      <LI><CODE>AuthUserFile</CODE> requires a full pathname. In earlier
          versions of NCSA httpd and Apache, you could use a filename
          relative to the .htaccess file. This could be a major security hole,
  !       as it made it trivially easy to make a ".htpass" file in the a 
          directory easily accessible by the world. We recommend you store
          your passwords outside your document tree.

  !   <LI>Icons for FancyIndexing broken - well, no, they're not broken, we've just
upgraded the

    <a href="mailto:kevinh@eit.com">Kevin Hughes</a> at
  ! <a href="http://www.eit.com">EIT</a>.
  !   If you are using the same srm.conf from an old distribution, make sure you add the new
  !   AddIcon, AddIconByType, and DefaultIcon commands.
    
      <P>
    
  !   <LI>Under IRIX, the "Group" directive in httpd.conf needs to be a valid group
name 
  !   (i.e. "nogroup") not the numeric group ID.  The distribution httpd.conf, and earlier

  !   ones, had the default Group be "#-1", which was causing silent exits at startup.<p>
    
    <li><code>.asis</code> files: Apache 0.6.5 did not require a Status
header;
    it added one automatically if the .asis file contained a Location header.
