Subject [RELEASE CANDIDATE] mod_perl-1.31 RC6
Date Fri, 13 Mar 2009 15:26:26 GMT
Apologies, but RC5 was generated on a Mac and included bogus resource forks
in the tarball, breaking MakeMaker on any non-mac platform. This RC is the
exact same thing as RC5, without the resource forks.

The mod_perl 1.31 release candidate 6 is ready. It can be downloaded here:

SHA1(mod_perl-1.31-rc6.tar.gz)= 1b917d51fd4b0030cd8d018a35d3d98cdfcca0a4
MD5(mod_perl-1.31-rc6.tar.gz)= db7b0bde837ba8b2ffef855218d9360f

Please give it a spin in your favorite configuration and report
any problems. Especially needed against Perl-5.10 and on Windows.

The summary of what has changed since 1.30 are (from Changes):

On Win32, mod_perl.h needs to include <malloc.h> before the perl
headers, at least when built with USE_ITHREADS
[Steve Hay]

Win32 needs PERL_SYS_INIT/PERL_SYS_TERM calls when built with
USE_ITHREADS [sic--that's different to USE_THREADS]. In fact,
they ought to be always called if they are defined
[Steve Hay]

Fix potential segfault when the environment contains
NULL values [Mike Schilli]

Fix static APACI build against newer apache-1.3.38+

Fixed modules/regex.t test 4 on Win32
[Steve Hay]

Avoid possible segfault when PerlFreshRestart is On.
[Michael Rendell <>]

Prevent segfault when running with perl >= 5.9.3
[Steve Hay]

Fix shared libary extensions on Win32 to be .dll not .so
[Nikolay Ananiev <>]

Patch to mod_perl.dsp to remove /D _WINSOCK2API_ on Win32
for perl >= 5.8.6 [Steve Hay]
