Good question. When I generate the docs locally, it has content.

That info seems to be missing in the docs, unfortunately. Looking up 
in the CHANGES or in the svn history seems to be the only way.

Changes with APR-util 1.5.0


  *) apr_password_validate, apr_bcrypt_encode: Add support for bcrypt
     encoded passwords. The bcrypt implementation uses code from
     crypt_blowfish written by Solar Designer <solar openwall com>.
     apr_bcrypt_encode creates hashes with "$2y$" prefix, but
     apr_password_validate also accepts the old prefix "$2a$". PR
