Revision 1.22 - (hide annotations)
Wed Oct 2 15:17:42 2002 UTC (19 years ago) by nmav
Branch: MAIN
Changes since 1.21: +4 -1 lines
Moved alphasort.c to strutil.c.

1 nmav 1.21 ** Changes from 0.0.5 to 0.0.6
2     * Compatibility functions are now automatically included in hydra, if
3     they are not found by the configure script.
4 nmav 1.22 * Replaced the included scandir function, with the one in libc.
5     * Fixed stuff, which compiled fine with gcc 3.2, but didn't compile at
6     all, with any other compiler!
7 nmav 1.21
8 nmav 1.20 ** Changes from 0.0.4 to 0.0.5 - 02/10/2002
9 nmav 1.18 * If a requested CGI is not accesible then send 404 not found, instead
10     of trying to execute it.
11 nmav 1.19 * Corrected several stuff in HIC CGI handler. This allows Cookies,
12     POST data and Queries to work properly.
13 nmav 1.18
14 nmav 1.17 ** Changes from 0.0.3 to 0.0.4 - 30/09/2002
15 nmav 1.14 * Added support for If-Range, If-Match, If-None-Match HTTP/1.1 header
16     fields. The server also generates ETag headers for static content using
17 nmav 1.15 the last modified field of the file, and the file size. This makes
18     Hydra cache friendly.
19 nmav 1.16 * Added support for multiple HIC threads. This gives a boost to script generation
20 nmav 1.22 since they are no longer generated sequentially.
21 nmav 1.14
22 nmav 1.13 ** Changes from 0.0.2 to 0.0.3 - 28/09/2002
23 nmav 1.11 * Added support for dynamic modules that handle CGIs
24     internally (HIC). That way Hydra can run PHP.
25     * Fixes in CGI execution. CGIs that are not passed from aliasing
26     functions now properly set PATH_INFO and PATH_TRANSLATED.
27     (Needs further cleanup).
28 nmav 1.12 * Cleaned up SSL support. Now hydra can be compiled even if gnutls
29     is not available.
30 nmav 1.11
31 nmav 1.9 ** Changes from Boa/0.94.13 to Hydra/0.0.2 - 26/09/2002
32 nmav 1.2 * Added support for SSL 3.0 and TLS 1.0 protocols.
33     * Added support for multiple CPU's by making the server
34     run over a pool of threads.
35     * Changed the file caching code. The mmap() calls are cached until
36     the mmap list table is full.
37     * Added support for HTTP/1.1 ranges.
38 nmav 1.4 * Added support for hostname based virtual hosting.
39 nmav 1.5 Also changed the semantics of Alias, ScriptAlias and Redirect, to
40     take advantage of the host based virtual hosting.
41 nmav 1.3 * Added support for the TCP_CORK tcp option in linux.
42     * Cleaned up the CGI handling (gunzip, indexer are treated as CGIs)
43 nmav 1.10 * Enhanced grammar to handle 3 and 4 argument options.
44 nmav 1.7 * Added support for multiple directory indexes.
45     * Dropped support for gunzip.
46 nmav 1.8 * Use automake to create the distribution.
47 nmav 1.2
48 nmav 1.1 ** Changes from 0.94.12 to 0.94.13
49     * Change many instances of log_error_mesg + exit to DIE macro
50     * Change all instance of log_error_mesg (without exit) to WARN macro
51     * do a much better job of checking return values from malloc and
52     especially strdup.
53     * check results of calling umask and getrlimit
54     * server_s is no longer a global int
55     * check results of fork via switch instead of if (fork())
56     * check for getopt.h and include it if found
57     * remove unused #defines, and add WARN macro, and replace
58     many calls to log_error_mesg(..) with WARN macro
59     * fix bug in get_commonlog_time where time_offset calculation was
60     the opposite of what it should be ('-' and '+' were swapped)
61     * fix compatability bug with old and newer versions of flex/yacc
62     * add check for AC_FUNC_MMAP to configure.in
63     * fix really lame thinko in normalize_path, which would prepend the
64     results of earlier calls to results from later calls
65     * Add MaxConnections, a configuration directive which allows the
66     user to specify the maximum number of connections that Boa will
67     accept concurrently.
