+  *) Added TraceEnable [on|off|extended] per-server directive to alter
+     the behavior of the TRACE method.  This addresses a flaw in proxy
+     conformance to RFC 2616 - previously the proxy server would accept
+     a TRACE request body although the RFC prohibited it.  The default
+     remains 'TraceEnable on'.

   *) Add additional SSLSessionCache option, 'nonenotnull', which is
      similar to 'none' (disabling any external shared cache) but forces
      OpenSSL to provide a non-null session ID.  [Jim Jagielski]
