  +  *) New child_exit function for module API
  +       A new phase for Apache's API is called prior to termination of
  +       a server child, e.g. when max_requests_per_child is reached.
  +       This allow for modules to tear down anything that need to be done 
  +       once per processes. For example, connections to databases.
     *) Totally overhauled mod_rewrite:
          First the last officially available release of mod_rewrite (3.0.9) was

  +  *) Simple transport and i/o hooks in place
  +       It is possible to re-define the standalone_main function 
  +       (with -DSTANDALONE_MAIN) so modules may plugin support for
  +       transport protocols other than tcp, e.g. DCE RPC
  +       A new slot in the BUFF structure `t_handle' is provided to
  +       store the plugin's transport related structures.
  +       Support for sfio can be enabled with -DB_SFIO, which allows
  +       modules to re-define lowest-level reads and writes so i/o
  +       may travel through something other than a tcp socket.
  +       In addition, sfio support allows plugin modules to manipulate
  +       the output of all modules, e.g. parsing the output of CGI programs.
  +  *) New dbmmange script
  +       A new Perl5 version of dbmmange allows modification of
  +       various databases, Berkley DB, ndbm and gdbm.  Security has 
  +       been tightened such that passwords will no longer be echoed to
  +       the terminal, the seed for srand is more random and `add' will not

  +       instead.  New commands include the `check' command to check a
  +       users' password and the `import' command to convert existing
  +       password text-files or dbm files exported with `view'. 
  +  *) New API function: is_initial_req()
  +       The function returns true only for the initial call during a
  +       given HTTP request.  If the request is a sub-request or
  +       internal redirect, the function will return false.
