  -Changes with Apache 2.0a6
  -  *) Add support to Apache and APR for dsos on OS/390.  [Greg Ames]
  +Changes with Apache 2.0a7
  +  *) Fix mod_log_config so that it compiles cleanly with BUFFERED_LOGS
  +     [Mike Abbott <mja@sgi.com>]
  +
  +  *) Remove ap_send_fb.  This is no longer used in Apache, and it doesn't
  +     make much sense, because Apache uses buckets instead of BUFFs now.
  +     [Ryan Bloom]
  +
  +  *) send_the_file now falls back to a read/write loop on platforms that
  +     do not have sendfile.
  +     [Ryan Bloom and Brian Havard]
  +
  +  *) Install apachectl correctly, and substitute the proper values so
  +     that it works again.  [Ryan Bloom]
  +
  +  *) Better(??) handle platforms that lack sendfile().
  +     [Jim Jagielski]
  +
  +  *) APR now has UUID generation/formatting/parsing support.
  +     [Greg Stein]
  +
  +  *) Begin the http_filter.  This is an input filter that understands
  +     the absolute basic amount required to parse an HTTP Request.  The
  +     goal is to be able to split headers from request body before passing
  +     the data back to the other filters.
  +     [Ryan Bloom]
  +
  +  *) Bring forward from 1.3.13 the config directory implementation
  +     [Jim Jagielski]
  +
  +  *) install apxs if it is created
  +     [Ryan Bloom]
  +
  +  *) Added APR_IS_STATUS_condition test macros to eliminate canonical error
  +     conversions.  [William Rowe]
  +
  +  *) Now that we have ap_add_input_filter(), rename ap_add_filter() to 
  +     ap_add_output_filter().  [Jeff Trawick]
  +
  +  *) Multiple build and configuration fixes
  +    Build process:
  +
  +      -add datadir and localstatedir substitutions
  +      -fix layout name
  +      -fix logfilename misspelling
  +      -fix evaluation of installation dir variables and
  +      -replace $foobar by $(foobar) to be usefull in the makefile
  +    
  +    Cross compile:
  +    
  +      -add rules for cross-compiling in rules.mk. Okay, rule to check for
  +       $CC_FOR_BUILD is still missing
  +      -use CHECK_TOOL instead of CHECK_PROG for ranlib
  +      -add missing "AR=@AR@" to severaly Makefile.in's
  +      -cache result for "struct rlimit"
  +      -compile all helper programs with native and cross compiler
  +       and use the native version to generate header file
  +     ["Rüdiger" Kuhlmann <Tadu@gmx.de>]
  +
  +  *) Prepare our autoconf setup for autoconf 2.14a and for cross-
  +     compiling.
  +     ["Rüdiger" Kuhlmann <Tadu@gmx.de>]
  +
  +  *) Fix a bug where a client which only sends \n to delimit header
  +     lines (netcat) gets a strange looking HTTP_NOT_IMPLEMENTED 
  +     message.  Start working on ebcdic co-existance with input 
  +     filtering.
  +     [William Rowe, Greg Ames]
  +
  +  *) If mod_so is enabled in the server always create libexec, even
  +     if there are no modules installed in this directory.  This is a
  +     requirement for APXS to work correctly.
  +     [Ryan Bloom]
  +
  +  *) Connection oriented output filters are now stored in the 
  +     conn_rec instead of the request_rec.  This allows us to add the
  +     output filter in the pre-connection phase instead of the
  +     post_read_request phase, which keeps us from trying to write an
  +     error page before we have a filter to write to the network.
  +     [Ryan Bloom, Jeff Trawick, and Greg Ames]
  +
  +  *) Cleaning up an mmap bucket no longer deletes the mmap.  An
  +     mmap can be used across multiple buckets (default_handler with
  +     byte ranges, mod_file_cache, mod_mmap_static), so cleanup of
  +     the mmap itself can't be associated with the bucket.
  +     [Jeff Trawick]
   
  -  *) Add a chunking filter to Apache.  This brings us one step closer
  -     to removing BUFF. [Ryan Bloom]
  +  *) Add .dll caching directive ISAPICacheFile to mod_isapi.
  +     [William Rowe]
   
