What's New in This Release:
· The source block takes a new argument: continue. With this command an ipaddress or user can be configured in serval Sourceblocks. If a client is found but not blocked, squidGuard will continue to search in the next source block, if the continue command is defined. Thanks to Valentin Chopov for the patch
