     New features
   
      New features that relate to specific platforms:
   
  -     * Linux 2.4+: If Apache is started as root and you code
  -       CoreDumpDirectory, core dumps are enabled via the prctl() syscall.
  +     * Win32: Improve error reporting after a failed attempt to spawn a 
  +       piped log process or rewrite map process.
   
      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
  +     * Added new compile-time flag: UCN_OFF_HONOR_PHYSICAL_PORT.
  +       It controls how UseCanonicalName Off determines the port value if
  +       the client doesn't provide one in the Host header. If defined during
  +       compilation, UseCanonicalName Off will use the physical port number
  +       to generate the canonical name. If not defined, it tries the current
  +       Port value followed by the default port for the current scheme.
   
     Bugs fixed
   
  -   The following noteworthy bugs were found in Apache 1.3.29 (or earlier)
  -   and have been fixed in Apache 1.3.31:
  -
  -     * 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.
  -
  -     * mod_usertrack no longer inspects the Cookie2 header for
  -       the cookie name. It also no longer overwrites other cookies.
  -
  -     * Fix bug causing core dump when using CookieTracking without
  -       specifying a CookieName directly.
  -
  -     * UseCanonicalName off was ignoring the client provided
  -       port information.
  +   The following noteworthy bugs were found in Apache 1.3.31 (or earlier)
  +   and have been fixed in Apache 1.3.32:
   
  +     * mod_rewrite: Fix query string handling for proxied URLs. PR 14518.
  +                                                                                
  +     * mod_rewrite: Fix 0 bytes write into random memory position.
  +       PR 31036.
  +
  +     * mod_digest: Fix nonce string calculation since 1.3.31 which
  +       would force re-authentication for every connection if
  +       AuthDigestRealmSeed was not configured.  PR 30920.
  +
  +     * Fix trivial bug in mod_log_forensic that caused the child
  +       to seg fault when certain invalid requests were fired at it with
  +       forensic logging is enabled.  PR 29313.
  +
  +     * No longer breaks mod_dav, frontpage and others.  Repair a patch
  +       in 1.3.31 which prevented discarding the request body for requests
  +       that will be keptalive but are not currently keptalive. PR 29237.
