  -Changes with Apache 2.0.35
  + 
  +Changes with Apache 2.0.36
   
  -  *) mod_rewrite: updated to use the new APR global mutex type.
  +  *) Close sockets on worker MPM when doing a graceless restart.
        [Aaron Bannert]
   
  -  *) Fixes for mod_include errors on boundary conditions in which
  -     "<!--#" occurs at the very end of a bucket
  -     [Paul Reder, Brian Pane]
  -
  -  *) worker, prefork, perchild, beos MPMs: Add -DFOREGROUND switch to 
  -     cause the Apache parent process to run in the foreground (similar to
  -     -DNO_DETACH except that it doesn't switch session ids).  
  -     [Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Reverted a minor optimization in mod_ssl.c that used the vhost ID
  +     as the session id context rather that a MD5 hash of that vhost ID,
  +     because it caused very long vhost id's to be unusable with mod_ssl.
  +     PR 8572.  [Cliff Woolley]
   
  -  *) Added support for Posix semaphore mutex locking (AcceptMutex posixsem)
  -     for those platforms that support it. If using the default
  -     implementation, this is between pthread and sysvsem in priority.
  -     This implies it's the new default for Darwin. [Jim Jagielski]
  +  *) Fix the link to the description of the CoredumpDirectory 
  +     directive in the server-wide document.  PR 8643.  [Jeff Trawick]
   
  -  *) AIX: Fix the syntax for setting the LDR_CNTRL and AIXTHREAD_SCOPE
  -     environment variables in the envvars file.  [Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Fixed SHMCB session caching.  [Aaron Bannert, Cliff Woolley]
   
  -  *) worker MPM: Don't create a listener thread until we have a worker
  -     thread.  Otherwise, in situations where we'll have to wait a while
  -     to take over scoreboard slots from a previous generation, we'll be
  -     accepting connections we can't process yet.  [Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Synced with remaining changes from mod_ssl 2.8.8-1.3.24:
  +     - Avoid SIGBUS on sparc machines with SHMCB session caches
  +     - Allow whitespace between the pipe and the name of the
  +     program in SSLLog "| /path/to/program".  [Cliff Woolley]
   
  -  *) Allow worker MPM to build on systems without pthread_kill().
  -     [Pier Fumagalli, Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Introduce mod_ext_filter and mod_deflate experimental modules
  +     to the Win32 build (zlib sources must be in srclib\zlib.)
  +     [William Rowe]
   
  -  *) Prevent ap_add_output_filters_by_type from being called in
  -     ap_set_content_type if the content-type hasn't changed.
  -     [Justin Erenkrantz]
  +  *) Changes to the worker MPM's queue management and thread
  +     synchronization code to reduce mutex contention  [Brian Pane]
   
  -  *) Performance: implemented the bucket allocator made possible by the
  -     API change in 2.0.34.  [Cliff Woolley]
  +  *) Don't install *.in configuration files since we already install
  +     *-std.conf files.  [Aaron Bannert]
   
  -  *) Don't allow initialization to succeed if we can't get a socket
  -     corresponding to one of the Listen statements.  [Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Many improvements to the threadpool MPM.  [Aaron Bannert]
   
  -  *) Allow all Perchild directives to accept either numerical UID/GID
  -     or logical user/group names.  [Scott Lamb <slamb@slamb.org>]
  +  *) Fix subreqs that are promoted via fast_redirect from having invalid
  +     frec->r structures.  This would cause subtle errors later on in
  +     request processing such as seen in PR 7966.  [Justin Erenkrantz]
   
  -  *) Make Perchild compile cleanly and serve pages again. [Ryan Bloom]
  +  *) More efficient pool recycling logic for the worker MPM [Brian Pane]
   
  -  *) implement ssl proxy to support ProxyPass / https:// and the
  -     SSLProxy* directives [Doug MacEachern]
  +  *) Modify the worker MPM to not accept() new connections until
  +     there is an available worker thread. This prevents queued
  +     connections from starving for processing time while long-running
  +     connections were hogging all the available threads.  [Aaron Bannert]
   
  -  *) Update mod_cgid to not do single-byte socket reads for CGI headers
  -     [Brian Pane]
  +  *) Convert the worker MPM's fdqueue from a LIFO back into a FIFO.
  +     [Aaron Bannert]
   
  -  *) Made AB's use of the Host: header rfc2616 compliant
  -     by Taisuke Yamada <tai@iij.ad.jp> [Dirk-Willem van Gulik].
  +  *) Get basic HTTP proxy working on EBCDIC machines.  [Jeff Trawick]
   
  -  *) The old, legacy (and unused) code in which the scoreboard was totally
  -     and completely contained in a file (SCOREBOARD_FILE) has been
  -     removed. This does not affect scoreboards which are *mapped* to
  -     files using named-shared-memory. [Jim Jagielski]
  +  *) Allow mod_unique_id to work on systems with no IPv4 address
  +     corresponding to their host name.  [Jeff Trawick]
   
  -  *) Change bucket brigades API to allow a "bucket allocator" to be
  -     passed in at certain points.  This allows us to implement freelists
  -     so that we can stop using malloc/free so frequently.
  -     [Cliff Woolley, Brian Pane]
  +  *) Fix suexec behavior with user directories.  PR 7810.
  +     [Colm <colmmacc@redbrick.dcu.ie>]
   
  -  *) Add support for macro expansion within the variable names in
  -     <!--#echo--> and <!--#set--> directives [Brian Pane]
  +  *) Reject a blank UserDir directive since it is ambiguous.  PR 8472.
  +     [Justin Erenkrantz]
   
  -  *) Fix some mod_include segfaults [Cliff Woolley, Brian Pane, Brad Nicholes]
  +  *) Make mod_mime use case-insensitive matching when examining
  +     extensions on all platforms.  PR 8223.  [Justin Erenkrantz]
   
  -  *) Update the Redhat Layout to match Redhat version 7. PR BZ-7422
  -     [Joe Orton] 
  +  *) Add an intelligent error message should no proxy submodules be
  +     valid to handle a request. PR 8407 [Graham Leggett]
   
  -  *) add compat layer to support RSA SSLC 1.x and 2.x in mod_ssl
  -     [Jon Travis, John Barbee, William Rowe, Ryan Bloom, Doug MacEachern]
  +  *) Major improvements in concurrent processing for AB by enabling
  +     non-blocking connect()s and preventing APR from doing blocking
  +     read()s. Also implement fatal error checking for apr_recv().
  +     [Aaron Bannert]
   
  -  *) Add a new parameter to the quick_handler hook to instruct
  -     quick handlers to optionally do a lookup rather than actually 
  -     serve content. This is the first of several changes required fix
  -     several problems with how quick handlers work with subrequests.
  -     [Bill Stoddard]
  +  *) Fix Win32 NTFS Junctions (symlinks).  PR 8014  [William Rowe]
   
  -  *) worker MPM: Get MaxRequestsPerChild to work again.  [Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Fix Win32 'short name' aliases in httpd.conf directives.
  +     PR 8009  [William Rowe]
   
