9     * Some changes to support the new PHP REQUEST_STATUS environment

19    
20    ** Changes from 0.1.2 to 0.1.3 - 20/01/2003
21     * Added DefaultCharset configuration directive. The default
22       character set given, will be appended to all text mime types.
23     * Corrected bug in KeepAlive usage in HTTP/1.1, which made the
24       server to ignore the value sent by the client.
25     * CGIAction can now be used even if HIC CGIs are disabled.
26     * Some optimizations in HTTP header parsing.
27     * Added a more complete mime.types in examples/ contributed by
28       <voidnull@qnet.pl>.
29     * Added the MaxSSLConnections configuration directive.
30     * Two mutexes are used in accept to allow parallel accepts
31       of SSL and plain connections.
32     * Added Dependency on gnutls 0.8.0.
33    
34    ** Changes from 0.1.1 to 0.1.2 - 08/01/2003
35     * Allow running the server as root, if explicitly stated in
36       configuration file. Patch by James Harr <james@grickle.org>
37     * Better pthreads detection.
38     * Outputs to error log if non executable CGIs are found.
39     * Does not close HTTP/1.1 connections by default.
40     * The current behavour is to demand the Host header in HTTP/1.1
41       requests.
42     * Added support for CGIAction CGIs. There are just like CGIs
43       but they are not executed. They are parsed using a given program.
44     * Added init script for redhat in contrib/redhat/rc.hydra,
45       contributed by <voidnull@qnet.pl>.
46    
47    ** Changes from 0.1.0 to 0.1.1 - 17/12/2002
48     * Corrected bug in Keep-Alive mode when SSL or TLS was enabled.
49     * Fixed unexpected timeout in first connection on an idle server.
50    
51    ** Changes from 0.0.10 to 0.1.0 - 16/11/2002
52     * No changes. This is the final release by me --Nikos
53    
54    ** Changes from 0.0.9 to 0.0.10 - 08/11/2002
55     * Corrected bug in error logging.
56     * Use the TMPDIR environment variable instead of TMP to get
57       the temporary directory.
58    
59    ** Changes from 0.0.8 to 0.0.9 - 27/10/2002
60     * Long offsets are not used by default.
61     * Use of pipes instead of temporary files, if the post data sent
62       are less than PIPE_BUF.
63     * More consistent logging. The server's hostname or "unknown"
64       are prepended to the log message.
65     * Corrected redirection/aliases behaviour, to match the documented one.
66     * SSLParamsRefresh was renamed to MaintenanceInterval and is more
67       generic, since it includes some server cleanups.
68     * Added file access control lists per virtual host. Based on patch for
69       Boa by Peter Korsgaard <jacmet@sunsite.dk>
70     * Added the ability to disable HIC threads by using 0 in the
71       HICThreads configuration directive.
72     * Hydra now uses poll by default. Select is available using the --with-select
73       configure option.
74    
75    ** Changes from 0.0.7 to 0.0.8 - 25/10/2002
76     * Better pthread detection.
77     * Better detection of dlopen call.
78     * Some changes to compile in gcc 2.95
79     * Added support for FreeBSD's sendfile (untested).
80    [Ported from Boa 0.94.14rc1]
81     * add new state, IOSHUFFLE, which utilizes sendfile (or
82       emulates it using the request's buffer, otherwise)
83     * make the default socket size 32K.  The client_stream_size stays constant
84       at 8K, and the new 'buffer' size is 4K
85       Note also that the new code uses the "default" socket buffer size
86       it obtains with the first accept()ed socket.
87     * make default behavior be to leave stderr alone, but tie it
88       to cgilog otherwise
89     * add [optional, Linux-only] check for sendfile system call
90     * use --disable-sendfile to disable sendfile support
91       sendfile support for files > 100K is default, now.
92       It's significantly faster and easier than the alternative
93     * umask ~0770 before exec
94     * tie stdout to the access_log, unless there is no access_log,
95       in which case tie it to /dev/null
96     * use sensible defaults for umask (077) and (027 for CGI)
97     * add and document new parameters (CGILog and CGIumask)
98     * vast improvements to the cgi-test.cgi program, by Jon Nelson
99       and Landon Curt Noll.
