new output filter 'INFLATE' for uncompressing responses.
[Nick Kew <Nick at WebThing dot com>, Ian Holsman]
*) Added new module mod_version, which provides version dependent
configuration containers. [André Malo]
*) mod_log_config now logs all Set-Cookie headers if the %{Set-Cookie}o
format is used. PR 27787. [André Malo]

status and terminate the provider chain prior to checking the password.
[Geoffrey Young]

Don't place script socket inside default server root instead of
actual server root. PR 27886. [Jeff Trawick]

"ProxyErrorOverride On" is configured. PR 20183.
[Marcus Janson <marcus.janson>, Joe Orton]
*) Threaded MPMs for Unix and Win32: Add support for ThreadStackSize
directive (previously NetWare-only) to override default thread
stack size for threads which handle client connections. Required
for some third-party modules on platforms with small default
thread stack size. [Jeff Trawick]
*) minor mod_auth_basic and mod_auth_digest sync. mod_auth_basic
now populates r->user with the (possibly unauthenticated) user,
and mod_auth_digest returns 500 when a provider returns
[Geoffrey Young]
*) The whole codebase was relicensed and is now available under
the Apache License, Version 2.0 (
[Apache Software Foundation]

"make clean" processing. PR 26552. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Add core version query function (ap_get_server_revision) and
accompanying ap_version_t structure (minor MMN bump).
[André Malo]
*) mod_rewrite: EOLs sent by external rewritemaps are now consumed
as whole. That way, on systems with more than one EOL character
rewritemap programs no longer need to switch stdout to binary
mode. PR 25635. [André Malo]
*) mod_rewrite: Introduce the ability to force a content handler via
the [handler=...] flag. [André Malo]
*) mod_rewrite: Introduce the RewriteCond -x check, which returns
true if the pattern is a file with execution permissions.
[André Malo]
*) mod_rewrite: Allow proxying and RewriteRules in directory context
for subrequests. PR 14648, 15114. [André Malo]
*) mod_rewrite: Allow setting of any valid HTTP response code.
PR 25917. [André Malo]
*) mod_rewrite: Cookie creation now works locale independent.
[André Malo]
*) mod_ssl: Add support for distributed session cache using 'distcache'.
[Geoff Thorpe <geoff>]

the Request-URI. PR 21779. [Amit Athavale <amit_athavale>]
*) mod_proxy with ProxyErrorOverride On in a reverse-proxy configuration
attaches a body to the 302 response and a wrong Content-Length header.
PR: 22951 [Ermanno Scaglione scaglione]
*) Bring ErrorHeader concept forward from 1.3, so that response
header fields can be set for return even on errors or external
redirects. [Ken Coar]
*) Fix <Limit> and <LimitExcept> parsing to require a closing '>'
in the initial container. PR 25414.
[Geoffrey Young <geoff>]
*) Clean up httpd -V output: Instead of displaying the MPM source
directory, display the MPM name and some MPM properties.
[Geoffrey Young <geoff>]

cache information in server-status page. [Joe Orton]

