                     Apache HTTP Server 2.2.9 Released

The Apache Software Foundation and the Apache HTTP Server Project are
pleased to announce the release of version 2.2.9 of the Apache HTTP  
("Apache").  This version of Apache is principally a bug and security  
release. The following potential security flaws are addressed:

   * CVE-2008-2364 (
     mod_proxy_http: Better handling of excessive interim responses
     from origin server to prevent potential denial of service and high
     memory usage. Reported by Ryujiro Shibuya.

   * CVE-2007-6420 (
     mod_proxy_balancer: Prevent CSRF attacks against the balancer- 

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

Apache HTTP Server 2.2.9 is available for download from:

Apache 2.2 offers numerous enhancements, improvements, and performance
boosts over the 2.0 codebase.  For an overview of new features  
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_2.2.9 provides the
complete list of changes since 2.2.8. A summary of security  
which were addressed in the previous 2.2.8 and earlier releases is  

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

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