Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT] Apache HTTP Server 2.2.9 Released
Date Sat, 14 Jun 2008 11:40:46 GMT
                        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 Server
    ("Apache").  This version of Apache is principally a bug and  
security fix
    release. The following potential security flaws are addressed:

      * CVE-2008-2364 (cve.mitre.org)
        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 (cve.mitre.org)
        mod_proxy_balancer: Prevent CSRF attacks against the balancer- 
manager
        interface.


    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:

      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_2.2.9 provides the
    complete list of changes since 2.2.8. A summary of security  
vulnerabilities
    which were addressed in the previous 2.2.8 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.