  -  *) Apache 2.0 has been completely documented using Scandoc.  The
  -     docs can be generated by running 'make docs'.  [Ryan Bloom]
  +  *) Radical surgery to improve mod_isapi support under Win32.
  +     Includes a number of newer ServerSupportFunction calls, support
  +     for ReadClient (in order to retrieve POSTs greater than 48KB),
  +     and general bug fixes to more reliably load ISAPI .dll's and
  +     prevent leaking handle resources.  Note: There are still 
  +     discrepancies between IIS's and Apache's ServerVariables, and
  +     async calls are still not supported.  Additional warnings are
  +     logged to facilitate debugging of unsupported ISAPI calls.
  +     [William Rowe]
  +
  +  *) Add input filtering to Apache.  The basic idea for the input
  +     filters is the same as the ideas for output filters.  The biggest
  +     difference is that instead of calling ap_pass_brigade, ap_get_brigade
  +     should be called, and the order of execution for the filter itself is
  +     different.  When writing an output filter, a brigade is passed in,
  +     and filters operate directly on that brigade, when done, they call
  +     ap_pass_brigade.  Input filters are the exact opposite.  Because input
  +     is not a push operation, filters first call ap_get_brigade.  When this
  +     function returns, the input filter will be left with a valid brigade.
  +     The input filter should then operate on the brigade, and return.
  +     [Ryan Bloom]
  +
  +  *) Fix building on BSD/OS using its native make. The build system
  +     falls back to the BSD .include directive on that host platform.
  +     [Sascha Schumann]
  +
  +  *) Expand dbmmanage to allow -d -m -s -p options for Crypt, MD5,
  +     SHA1 and plaintext password encodings.  Make feature tests a
  +     bit more flexible.  [William Rowe]
  +
  +  *) Charset translation: mod_charset_lite handles output content 
  +     translation in a filter.  mod_charset_lite no longer ignores 
  +     subrequests.  A bunch of cruft related to BUFF's support for
  +     translating response bodies was removed.  [Jeff Trawick]
  +
  +  *) Move the addition of the CORE filter to the post_read_request
  +     hook in http_core.c.  This removes the need to add the filter in
  +     multiple places and allows for an SSL module to be added much
  +     simpler. [Ryan Bloom]
  +
  +  *) Fix a security problem that affects certain configurations of
  +     mod_rewrite. If the result of a RewriteRule is a filename that
  +     contains expansion specifiers, especially regexp backreferences
  +     $0..$9 and %0..%9, then it may be possible for an attacker to
  +     access any file on the web server. [Tony Finch]
  +
  +  *) Fix a bug where errors that are detected during early request parsing
  +     don't produce visible HTTP error messages at the browser, because
  +     the core_filter wasn't present.  [Greg Ames]
  +
  +  *) Provide apr_socklen_t as a portability aid. 
  +     [Victor  J. Orlikowski]
  +
  +  *) Overhaul of dbmmanage to allow a groups arg (as in Apache 1.2)
  +     as well as a comment arg to the add, adduser and update cmds.
  +     update allows the user to clear or preserve pw/groups/comment.
  +     Fixed a bug in dbmmanage that prevented the check option from 
  +     parsing a password followed by :group... text.  Corrected the
  +     seed calcualation for Win32 systems, and added -lsdbm support.
  +     [William Rowe]
   
  -  *) Add filtered I/O to Apache.  This is based on bucket brigades,
  -     Currently the buckets still use BUFF under the covers, but that
  -     should change quickly.  The only currently written filter is the
  -     core filter which just calls ap_bwrite.  [The Apache Group]
  +  *) Configured mod_auth_dbm to compile with sdbmlib under Win32.
  +     [William Rowe]
   
  -  *) APR locks on Unix: Let APR_LOCKALL locks work when APR isn't
  -     built with thread support.  [Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Avoid a segfault when parsing .htaccess files.  An 
  +     uninitialized tree pointer was passed to ap_build_config().
  +     [Jeff Trawick]
   
  -  *) Abort configuration if --with-layout was specified and there's
  -     no layout definition file.  [Ken Coar]
  +  *) Change the way that inet_addr & inet_network are checked for
  +     in APR's configure process to allow BeOS BONE to correctly
  +     find them. With this change BeOS BONE now builds from source
  +     with no problems.  [David Reid]
  +
  +  *) Fix a bug in apr_create_process() for Unix.  The NULL signifying
  +     the end of the parameters to execve() was stored in the wrong
  +     location, overlaying the storage beyond the newargs[] array and 
  +     also passing uninitialized storage to execve(), which would 
  +     sometimes fail with EFAULT.  [Jeff Trawick]
  +
  +  *) Fix a bug parsing configuration file containers.  With a sequence
  +     like this in the config file
  +
  +       <IfModule mod_kilroy.c>
  +       any stuff
  +       </IfModule>
  +       <IfModule mod_lovejoy.c>
  +       (blank line)
  +       any stuff
  +       </IfModule>
  +
  +     the second container would be terminated at the blank line due to
  +     sediment in the buffer from reading the prior </IfModule> and an 
  +     error message would be generated for the real </IfModule> for the
  +     second container.  Also due to this problem, any two characters 
  +     could be used for "</" in the close of a container.  
  +     [Jeff Trawick]
   
