     Security vulnerabilities
   
  -     * Fix the security vulnerability noted in CAN-2002-0061 (mitre.org)

  -     * Prevent invalid client hostnames from appearing in the log file.

  +   The main new features in 1.3.25 (compared to 1.3.24) are:
   
  -     * Various mod_proxy improvements, such as the new ProxyIOBufferSize
  -       directive.
  -     * The new ''IgnoreCase' keyword to the IndexOptions directive.
  +     * Add some popular types to the mime types magic file.
   
      New features that relate to specific platforms:
   
  -     * Added the module mod_log_nw to handle log rotation under NetWare.
  +     * Unix: Added a '-F' flag which causes the supervisor process to
  +       no longer fork down and detach and instead stay attached to
  +       the tty - thus making live for automatic restart and exit checking
  +       code easier.
   
     Bugs fixed

  +   The following bugs were found in Apache 1.3.24 (or earlier) and have
  +   been fixed in Apache 1.3.25:
   
  -     * mod_rewrite's 'rnd' was broken and has been fixed.
  -     * The '-S' option of 'apxs' was not able to handle quotes; also 'apxs'
  -       is now rebuilt when options are changed.
  -     * proxy now correctly handles Cookies and X-Cache headers.
  -
  -   The following bugs relate to specific platforms:
  -
  -     * Fixed a problem in TPF when we were using the wrong subpool when
  -       opening the error log.
  -     * pthread accept() mutexes on Solaris were broken (since we were
  -       not linking against pthread)
  +     * Allow child processes sufficient time for cleanups but making
  +       ap_select in reclaim_child_processes more "resistant" to
  +       signal interupts.
  +
  +     * Fix for a problem in mod_rewrite which would lead to 400 Bad Request
  +       responses for rewriting rules which resulted in a local path.
  +       Note: This will also reject invalid requests as issued by
  +       Netscape-4.x Roaming Profiles (on a DAV-enabled server)
  +
  +     * Recognize platform-specific root directories (other than
  +       leading slash) in mod_rewrite for filename rewrite rules.
  +
  +     * Disallow anything but whitespace on the request line after the
  +       HTTP/x.y protocol string to prevent arbitrary user input from
  +       ending up in the access_log and error_log.  Also control characters
  +       are now escaped.
  +
  +     * A large number of fixes in mod_proxy including: adding support
  +       for dechunking chunked responses, correcting a timeout problem
  +       which would force long or slow POST requests to close after 300
  +       seconds, adding "X-Forwarded" headers, dealing correctly with the
  +       multiple-cookie header bug, ability to handle unexpected
  +       100-continue responses sent during PUT or POST commands, and a
  +       change to tighten up the Server header overwrite bugfix.
