Apache 2.0alpha5 Released Page 7
*) Some syscall reduction in APR on unix -- don't seek when setting up an mmap; and don't fcntl() more than once per socket. [Dean Gaudet] *) When mod_cgid is started as root, the cgi daemon now switches to the configured User/Group (like other httpd processes) instead of continuing as root. [Jeff Trawick] *) The prefork MPM now uses an APR lock for the accept() mutex. It has not been getting a lock at all recently. httpd -V now displays APR's selection of the lock mechanism instead of the symbols previously respected by prefork. [Jeff Trawick] *) Change the mmap() feature test to check only for existence. The previous check required features not used by Apache. [Greg Ames] *) Fix a couple of bugs in mod_cgid: The cgi arguments were sometimes mangled. The len parm to accept() was not initialized, leading sometimes to an endless loop of failed accept() calls on OS/390 and anywhere else that failed the call if the len was negative. Use
for struct sockaddr_un instead of declaring it ourselves to fix a compilation problem on Solaris. [Jeff Trawick] *) Add Resource limiting code back into Apache 2.0. [Ryan Bloom] *) Fix zombie process problem with mod_cgi. [Jeff Trawick] *) Port mod_mmap_static to 2.0. Make it go faster. [Greg Ames] *) Fix storage overlay when loading dsos. Symptom: Apache dies at initialization if ALLOC_DEBUG is defined; no known symptom otherwise. [Jeff Trawick] *) Fix typo in configure script when checking for mod_so. bash doesn't seem to have a problem but /bin/sh on Solaris does. Symptom: "./configure: test: unknown operator ==" [Jeff Trawick] *) Rebind the Win32 NT and 9x services control into the MPM. All console, WinNT SCM and Win9x pseudo-service control code is now wrapped within the WinNT MPM. [William Rowe]
*) Make a copy of getenv("PATH") before storing for later use. Some getenv() implementations use the same storage for successive calls. CGIs on OS/390 had a bad PATH due to this. [Jeff Trawick] *) Server Tokens work in 2.0 again. This also propogates the change to allow just the product name in the server string using PRODUCT_ONLY. [Ryan Bloom]
