Unity 2 will not ship with simulated HTTP-proxy support. We'll consider adding it post launch. A full feature list will be posted when we launch. For now, you can see most of the new features in Unity 2 here:, and by reading the documentation.

I've tried to figure out what was new in version 2, but I got blown of with too many enhancements to mention. You wanna sell the thing or not? ;-)

I'm looking for a specific feature. I use socketbased tools for chats and I noticed that odd traffic is coming by between 15:00u and 17:00u (sorry boss).

These visitors land on the website, but never chat. Guess what, they're behind a firewall. I would like to have a chat that runs through HTTP. Yeah, yeah, I know too much overhead, no end-of connection detected, blablabla.

I'm really not interested in stories about loads, etc. Only, if it is technically possible with Unity. Like to hear from you. Thanks!
