<change type="bug" ref="1809,1913">
<para>When switching to a new VCL configuration, a race
condition exists which may cause Varnish to reference a backend
which no longer exists (see <ticket ref="144"/>). This race
condition has not been entirely eliminated, but it should occur
less frequently.</para>
</change>
<change type="bug" ref="1942">
<para>When dropping a TCP session before any requests were
processed, an assertion would be triggered due to an
uninitialized timestamp (see <ticket ref="132"/>). The
timestamp is now correctly initialized.</para>
</change>
<change type="bug" ref="1955,1976,1977">
<para>Varnish will now correctly generate a <code>Date:</code>
header for every response instead of copying the one it got from
the backend (see <ticket ref="157"/>).</para>
</change>
<change type="bug" ref="1971">
<para>Comparisons in VCL which involve a non-existent string
(usually a header which is not present in the request or object
being processed) would cause a NULL pointer dereference; now the
comparison will simply fail.</para>
</change>
<change type="bug" ref="1972">
<para>A bug in the VCL compiler which would cause a double-free
when processing <code>include</code> directives has been
fixed.</para>
</change>
<change type="bug" ref="1991">
<para>A resource leak in the worker thread management code has
been fixed.</para>
</change>
<change type="bug" ref="1809">
<para>When connecting to a backend, Varnish will usually get the
address from a cache. When the cache is refreshed, existing
connections may end up with a reference to an address structure
which no longer exists, resulting in a crash. This race
condition has been somewhat mitigated, but not entirely
eliminated (see <ticket ref="144"/>.)</para>
</change>
<change type="bug" ref="1888">
<para>Varnish will now pass the correct protocol version in pipe
mode: the backend will get what the client sent, and vice
versa.</para>
</change>
<change type="bug" ref="2057,2077,2080,2086">
<para>The core of the pipe mode code has been rewritten to
increase robustness and eliminate spurious error messages when
either end closes the connection in a manner Varnish did not
anticipate.</para>
</change>
<change type="bug" ref="2181">
<para>A memory leak in the backend code has been plugged.</para>
</change>
<change type="bug" ref="2232">
<para>When using the <code>kqueue</code> acceptor, if a client
shuts down the request side of the connection (as many clients
do after sending their final request), it was possible for the
acceptor code to receive the <code>EOF</code> event and recycle
the session while the last request was still being serviced,
resulting in a assertion failure and a crash when the worker
thread later tried to delete the session. This should no longer
happen (see <ticket ref="162"/>.)</para>
</change>
<change type="bug" ref="2275">
<para>A mismatch between the recorded length of a cached object
and the amount of data actually present in cache for that object
can occasionally occur (see <ticket ref="167"/>.) This has been
partially fixed, but may still occur for error pages generated
by Varnish when a problem arises while retrieving an object from
the backend.</para>
</change>
<change type="bug" ref="2285,2286">
<para>Some socket-related system calls may return unexpected
error codes when operating on a TCP connection that has been
shut down at the other end. These error codes would previously
cause assertion failures, but are now recognized as harmless
conditions.</para>

<para>Pressing <code>0</code> though <code>9</code> while

interval to the corresponding power of two, in seconds.</para>

<change type="enh">
<para>The <code>varnishncsa</code> tool can now daemonize and
write a PID file like <code>varnishlog</code>, using the same
command-line options. It will also reopen its output upon receipt
of a <code>SIGHUP</code> if invoked with <code>-w</code>.</para>

<change type="enh" ref="2033">
<para>Varnish's <code>&lt;queue.h&gt;</code> has been modified
to avoid conflicts with <code>&lt;sys/queue.h&gt;</code> on
platforms where the latter is included indirectly through system
headers.</para>

<para>Several steps have been taken towards Solaris
support, but this is not yet complete.</para>
</change>
<change type="bug" ref="2116,2154">
<para>When <code>configure</code> was run without an explicit
prefix, Varnish's idea of the default state directory would be
garbage and a state directory would have to be specified
manually with <code>-n</code>. This has been corrected.</para>
