Subject [STATUS] Apache 1.2.3 (Fri 15-Aug-1997 13:47 MET DST)
Date Fri, 15 Aug 1997 11:47:36 GMT

STATUS for Apache 1.2.3
=======================

Release Status:

    o IMPORTANT:
      Apache 1.2.2 was canceled because the pre-release tarballs were already
      rolled with a server version named 1.2.2 instead of 1.2.2-dev and a few
      of us (at least Marc, Ken, Ben, Lars and Paul) really want to avoid any
      confusion, especially related to occuring bugreports, etc. Because at
      least some people have grabbed the pre-release tarballs, even when they
      were only put on ftp://dev.apache.org/httpd/dist/apache_1.2.2/.  This
      directoy was removed now.

      So now we treat 1.2.2 as a never released version which existed only for
      internal tests and bumped up the version number to 1.2.3-dev.  A new
      pre-release was rolled again. Now correctly tagged 1.2.3-dev!! We now
      start a real test cycle with 1.2.3-dev for the various platform (see
      table below).

    o The current pre-release tarball for testing can be found here:
      ftp://dev.apache.org/httpd/dist/apache_1.2.3-dev.tar.gz

    => ** PLEASE TEST IT NOW YOURSELF AND THEN ADD YOUR TEST TO THE TABLE.
       ** IF ALL GOES WELL WE CAN ROLL THE FINAL 1.2.3 TARBALL IN A FEW DAYS.

       +----- [ essential platform which we really need to test successfully
       |        PLEASE ADJUST! ]

    o Still known problems with compilation and/or runtime:
      (When any occur we fix it immediateley in 1.2.3-dev
       and roll a new pre-release)

      - HARMLESS: Under IRIX 5.3 I was unable to compile with GCC because of
        the regex library. First regcomp.c fails with a lot of errors due to
        missing defines for system include files sys/types.h.  After setting
        "EXTRA_CFLAGS=-D_MIPS_SZINT=32 -D_MIPS_SZLONG=32" these were gone but
        then gcc is still not happy. It shouts with a lot of warnings and
        errors. After manually switching to CC=cc all compiles fine. [rse]
        => What should we do? Dean thinks forcing CC=cc by Configure
           is NOT the correct thing. So what else should we do for IRIX?

      - HARMLESS: On taz (BSD/OS 2.1) it compiles only with CC=cc because the
        gcc (found by Configure) there (=/usr/local/bin/gcc) needs an
        additional -lbind because of inet_addr and inet_ntoa. No real problem
        with Apache, I think, but a little one on taz itself.  [rse]
        => We can ignore this because seems to be related
           to the BIND 8.1 installation and not to BSD/OS itself.

      - HARMLESS: "Digital Unix 4.0 throws a bunch of casting warnings"
        when compiling with gcc [Lars]
