Issue with detecting type of proxy

According to the latest changes which were provided by Sourceforge team it's not possible to differ Anonymous and HighAnonymous proxies of HTTP type. All of them are detecting as Anonymous right now. You may use different service for detecting proxy type if it's issue for you. For that you need to change your proxy checker into http://checkerproxy.net/
