It's been a while since we've sent out any changes to CoralCDN, but two
1. CoralCDN now listens on both port 8090 AND 8080. Therefore, you can
now access Coral by adding 'nyud.net:8080' to any URL.
We actually recommend that people transition to using port 8080:
Many corporate firewalls---that otherwise block port 8090---will
actually let requests to port 8080 through, as it's a standard
alternative to port 80 for running web servers.
We will still continue to offer service on port 8090 for the near
future for backwards compatibility.
2. We've greatly improved the speed by which web proxies can restart
after failure: A proxy now fills its in-memory metadata file cache
of asynchronously, instead of as a blocking operation at startup.