  -  *) [APR-related] The ordering of the default accept mutex method has
  -     been changed to better match what's done in Apache 1.3. The ordering 
  -     is now (highest to lowest): pthread -> sysvsem -> fcntl -> flock.
  -     [Jim Jagielski]
  +  *) Fix generation of default httpd.conf when the layout paths are
  +     disjoint.  PR 7979, 8227.  [Justin Erenkrantz]
   
  -  *) Ensure that the build/ directory is created when using VPATH.
  +  *) Swap downgrade-1.0 and force-response-1.0 conditional checks so
  +     that downgraded responses can have force-response.  PR 8357.
        [Justin Erenkrantz]
   
  -  *) Add some popular types to the mime magic file.  PR 7730.
  -     [Linus Walleij <triad@df.lth.se>, Justin Erenkrantz]
  -
  -  *) Remove the single-byte socket reads for CGI headers [Brian Pane]
  -
  -  *) When a proxied site was being served, Apache was replacing
  -     the original site Server header with it's own, which is not
  -     allowed by RFC2616. Fixed. [Graham Leggett]
  -
  -  *) Fix a mod_cgid problem that left daemon processes stranded
  -     in some server restart scenarios.  [Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Fix perchild MPM so that it can be configured with the move to the
  +     experimental directory.  [Scott Lamb <slamb@slamb.org>]
   
  -  *) Added exp_foo and rel_foo variables to config_vars.mk for
  -     all Apache and Autoconf path variables (like --sysconfdir,
  -     --sbindir, etc). exp_foo is the "expanded" version, which means
  -     that all internal variable references have been interpolated.
  -     rel_foo is the same as $exp_foo, only relative to $prefix if they
  -     share a common path.  [Aaron Bannert]
  +  *) Fix perchild MPM so that it uses ap_gname2id for groups instead of
  +     ap_uname2id. [Scott Lamb <slamb@slamb.org>]
   
  -  *) Fix some restart/terminate problems in the worker MPM.  Don't
  -     drop connections during graceful restart.  [Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Fix AcceptPathInfo. PR 8234  [Cliff Woolley]
   
  -  *) Change the header merging behaviour in proxy, as some headers
  -     (like Set-Cookie) cannot be unmerged due to stray commas in
  -     dates. [Graham Leggett]
  +  *) [Security] Added the APLOG_TOCLIENT flag to ap_log_rerror() to
  +     explicitly tell the server that warning messages should be sent 
  +     to the client in addition to being recorded in the error log. 
  +     Prior to this change, ap_log_rerror() always sent warning 
  +     messages to the client. In one case, a faulty CGI script caused
  +     the server to send a warning message to the client that contained
  +     the full path to the CGI script. This could be considered a
  +     minor security exposure. [Bill Stoddard]
   
  -  *) Be more vocal about what AcceptMutex values we allow, to make
  -     us closer to how 1.3 does it. [Jim Jagielski]
  +  *) mod_autoindex output when SuppressRules was specified would
  +     omit the first carriage return so the first item in the list
  +     would appear to the right of the column headings instead of
  +     underneath them. PR 8016  [David Shane Holden <dpejesh@yahoo.com>]
   
  -  *) Get nph- CGI scripts working again.  PRs 8902, 8907, 9983
  -     [Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Moved the call to apr_mmap_dup outside the error branch so
  +     that it would actually get called. This fixes a core dump
  +     at init everytime you use the MMapFile directive. PR 8314
  +     [Paul J. Reder]
   
  -  *) Upgraded PCRE library to latest version 3.9 [Brian Pane]
  +  *) Trigger an error when a LoadModule directive attempts to
  +     load a module which is built-in.  This is a common error when
  +     switching from a DSO build to a static build.  [Jeff Trawick]
   
  -  *) Add accessor function to set r->content_type. From now on,
  -     ap_rset_content_type() should be used to set r->content_type.
  -     This change is required to properly implement the 
  -     AddOutputFilterByType configuration directive.
  -     [Bill Stoddard, Sander Striker, Ryan Bloom]
  +  *) Change instdso.sh to use libtool --install everywhere and then
  +     clean up some stray files and symlinks that libtool leaves around
  +     on some platforms.  This gets subversion building properly since
  +     it needed a re-link to be performed by libtool at install time,
  +     and the old instdso.sh logic to simply cp the DSO didn't handle
  +     that requirement.  [Sander Striker]
   
  -  *) Add new M_FOO symbols for the WebDAV/DeltaV methods specified by
  -     RFC 3253. Improved the method name/number mapping functions.
  -     [Greg Stein]
  +  *) Allow VPATH builds to succeed when configured from an empty
  +     directory.  [Thom May <thom@planetarytramp.net>]
   
  -  *) remove sock_enable_linger from connection.c [Ian Holsman]
  +  *) Fix 'control reaches end of non-void function' warning in
  +     server/log.c.  [Ben Collins-Sussman <sussman@collab.net>]
   
  -  *) Fix for virtual host processing where the requested hostname
  -     has a '.' at the end (PR 9187) [Ryan Cruse <ryan@estara.com>]
  +  *) Perchild MPM is now correctly deemed as experimental and is now
  +     located in server/mpm/experimental.  [Justin Erenkrantz]
   
  -  *) mod_dav's APIs for REPORT response handling was changed so that
  -     providers can generate the content directly into the output filter
  -     stack, rather than buffering the response into memory. [Greg Stein]
  +  *) Fix segfault in mod_mem_cache when garbage collecting an expired
  +     cache entry.  [Bill Stoddard]
   
  -  *) Fix a hang condition with graceful restart and prefork MPM
  -     in the situation where MaxClients is very high but
  -     much fewer servers are actually started at the time of the
  -     restart.  [Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Introduced -E startup_logfile_name option to httpd to allow admins
  +     to begin logging errors immediately.  This provides Win32 users 
  +     an alternative to sending startup errors to the event viewer, and
  +     allows other daemon tool authors an alternative to logging to stderr.
  +     [William Rowe] 
  +     
  +  *) Fix subreqs with non-defined Content-Types being served improperly.
  +     [Justin Erenkrantz]
   
  -  *) Small performance fixes for mod_include [Brian Pane]
  +  *) Merge in latest GNU config.guess and config.sub files.  PR 7818.
  +     [Justin Erenkrantz]
   
  -  *) Performance improvement for the error logger [Brian Pane]
  +  *) Move 100 - Continue support to the HTTP_IN filter so that filters
  +     are guaranteed to support 100 - Continue logic without any
  +     intervention.  [Justin Erenkrantz]
   
  -  *) Change configure so that Solaris 8 and above have 
  -     SINGLE_LISTEN_UNSERIALIZED_ACCEPT defined by default.
  -     according to sun people solaris 8+ doesn't have a thundering
  -     herd problem [Ian Holsman]
  +  *) Add HTTP chunked input trailer support.  [Justin Erenkrantz]
   
  -  *) Allow URIs specifying CGI scripts to include '/' at the end
  -     (e.g., /cgi-bin/printenv/) on AIX and Solaris (and other OSs
  -     which ignore '/' at the end of the names of non-directories).
  -     PR 10138  [Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Rename and export get_mime_headers as ap_get_mime_headers.
  +     [Justin Erenkrantz]
   
