Apache 2.0 alpha 9 Released Page 3

     responsible for processing the tag and handing the remaining data back
     to mod_include for further processing.
     [Paul J. Reder ]

  *) Get rid of ap_new_apr_connection().  ap_new_connection() now has
     fewer parameters: the local and remote socket addresses were removed
     from the parameter list because all required information is available
     via the APR socket.  [Jeff Trawick]

  *) Distribution directory structure reorganized to reflect a
     normal source distribution with external install targets.
     [Roy Fielding]

  *) The MPMs that need multiple segments of shared memory now create
     two apr_shmem_t variables, one for each shared memory allocation.
     the problem is that we can't determine how much memory will be required
     for shared memory allocations once we try to allocate more than one
     variable.  The MM code automatically aligns the shared memory allocations,
     so we end up needing to pad the amount of shared memory we want based
     on how many variables will be allocated out of the shared memory segment.
     It is just easier to create a second apr_shmem_t variable, and two
     shmem memory blocks.
     [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Cleanup the export list a bit.  This creates a single unified list of
     functions exported by APR.  The export list is generated at configure
     time, and that list is then used to generate the exports.c file.
     Because of the way the export list is generated, we only export those
     functions that are valid on the platform we are building on.
     [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Enable logging the cookie with mod_log_config
     [Sander van Zoest ]

  *) Fix a segfault in mod_info when it reaches the end of the configuration.
     [Jeff Trawick]

  *) Added lib/aputil/ as a placeholder for utility functions which are not
     specific to the Apache HTTP Server (but do not make sense with APR).
     The first utility is "apu_dbm": a set of functions to work with DBM

     files. This first version can be compiled for SDBM or GDBM databases.
     [Greg Stein]

  *) Complete re-write of mod_include.  This makes mod_include a filter that
     uses buckets directly.  This has now served the FAQ correctly.
     [Paul Reder ]

  *) Allow modules to specify the first filter in a sub_request when
     making the sub_request.  This keeps modules from having to change the
     output_filter immediately after creating the sub-request, and therefore
     skip the sub_req_output_filter.  [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Update ab to accept URLs with IPv6 literal address strings (in the
     format described in RFC 2732), and to build Host header fields in
     the same format.  This allows IPv6 literal address strings to be
     used with ab.  This support has been tested against Apache 1.3 with
     the KAME patch, but Apache 2.0 does not yet work with this format
     of the Host header field.  [Jeff Trawick]

  *) Accomodate an out-of-space condition in the piped logs and the
     rotatelogs.c code, and no longer churn log processes for this
     condition.  [Victor J. Orlikowski]

  *) Add support for partial writes with apr_sendfile() to
     [Greg Ames]
