Branch: MAIN
Changes since 1.50: +3 -0 lines
Better large file support (now uses the included autoconf macros).
(++some indentation)

1 ** Changes from 0.1.3 to 0.2.0
2 * Better large file support (now uses the included autoconf macros)
3
4 ** Changes from 0.1.2 to 0.1.3 - 20/01/2003
5 * Added DefaultCharset configuration directive. The default
6 character set given, will be appended to all text mime types.
7 * Corrected bug in KeepAlive usage in HTTP/1.1, which made the
8 server to ignore the value sent by the client.
9 * CGIAction can now be used even if HIC CGIs are disabled.
10 * Some optimizations in HTTP header parsing.
11 * Added a more complete mime.types in examples/ contributed by
12 <voidnull@qnet.pl>.
13 * Added the MaxSSLConnections configuration directive.
14 * Two mutexes are used in accept to allow parallel accepts
15 of SSL and plain connections.
16 * Added Dependency on gnutls 0.8.0.
17
18 ** Changes from 0.1.1 to 0.1.2 - 08/01/2003
19 * Allow running the server as root, if explicitly stated in
20 configuration file. Patch by James Harr <james@grickle.org>
21 * Better pthreads detection.
22 * Outputs to error log if non executable CGIs are found.
23 * Does not close HTTP/1.1 connections by default.
24 * The current behavour is to demand the Host header in HTTP/1.1
25 requests.
26 * Added support for CGIAction CGIs. There are just like CGIs
27 but they are not executed. They are parsed using a given program.
28 * Added init script for redhat in contrib/redhat/rc.hydra,
29 contributed by <voidnull@qnet.pl>.
30
31 ** Changes from 0.1.0 to 0.1.1 - 17/12/2002
32 * Corrected bug in Keep-Alive mode when SSL or TLS was enabled.
33 * Fixed unexpected timeout in first connection on an idle server.
34
35 ** Changes from 0.0.10 to 0.1.0 - 16/11/2002
36 * No changes. This is the final release by me --Nikos
37
38 ** Changes from 0.0.9 to 0.0.10 - 08/11/2002
39 * Corrected bug in error logging.
40 * Use the TMPDIR environment variable instead of TMP to get
41 the temporary directory.
42
43 ** Changes from 0.0.8 to 0.0.9 - 27/10/2002
44 * Long offsets are not used by default.
45 * Use of pipes instead of temporary files, if the post data sent
46 are less than PIPE_BUF.
47 * More consistent logging. The server's hostname or "unknown"
48 are prepended to the log message.
49 * Corrected redirection/aliases behaviour, to match the documented one.
50 * SSLParamsRefresh was renamed to MaintenanceInterval and is more
51 generic, since it includes some server cleanups.
52 * Added file access control lists per virtual host. Based on patch for
53 Boa by Peter Korsgaard <jacmet@sunsite.dk>
54 * Added the ability to disable HIC threads by using 0 in the
55 HICThreads configuration directive.
56 * Hydra now uses poll by default. Select is available using the --with-select
57 configure option.
58
59 ** Changes from 0.0.7 to 0.0.8 - 25/10/2002
60 * Better pthread detection.
61 * Better detection of dlopen call.
62 * Some changes to compile in gcc 2.95
63 * Added support for FreeBSD's sendfile (untested).
64 [Ported from Boa 0.94.14rc1]
65 * add new state, IOSHUFFLE, which utilizes sendfile (or
66 emulates it using the request's buffer, otherwise)
67 * make the default socket size 32K. The client_stream_size stays constant
68 at 8K, and the new 'buffer' size is 4K
69 Note also that the new code uses the "default" socket buffer size
70 it obtains with the first accept()ed socket.
71 * make default behavior be to leave stderr alone, but tie it
72 to cgilog otherwise
73 * add [optional, Linux-only] check for sendfile system call
74 * use --disable-sendfile to disable sendfile support
75 sendfile support for files > 100K is default, now.
