP routines (zlib 1.2.8).
  • Enforce check against CVE-2014-0160.
  • Improved hashtables to speedup large mirrors.
  • Added unit tests.
  • Added %a option, allowing to define the "Accept:" header line.
  • Added %X option, to define additional request header lines.
  • Added option '-%t', preserving the original file type (which may produce non-browseable file locally).
Fixed:
  • Assertion failure at htslib.c:3458 (strlen(copyBuff) == qLen) seen on Linux.
  • Infamous crashes inside the DNS cache due to a corruption within the option structure.
  • Added minimalistic crash reporting on Windows and Linux.
  • URL list not working anymore.
  • FTBFS on ARM.
  • Buggy FFFD (replacement character) in place of leading non-ascii character such as Chinese ones.
  • FTBFS when compiling with zlib versions < 1.2.70.
  • Buggy SVG.
  • Do not uncompress .tgz advertised as "streamed".
  • NULL pointer dereferencing in back_unserialize (htsback.c:976).
  • Library development files.
  • --advanced-maxlinks broken (Localhost).
  • -devel package should now be standalone.
  • Assertion failure at htscore.c:244 (len + liensbuf->string_buffer_size < liensbuf->string_buffer_capa).
  • Injection-proof templates.
  • htshash.c:330 assertion failure ("error invalidating hash entry").
  • Windows 2000 regression.
  • Code cleanup (aliasing issues, const correctness, safe strings).
  • Broken 32-bit version.
  • Assertion "segOutputSize < segSize assertion fails at htscharset.c:993".
  • New zlib version fixing CVE-2004-0797 and CVE-2005-2096.
  • More reliable crash reporting.
  • Fixed infamous "hashtable internal error: cuckoo/stash collision" errors.
  • Safety cleanup in many strings operations.
  • Buggy option pannels.
  • Remove scope id (% character) in dotted address resolution (especially for catchurl proxy).
  • Build fixes, including for Android, non-SSL releases.
  • Buggy keep-alive handling, leading to waste connections.
  • Removed chroot and setuid features (this is definitely not our business).
  • Removed MMS (Microsoft Media Server) ripping code (mmsrip) (dead protocol, unmaintained code, licensing issues).
  • Type mishandling when processing a redirect (such as a .PDF redirecting to another .PDF, with a text/html type tagged in the redirect message).
  • Infinite loop when attempting to download a file:/// directory on Unix (gp).
  • Removed background DNS resolution, prone to bugs.
  • Do not choke on Windows 2000 because of missing SetDllDirectory().
  • %h custom build structure parameter not taken in account.

WebSiteZip Packer v1.3 New

Checker on 5 Aug 2014

WebSiteZip Packer compiles HTML files into a single file (including all graphics, sounds, linked pages, etc.) with an integrated HTML browser. Ideal for e-books, product catalogs, site demos, manuals, and searchable information distribution.

  2. The application is in the {app} folder

CHReader v0.9.4

Checker on 15 Mar 2014

CHReader collects a group of related web files along with images, resources, etc. to a single compressed archive up to 4GB. The program then acts as a dedicated local web server and lets you browse the archive locally using your preferred web browser without needing to decompress. This way you can retrieve very large sites with web spiders and keep them in a compact form that can be readily viewed or referenced..

Note: The main website is offline and the project is no longer under development by the author. Linking to Softpedia. (Thanks to Midas and Craunch.)

How to extract: Download the ZIP package and extract to a folder of your choice. Launch CHReader.exe.

Can't find CHReader homepage (only Acrylic DNS proxy remains at the original http://mayakron.altervista.org/ website), but it is still available at Sourceforge:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/chreader/

For more info, see Softpedia:

Note that sourceforge page states that CHReader is now discontinued.
