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  
are
    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
    addressed:

      * CVE-2008-2939 (cve.mitre.org)
        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:

      http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi

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

      http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/new_features_2_2.html

    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  
earlier
    releases is available:

      http://httpd.apache.org/security/vulnerabilities_22.html

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

    This release includes the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) version  
1.3.0
    bundled with the tar and zip distributions.  The APR libraries  
libapr
    and libaprutil (and on Win32, libapriconv) must all be updated to  
ensure
    binary compatibility and address many known platform bugs.

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

      http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/httpd/httpd/branches/2.2.x/VERSIONING

    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  
(other
    than the Prefork MPM), you must ensure that any modules you will be
    using (and the libraries they depend on) are thread-safe.