100     * next 3 items by Don Mahurin (patches modified somewhat):
101     * pidfile patch
102     * default mime_types patch
103     * NCSA environment environment variables wrapped in
104       #ifdef USE_NCSA_CGI_ENV
105     * fix some escaping issues with the directory indexer
106       (Ulf Harnhammar)
107     * backport poll support from 0.95
108    
109    ** Changes from 0.0.6 to 0.0.7 - 10/10/2002
110     * Added support for large files in 32 bit systems.
111     * Added support for SSL_* variables in CGIs.
112     * Added options in configuration file, to request and verify
113       a client certificate.
114     * The headers of HIC-CGIs are now parsed by the server.
115     * Corrected behavour in SIGHUP signal handling, to reread
116       the SSL related variables.
117     * Children and HIC threads are now killed using a signal, to avoid
118       unexpected errors, and memory leaks.
119    
120    ** Changes from 0.0.5 to 0.0.6 - 03/10/2002
121     * Compatibility functions are now automatically included in hydra, if
122       they are not found by the configure script.
123     * Replaced the included scandir function, with the one in libc.
124     * Fixed code, which compiled fine with gcc 3.2, but didn't compile at
125       all, with any other compiler!
126     * Improved the MaxConnections directive semantics.
127     * Added a very primitive mime.types file in examples/ directory.
128    
129    ** Changes from 0.0.4 to 0.0.5 - 02/10/2002
130     * If a requested CGI is not accesible then send 404 not found, instead
131       of trying to execute it.
132     * Corrected several stuff in HIC CGI handler. This allows Cookies,
133       POST data and Queries to work properly.
134    
135    ** Changes from 0.0.3 to 0.0.4 - 30/09/2002
136     * Added support for If-Range, If-Match, If-None-Match HTTP/1.1 header
137       fields. The server also generates ETag headers for static content using
138       the last modified field of the file, and the file size. This makes
139       Hydra cache friendly.
140     * Added support for multiple HIC threads. This gives a boost to script generation
141       since they are no longer generated sequentially.
142    
143    ** Changes from 0.0.2 to 0.0.3 - 28/09/2002
144     * Added support for dynamic modules that handle CGIs
145       internally (HIC). That way Hydra can run PHP.
146     * Fixes in CGI execution. CGIs that are not passed from aliasing
147       functions now properly set PATH_INFO and PATH_TRANSLATED.
148       (Needs further cleanup).
149     * Cleaned up SSL support. Now hydra can be compiled even if gnutls
150       is not available.
151    
152    ** Changes from Boa/0.94.13 to Hydra/0.0.2 - 26/09/2002
153     * Added support for SSL 3.0 and TLS 1.0 protocols.
154     * Added support for multiple CPU's by making the server
155       run over a pool of threads.
156     * Changed the file caching code. The mmap() calls are cached until
157       the mmap list table is full.
158     * Added support for HTTP/1.1 ranges.
159     * Added support for hostname based virtual hosting.
160       Also changed the semantics of Alias, ScriptAlias and Redirect, to
161       take advantage of the host based virtual hosting.
162     * Added support for the TCP_CORK tcp option in linux.
163     * Cleaned up the CGI handling (gunzip, indexer are treated as CGIs)
164     * Enhanced grammar to handle 3 and 4 argument options.
165     * Added support for multiple directory indexes.
166     * Dropped support for gunzip.
167     * Use automake to create the distribution.
168    
169  ** Changes from 0.94.12 to 0.94.13  ** Changes from 0.94.12 to 0.94.13
170   * Change many instances of log_error_mesg + exit to DIE macro   * Change many instances of log_error_mesg + exit to DIE macro
171   * Change all instance of log_error_mesg (without exit) to WARN macro   * Change all instance of log_error_mesg (without exit) to WARN macro
