Changes with Apache 2.0.12 (not released)

  *) Modify mod_file_cache to save pre-formatted strings for
     content-length and last-modified headers for performance.
     [Mike Abbot ]

  *) Namespace protect IOBUFSIZ since it is exposed in the API.
     [Jon Travis ]

  *) Use "Basic" authentication instead of "basic" in ab, as the spec
     says we should.  [Andre Breiler ]

  *) Fix a seg fault in mod_userdir.c.  We used to use the pw structure
     without ever filling it out.  This fixes PR 7271.
     [Taketo Kabe  and
      Cliff Woolley ]

  *) Add a couple of GCC attribute tags to printf style functions.
     [Jon Travis ]

  *) Add the correct language tag for interoperation with the Taiwanese
     versions of MSIE and Netscape. [Clive Lin ] PR#7142

  *) Migrate the perchild MPM to use the new apr signal child, and
     APR thread functions.  [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Close one copy of the CGI's stdout before creating the new process.
     The CGI will still have stdout, because we have already dup'ed it.
     This keeps Apache from waiting forever to send the results of a CGI
     process that has forked a long-lived child process.
     [Taketo Kabe ]

  *) Remove the rest of the pthreads functions from the threaded MPM.
     This requires the APR support for a signal thread that was just
     added.  [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Make mod_dir use a fixup for sending a redirect to the browser.
     Before this, we were using a handler, which doesn't make much
     sense, because the handler wasn't generating any data, it would
     either return a redirect error code, or DECLINED.  This fits the
     current hooks better.  [Ryan Morgan ]

  *) Make the threaded MPM use APR threads instead of pthreads.
     [Ryan Bloom]
