Subject cvs commit: httpd-2.0 CHANGES

  Modified:    .        CHANGES
    Version 1.338 of mod_mime also tightened the mod_negotiation behavior.
    See changes for a complete description.  Because (in the example) the
    .Z extension doesn't affect negotiated behavior, the files index.html
    and index.Z.html couldn't be distinguished, and the user would get an
    error 406 NOT ACCEPTABLE, which is the _wrong_ answer.

   Changes with Apache 2.0.25-dev
  +  *) Modfied mod_mime to prevent mod_negotation from serving a multiview
  +     of a 'handler' or 'filter', so that any filename extension that does 
  +     not contribute to the negotiated metadata can't be served without
  +     an explicit request.  E.g., if the .Z extension is associated with
  +     an unzip filter, the user request somefile.Z.html, mod_negotiation
  +     won't serve it.  It can serve somefile.Z.html when somefile.Z is
  +     requested, since the .Z extension is explictly requested, if the
  +     .html extension is associated with ContentType text/html.
  +     [William Rowe]
     *) Introduce the AddInputFilter filter[;filter...] ext [ext...]
        and corresponding AddOutputFilter syntax, to insert one or more 
        filters by mod_mime filename extension processing.