  -  *) Add support for '--with-port=n' option to configure.  [Ken Coar]
  +  *) ap_add_filter prototype changed to remove the ctx pointer.  The
  +     pointer still remains in the filter structure, but it can not be
  +     a part of the ap_add_filter prototype.  The reason is that when
  +     the core uses AddFilter to add a filter to the stack it doesn't
  +     know how to allocate the ctx pointer, or even how much memory should
  +     be allocated.  The filters will have to be responsible for allocating
  +     the ctx memory when they need it.
  +     [Ryan Bloom]
  +
  +  *) Add an AddFilter directive.  This directive takes a list of filters
  +     that should be activated for the requested resource.
  +     [Ryan Bloom]
  +
  +  *) apr_snprintf(): Get quad format strings working on OS/390 (and perhaps
  +     some other platforms).  [Jeff Trawick]
  +
  +  *) Modify mod_include to be a filter.  Currently, it has only been tested
  +     on actual files, but it should work for CGI scripts too.
  +     [Ryan Bloom]
   
  -  *) Add support for extension methods for the Allow response header
  -     field, and an API routine for accessing r->allowed and the
  -     list of extension methods in a unified manner.  [Ken Coar]
  +  *) apr_putc(), apr_puts() for Unix: handle buffered files and interrupted
  +     writes.  apr_flush() for Unix: handle interrupted writes.
  +     [Jeff Trawick]
   
  -  *) mod_cern_meta: fix broken file reading loop in scan_meta_file().
  -     [Rob Simonson <simo@us.ibm.com>]
  +  *) NameVirtualHost can now take "*" as an argument instead of
  +     an IP address. This allows you to create a purely name-based
  +     virtual hosting server that does not have any IP addresses in
  +     the configuration file and which ignores the local address
  +     of any connections. PR #5595, PR #4455 [Tony Finch]
  +
  +  *) Fix some compile warnings in mod_mmap_static.c
  +     [Mike Abbott <mja@sgi.com>]
  +
  +  *) Fix chunking problem with CGI scripts.  The general problem was that
  +     the CGI modules were adding an EOS bucket and then the core added an
  +     EOS bucket.  The chunking filter finalizes the chunked response when it
  +     encounters an EOS bucket.  Because two EOS buckets were sent, we
  +     finalized the response twice.  The fix is to make sure we only send one
  +     EOS, by utilizing a flag in the request_rec.
  +     [Ryan Bloom]
  +
  +  *) apr_put_os_file() now sets up the unget byte appropriately on Unix
  +     and Win32.  Previously, the first read from an apr_file_t set up via
  +     apr_put_os_file() would return a '\0'.  [Jeff Trawick]
  +
  +  *) Mod_cgid now creates a single element bucket brigade, with a pipe
  +     bucket, instead of using BUFF's and ap_r*.
  +     [Ryan Bloom]
  +
  +  *) APRVARS.in no longer overwrites the EXTRA_LIBS variable.
  +     [Mike Abbott <mja@sgi.com>]
  +
  +  *) Remove ap_bopenf from buff code.  This required modifying the file_cache
  +     code to use APR file's directly instead of going through BUFFs.
  +     [Ryan Bloom]
  +
  +  *) Fix compile break on some platforms for mod_mime_magic.c
  +     [John K. Sterling <sterling@covalent.net>]
  +
  +  *) Fix merging of AddDefaultCharset directive.
  +     PR #5872 (1.3) [Jun Kuriyama <kuriyama@imgsrc.co.jp>]
  +
  +  *) Minor revamp of the rlimit sections of code. We now test
  +     explicitly for setrlimit and getrlimit. Also, unixd_set_rlimit()
  +     is now "available" even if the platform doesn't support
  +     the rlimit family (it's just a noop though). [Jim Jagielski]
  +
  +  *) Migrate the pre-selection of which MPM to use for specific
  +     platforms to hints.m4, which contains (or should contain)
  +     all platform specific "hints". [Jim Jagielski]
   
