Wed Sep 25 19:55:53 2002 UTC (19 years ago) by nmav
Branch: MAIN
Changes since 1.6: +2 -0 lines
Added support for multiple directory indexes. Droped support for uncompressing gziped files.

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

245
246 ** Changes from 0.94.8.3 to 0.94.9
247 * src/Makefile.in updated to take CFLAGS, LIBS, and LDFLAGS
248 from autoconf
249 * Update escaping rules with latest RFC
250 * unescape_uri skips fragments and also stop parsing at '?'
251 * Don't accept fd over FD_SETSIZE in request.c:get_request
252 * use backported documentation from 0.95
253 * make sure POST fd gets closed even on client cancel
254 * use backported index_dir.c from 0.95
255 * support subdirectories in ScriptAlias directories
256 * add SinglePostLimit (int, in Kilobytes) to config system
257 * check for ENOSPC on body write
258 * use environment variable TMP (or "/tmp" if not available),
259 and chdir there when boa exits.
260 * add 1-time-only hack to make a 32kB read at the end of a request
261 on POST or PUT
262 * close unused file descriptors (/dev/null in boa.c, and the
263 unused part of the pipes call in cgi.c)