  -  *) implement SSLSessionCache shmht and shmcb based on apr_rmm and
  -     apr_shm.  [Madhusudan Mathihalli <madhusudan_mathihalli@hp.com>]
  +  *) Allow empty Host: header arguments.  PR 7441.  [Justin Erenkrantz]
   
  -  *) Fix apxs -g handling.  Move config_vars.mk from the top build
  -     directory to the build directory.  PR 10163  [Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Properly substitute sbindir as httpd's location in apachectl.  PR 7840.
  +     [Andreas Hasenack <andreas@netbank.com.br>]
   
  -  *) Fix some mod_include problems which broke evaluation of some
  -     expressions.  PR 10108  [Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Allow Win32 shebang scripts to follow the path (or omit the .exe
  +     suffix from the shebang command), and allow ScriptInterpreterSource
  +     Registry or RegistryStrict to override shebang lines, as 1.3 did.
  +     PR 8004  [William Rowe]
   
  -  *) Fix the calculation of request time in mod_status.  [Stas Bekman]
  +  *) worker MPM: Fix a situation where a child exited without releasing
  +     the accept mutex.  Depending on the OS and mutex mechanism this 
  +     could result in a hang.  [Jeff Trawick]
   
  -  *) Fix the calculation of thread_num in the worker score structure.
  +  *) Update the instructions for how to get started with mod_example.
        [Stas Bekman]
  +  
  +  *) Fix PidFile to default to rel_runtimedir instead of
  +     rel_logfiledir.  PR 7841.  [Andreas Hasenack <andreas@netbank.com.br>]
   
  -  *) Use apr_atomic operations in managing the mod_mem_cache
  -     cache_objects for SMP scalability. (see USE_ATOMICS
  -     preprocessor directive in mod_file_cache)
  -     [Bill Stoddard]
  -
  -  *) Add filehandle caching to mod_mem_cache. (see CACHE_FD
  -     preprocessor directive in mod_file_cache)
  -     [Bill Stoddard]
  -
  -  *) Implement prototype mod_disk_cache for use with mod_cache.
  +  *) Win32: Fix problem that caused rapid performance degradation
  +     when number of connecting clients exceeded ThreadsPerChild.
        [Bill Stoddard]
   
  -  *) Add a missing manualdir entry in the Debian config.layout.
  -     [Thom May <thom@planetarytramp.net>]
  -
  -  *) Stop installing libtool for APR and tell APR where it should place
  -     its copy of libtool (via our installbuildpath layout variable).
  -     [Justin Erenkrantz]
  -
  -  *) New directive ProxyIOBufferSize. Sets the size of the buffer used
  -     when reading from a remote HTTP server in proxy. [Graham Leggett]
  -
  -  *) Modify receive/send loop in proxy_http and proxy_ftp so that
  -     should it be necessary, the remote server socket is closed before
  -     transmitting the last buffer (set by ProxyIOBufferSize) to the
  -     client. This prevents the backend server from being forced to hang
  -     around while the last few bytes are transmitted to a slow client.
  -     Fix the case where no error checking was performed on the final
  -     brigade in the loop. [Graham Leggett]
  -
  -  *) Scrap CacheMaxExpireMin and CacheDefaultExpireMin. Change
  -     CacheMaxExpire and CacheDefaultExpire to use seconds rather than
  -     hours. [Graham Leggett, Bill Stoddard]
  -
  -  *) New Directive SSIUndefinedEcho. to change the '(none)' echoed
  -     for a undefined variable. [Ian Holsman]
  -
  -  *) Proxy HTTP and CONNECT: Keep trying other addresses from the DNS
  -     when we can't get a socket in the specified address family.  We may
  -     have gotten back an IPv6 address first and yet our system is not
  -     configured to allow IPv6 sockets.  [Jeff Trawick]
  -
  -  *) Be more careful about recursively removing CVS directories. Make
  -     sure that we aren't cd'ing to their home directory first. PR: 9993
  -     [Aaron Bannert, James LewisMoss <dres@lewismoss.net>]
  -
  -  *) Add a missing errordir entry in the Debian config.layout. PR: 10067
  -     [Dirk-Jan Faber <dirk-jan@selwerd.nl>, Aaron Bannert,
  -      Thom May <thom@planetarytramp.net>]
  -
  -  *) Rename the filter ordering priorities.  The recent filtering fixes
  -     have showcased problems with their usage.  Therefore, we need to
  -     rename them to increase the clarity.  (CONTENT->RESOURCE,
  -     HTTP_HEADER->CONTENT_SET/PROTOCOL)  [Justin Erenkrantz]
  -
  -  *) Fix a problem in the new --enable-layout functionality where
  -     it wouldn't allow overrides from variables like --prefix,
  -     --bindir, etc.  [Thom May <thom@planetarytramp.net>]
  -
  -  *) Fix a bug in the core input filter for AP_MODE_EXHAUSTIVE. It
  -     no longer hangs around waiting for the socket to close before
  -     returning exhaustive data.  [Aaron Bannert]
  -
  -  *) rename apr_exploded_time_t to apr_time_exp_t (as per renames pending)
  -     [Thom May <thom@planetarytramp.net>]
  -
  -  *) Change mod_ssl to always do a full startup/teardown on restarts.
  -     this allows mod_ssl to be added to a server that is already
  -     running and makes it possible to add/change certs/keys after the
  -     server has been started.  [Doug MacEachern]
  -
  -  *) Introduce PassPhraseDialog "|/path/to/pipe" mechanism to mod_ssl.
  -     This pipe must be a bidirectional 'console' style relay, which
  -     mod_ssl prints all prompts to the pipe's stdin, and reads the
  -     passphrases from the pipe's stdout.  [William Rowe]
  -
  -  *) Fix bug where --sysconfdir and --localstatedir were being
  -     ignored.  [Thom May <thom@planetarytramp.net>, Aaron Bannert]
  -     PR 9888
  -
  -  *) Fix --enable-layout to work again. Caution: When specifying
  -     --enable-layout, common arguments like --prefix, --exec-prefix,
  -     etc. will be ignored and the settings from the layout will be
  -     used instead.  [Thom May <thom@planetarytramp.net>, Aaron Bannert]
  -     PR 9124, 9873, 9885
  -
  -  *) New Directive for mod_proxy: ProxyRemoteMatch. This provides
  -     regex pattern matching for the determination of which requests
  -     to use the remote proxy for. [Jim Jagielski]
  -
  -  *) Fix CustomLog bytes-sent with HTTP 0.9.  [Justin Erenkrantz]
  -
  -  *) Prevent Apache from ignoring SIGHUP due to some lingering 1.3
  -     cruft in piped logs and rewritemap child processes.
  -     [William Rowe]
  -
  -  *) All instances of apr_lock_t have been removed and converted
  -     to one of the following new lock APIs: apr_thread_mutex.h,
  -     apr_proc_mutex.h, or apr_global_mutex.h. No new code should
  -     use the apr_lock.h API, as the old API will soon be deprecated.
  -     [Aaron Bannert]
  +  *) Fixed a segfault parsing large SSIs on non-mmap systems.
  +     [Brian Havard]
   
