The summary of what has changed since 1.29 are (from Changes):

SECURITY: CVE-2007-1349 (
fix unescaped variable interpolation in Apache::PerlRun
regular expression to prevent regex engine tampering.
reported by Alex Solovey
[Randal L. Schwartz <>, Fred Moyer <>]

Pull in the new Apache-SizeLimit from
and obsolete the previous lib/Apache/
[Philip M. Gollucci]

Fix an Apache::(Registry|PerlRun) bug caused by special characters
in the url []

Display a more verbose message if can't be loaded
[Geoffrey Young]

Fix incorrect win32 detection in Apache::SizeLimit reported by
Matt Phillips <> [Philippe M. Chiasson]

The print-a-scalar-reference feature is now deprecated and documented
as such [Stas]

fix "PerlSetVar Foo 0" so that $r->dir_config('Foo') returns 0, not undef
[Geoffrey Young]

for some reason .pm files during the modperl build see $ENV{PERL5LIB}
set in Makefile.PL, which is used for generating Makefiles, as
"PERL5LIB=/path:/another/path" instead of "/path:/another/path"
essentially rendering this env var useless. I'm not sure why, may be
MakeMaker kicks in somewhere. Trying to workaround by
s/PERL5LIB/PERL5LIB_ENV/, using anything that's not PERL5LIB. [Stas]

change $INC{$key} = undef; to delete $INC{$key}; in PerlFreshRestart
[Geoffrey Young]

Fix a bug in Makefile.PL for Win32 where it would, in
certain cases, pick up the wrong Perl include directory
[Steve Hay]
