Aletheia is a browser-like application for sending raw HTTP requests. It is designed for debugging and finding security issues in Web applications. It is possible to apply filters on every request and response which can modify the content, for making Basic Authentication or OAuth requests, for example. Because it is possible to modify every bit of the request, it is easy to exploit Web applications. That means you can set, for example, custom Cookies or User-Agents, or send file uploads to the server. It uses the Apache HTTP core components library to send HTTP requests. This application also helps you understand how the HTTP protocol works.

This release adds syntax highlighting and the ability to click on hyperlinks within the textarea using the rsyntaxtextarea library. It adds an option to insert sample form posts and file upload requests. It adds a request processor, which writes the request to the stdin of a given command and uses the stdout as request. In this way you can use any scripting language to build your request. This release implements a JSON formatter and fixes some bugs