  -  *) Merged in changes to mod_ssl up through 2.8.7-1.3.23.
  -     [Ralf S. Engelschall, Cliff Woolley]
  +  *) Proxy was bombing out every second keepalive request, caused by a
  +     stray CRLF before the second response's status line. Proxy now
  +     tries to read one more line if it encounters a CRLF where it
  +     expected a status. PR 10010 [Graham Leggett]
   
  -  *) mod-include: make it handle flush'es and fix the 'false-alarm'
  -     [Justin Erenkrantz, Brian Pane, Ian Holsman]
  +  *) Deprecated the apr_lock.h API. Please see the following files
  +     for the improved thread and process locking and signaling: 
  +     apr_proc_mutex.h, apr_thread_mutex.h, apr_thread_rwlock.h,
  +     apr_thread_cond.h, and apr_global_mutex.h.  [Aaron Bannert]
   
  -  *) ap_get_*_filter_handle() functions to allow 3rd party modules
  -     to lookup filter handles so they can bypass the filter name
  -     lookup when adding filters to a request (via ap_add_*_filter_handle())
  +  *) Change mod_status to use scoreboard accessor functions so it can
  +     be used in any MPM without having to be recompiled.
        [Ryan Morgan <rmorgan@covalent.net>]
   
  -  *) Fix for multiple file buckets on Win32, where the first file
  -     bucket would cause the immediate closure of the socket on any
  -     non-keepalive requests.  [Ryan Morgan <rmorgan@covalent.net>]
  -
  -  *) Correct Win32 failure of mmap of a segment beyond start of the
  -     file; fixes large SSL and similar transfers.  [William Rowe]
  -     PR 9898
  -
  -  *) Implement apr_proc_detach changes and allow -DNO_DETACH in the
  -     multi-process mode to not "daemonize" while detaching from the
  -     controlling terminal. This is necessary for Apache to work with
  -     process-management tools like AIX's "System Resource Controller"
  -     as well as Dan Bernstein's "daemontools".
  -     [Jos Backus <josb@cncdsl.com>, Aaron Bannert]
  -
  -  *) Convert mod_auth_digest to use the new apr_global_mutex_t
  -     type.  [Aaron Bannert]
  -
  -  *) fix bug in mod-include where it wouldn't send a unmatched
  -     part if it was at the end of a bucket [Ian Holsman]
  -
  -  *) worker MPM: Improve logging of errors with the interface between
  -     the listener thread and worker threads.  [Jeff Trawick]
  -
  -  *) Some browsers ignore cookies that have been merged into a
  -     single Set-Cookie header. Set-Cookie and Set-Cookie2 headers
  -     are now unmerged in the http proxy before being sent to the
  -     client. [Graham Leggett]
  -
  -  *) Fix a problem with proxy where each entry of a duplicated
  -     header such as Set-Cookie would overwrite and obliterate the
  -     previous value of the header, resulting in multiple header
  -     values (like cookies) going missing.
  -     [Graham Leggett, Joshua Slive]
  -
  -  *) Add the server-limit and thread-limit values to the scoreboard
  -     for the sake of third-party applications.
  -     [Adam Sussman <myddryn@vishnu.vidya.com>]
  -
  -  *) Fix segfault when proxy recieves an invalid HTTP response [Ian Holsman]
  -
  -  *) OS/390: Get make install to properly copy DSO modules.
  -     [Jeff Trawick]
  -
  -  *) Win32: Fix bug in mod_status with displaying "Restart Time"
  -     and "Server uptime".
  -     [Bill Stoddard]
  -
  -  *) Fix IPv6 name-based virtual hosts.  [Jeff Trawick]
  -
  -  *) Introduce AddOutputFilterByType directive.  [Justin Erenkrantz]
  -
  -  *) Fix DEBUG_CGI support in mod_cgi.  PR 9670, 9671.
  -     [David MacKenzie <djm@pix.net>]
  -
  -  *) Fix incorrect check for script_in in mod_cgi.  PR 9669.
  -     [David MacKenzie <djm@pix.net>]
  -
  -  *) Fix segfault and display error when SSLMutex file can not be
  -     created.  [Adam Sussman <myddryn@vishnu.vidya.com>]
  -
  -  *) Add reference counting to mod_mem_cache cache objects to
  -     better manage removing objects from the cache.
  -     [Bill Stoddard]
  -
  -  *) Change the verbage on the ScoreBoardFile in our default configs.
  -     Also change the default to be commented out (unspecified) so we
  -     get anonymous shared memory by default.  [Aaron Bannert]
  -
  -  *) Implement new ScoreBoardFile directive logic. This affects how
  -     we create the scoreboard's shared memory segment. If the directive
  -     is present, a name-based segment is created. If the directive is
  -     not present, first an anonymous segment is created, and if that
  -     fails, a name-based segment is created from a file of the name
  -     DEFAULT_SCOREBOARD. This gives third-party applications the
  -     ability to access our scoreboard.  [Aaron Bannert]
  -
  -  *) Allow mod_deflate to work with non-GET requests and properly send
  -     Content-Lengths.  [Sander Striker <striker@apache.org>]
  -
  -  *) Fix ap_directory_merge() to correctly merge configs when there is
  -     no <Directory /> block.  [Justin Erenkrantz, William Rowe]
  +  *) Fix parsing of some AP_DECLARE_DATA declarations so that the filter
  +     handle declarations are recognized.  This fixes problems loading 
  +     mod_autoindex on some platforms.  [Brian Havard]
   
  -  *) Remove spurious debug messsages that are normal under HTTP
  -     keep-alive logic.  [Jeff Trawick, Justin Erenkrantz]
  +  *) add optional fixup hook to proxy [Daniel Lopez <daniel@covalent.net>]
   
  -  *) Fix a bug in mod_cgid that would prevent proper shutdown death
  -     of the cgid process.  [Aaron Bannert]
  +  *) Remind the admin about the User and Group directives when we are
  +     unable to set permissions on a semaphore.  PR 7812  [Jeff Trawick]
   
  -  *) Add signal handling back in to the worker MPM for the one_process
  -     (-X, -DDEBUG, -DONE_PROCESS) case.  [Aaron Bannert]
  +  *) fix possible compilation problem in ssl_engine_kernel.c. PR 7802
  +     [Doug MacEachern]
   
  -  *) Performance: Reuse per-connection transaction pools in the
  -     worker MPM, rather than destroying and recreating them.  [Brian Pane]
  +  *) fix possible infinite loop in mod_ssl triggered by certain
  +     netscape clients [Doug MacEachern]
   
  -  *) Remove all signals from the worker MPM's child process.  Instead,
  -     the parent uses the Pipe of Death for all communication with the
  -     child processes.  [Ryan Bloom]
  +  *) fix ProxyPass when frontend is https and backend is http
  +     [Doug MacEachern]
   
  - 
  +  *) Add DASL support to mod_dav
  +     [Sung Kim <hunkim@cse.ucsc.edu>]

