Make sure that the runtime dir is created by make install. PR 9233. [Jeff Trawick]
  • Fix an unusual set of ./configure arguments that could cause mod_http to be built as a DSO, which it currently doesn't support. PR 9244. [Cliff Woolley, Robin Johnson ]
  • Win32: Fix bug in apr_sendfile() that caused incorrect operation of the %X, %b and %B logformat options. PR 8253, 8996. [Bill Stoddard]
  • If content-encoding is already present, do not run deflate (PR 9222) [Kazuhisa ASADA ]

  • Removed documentation references to the no-longer-supported "make certificate" feature of mod_ssl for Apache 1.3.x. Test certificates, if truly desired, can be generated using openssl commands. PR 8724. [Cliff Woolley]
  • Remove SSLLog and SSLLogLevel directives in favor of having mod_ssl use the standard ErrorLog directives. [Justin Erenkrantz]
  • OS/390: LIBPATH no longer has to be manually uncommented in envvars to get apachectl to set up httpd properly. [Jeff Trawick]
  • mod_isapi: All mod_isapi directives, excluding ISAPICacheFile, may now be specified to the container, rather than by vhost. [William Rowe]
  • mod_isapi: Experimental support for faux async support for ISAPI modules. [William Rowe]
  • mod_isapi: Major refactoring of the code to rely on apr internals rather than MS APIs (using our own mod_isapi.h headers for ISAPI symbol definitions.) [William Rowe]
  • mod_isapi: Fixed the return string length from GetServerVariable callback, it was not including the trailing null in the consumed buffer size. This was particularly bad for Delphi 6.0 users. PR 8934 [Sebastian Hantsch ]
  • Fixed Win32 builds for Microsoft VisualStudio 7.0 (.net). [William Rowe]
  • Make apxs look in the correct directory for envvars. It was broken when sbindir != bindir. PR 8869 [Andreas Sundstrvm ]

  • Performance enhancements for mod_setenvif [Brian Pane]
  • Fix a mod_ssl build problem on OS/390. [Jeff Trawick]
  • Fixed If-Modified-Since on Win32, which would give false positives because of the sub-second resolution of file timestamps on that platform. [Cliff Woolley]
  • Reverse the hook ordering for mod_userdir and mod_alias so that Alias/ScriptAlias will override Userdir. PR 8841 [Joshua Slive]
  • Move mod_deflate out of experimental and into filters. [Justin Erenkrantz]