[Chris Knight <Christopher.D.Knight>]
*) Log an error when requests for URIs which fail to map to a valid
filesystem name are rejected with 403. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Switch to APR 1.0 API.
*) Major overhaul of mod_include's filter parser. The new parser code
is expected to be more robust and should catch all of the edge cases
that were not handled by the previous one. This includes a binary
incompatible change of mod_include's external API. [André Malo]
*) mod_rewrite: Allow forced mimetypes [T=...] to get expanded.
PR 14223. [André Malo]
*) mod_rewrite: Fix LA-U and LA-F lookups in directory context. Previously
the current rewrite state was just used as lookup path, which lead to
strange and often useless results. Related to PR 8493. [André Malo]
*) Change Listen directive to bind to all addresses when a hostname is
not specified. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Correct failure with Listen directives on machines with IPv6 enabled.
[Colm MacCárthaigh <colm>, Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Fix a link failure in mod_ssl when the OpenSSL libraries contain
the ENGINE functions but the engine header files are missing.
[Cliff Woolley]
*) mod_rewrite: RewriteRules in server context using the force
type feature [T=...] no longer disable MultiViews. [André Malo]
*) mod_rewrite: Allow piped rewrite logs to be relative to ServerRoot.
[André Malo]
*) mod_authz_groupfile: Strip trailing spaces of group names. This
hopefully saves some hours of searching for typos. PR 12863.
[André Malo]
*) mod_actions: Propagate the handler name to the action script via
the REDIRECT_HANDLER environment variable. [André Malo]
*) mod_actions: Introduce the "virtual" modifier to the Action directive,
which allows the use of handlers for virtual locations. PR 8431.
[André Malo]
*) mod_speling: Recognize AcceptPathInfo setting for the particular
location. Default is to reject path information. PR 21059.
[André Malo]
*) mod_ext_filter: Add the ability to filter request bodies.
[Philipp Reisner <philipp.reisner>]
*) Fix some broken log messages in WinNT MPM.
[Juan Rivera <Juan.Rivera>]
*) prefork MPM: Use the right permissions for the directory created
for gprof support. [Jim Carlson <jcarlson>]
*) Fix a compile failure with recent OpenSSL and picky compilers
(e.g., OpenSSL 0.9.7a and xlc_r on AIX). [Jeff Trawick]
*) OpenSSL headers should be included as "openssl/ssl.h", and not rely on
the INCLUDE path to be defined properly.
PR 11310. [Geoff Thorpe <geoff>]
*) Modify APACHE_CHECK_SSL_TOOLKIT to detect SSL-C. [Madhusudan Mathihalli]
*) Replace the APACHE_CHECK_SSL_TOOLKIT method with a cleaner one, using
autoconf tools (AC_CHECK_HEADER, AC_CHECK_LIB etc).
[Geoff Thorpe <geoff>]
*) change directive name from 'compressionlevel' to 'deflatecompressionlevel'
[Ian Holsman, André Malo]
*) mod_negotiation: quality values are now parsed independent from
the current locale. level values are now really parsed as integers.
PR 17564. [André Malo]
*) Extend mod_negotiation to evaluate the environment variables
no-gzip and gzip-only-text/html the same way as mod_deflate does.
[André Malo]
*) mod_rewrite: Fix some problems reporting errors with mapping
programs (RewriteMap prg:/something). [Jeff Trawick]
*) Return 413 if chunk-ext-header is too long rather than reading from
the truncated line. PR 15857. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Allow restart of httpd to occur even with syntax errors in the config
file. PR 16813. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Use APR_LAYOUT instead of APACHE_LAYOUT in configure. PR 15679.
[Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Remove files on 'make distclean' that should be. PR 15592.
[Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Allow apachectl to perform status with links and elinks as well.
[Justin Erenkrantz]
*) mod_log_config change optional hook to return previous handler
[Ian Holsman]
*) Forward port of mod_actions' ability to handle arbitrary methods
with the Script directive. [André Malo]
*) Let suexec send a message to stderr, if it failed or its policy
was violated. This message appears in the error log and allows
for easier debugging. PR 5381, 7638, 8255, 10773. [André Malo]
*) Modify buildconf to copy all required files into httpd's tree.
[Thom May <thom>]
*) Allow mod_dav to do weak entity comparison functions.
[Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Move RFC 1413 ident requests from core to new module mod_ident.
[André Malo]
*) Add mod_authz_owner - a forward port of "Require file-owner"
and "Require file-group", which was already present in version
1.3.21. [André Malo]
*) Add mod_dav_lock - a generic subset of the DAV locking implementation.
[Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Replace some of the mutex locking in the worker MPM with
atomic operations for higher concurrency. [Brian Pane]
*) Allow 'make depend' to work with non-GCC compilers.
[Justin Erenkrantz]
*) If an httpd.conf has commented out AddModule directives,
apxs -i -a will add an un-commented AddModule directive for
the new module, which breaks the config.
PR: 11212 [Joe Orton]
*) Fix mod_proxy handling of filtered input bodies. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Move the check of the Expect request header field after the hook
for ap_post_read_request, since that is the only opportunity for
modules to handle Expect extensions. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Rewrite of aaa modules to an authn/authz model.
