  *) Get mod_tls to the point where it actually appears to work in all cases.
     [Ben Laurie]

  *) implement --enable-modules and --enable-mods-shared for "all" and
     "most".  [Greg Stein]

  *) Move the threaded MPM to use APR locks instead of pthread locks.
     [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Rename mpmt_pthread to threaded.  This is more in line with the
     fact that mpmt_pthread shouldn't be using pthreads directly, and
     it is a smaller name that doesn't tie into anything.
     [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Rename the module structures so that the exported symbol matches
     the file name, and it is easier to automate the installation
     process (generating LoadModule directives from the module filenames).
     [Martin Kraemer]

  *) Remove the coalesce filter.  With the ap_f* functions, this filter
     is no longer needed. [Ryan Bloom]

Changes with Apache 2.0.11 (not released)

  *) Remove the dexter MPM.  Perchild is the same basic idea, but it has the
     added feature of allowing a uid/gid per child process.  If no
     uid/gid is specified, then Perchild behaves exactly like dexter.
     [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Get perchild building again. [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Don't disable threads just because we are using the prefork MPM.
     If somebody wants to compile without threads, they must now add
     --disable-threads to the configure command line.  [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Begin to move the calls to update_child_status into common code, so
     that each individual MPM does not need to update the scoreboard itself.
     [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Allow mod_tls to compile under Unix boxes where openssl has been
     installed to the system include files.
     [Gomez Henri ]

  *) Cleanup the mod_tls configure process.  This should remove any need
     to hand-edit any files.  We require OpenSSL 0.9.6 or later, but
     configure doesn't check that yet.  [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Add a very early prototype of SSL support (in mod_tls.c). It is
