     parallel threads on win32.  [William Rowe]

  *) Correct a bug in determining when we follow symlinks.  The code
     expected a stat -1 result, not an apr_status_t positive error.
     Also check if the APR_FINFO_USER fields are valid before we
     follow the link.  [William Rowe]

  *) Move initgroupgs, ap_uname2id and ap_gname2id from util.c to
     mpm_common.c.  These functions are only valid on some platforms,
     so they should not be in the main-line code. [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Remove ap_chdir_file().  This function is not thread-safe,
     and nobody is currently using it.  [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Do not try to run make depend if there are no .c files in the
     current directory, doing so makes 'make depend' fail.
     [Ryan Bloom]

   *) Update highperformance.conf to work with either prefork or
      pthreads mpms.  [Greg Ames]

  *) Stop checking to see if this is a pipelined request if we know
     for a fact that it isn't.  Basically, if r->connection->keepalive == 0.
     This keeps us from making an extra read call when serving a 1.0
     request.  [Ryan Bloom and Greg Stein]

  *) Fix the handling of variable expansion look-ahead in mod_rewrite,
     i.e. syntax like %{LA-U:REMOTE_USER}, and also fix the parsing of
     more complicated nested RewriteMap lookups. PR#7087 [Tony Finch]

  *) Fix the RFC number mentioned when complaining about a missing
     Host: header. PR#7079 [Alexey Toptygin ]

  *) Fix an endless loop in ab which occurred when ab was posting
     and the server dropped the connection unexpectedly.
     [Jeff Trawick]

  *) Fix a segfault while handling request bodies in ap_http_filter().
     This problem has been seen with mod_dav usage as well as with
     requests where the body was just being discarded.  [Jeff Trawick]

  *) Some adjustment on the handling and automatic setting (via
     hints.m4) of various compilation flags (eg: CFLAGS). Also,