  -  *) Get xlate builds working again.  The apr renaming in 2.0a5 broke
  -     APACHE_XLATE builds.  [Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Remove IOLs from Apache.  With filtering, IOLs are no longer necessary
  +     [Ryan Bloom]
   
  -  *) A configuration file parsing problem was fixed.  When the
  -     configuration file started with an IfModule/IfDefine container,
  -     only the last statement in the container would be retained.
  +  *) Add tables with non-string/binary values to APR.
  +     [Ken Coar]
  +
  +  *) Fix some bad calls to ap_log_rerror() in mod_rewrite. 
        [Jeff Trawick]
  +
  +  *) Update PCRE to version 3.2.  [Ryan Bloom]
  +
  +  *) Change the way buckets' destroy functions are called so that
  +     they can be more directly used when changing the type of a
  +     bucket in place. [Tony Finch]
  +
  +  *) Add generic support for reference-counting the resources used by
  +     buckets, and alter the HEAP and MMAP buckets to use it. Change
  +     the way buckets are initialised to support changing the type of
  +     buckets in place, and use it when setting aside TRANSIENT buckets.
  +     Change the implementation of TRANSIENT buckets so that it can be
  +     mostly shared with IMMORTAL buckets, which are now implemented.

  +      -compile all helper programs with native and cross compiler
  +       and use the native version to generate header file
  +     ["Rüdiger" Kuhlmann <Tadu@gmx.de>]
  +
  +  *) Prepare our autoconf setup for autoconf 2.14a and for cross-
  +     compiling.
  +     ["Rüdiger" Kuhlmann <Tadu@gmx.de>]
  +
  +  *) Fix a bug where a client which only sends \n to delimit header
  +     lines (netcat) gets a strange looking HTTP_NOT_IMPLEMENTED 
  +     message.  Start working on ebcdic co-existance with input 
  +     filtering.
  +     [William Rowe, Greg Ames]
  +
  +  *) If mod_so is enabled in the server always create libexec, even
  +     if there are no modules installed in this directory.  This is a
  +     requirement for APXS to work correctly.
  +     [Ryan Bloom]
  +
  +  *) Connection oriented output filters are now stored in the 
  +     conn_rec instead of the request_rec.  This allows us to add the
  +     output filter in the pre-connection phase instead of the
  +     post_read_request phase, which keeps us from trying to write an
  +     error page before we have a filter to write to the network.
  +     [Ryan Bloom, Jeff Trawick, and Greg Ames]
  +
  +  *) Cleaning up an mmap bucket no longer deletes the mmap.  An
  +     mmap can be used across multiple buckets (default_handler with
  +     byte ranges, mod_file_cache, mod_mmap_static), so cleanup of
  +     the mmap itself can't be associated with the bucket.
  +     [Jeff Trawick]
  +
  +  *) Add .dll caching directive ISAPICacheFile to mod_isapi.
  +     [William Rowe]
   
  -  *) Add a chunking filter to Apache.  This brings us one step closer
  -     to removing BUFF. [Ryan Bloom]
  +  *) Radical surgery to improve mod_isapi support under Win32.
  +     Includes a number of newer ServerSupportFunction calls, support
  +     for ReadClient (in order to retrieve POSTs greater than 48KB),
  +     and general bug fixes to more reliably load ISAPI .dll's and
  +     prevent leaking handle resources.  Note: There are still 
  +     discrepancies between IIS's and Apache's ServerVariables, and
  +     async calls are still not supported.  Additional warnings are
  +     logged to facilitate debugging of unsupported ISAPI calls.
  +     [William Rowe]
  +
  +  *) Add input filtering to Apache.  The basic idea for the input
  +     filters is the same as the ideas for output filters.  The biggest
  +     difference is that instead of calling ap_pass_brigade, ap_get_brigade
  +     should be called, and the order of execution for the filter itself is
  +     different.  When writing an output filter, a brigade is passed in,
  +     and filters operate directly on that brigade, when done, they call
  +     ap_pass_brigade.  Input filters are the exact opposite.  Because input
  +     is not a push operation, filters first call ap_get_brigade.  When this
  +     function returns, the input filter will be left with a valid brigade.
  +     The input filter should then operate on the brigade, and return.
  +     [Ryan Bloom]
  +
  +  *) Fix building on BSD/OS using its native make. The build system
  +     falls back to the BSD .include directive on that host platform.
  +     [Sascha Schumann]
  +
  +  *) Expand dbmmanage to allow -d -m -s -p options for Crypt, MD5,
  +     SHA1 and plaintext password encodings.  Make feature tests a
  +     bit more flexible.  [William Rowe]
  +
  +  *) Charset translation: mod_charset_lite handles output content 
  +     translation in a filter.  mod_charset_lite no longer ignores 
  +     subrequests.  A bunch of cruft related to BUFF's support for
  +     translating response bodies was removed.  [Jeff Trawick]
  +
  +  *) Move the addition of the CORE filter to the post_read_request
  +     hook in http_core.c.  This removes the need to add the filter in
  +     multiple places and allows for an SSL module to be added much
  +     simpler. [Ryan Bloom]
  +
  +  *) Fix a security problem that affects certain configurations of
  +     mod_rewrite. If the result of a RewriteRule is a filename that
  +     contains expansion specifiers, especially regexp backreferences
  +     $0..$9 and %0..%9, then it may be possible for an attacker to
  +     access any file on the web server. [Tony Finch]
  +
  +  *) Fix a bug where errors that are detected during early request parsing
  +     don't produce visible HTTP error messages at the browser, because
  +     the core_filter wasn't present.  [Greg Ames]
  +
  +  *) Provide apr_socklen_t as a portability aid. 
  +     [Victor  J. Orlikowski]
  +
  +  *) Overhaul of dbmmanage to allow a groups arg (as in Apache 1.2)
  +     as well as a comment arg to the add, adduser and update cmds.
  +     update allows the user to clear or preserve pw/groups/comment.
  +     Fixed a bug in dbmmanage that prevented the check option from 
  +     parsing a password followed by :group... text.  Corrected the
  +     seed calcualation for Win32 systems, and added -lsdbm support.
  +     [William Rowe]
   