68     * add SERVER_ADDR and REQUEST_URI to environment of CGI
69     * handle SIGBUS during writes of data that has been memory mapped
70     * minor optimization in select.c that prevents DEAD requests from
71     being added to the block set
72     * fix bug in CGI environment script_name - closes sf.net bug #576725
73     * make 'status' variable local to requests.c, not local to every file
74     by forgetting to declare 'extern' in globals.h :-|
75     * make getsockname non-fatal, and do it every time because we may
76     need it for the CGI
77     * some minor refactoring optimizations in hash.c
78    
79     ** Changes from 0.94.11 to 0.94.12
80     * Renamed Changelog ChangeLog, and moved up to top-level directory
81     * Next 3 items due in part or whole thanks to
82     Liam Widdowson
83     * when printf'ing a pid type, force to int, because it could be
84     something else on other platforms. Should probably change it to
85     a long, and use that.
86     * backported chroot commandline support from 0.95
87     * backported support for strdup, strstr, alphasort, and scandir
88     from 0.95
89     * Fixed src/Makefile.in -- it didn't remove index_dir.o
90     * backport create_temporary_file from 0.95
91     (instead of using tmpnam)
92     * Allow non-standard date format 31 September 2000 23:59:59 GMT
93     Patch by Landon Curt Noll
94     * Skip whitespace before HTTP/major.minor
95     Adapted patch from Landon Curt Noll
96     * open /dev/null first thing (affects chrooting)
97     * properly handle sigalrm -- use sigalrm_flag and sigalrm_run
98     instead of handling the signal in the signal handler
99     * update manpage slightly
100     * send 400 BAD Request when resource does not start with '/'
101     * add grp.h to boa.h's includes -- remove from boa.c and config.c
102     * removed duplicate header includes from boa.c, config.c, get.c,
103     ip.c, request.c, response.c
104     * factor out creating the server socket and dropping privs
105     into create_server_socket and drop_privs
106     * type all functions in boa.c (except main) as static
107     * set umask after opening /dev/null
108     * tie stdin/stdout to /dev/null before commandline parse
109     * removed old, unused chroot code
110     * move builds_needs_escape earlier in the startup
111     * move fork later in the startup
112     * type all c_set_* as static in config.c
113     * don't bother trying to change uid/gid (or error if the
114     requested uid/gid doesn't exist) if not UID 0
115     * return more appropriate error code when foo.html gives
116     access denied, but foo.html.gz gives some other error
117     (essentially report error associated with foo.html, not foo.html.gz)
118     * send NOT Implemented when an unknown method is attempted
119     * always attempt a 32k read right before close
120     (stopgap until blackhole can be merged)
121     * allow more than 1 space in logline between method, resource,
122     and http version
123     * don't use inline functions
124     * update configure.in so that autoconf 2.50 doesn't complain (as much)
125     * properly use VPATH and srcdir according to autoconf docs
126     * change curly-braces to parentheses in Makefilein
127     * use $^ instead of manually listing the dependencies in Makefile.in
128     * remove tests section in Makefile.in
129     * write tags not TAGS in Makefile.in
130     * Add gethostbyname and inet_aton to function checks
131     * Add code from 0.95 which checks for socket in -lsocket,
132     inet_aton in -lresolv, and gethost{by}name in -lnsl
133     * Also remove broken bc-based "how big is an unsigned int" checks:
134     assume minimum of 32 bits and check in escape.c at runtime.
135     * Added new file: README.chroot.solaris, based on a
136     modified version by Liam Widdowson
137     * Add check_struct_for.m4, which allows us to check a structure
138     for a member (found at http://www.gnu.org/software/ac-archive/
139     authored by Wes Hardaker
140     * Call "aclocal -I ." to rebuild aclocal.m4
141     * Using new check-struct-for-member autoconf macro, check
142     for tm_gmtoff and tm_zone in struct tm -- useful in
143     portability tests for localtime.