  -Changes with Apache 2.0.35
  + 
  +Changes with Apache 2.0.36
   
  -  *) mod_rewrite: updated to use the new APR global mutex type.
  +  *) Close sockets on worker MPM when doing a graceless restart.
        [Aaron Bannert]
   
  -  *) Fixes for mod_include errors on boundary conditions in which
  -     "<!--#" occurs at the very end of a bucket
  -     [Paul Reder, Brian Pane]
  -
  -  *) worker, prefork, perchild, beos MPMs: Add -DFOREGROUND switch to 
  -     cause the Apache parent process to run in the foreground (similar to
  -     -DNO_DETACH except that it doesn't switch session ids).  
  -     [Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Reverted a minor optimization in mod_ssl.c that used the vhost ID
  +     as the session id context rather that a MD5 hash of that vhost ID,
  +     because it caused very long vhost id's to be unusable with mod_ssl.
  +     PR 8572.  [Cliff Woolley]
   
  -  *) Added support for Posix semaphore mutex locking (AcceptMutex posixsem)
  -     for those platforms that support it. If using the default
  -     implementation, this is between pthread and sysvsem in priority.
  -     This implies it's the new default for Darwin. [Jim Jagielski]
  +  *) Fix the link to the description of the CoredumpDirectory 
  +     directive in the server-wide document.  PR 8643.  [Jeff Trawick]
   
  -  *) AIX: Fix the syntax for setting the LDR_CNTRL and AIXTHREAD_SCOPE
  -     environment variables in the envvars file.  [Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Fixed SHMCB session caching.  [Aaron Bannert, Cliff Woolley]
   
  -  *) worker MPM: Don't create a listener thread until we have a worker
  -     thread.  Otherwise, in situations where we'll have to wait a while
  -     to take over scoreboard slots from a previous generation, we'll be
  -     accepting connections we can't process yet.  [Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Synced with remaining changes from mod_ssl 2.8.8-1.3.24:
  +     - Avoid SIGBUS on sparc machines with SHMCB session caches
  +     - Allow whitespace between the pipe and the name of the
  +     program in SSLLog "| /path/to/program".  [Cliff Woolley]
   
  -  *) Allow worker MPM to build on systems without pthread_kill().
  -     [Pier Fumagalli, Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Introduce mod_ext_filter and mod_deflate experimental modules
  +     to the Win32 build (zlib sources must be in srclib\zlib.)
  +     [William Rowe]
   
  -  *) Prevent ap_add_output_filters_by_type from being called in
  -     ap_set_content_type if the content-type hasn't changed.
  -     [Justin Erenkrantz]
  +  *) Changes to the worker MPM's queue management and thread
  +     synchronization code to reduce mutex contention  [Brian Pane]
   
  -  *) Performance: implemented the bucket allocator made possible by the
  -     API change in 2.0.34.  [Cliff Woolley]
  +  *) Don't install *.in configuration files since we already install
  +     *-std.conf files.  [Aaron Bannert]
   
  -  *) Don't allow initialization to succeed if we can't get a socket
  -     corresponding to one of the Listen statements.  [Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Many improvements to the threadpool MPM.  [Aaron Bannert]
   
  -  *) Allow all Perchild directives to accept either numerical UID/GID
  -     or logical user/group names.  [Scott Lamb <slamb@slamb.org>]
  +  *) Fix subreqs that are promoted via fast_redirect from having invalid
  +     frec->r structures.  This would cause subtle errors later on in
  +     request processing such as seen in PR 7966.  [Justin Erenkrantz]
   
  -  *) Make Perchild compile cleanly and serve pages again. [Ryan Bloom]
  +  *) More efficient pool recycling logic for the worker MPM [Brian Pane]
   
  -  *) implement ssl proxy to support ProxyPass / https:// and the
  -     SSLProxy* directives [Doug MacEachern]
  +  *) Modify the worker MPM to not accept() new connections until
  +     there is an available worker thread. This prevents queued
  +     connections from starving for processing time while long-running
  +     connections were hogging all the available threads.  [Aaron Bannert]
   
  -  *) Update mod_cgid to not do single-byte socket reads for CGI headers
  -     [Brian Pane]
  +  *) Convert the worker MPM's fdqueue from a LIFO back into a FIFO.
  +     [Aaron Bannert]
   
  -  *) Made AB's use of the Host: header rfc2616 compliant
  -     by Taisuke Yamada <tai@iij.ad.jp> [Dirk-Willem van Gulik].
  +  *) Get basic HTTP proxy working on EBCDIC machines.  [Jeff Trawick]
   
  -  *) The old, legacy (and unused) code in which the scoreboard was totally
  -     and completely contained in a file (SCOREBOARD_FILE) has been
  -     removed. This does not affect scoreboards which are *mapped* to
  -     files using named-shared-memory. [Jim Jagielski]
  +  *) Allow mod_unique_id to work on systems with no IPv4 address
  +     corresponding to their host name.  [Jeff Trawick]
   
  -  *) Change bucket brigades API to allow a "bucket allocator" to be
  -     passed in at certain points.  This allows us to implement freelists
  -     so that we can stop using malloc/free so frequently.
  -     [Cliff Woolley, Brian Pane]
  +  *) Fix suexec behavior with user directories.  PR 7810.
  +     [Colm <colmmacc@redbrick.dcu.ie>]
   
  -  *) Add support for macro expansion within the variable names in
  -     <!--#echo--> and <!--#set--> directives [Brian Pane]
  +  *) Reject a blank UserDir directive since it is ambiguous.  PR 8472.
  +     [Justin Erenkrantz]
   
  -  *) Fix some mod_include segfaults [Cliff Woolley, Brian Pane, Brad Nicholes]
  +  *) Make mod_mime use case-insensitive matching when examining
  +     extensions on all platforms.  PR 8223.  [Justin Erenkrantz]
   
  -  *) Update the Redhat Layout to match Redhat version 7. PR BZ-7422
  -     [Joe Orton] 
  +  *) Add an intelligent error message should no proxy submodules be
  +     valid to handle a request. PR 8407 [Graham Leggett]
   
  -  *) add compat layer to support RSA SSLC 1.x and 2.x in mod_ssl
  -     [Jon Travis, John Barbee, William Rowe, Ryan Bloom, Doug MacEachern]
  +  *) Major improvements in concurrent processing for AB by enabling
  +     non-blocking connect()s and preventing APR from doing blocking
  +     read()s. Also implement fatal error checking for apr_recv().
  +     [Aaron Bannert]
   
  -  *) Add a new parameter to the quick_handler hook to instruct
  -     quick handlers to optionally do a lookup rather than actually 
  -     serve content. This is the first of several changes required fix
  -     several problems with how quick handlers work with subrequests.
  -     [Bill Stoddard]
  +  *) Fix Win32 NTFS Junctions (symlinks).  PR 8014  [William Rowe]
   
  -  *) worker MPM: Get MaxRequestsPerChild to work again.  [Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Fix Win32 'short name' aliases in httpd.conf directives.
  +     PR 8009  [William Rowe]
   