  -  *) Apache 2.0 has been completely documented using Scandoc.  The
  -     docs can be generated by running 'make docs'.  [Ryan Bloom]
  +  *) Configured mod_auth_dbm to compile with sdbmlib under Win32.
  +     [William Rowe]
   
  -  *) Add filtered I/O to Apache.  This is based on bucket brigades,
  -     Currently the buckets still use BUFF under the covers, but that
  -     should change quickly.  The only currently written filter is the
  -     core filter which just calls ap_bwrite.  [The Apache Group]
  +  *) Avoid a segfault when parsing .htaccess files.  An 
  +     uninitialized tree pointer was passed to ap_build_config().
  +     [Jeff Trawick]
   
  -  *) APR locks on Unix: Let APR_LOCKALL locks work when APR isn't
  -     built with thread support.  [Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Change the way that inet_addr & inet_network are checked for
  +     in APR's configure process to allow BeOS BONE to correctly
  +     find them. With this change BeOS BONE now builds from source
  +     with no problems.  [David Reid]
  +
  +  *) Fix a bug in apr_create_process() for Unix.  The NULL signifying
  +     the end of the parameters to execve() was stored in the wrong
  +     location, overlaying the storage beyond the newargs[] array and 
  +     also passing uninitialized storage to execve(), which would 
  +     sometimes fail with EFAULT.  [Jeff Trawick]
  +
  +  *) Fix a bug parsing configuration file containers.  With a sequence
  +     like this in the config file
  +
  +       <IfModule mod_kilroy.c>
  +       any stuff
  +       </IfModule>
  +       <IfModule mod_lovejoy.c>
  +       (blank line)
  +       any stuff
  +       </IfModule>
  +
  +     the second container would be terminated at the blank line due to
  +     sediment in the buffer from reading the prior </IfModule> and an 
  +     error message would be generated for the real </IfModule> for the
  +     second container.  Also due to this problem, any two characters 
  +     could be used for "</" in the close of a container.  
  +     [Jeff Trawick]
   
  -  *) Abort configuration if --with-layout was specified and there's
  -     no layout definition file.  [Ken Coar]
  +  *) ap_add_filter prototype changed to remove the ctx pointer.  The
  +     pointer still remains in the filter structure, but it can not be
  +     a part of the ap_add_filter prototype.  The reason is that when
  +     the core uses AddFilter to add a filter to the stack it doesn't
  +     know how to allocate the ctx pointer, or even how much memory should
  +     be allocated.  The filters will have to be responsible for allocating
  +     the ctx memory when they need it.
  +     [Ryan Bloom]
  +
  +  *) Add an AddFilter directive.  This directive takes a list of filters
  +     that should be activated for the requested resource.
  +     [Ryan Bloom]
  +
  +  *) apr_snprintf(): Get quad format strings working on OS/390 (and perhaps
  +     some other platforms).  [Jeff Trawick]
  +
  +  *) Modify mod_include to be a filter.  Currently, it has only been tested
  +     on actual files, but it should work for CGI scripts too.
  +     [Ryan Bloom]
   