144     * Also check sockaddr_in for structure sin_len so we can set
145     it properly.
146     * index_dir.c (which ends up in boa_indexer) can now be compiled
147     with USE_LOCALTIME, and if so, it will report the local time
148     using the timezone name. Otherwise it uses UTC time and UTC
149     timezone designation.
150     * fix buglet in mmap_cache.c which shows up when under
151     heavy load by many different files.
152     Found and squashed by Michal Kara
153     * normalize paths on Aliases, log files, server root, dirmaker
154     This makes sure that paths are 'absolute'
155     * don't generate DOCUMENT_ROOT or SERVER_ROOT,
156     CGIs have no business knowing that information
157     * if CGI, chdir to the cgi's root path
158     Bug found by Matt Callaway
159     * remove ChrootPath and PidFile directives from the parser
160     (they aren't used anyway)
161     * keep track of maximum file descriptor in use to optimize call
162     to select()
163     * apply IPv6 patch from Jari Korva
164     * optimize keep-alive copy data routine
165     * try to use memcpy instead of strcpy/strcat in more places (alias.c)
166     * update .depend file
167     * use fcntl + GET_FL to get a file descriptor's flags, then
168     add or remove only the bits we want to set. This prevents
169     accidentally setting or unsettings bits we don't have anything
170     to do with inadvertantly. (removed, at least temporarily.
171     Show me a system where it is needed -- LRD)
172     * make sure to call FD_ZERO when we handle a restart
173     * in read.c, don't call boa_perror on read failure -- socket is
174     dead or messed up anyway, no reason to try to write to it.
175     * explicit .SUFFIXES in Makefile.in
176     * boa.objdump target added
177     * use @MAKE_SET@ (for when $(MAKE) != "make")
178     * add -Wundef -Wwrite-strings -Wredundant-decls -Winline to GCC_FLAGS
179     * change Paul Phillips' and Larry Doolittle's emails in source
180     * add --disable-debug, --enable-profile, --with-dmalloc, and --with-efence
181     * test for failed-but-return-was-successful setuid:
182     http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/1322
183     * use _exit not exit in CGI child
184     * always place new keepalive request on blocked list, we can't be
185     sure of the state of the active list, and since enqueue places
186     things at the *front* of the list, it doesn't do us much good
187     to place the new request on the active list anyway.
188     * update some Copyright statements for 2002
189     * When comparing the uri to an alias, only compare if
190     the uri length is greater than or equal to the length of the alias
191     * in init_script_alias, make sure to check for document_root before
192     trying to use it
193     * script_name is now just a copy of the request, rather
194     than some complicated variation on the pathname
195     * change the way the CGI environment is handled.
196     Now, it is allocated at request allocation time, and exists
197     throughout the life of the structure.
198     * check memory allocations, etc.. when creating the static
199     CGI environment and when making new CGI environment variables
200     * wait until process_option_end to call unescape_uri, clean_pathname,
201     and translate_uri
202     * remove debian package information
203     * move RedHat packaging information to contrib
204     * remove tests -- they weren't usable anyway
205     * add some new hash routines, and use djb2 (a variant on a
206     hash algorithm popularized by Dan J. Bernstein)
207     * a side-effect of the new hash routines is a bugfix,
208     involving negative return values from hash routines.
209     This has been fixed.
210     * add a routine, show_hash_stats, which is called with other
211     statistical output via sigalarm
212     * remove some duplicate prototypes from config.c
213     * make simple_itoa take an unsigned int
214     * try to make NOBLOCK handling in compat.h compatible with Solaris
215     * make sure to update current_time before calling signal handlers
216     * alter primary loop to make sure that select gets called even
217     when there are requests that are not blocking, and call fdset_update
218     and process_requests (when appropriate) after signal handlers but
219     before select to make sure that blocked requests are still handled
220     by select after a sighup. (Thanks to Karl Olsen)
221     * pull select loop into select.c
222     * poll server socket once per active connection
223     * add send_r_service_unavailable and use it when appropriate
224     * state uptime in seconds at normal program termination
225     * include sys/fcntl.h if it is found by configure
226     * fix POST bug where a content-length < 0 would cause Boa to
227     consume its full share of CPU until killed
228     Bug report by Landon Curt Noll
229     * add CGIPath configuration variable
230     based upon a patch by Landon Curt Noll
231     * add function boa_atoi, which wraps atoi, but does not
232     accept negative values. Additionally, it checks to make sure
233     the converted value and the original value are the same, avoiding
234     issues like "124.3" -> "123" and "123abc" -=> "123".