  -  *) [APR-related] The ordering of the default accept mutex method has
  -     been changed to better match what's done in Apache 1.3. The ordering 
  -     is now (highest to lowest): pthread -> sysvsem -> fcntl -> flock.
  -     [Jim Jagielski]
  +  *) Fix generation of default httpd.conf when the layout paths are
  +     disjoint.  PR 7979, 8227.  [Justin Erenkrantz]
   
  -  *) Ensure that the build/ directory is created when using VPATH.
  +  *) Swap downgrade-1.0 and force-response-1.0 conditional checks so
  +     that downgraded responses can have force-response.  PR 8357.
        [Justin Erenkrantz]
   
  -  *) Add some popular types to the mime magic file.  PR 7730.
  -     [Linus Walleij <triad@df.lth.se>, Justin Erenkrantz]
  -
  -  *) Remove the single-byte socket reads for CGI headers [Brian Pane]
  -
  -  *) When a proxied site was being served, Apache was replacing
  -     the original site Server header with it's own, which is not
  -     allowed by RFC2616. Fixed. [Graham Leggett]
  -
  -  *) Fix a mod_cgid problem that left daemon processes stranded
  -     in some server restart scenarios.  [Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Fix perchild MPM so that it can be configured with the move to the
  +     experimental directory.  [Scott Lamb <slamb@slamb.org>]
   
  -  *) Added exp_foo and rel_foo variables to config_vars.mk for
  -     all Apache and Autoconf path variables (like --sysconfdir,
  -     --sbindir, etc). exp_foo is the "expanded" version, which means
  -     that all internal variable references have been interpolated.
  -     rel_foo is the same as $exp_foo, only relative to $prefix if they
  -     share a common path.  [Aaron Bannert]
  +  *) Fix perchild MPM so that it uses ap_gname2id for groups instead of
  +     ap_uname2id. [Scott Lamb <slamb@slamb.org>]
   
  -  *) Fix some restart/terminate problems in the worker MPM.  Don't
  -     drop connections during graceful restart.  [Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Fix AcceptPathInfo. PR 8234  [Cliff Woolley]
   
  -  *) Change the header merging behaviour in proxy, as some headers
  -     (like Set-Cookie) cannot be unmerged due to stray commas in
  -     dates. [Graham Leggett]
  +  *) [Security] Added the APLOG_TOCLIENT flag to ap_log_rerror() to
  +     explicitly tell the server that warning messages should be sent 
  +     to the client in addition to being recorded in the error log. 
  +     Prior to this change, ap_log_rerror() always sent warning 
  +     messages to the client. In one case, a faulty CGI script caused
  +     the server to send a warning message to the client that contained
  +     the full path to the CGI script. This could be considered a
  +     minor security exposure. [Bill Stoddard]
   
  -  *) Be more vocal about what AcceptMutex values we allow, to make
  -     us closer to how 1.3 does it. [Jim Jagielski]
  +  *) mod_autoindex output when SuppressRules was specified would
  +     omit the first carriage return so the first item in the list
  +     would appear to the right of the column headings instead of
  +     underneath them. PR 8016  [David Shane Holden <dpejesh@yahoo.com>]
   
  -  *) Get nph- CGI scripts working again.  PRs 8902, 8907, 9983
  -     [Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Moved the call to apr_mmap_dup outside the error branch so
  +     that it would actually get called. This fixes a core dump
  +     at init everytime you use the MMapFile directive. PR 8314
  +     [Paul J. Reder]
   
  -  *) Upgraded PCRE library to latest version 3.9 [Brian Pane]
  +  *) Trigger an error when a LoadModule directive attempts to
  +     load a module which is built-in.  This is a common error when
  +     switching from a DSO build to a static build.  [Jeff Trawick]
   
  -  *) Add accessor function to set r->content_type. From now on,
  -     ap_rset_content_type() should be used to set r->content_type.
  -     This change is required to properly implement the 
  -     AddOutputFilterByType configuration directive.
  -     [Bill Stoddard, Sander Striker, Ryan Bloom]
  +  *) Change instdso.sh to use libtool --install everywhere and then
  +     clean up some stray files and symlinks that libtool leaves around
  +     on some platforms.  This gets subversion building properly since
  +     it needed a re-link to be performed by libtool at install time,
  +     and the old instdso.sh logic to simply cp the DSO didn't handle
  +     that requirement.  [Sander Striker]
   
  -  *) Add new M_FOO symbols for the WebDAV/DeltaV methods specified by
  -     RFC 3253. Improved the method name/number mapping functions.
  -     [Greg Stein]
  +  *) Allow VPATH builds to succeed when configured from an empty
  +     directory.  [Thom May <thom@planetarytramp.net>]
   
  -  *) remove sock_enable_linger from connection.c [Ian Holsman]
  +  *) Fix 'control reaches end of non-void function' warning in
  +     server/log.c.  [Ben Collins-Sussman <sussman@collab.net>]
   
  -  *) Fix for virtual host processing where the requested hostname
  -     has a '.' at the end (PR 9187) [Ryan Cruse <ryan@estara.com>]
  +  *) Perchild MPM is now correctly deemed as experimental and is now
  +     located in server/mpm/experimental.  [Justin Erenkrantz]
   
  -  *) mod_dav's APIs for REPORT response handling was changed so that
  -     providers can generate the content directly into the output filter
  -     stack, rather than buffering the response into memory. [Greg Stein]
  +  *) Fix segfault in mod_mem_cache when garbage collecting an expired
  +     cache entry.  [Bill Stoddard]
   
  -  *) Fix a hang condition with graceful restart and prefork MPM
  -     in the situation where MaxClients is very high but
  -     much fewer servers are actually started at the time of the
  -     restart.  [Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Introduced -E startup_logfile_name option to httpd to allow admins
  +     to begin logging errors immediately.  This provides Win32 users 
  +     an alternative to sending startup errors to the event viewer, and
  +     allows other daemon tool authors an alternative to logging to stderr.
  +     [William Rowe] 
  +     
  +  *) Fix subreqs with non-defined Content-Types being served improperly.
  +     [Justin Erenkrantz]
   
  -  *) Small performance fixes for mod_include [Brian Pane]
  +  *) Merge in latest GNU config.guess and config.sub files.  PR 7818.
  +     [Justin Erenkrantz]
   
  -  *) Performance improvement for the error logger [Brian Pane]
  +  *) Move 100 - Continue support to the HTTP_IN filter so that filters
  +     are guaranteed to support 100 - Continue logic without any
  +     intervention.  [Justin Erenkrantz]
   
  -  *) Change configure so that Solaris 8 and above have 
  -     SINGLE_LISTEN_UNSERIALIZED_ACCEPT defined by default.
  -     according to sun people solaris 8+ doesn't have a thundering
  -     herd problem [Ian Holsman]
  +  *) Add HTTP chunked input trailer support.  [Justin Erenkrantz]
   
  -  *) Allow URIs specifying CGI scripts to include '/' at the end
  -     (e.g., /cgi-bin/printenv/) on AIX and Solaris (and other OSs
  -     which ignore '/' at the end of the names of non-directories).
  -     PR 10138  [Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Rename and export get_mime_headers as ap_get_mime_headers.
  +     [Justin Erenkrantz]
   