76 It's significantly faster and easier than the alternative
77 * umask ~0770 before exec
78 * tie stdout to the access_log, unless there is no access_log,
79 in which case tie it to /dev/null
80 * use sensible defaults for umask (077) and (027 for CGI)
81 * add and document new parameters (CGILog and CGIumask)
82 * vast improvements to the cgi-test.cgi program, by Jon Nelson
83 and Landon Curt Noll.
84 * next 3 items by Don Mahurin (patches modified somewhat):
85 * pidfile patch
86 * default mime_types patch
87 * NCSA environment environment variables wrapped in
88 #ifdef USE_NCSA_CGI_ENV
89 * fix some escaping issues with the directory indexer
90 (Ulf Harnhammar)
91 * backport poll support from 0.95
92
93 ** Changes from 0.0.6 to 0.0.7 - 10/10/2002
94 * Added support for large files in 32 bit systems.
95 * Added support for SSL_* variables in CGIs.
96 * Added options in configuration file, to request and verify
97 a client certificate.
98 * The headers of HIC-CGIs are now parsed by the server.
99 * Corrected behavour in SIGHUP signal handling, to reread
100 the SSL related variables.
101 * Children and HIC threads are now killed using a signal, to avoid
102 unexpected errors, and memory leaks.
103
104 ** Changes from 0.0.5 to 0.0.6 - 03/10/2002
105 * Compatibility functions are now automatically included in hydra, if
106 they are not found by the configure script.
107 * Replaced the included scandir function, with the one in libc.
108 * Fixed code, which compiled fine with gcc 3.2, but didn't compile at
109 all, with any other compiler!
110 * Improved the MaxConnections directive semantics.
111 * Added a very primitive mime.types file in examples/ directory.
112
113 ** Changes from 0.0.4 to 0.0.5 - 02/10/2002
114 * If a requested CGI is not accesible then send 404 not found, instead
115 of trying to execute it.
116 * Corrected several stuff in HIC CGI handler. This allows Cookies,
117 POST data and Queries to work properly.
118
119 ** Changes from 0.0.3 to 0.0.4 - 30/09/2002
120 * Added support for If-Range, If-Match, If-None-Match HTTP/1.1 header
121 fields. The server also generates ETag headers for static content using
122 the last modified field of the file, and the file size. This makes
123 Hydra cache friendly.
124 * Added support for multiple HIC threads. This gives a boost to script generation
125 since they are no longer generated sequentially.
126
127 ** Changes from 0.0.2 to 0.0.3 - 28/09/2002
128 * Added support for dynamic modules that handle CGIs
129 internally (HIC). That way Hydra can run PHP.
130 * Fixes in CGI execution. CGIs that are not passed from aliasing
131 functions now properly set PATH_INFO and PATH_TRANSLATED.
132 (Needs further cleanup).
133 * Cleaned up SSL support. Now hydra can be compiled even if gnutls
134 is not available.
135
136 ** Changes from Boa/0.94.13 to Hydra/0.0.2 - 26/09/2002
137 * Added support for SSL 3.0 and TLS 1.0 protocols.
138 * Added support for multiple CPU's by making the server
139 run over a pool of threads.
140 * Changed the file caching code. The mmap() calls are cached until
141 the mmap list table is full.
142 * Added support for HTTP/1.1 ranges.
143 * Added support for hostname based virtual hosting.
144 Also changed the semantics of Alias, ScriptAlias and Redirect, to
145 take advantage of the host based virtual hosting.
146 * Added support for the TCP_CORK tcp option in linux.
147 * Cleaned up the CGI handling (gunzip, indexer are treated as CGIs)
148 * Enhanced grammar to handle 3 and 4 argument options.
149 * Added support for multiple directory indexes.
150 * Dropped support for gunzip.
151 * Use automake to create the distribution.
152
153 ** Changes from 0.94.12 to 0.94.13
154 * Change many instances of log_error_mesg + exit to DIE macro
155 * Change all instance of log_error_mesg (without exit) to WARN macro
156 * do a much better job of checking return values from malloc and
157 especially strdup.