  -  *) Add support for '--with-port=n' option to configure.  [Ken Coar]
  +  *) apr_putc(), apr_puts() for Unix: handle buffered files and interrupted
  +     writes.  apr_flush() for Unix: handle interrupted writes.
  +     [Jeff Trawick]
   
  -  *) Add support for extension methods for the Allow response header
  -     field, and an API routine for accessing r->allowed and the
  -     list of extension methods in a unified manner.  [Ken Coar]
  +  *) NameVirtualHost can now take "*" as an argument instead of
  +     an IP address. This allows you to create a purely name-based
  +     virtual hosting server that does not have any IP addresses in
  +     the configuration file and which ignores the local address
  +     of any connections. PR #5595, PR #4455 [Tony Finch]
  +
  +  *) Fix some compile warnings in mod_mmap_static.c
  +     [Mike Abbott <mja@sgi.com>]
  +
  +  *) Fix chunking problem with CGI scripts.  The general problem was that
  +     the CGI modules were adding an EOS bucket and then the core added an
  +     EOS bucket.  The chunking filter finalizes the chunked response when it
  +     encounters an EOS bucket.  Because two EOS buckets were sent, we
  +     finalized the response twice.  The fix is to make sure we only send one
  +     EOS, by utilizing a flag in the request_rec.
  +     [Ryan Bloom]
  +
  +  *) apr_put_os_file() now sets up the unget byte appropriately on Unix
  +     and Win32.  Previously, the first read from an apr_file_t set up via
  +     apr_put_os_file() would return a '\0'.  [Jeff Trawick]
  +
  +  *) Mod_cgid now creates a single element bucket brigade, with a pipe
  +     bucket, instead of using BUFF's and ap_r*.
  +     [Ryan Bloom]
  +
  +  *) APRVARS.in no longer overwrites the EXTRA_LIBS variable.
  +     [Mike Abbott <mja@sgi.com>]
  +
  +  *) Remove ap_bopenf from buff code.  This required modifying the file_cache
  +     code to use APR file's directly instead of going through BUFFs.
  +     [Ryan Bloom]
  +
  +  *) Fix compile break on some platforms for mod_mime_magic.c
  +     [John K. Sterling <sterling@covalent.net>]
  +
  +  *) Fix merging of AddDefaultCharset directive.
  +     PR #5872 (1.3) [Jun Kuriyama <kuriyama@imgsrc.co.jp>]
  +
  +  *) Minor revamp of the rlimit sections of code. We now test
  +     explicitly for setrlimit and getrlimit. Also, unixd_set_rlimit()
  +     is now "available" even if the platform doesn't support
  +     the rlimit family (it's just a noop though). [Jim Jagielski]
  +
  +  *) Migrate the pre-selection of which MPM to use for specific
  +     platforms to hints.m4, which contains (or should contain)
  +     all platform specific "hints". [Jim Jagielski]
   
  -  *) mod_cern_meta: fix broken file reading loop in scan_meta_file().
  -     [Rob Simonson <simo@us.ibm.com>]
  +  *) Remove IOLs from Apache.  With filtering, IOLs are no longer necessary
  +     [Ryan Bloom]
   
  -  *) Get xlate builds working again.  The apr renaming in 2.0a5 broke
  -     APACHE_XLATE builds.  [Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Add tables with non-string/binary values to APR.
  +     [Ken Coar]
   
  -  *) A configuration file parsing problem was fixed.  When the
  -     configuration file started with an IfModule/IfDefine container,
  -     only the last statement in the container would be retained.
  +  *) Fix some bad calls to ap_log_rerror() in mod_rewrite. 
        [Jeff Trawick]
   
  +  *) Update PCRE to version 3.2.  [Ryan Bloom]
  +
  +  *) Change the way buckets' destroy functions are called so that
  +     they can be more directly used when changing the type of a
  +     bucket in place. [Tony Finch]
  +
  +  *) Add generic support for reference-counting the resources used by
  +     buckets, and alter the HEAP and MMAP buckets to use it. Change
  +     the way buckets are initialised to support changing the type of
  +     buckets in place, and use it when setting aside TRANSIENT buckets.
  +     Change the implementation of TRANSIENT buckets so that it can be
  +     mostly shared with IMMORTAL buckets, which are now implemented.
  +     [Tony Finch]