  -  *) implement SSLSessionCache shmht and shmcb based on apr_rmm and
  -     apr_shm.  [Madhusudan Mathihalli <madhusudan_mathihalli@hp.com>]
  +  *) Allow empty Host: header arguments.  PR 7441.  [Justin Erenkrantz]
   
  -  *) Fix apxs -g handling.  Move config_vars.mk from the top build
  -     directory to the build directory.  PR 10163  [Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Properly substitute sbindir as httpd's location in apachectl.  PR 7840.
  +     [Andreas Hasenack <andreas@netbank.com.br>]
   
  -  *) Fix some mod_include problems which broke evaluation of some
  -     expressions.  PR 10108  [Jeff Trawick]
  +  *) Allow Win32 shebang scripts to follow the path (or omit the .exe
  +     suffix from the shebang command), and allow ScriptInterpreterSource
  +     Registry or RegistryStrict to override shebang lines, as 1.3 did.
  +     PR 8004  [William Rowe]
   
  -  *) Fix the calculation of request time in mod_status.  [Stas Bekman]
  +  *) worker MPM: Fix a situation where a child exited without releasing
  +     the accept mutex.  Depending on the OS and mutex mechanism this 
  +     could result in a hang.  [Jeff Trawick]
   
  -  *) Fix the calculation of thread_num in the worker score structure.
  +  *) Update the instructions for how to get started with mod_example.
        [Stas Bekman]
  +  
  +  *) Fix PidFile to default to rel_runtimedir instead of
  +     rel_logfiledir.  PR 7841.  [Andreas Hasenack <andreas@netbank.com.br>]
   
  -  *) Use apr_atomic operations in managing the mod_mem_cache
  -     cache_objects for SMP scalability. (see USE_ATOMICS
  -     preprocessor directive in mod_file_cache)
  -     [Bill Stoddard]
  -
  -  *) Add filehandle caching to mod_mem_cache. (see CACHE_FD
  -     preprocessor directive in mod_file_cache)
  -     [Bill Stoddard]
  -
  -  *) Implement prototype mod_disk_cache for use with mod_cache.
  +  *) Win32: Fix problem that caused rapid performance degradation
  +     when number of connecting clients exceeded ThreadsPerChild.
        [Bill Stoddard]
   
  -  *) Add a missing manualdir entry in the Debian config.layout.
  -     [Thom May <thom@planetarytramp.net>]
  -
  -  *) Stop installing libtool for APR and tell APR where it should place
  -     its copy of libtool (via our installbuildpath layout variable).
  -     [Justin Erenkrantz]
  -
  -  *) New directive ProxyIOBufferSize. Sets the size of the buffer used
  -     when reading from a remote HTTP server in proxy. [Graham Leggett]
  -
  -  *) Modify receive/send loop in proxy_http and proxy_ftp so that
  -     should it be necessary, the remote server socket is closed before
  -     transmitting the last buffer (set by ProxyIOBufferSize) to the
  -     client. This prevents the backend server from being forced to hang
  -     around while the last few bytes are transmitted to a slow client.
  -     Fix the case where no error checking was performed on the final
  -     brigade in the loop. [Graham Leggett]
  -
  -  *) Scrap CacheMaxExpireMin and CacheDefaultExpireMin. Change
  -     CacheMaxExpire and CacheDefaultExpire to use seconds rather than
  -     hours. [Graham Leggett, Bill Stoddard]
  -
  -  *) New Directive SSIUndefinedEcho. to change the '(none)' echoed
  -     for a undefined variable. [Ian Holsman]
  -
  -  *) Proxy HTTP and CONNECT: Keep trying other addresses from the DNS
  -     when we can't get a socket in the specified address family.  We may
  -     have gotten back an IPv6 address first and yet our system is not
  -     configured to allow IPv6 sockets.  [Jeff Trawick]
  -
  -  *) Be more careful about recursively removing CVS directories. Make
  -     sure that we aren't cd'ing to their home directory first. PR: 9993
  -     [Aaron Bannert, James LewisMoss <dres@lewismoss.net>]
  -
  -  *) Add a missing errordir entry in the Debian config.layout. PR: 10067
  -     [Dirk-Jan Faber <dirk-jan@selwerd.nl>, Aaron Bannert,
  -      Thom May <thom@planetarytramp.net>]
  -
  -  *) Rename the filter ordering priorities.  The recent filtering fixes
  -     have showcased problems with their usage.  Therefore, we need to
  -     rename them to increase the clarity.  (CONTENT->RESOURCE,
  -     HTTP_HEADER->CONTENT_SET/PROTOCOL)  [Justin Erenkrantz]
  -
  -  *) Fix a problem in the new --enable-layout functionality where
  -     it wouldn't allow overrides from variables like --prefix,
  -     --bindir, etc.  [Thom May <thom@planetarytramp.net>]
  -
  -  *) Fix a bug in the core input filter for AP_MODE_EXHAUSTIVE. It
  -     no longer hangs around waiting for the socket to close before
  -     returning exhaustive data.  [Aaron Bannert]
  -
  -  *) rename apr_exploded_time_t to apr_time_exp_t (as per renames pending)
  -     [Thom May <thom@planetarytramp.net>]
  -
  -  *) Change mod_ssl to always do a full startup/teardown on restarts.
  -     this allows mod_ssl to be added to a server that is already
  -     running and makes it possible to add/change certs/keys after the
  -     server has been started.  [Doug MacEachern]
  -
  -  *) Introduce PassPhraseDialog "|/path/to/pipe" mechanism to mod_ssl.
  -     This pipe must be a bidirectional 'console' style relay, which
  -     mod_ssl prints all prompts to the pipe's stdin, and reads the
  -     passphrases from the pipe's stdout.  [William Rowe]
  -
  -  *) Fix bug where --sysconfdir and --localstatedir were being
  -     ignored.  [Thom May <thom@planetarytramp.net>, Aaron Bannert]
  -     PR 9888
  -
  -  *) Fix --enable-layout to work again. Caution: When specifying
  -     --enable-layout, common arguments like --prefix, --exec-prefix,
  -     etc. will be ignored and the settings from the layout will be
  -     used instead.  [Thom May <thom@planetarytramp.net>, Aaron Bannert]
  -     PR 9124, 9873, 9885
  -
  -  *) New Directive for mod_proxy: ProxyRemoteMatch. This provides
  -     regex pattern matching for the determination of which requests
  -     to use the remote proxy for. [Jim Jagielski]
  -
  -  *) Fix CustomLog bytes-sent with HTTP 0.9.  [Justin Erenkrantz]
  -
  -  *) Prevent Apache from ignoring SIGHUP due to some lingering 1.3
  -     cruft in piped logs and rewritemap child processes.
  -     [William Rowe]
  -
  -  *) All instances of apr_lock_t have been removed and converted
  -     to one of the following new lock APIs: apr_thread_mutex.h,
  -     apr_proc_mutex.h, or apr_global_mutex.h. No new code should
  -     use the apr_lock.h API, as the old API will soon be deprecated.
  -     [Aaron Bannert]
  +  *) Fixed a segfault parsing large SSIs on non-mmap systems.
  +     [Brian Havard]
   
