  +<h1>Apache 1.3.11 Released</h1>
  +<p>
  +The :a href="http://www.apache.org/">Apache Software Foundation</a>
  +and The Apache Server Project are
  +pleased to announce the release of version 1.3.11 of the Apache HTTP server.
  +Apache 1.3.10 was not released due to a last-minute bug found and
  +fixed after the source was tagged and tested.
  +<p>
  +This new Apache version incorporates numerous significant improvements
   to the server.  Apart from portability and security fixes, documentation
   enhancements, performance improvements, and assorted other minor
   features or fixes notable changes are:
  -
  -<UL>
  - <li>A new experimental digest authentication module, compatible with
  -  the latest digest-auth standards, has been added to the base package.  
  - <li>The <code>expat</code> XML parser has been added to allow
  -  modules to deal with XML if necessary.
  - <li>The processing on Windows of basic authentication passwords in
  -  <code>mod_auth</code> password files has been fixed.  In addition,
  -  the SHA1 encoding algorithm has been added to those available and
  -  known to <code>htpasswd</code>, and passwords on Windows may be
  -  longer than the inadvertent 1.3.6 limit of 8 characters.
  - <li>Several problems with <code>mod_access</code> and CIDR addresses
have
  -  been fixed.
  - <li>Support has been added or enhanced for Tandem, TPF, and
  -  the Macintosh OS X platforms.
  - <li>Some processing of <code>Vary</code> response header fields has
been
  -  corrected.
  - <li>Restarts with <code>apache&nbsp;-k</code> on Windows are now
honoured
  -  immediately, instead of after the system's listen queue is drained.
  - <li><code>Expect: 100-continue</code> processing has been corrected.
  - <li>Script errors on Windows are now copied to the server's error log
  -  if the scripts fail; this is closer to the Unix behaviour.
  - <li>Mass-vhosting has been added (see the documentation for module
  -  <code>mod_vhost_alias</code>).
  - <li>The server no longer automatically checks for the existence of a valid
  -  <code>DocumentRoot</code> for all virtual hosts; this was imposing
  -  a significant startup penalty on systems with numerous vhosts.
  -  The default behaviour has changed to <i>not</i> performing this
  -  check, but it can be re-enabled by specifying the <code>-t</code>
  -  command line option for full configuration testing.
  - <li><code>apache -S</code> on Windows now exits properly after
  -  completing the configuration testing.
  - <li><code>SetEnvIf*</code> directives can now test the values of
  -  environment variables as well as request attributes.  In addition,
  -  the request protocol and level (<i>e.g.</i>, "<code>HTTP/1.1</code>")
  -  can now be tested.
  - <li>ReadmeName and HeaderName files (<code>mod_autoindex</code>) are
  -  now server-parsable and accessible with MultiViews.
  - <li><code>AddDescription</code> directives now behave as documented
  -  with regard to partial filename matches.
  - <li>The name of the cookie used by <code>mod_usertrack</code> is
  -  now customisable.
  -</UL>
  -
  -<P>
  -A complete listing with detailed descriptions is provided in the
  -src/CHANGES file.
  +<ul>
  +   <li> Binary and shared builds on several platforms have been improved.
  +   <li> The time that a parent waits for its children to die
  +     after <code>SIGKILL</code> has been sent has been reduced.
  +   <li> Various <i>suexec</i> improvements.
  +   <li> More rigorous checking of <code>Host:</code> headers to fix security
problems
  +     with mass name-based virtual hosting.
  +   <li> Addition of the  <code>%q</code> logging format directive (logs
"?" and the query
  +     string part of a query, or the empty string if no query).
  +   <li> Improvement of the <i>OS390</i> port.
  +   <li> Several <i>EBCDIC</i> fixes.
  +   <li> Better error reporting during the "compiler sanity" check.
  +   <li> Fixed the `quad integer' (aka `long long') handling in ap_snprintf.c
  +   <li> mod_rewrite's general substitution function was overhauled.
  +   <li> Several WIN32 bugs have been fixed, including:
  +<ul>
  +     <li> CGIs broken if script calls other programs which deliver on stdout
  +       (Search this file for "DETACHED")
  +     <li> 16 bit CGIs should work now
  +     <li> Server will not start if passed the -d option with spaces in the
  +       argument.