158 * check results of calling umask and getrlimit
159 * server_s is no longer a global int
160 * check results of fork via switch instead of if (fork())
161 * check for getopt.h and include it if found
162 * remove unused #defines, and add WARN macro, and replace
163 many calls to log_error_mesg(..) with WARN macro
164 * fix bug in get_commonlog_time where time_offset calculation was
165 the opposite of what it should be ('-' and '+' were swapped)
166 * fix compatability bug with old and newer versions of flex/yacc
167 * add check for AC_FUNC_MMAP to configure.in
168 * fix really lame thinko in normalize_path, which would prepend the
169 results of earlier calls to results from later calls
170 * Add MaxConnections, a configuration directive which allows the
171 user to specify the maximum number of connections that Boa will
172 accept concurrently.
173 * add SERVER_ADDR and REQUEST_URI to environment of CGI
174 * handle SIGBUS during writes of data that has been memory mapped
175 * minor optimization in select.c that prevents DEAD requests from
176 being added to the block set
177 * fix bug in CGI environment script_name - closes sf.net bug #576725
178 * make 'status' variable local to requests.c, not local to every file
179 by forgetting to declare 'extern' in globals.h :-|
180 * make getsockname non-fatal, and do it every time because we may
181 need it for the CGI
182 * some minor refactoring optimizations in hash.c
183
184 ** Changes from 0.94.11 to 0.94.12
185 * Renamed Changelog ChangeLog, and moved up to top-level directory
186 * Next 3 items due in part or whole thanks to
187 Liam Widdowson
188 * when printf'ing a pid type, force to int, because it could be
189 something else on other platforms. Should probably change it to
190 a long, and use that.
191 * backported chroot commandline support from 0.95
192 * backported support for strdup, strstr, alphasort, and scandir
193 from 0.95
194 * Fixed src/Makefile.in -- it didn't remove index_dir.o
195 * backport create_temporary_file from 0.95
196 (instead of using tmpnam)
197 * Allow non-standard date format 31 September 2000 23:59:59 GMT
198 Patch by Landon Curt Noll
199 * Skip whitespace before HTTP/major.minor
200 Adapted patch from Landon Curt Noll
201 * open /dev/null first thing (affects chrooting)
202 * properly handle sigalrm -- use sigalrm_flag and sigalrm_run
203 instead of handling the signal in the signal handler
204 * update manpage slightly
205 * send 400 BAD Request when resource does not start with '/'
206 * add grp.h to boa.h's includes -- remove from boa.c and config.c
207 * removed duplicate header includes from boa.c, config.c, get.c,
208 ip.c, request.c, response.c
209 * factor out creating the server socket and dropping privs
210 into create_server_socket and drop_privs
211 * type all functions in boa.c (except main) as static
212 * set umask after opening /dev/null
213 * tie stdin/stdout to /dev/null before commandline parse
214 * removed old, unused chroot code
215 * move builds_needs_escape earlier in the startup
216 * move fork later in the startup
217 * type all c_set_* as static in config.c
218 * don't bother trying to change uid/gid (or error if the
219 requested uid/gid doesn't exist) if not UID 0
220 * return more appropriate error code when foo.html gives
221 access denied, but foo.html.gz gives some other error
222 (essentially report error associated with foo.html, not foo.html.gz)
223 * send NOT Implemented when an unknown method is attempted
224 * always attempt a 32k read right before close
225 (stopgap until blackhole can be merged)
226 * allow more than 1 space in logline between method, resource,
227 and http version
228 * don't use inline functions
229 * update configure.in so that autoconf 2.50 doesn't complain (as much)
230 * properly use VPATH and srcdir according to autoconf docs
231 * change curly-braces to parentheses in Makefilein
232 * use $^ instead of manually listing the dependencies in Makefile.in
233 * remove tests section in Makefile.in
234 * write tags not TAGS in Makefile.in
235 * Add gethostbyname and inet_aton to function checks
236 * Add code from 0.95 which checks for socket in -lsocket,
237 inet_aton in -lresolv, and gethost{by}name in -lnsl
238 * Also remove broken bc-based "how big is an unsigned int" checks:
239 assume minimum of 32 bits and check in escape.c at runtime.
