     Security vulnerabilities
   
  -     * CAN-2003-0542 (cve.mitre.org)
  -       Fix buffer overflows in mod_alias and mod_rewrite which occurred if
  -       one configured a regular expression with more than 9 captures.

     New features
   
      New features that relate to specific platforms:
   
  -     * Enabled RFC1413 ident functionality for both Win32 and
  -       NetWare platforms.  This also included an alternate thread safe
  -       implementation of the socket timout functionality when querying
  -       the identd daemon.
  +     * Linux 2.4+: If Apache is started as root and you code
  +       CoreDumpDirectory, coredumps are enabled via the prctl() syscall.
  +
  +   New features that relate to all platforms:
  +
  +     * Add mod_whatkilledus and mod_backtrace (experimental) for
  +       reporting diagnostic information after a child process crash.
  +
  +     * Add fatal exception hook for running diagnostic code after a
  +       crash.  
  +
  +     * Forensic logging module added (mod_log_forensic)
  +     
  +     * '%X' is now accepted as an alias for '%c' in the
  +       LogFormat directive. This allows you to configure logging
  +       to still log the connection status even with mod_ssl

  +   The following noteworthy bugs were found in Apache 1.3.29 (or earlier)
  +   and have been fixed in Apache 1.3.30:
  +
  +     * Fix memory corruption problem with ap_custom_response() function.
  +       The core per-dir config would later point to request pool data
  +       that would be reused for different purposes on different requests.
   
  -     * Within ap_bclose(), ap_pclosesocket() is now called consistently
  -       for sockets and ap_pclosef() for files.  Also, closesocket()
  -       is used consistenly to close socket fd's.  The previous
  -       confusion between socket and file fd's would cause problems
  -       with some applications now that we proactively close fd's to
  -       prevent leakage.  PR 22805.
  - 
  -     * Fixed mod_usertrack to not get false positive matches on the
  -       user-tracking cookie's name.  PR 16661.
  +     * mod_usertrack no longer inspects the Cookie2 header for
  +       the cookie name. It also no longer overwrites other cookies.
   
  -     * Prevent creation of subprocess Zombies when using CGI wrappers
  -       such as suEXEC and cgiwrap.  PR 21737. 
  +     * Fix bug causing core dump when using CookieTracking without
  +       specifying a CookieName directly.
   
  +     * UseCanonicalName off was ignoring the client provided
  +       port information.