235     Either a value is an int or it isn't - no middle ground.
236     * use boa_atoi to convert content-length from client.
237     * add new #define - SINGLE_POST_LIMIT_DEFAULT, which defines
238     (in bytes) the *default* single_post_limit.
239     * single_post_limit is now in bytes.
240     * when adding aliases, only "normalize" paths that start
241     with "./" - this is a departure from previous behavior
242     * add "?" to the list of characters that it is safe to leave unescaped
243     * clean up Makefile.in of no-longer-pertinent comments
244     * add send_r_bad_gateway and use it
245     * tie stderr to either cgi_log_fd or devnullfd - either way
246     make sure stderr is a valid filehandle before cgi execution
247     * cgi_env is no longer allocated, it's part of the struct now
248     * fix bug in CgiPath logic
249     * when unable to allocate memory for an environment variable, log it
250     * add clear_common_env, which de-allocates the cgi_common_env stuff
251     [NEVER USE THIS outside of a terminal signal handler!]
252     * don't be so wasteful of memory in normalize_path
253     * adapted fix for alias expansion from Brieuc Jeunhomme
254    
255     ** Changes from 0.94.10.1 to 0.94.11
256     * use LIBS in Makefile.in (which propagates from autoconf)
257     * properly free memory allocated by scandir in index_dir.c
258     * rearrange some header files and includes
259     * on reads and writes, don't check for -1, check for < 0
260     * include fix by William Meadows
261     for escape.c which fixes segfaults due to improper allocation
262     * above fix by William Meadows no longer needed;
263     escape.c and escape.h rewritten by Larry Doolittle -- requires
264     at least 32 bit words, but is correct (jdn's 1st attempt was faulty)
265    
266     ** Changes from 0.94.10 to 0.94.10.1
267     * Actually update the SERVER_VERSION in src/defines.h
268    
269     ** Changes from 0.94.9 to 0.94.10
270     * Fixes escaping rules
271     * Fixes segfault when directory_index is undefined and
272     directory needs to be generated
273     * adds dummy signal handlers for SIGUSR1 and SIGUSR2 (Closes SF #425921)
274     * Update documentation regarding mime.types (Closes Debian #69991)
275     * Make sure documentation builds (Closes Debian #110818)
276    
277     ** Changes from 0.94.8.3 to 0.94.9
278     * src/Makefile.in updated to take CFLAGS, LIBS, and LDFLAGS
279     from autoconf
280     * Update escaping rules with latest RFC
281     * unescape_uri skips fragments and also stop parsing at '?'
282     * Don't accept fd over FD_SETSIZE in request.c:get_request
283     * use backported documentation from 0.95
284     * make sure POST fd gets closed even on client cancel
285     * use backported index_dir.c from 0.95
286     * support subdirectories in ScriptAlias directories
287     * add SinglePostLimit (int, in Kilobytes) to config system
288     * check for ENOSPC on body write
289     * use environment variable TMP (or "/tmp" if not available),
290     and chdir there when boa exits.
291     * add 1-time-only hack to make a 32kB read at the end of a request
292     on POST or PUT
293     * close unused file descriptors (/dev/null in boa.c, and the
294     unused part of the pipes call in cgi.c)
295     * made Makefile.in VPATH happy
296    
297     ** Changes from 0.94.8.2 to 0.94.8.3
298     * Move unescape_uri *before* clean_pathname to prevent
299     encoding of / and .. in pathname
300     * wrap execution of GUNZIP in cgi.c with #ifdef GUNZIP
301     * stop parsing when fragment found in URL ('#')
302    
303     ** Changes from 0.94.8.1 to 0.94.8.2