240 * Added new file: README.chroot.solaris, based on a
241 modified version by Liam Widdowson
242 * Add check_struct_for.m4, which allows us to check a structure
243 for a member (found at http://www.gnu.org/software/ac-archive/
244 authored by Wes Hardaker
245 * Call "aclocal -I ." to rebuild aclocal.m4
246 * Using new check-struct-for-member autoconf macro, check
247 for tm_gmtoff and tm_zone in struct tm -- useful in
248 portability tests for localtime.
249 * Also check sockaddr_in for structure sin_len so we can set
250 it properly.
251 * index_dir.c (which ends up in boa_indexer) can now be compiled
252 with USE_LOCALTIME, and if so, it will report the local time
253 using the timezone name. Otherwise it uses UTC time and UTC
254 timezone designation.
255 * fix buglet in mmap_cache.c which shows up when under
256 heavy load by many different files.
257 Found and squashed by Michal Kara
258 * normalize paths on Aliases, log files, server root, dirmaker
259 This makes sure that paths are 'absolute'
260 * don't generate DOCUMENT_ROOT or SERVER_ROOT,
261 CGIs have no business knowing that information
262 * if CGI, chdir to the cgi's root path
263 Bug found by Matt Callaway
264 * remove ChrootPath and PidFile directives from the parser
265 (they aren't used anyway)
266 * keep track of maximum file descriptor in use to optimize call
267 to select()
268 * apply IPv6 patch from Jari Korva
269 * optimize keep-alive copy data routine
270 * try to use memcpy instead of strcpy/strcat in more places (alias.c)
271 * update .depend file
272 * use fcntl + GET_FL to get a file descriptor's flags, then
273 add or remove only the bits we want to set. This prevents
274 accidentally setting or unsettings bits we don't have anything
275 to do with inadvertantly. (removed, at least temporarily.
276 Show me a system where it is needed -- LRD)
277 * make sure to call FD_ZERO when we handle a restart
278 * in read.c, don't call boa_perror on read failure -- socket is
279 dead or messed up anyway, no reason to try to write to it.
280 * explicit .SUFFIXES in Makefile.in
281 * boa.objdump target added
282 * use @MAKE_SET@ (for when $(MAKE) != "make")
283 * add -Wundef -Wwrite-strings -Wredundant-decls -Winline to GCC_FLAGS
284 * change Paul Phillips' and Larry Doolittle's emails in source
285 * add --disable-debug, --enable-profile, --with-dmalloc, and --with-efence
286 * test for failed-but-return-was-successful setuid:
287 http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/1322
288 * use _exit not exit in CGI child
289 * always place new keepalive request on blocked list, we can't be
290 sure of the state of the active list, and since enqueue places
291 things at the *front* of the list, it doesn't do us much good
292 to place the new request on the active list anyway.
293 * update some Copyright statements for 2002
294 * When comparing the uri to an alias, only compare if
295 the uri length is greater than or equal to the length of the alias
296 * in init_script_alias, make sure to check for document_root before
297 trying to use it
298 * script_name is now just a copy of the request, rather
299 than some complicated variation on the pathname
300 * change the way the CGI environment is handled.
301 Now, it is allocated at request allocation time, and exists
302 throughout the life of the structure.
303 * check memory allocations, etc.. when creating the static
304 CGI environment and when making new CGI environment variables
305 * wait until process_option_end to call unescape_uri, clean_pathname,
306 and translate_uri
307 * remove debian package information
308 * move RedHat packaging information to contrib
309 * remove tests -- they weren't usable anyway
310 * add some new hash routines, and use djb2 (a variant on a
311 hash algorithm popularized by Dan J. Bernstein)
312 * a side-effect of the new hash routines is a bugfix,
313 involving negative return values from hash routines.
