Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT] Apache HTTP Server 2.2.10 Released
Date Thu, 16 Oct 2008 19:51:22 GMT
                        Apache HTTP Server 2.2.10 Released

    The Apache Software Foundation and the Apache HTTP Server Project  
    pleased to announce the release of version 2.2.10 of the Apache HTTP
    Server ("Apache").  This version of Apache is principally a bug and
    security fix release. The following potential security flaws are

      * CVE-2008-2939 (
        mod_proxy_ftp: Prevent XSS attacks when using wildcards in the
        path of the FTP URL. Discovered by Marc Bevand of Rapid7.

    We consider this release to be the best version of Apache  
available, and
    encourage users of all prior versions to upgrade.

    Apache HTTP Server 2.2.10 is available for download from:

    Apache 2.2 offers numerous enhancements, improvements, and  
    boosts over the 2.0 codebase.  For an overview of new features
    introduced since 2.0 please see:

    Please see the CHANGES_2.2 file, linked from the download page,  
for a
    full list of changes.  A condensed list, CHANGES_2.2.10 provides the
    complete list of changes since 2.2.9. A summary of security
    vulnerabilities which were addressed in the previous 2.2.9 and  
    releases is available:

    Apache HTTP Server 1.3.41 and 2.0.63 legacy releases are also  
    available.  See the appropriate CHANGES from the url above.  See the
    corresponding CHANGES files linked from the download page.  The  
    HTTP Project developers strongly encourage all users to migrate to
    Apache 2.2, as only limited maintenance is performed on these legacy

    This release includes the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) version  
    bundled with the tar and zip distributions.  The APR libraries  
    and libaprutil (and on Win32, libapriconv) must all be updated to  
    binary compatibility and address many known platform bugs.

    This release builds on and extends the Apache 2.0 API.  Modules  
    for Apache 2.0 will need to be recompiled in order to run with  
    2.2, and require minimal or no source code changes.

    When upgrading or installing this version of Apache, please bear  
in mind
    that if you intend to use Apache with one of the threaded MPMs  
    than the Prefork MPM), you must ensure that any modules you will be
    using (and the libraries they depend on) are thread-safe.