  -  *) Merged in changes to mod_ssl up through 2.8.7-1.3.23.
  -     [Ralf S. Engelschall, Cliff Woolley]
  +  *) Proxy was bombing out every second keepalive request, caused by a
  +     stray CRLF before the second response's status line. Proxy now
  +     tries to read one more line if it encounters a CRLF where it
  +     expected a status. PR 10010 [Graham Leggett]
   
  -  *) mod-include: make it handle flush'es and fix the 'false-alarm'
  -     [Justin Erenkrantz, Brian Pane, Ian Holsman]
  +  *) Deprecated the apr_lock.h API. Please see the following files
  +     for the improved thread and process locking and signaling: 
  +     apr_proc_mutex.h, apr_thread_mutex.h, apr_thread_rwlock.h,
  +     apr_thread_cond.h, and apr_global_mutex.h.  [Aaron Bannert]
   
  -  *) ap_get_*_filter_handle() functions to allow 3rd party modules
  -     to lookup filter handles so they can bypass the filter name
  -     lookup when adding filters to a request (via ap_add_*_filter_handle())
  +  *) Change mod_status to use scoreboard accessor functions so it can
  +     be used in any MPM without having to be recompiled.
        [Ryan Morgan <rmorgan@covalent.net>]
   
  -  *) Fix for multiple file buckets on Win32, where the first file
  -     bucket would cause the immediate closure of the socket on any
  -     non-keepalive requests.  [Ryan Morgan <rmorgan@covalent.net>]
  -
  -  *) Correct Win32 failure of mmap of a segment beyond start of the
  -     file; fixes large SSL and similar transfers.  [William Rowe]
  -     PR 9898
  -
  -  *) Implement apr_proc_detach changes and allow -DNO_DETACH in the
  -     multi-process mode to not "daemonize" while detaching from the
  -     controlling terminal. This is necessary for Apache to work with
  -     process-management tools like AIX's "System Resource Controller"
  -     as well as Dan Bernstein's "daemontools".
  -     [Jos Backus <josb@cncdsl.com>, Aaron Bannert]
  -
  -  *) Convert mod_auth_digest to use the new apr_global_mutex_t
  -     type.  [Aaron Bannert]
  -
  -  *) fix bug in mod-include where it wouldn't send a unmatched
  -     part if it was at the end of a bucket [Ian Holsman]
  -
  -  *) worker MPM: Improve logging of errors with the interface between
  -     the listener thread and worker threads.  [Jeff Trawick]
  -
  -  *) Some browsers ignore cookies that have been merged into a
  -     single Set-Cookie header. Set-Cookie and Set-Cookie2 headers
  -     are now unmerged in the http proxy before being sent to the
  -     client. [Graham Leggett]
  -
  -  *) Fix a problem with proxy where each entry of a duplicated
  -     header such as Set-Cookie would overwrite and obliterate the
  -     previous value of the header, resulting in multiple header
  -     values (like cookies) going missing.
  -     [Graham Leggett, Joshua Slive]
  -
  -  *) Add the server-limit and thread-limit values to the scoreboard
  -     for the sake of third-party applications.
  -     [Adam Sussman <myddryn@vishnu.vidya.com>]
  -
  -  *) Fix segfault when proxy recieves an invalid HTTP response [Ian Holsman]
  -
  -  *) OS/390: Get make install to properly copy DSO modules.
  -     [Jeff Trawick]
  -
  -  *) Win32: Fix bug in mod_status with displaying "Restart Time"
  -     and "Server uptime".
  -     [Bill Stoddard]
  -
  -  *) Fix IPv6 name-based virtual hosts.  [Jeff Trawick]
  -
  -  *) Introduce AddOutputFilterByType directive.  [Justin Erenkrantz]
  -
  -  *) Fix DEBUG_CGI support in mod_cgi.  PR 9670, 9671.
  -     [David MacKenzie <djm@pix.net>]
  -
  -  *) Fix incorrect check for script_in in mod_cgi.  PR 9669.
  -     [David MacKenzie <djm@pix.net>]
  -
  -  *) Fix segfault and display error when SSLMutex file can not be
  -     created.  [Adam Sussman <myddryn@vishnu.vidya.com>]
  -
  -  *) Add reference counting to mod_mem_cache cache objects to
  -     better manage removing objects from the cache.
  -     [Bill Stoddard]
  -
  -  *) Change the verbage on the ScoreBoardFile in our default configs.
  -     Also change the default to be commented out (unspecified) so we
  -     get anonymous shared memory by default.  [Aaron Bannert]
  -
  -  *) Implement new ScoreBoardFile directive logic. This affects how
  -     we create the scoreboard's shared memory segment. If the directive
  -     is present, a name-based segment is created. If the directive is
  -     not present, first an anonymous segment is created, and if that
  -     fails, a name-based segment is created from a file of the name
  -     DEFAULT_SCOREBOARD. This gives third-party applications the
  -     ability to access our scoreboard.  [Aaron Bannert]
  -
  -  *) Allow mod_deflate to work with non-GET requests and properly send
  -     Content-Lengths.  [Sander Striker <striker@apache.org>]
  -
  -  *) Fix ap_directory_merge() to correctly merge configs when there is
  -     no <Directory /> block.  [Justin Erenkrantz, William Rowe]
  +  *) Fix parsing of some AP_DECLARE_DATA declarations so that the filter
  +     handle declarations are recognized.  This fixes problems loading 
  +     mod_autoindex on some platforms.  [Brian Havard]
   
  -  *) Remove spurious debug messsages that are normal under HTTP
  -     keep-alive logic.  [Jeff Trawick, Justin Erenkrantz]
  +  *) add optional fixup hook to proxy [Daniel Lopez <daniel@covalent.net>]
   
  -  *) Fix a bug in mod_cgid that would prevent proper shutdown death
  -     of the cgid process.  [Aaron Bannert]
  +  *) Remind the admin about the User and Group directives when we are
  +     unable to set permissions on a semaphore.  PR 7812  [Jeff Trawick]
   
  -  *) Add signal handling back in to the worker MPM for the one_process
  -     (-X, -DDEBUG, -DONE_PROCESS) case.  [Aaron Bannert]
  +  *) fix possible compilation problem in ssl_engine_kernel.c. PR 7802
  +     [Doug MacEachern]
   
  -  *) Performance: Reuse per-connection transaction pools in the
  -     worker MPM, rather than destroying and recreating them.  [Brian Pane]
  +  *) fix possible infinite loop in mod_ssl triggered by certain
  +     netscape clients [Doug MacEachern]
   
  -  *) Remove all signals from the worker MPM's child process.  Instead,
  -     the parent uses the Pipe of Death for all communication with the
  -     child processes.  [Ryan Bloom]
  +  *) fix ProxyPass when frontend is https and backend is http
  +     [Doug MacEachern]
   
  - 
  +  *) Add DASL support to mod_dav
  +     [Sung Kim <hunkim@cse.ucsc.edu>]