314 This has been fixed.
315 * add a routine, show_hash_stats, which is called with other
316 statistical output via sigalarm
317 * remove some duplicate prototypes from config.c
318 * make simple_itoa take an unsigned int
319 * try to make NOBLOCK handling in compat.h compatible with Solaris
320 * make sure to update current_time before calling signal handlers
321 * alter primary loop to make sure that select gets called even
322 when there are requests that are not blocking, and call fdset_update
323 and process_requests (when appropriate) after signal handlers but
324 before select to make sure that blocked requests are still handled
325 by select after a sighup. (Thanks to Karl Olsen)
326 * pull select loop into select.c
327 * poll server socket once per active connection
328 * add send_r_service_unavailable and use it when appropriate
329 * state uptime in seconds at normal program termination
330 * include sys/fcntl.h if it is found by configure
331 * fix POST bug where a content-length < 0 would cause Boa to
332 consume its full share of CPU until killed
333 Bug report by Landon Curt Noll
334 * add CGIPath configuration variable
335 based upon a patch by Landon Curt Noll
336 * add function boa_atoi, which wraps atoi, but does not
337 accept negative values. Additionally, it checks to make sure
338 the converted value and the original value are the same, avoiding
339 issues like "124.3" -> "123" and "123abc" -=> "123".
340 Either a value is an int or it isn't - no middle ground.
341 * use boa_atoi to convert content-length from client.
342 * add new #define - SINGLE_POST_LIMIT_DEFAULT, which defines
343 (in bytes) the *default* single_post_limit.
344 * single_post_limit is now in bytes.
345 * when adding aliases, only "normalize" paths that start
346 with "./" - this is a departure from previous behavior
347 * add "?" to the list of characters that it is safe to leave unescaped
348 * clean up Makefile.in of no-longer-pertinent comments
349 * add send_r_bad_gateway and use it
350 * tie stderr to either cgi_log_fd or devnullfd - either way
351 make sure stderr is a valid filehandle before cgi execution
352 * cgi_env is no longer allocated, it's part of the struct now
353 * fix bug in CgiPath logic
354 * when unable to allocate memory for an environment variable, log it
355 * add clear_common_env, which de-allocates the cgi_common_env stuff
356 [NEVER USE THIS outside of a terminal signal handler!]
357 * don't be so wasteful of memory in normalize_path
358 * adapted fix for alias expansion from Brieuc Jeunhomme
359
360 ** Changes from 0.94.10.1 to 0.94.11
361 * use LIBS in Makefile.in (which propagates from autoconf)
362 * properly free memory allocated by scandir in index_dir.c
363 * rearrange some header files and includes
364 * on reads and writes, don't check for -1, check for < 0
365 * include fix by William Meadows
366 for escape.c which fixes segfaults due to improper allocation
367 * above fix by William Meadows no longer needed;
368 escape.c and escape.h rewritten by Larry Doolittle -- requires
369 at least 32 bit words, but is correct (jdn's 1st attempt was faulty)
370
371 ** Changes from 0.94.10 to 0.94.10.1
372 * Actually update the SERVER_VERSION in src/defines.h

379 * Update documentation regarding mime.types (Closes Debian #69991)
380 * Make sure documentation builds (Closes Debian #110818)
381
382 ** Changes from 0.94.8.3 to 0.94.9
383 * src/Makefile.in updated to take CFLAGS, LIBS, and LDFLAGS
384 from autoconf
385 * Update escaping rules with latest RFC
386 * unescape_uri skips fragments and also stop parsing at '?'
387 * Don't accept fd over FD_SETSIZE in request.c:get_request
388 * use backported documentation from 0.95
389 * make sure POST fd gets closed even on client cancel
390 * use backported index_dir.c from 0.95
391 * support subdirectories in ScriptAlias directories
392 * add SinglePostLimit (int, in Kilobytes) to config system
393 * check for ENOSPC on body write
394 * use environment variable TMP (or "/tmp" if not available),
395 and chdir there when boa exits.
396 * add 1-time-only hack to make a 32kB read at the end of a request
397 on POST or PUT
398 * close unused file descriptors (/dev/null in boa.c, and the
399 unused part of the pipes call in cgi.c)
400 * made Makefile.in VPATH happy
401
402 ** Changes from 0.94.8.2 to 0.94.8.3
