Apache 2.0 alpha 8 released! Page 4

     and writev() returned an error (or EAGAIN).  [Jeff Trawick]

  *) Get SINGLE_LISTEN_UNSERIALIZED_ACCEPT working again.  This uses the
     hints file to determine which platforms define

  *) APR: add apr_get_home_directory()  [Jeff Trawick]

  *) Initial import of 1.3-current mod_proxy. [Chuck Murcko]

  *) Not all platforms have INADDR_NONE defined by default.  Apache
     used to make this check and define INADDR_NONE if appropriate,
     but APR needs the check too, and I suspect other applications will
     as well.  APR now defines APR_INADDR_NONE, which is always a valid
     value on all platforms.

  *) Destroy the pthread mutex in lock_intra_cleanup() for PR#6824.

  *) Relax the syntax checking of Host: headers in order to support
     iDNS. PR#6635 [Tony Finch]

  *) When reading from file buckets we convert to an MMAP if it makes
     sense.  This also simplifies the default handler because the
     default handler no longer needs to try to create MMAPs.

  *) BUFF has been removed from the main server.  The BUFF code will remain
     in the code until it has been purged from the proxy module as well.

  *) Byteranges have been completely re-written to be a filter.  This
     has been tested, and I believe it is working correctly, but it could

     the output from 1.3, the only difference being that 1.3 includes
     a content-length in the response, and this does not.

  *) APR read/write functions and bucket read functions now operate
     on unsigned integers, instead of signed ones.  It doesn't make
     any sense to use signed ints, because we return the error codes,
     so if we have an error we should report 0 bytes read or written.
