     modules/.  Shared libraries should be installed in libraries/, but
     we don't have any of those on Unix yet.  All install directories
     are modifyable at configure time. [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Install all header files in the same directory on Unix. [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Get the functions in server/linked into the server, regardless of
     which modules linked into the server.  This uses the same hack
     for Apache that we use for APR and apr-util to ensure all of the
     necessary functions are linked.  As a part of thise, the CHARSET_EBCDIC
     was renamed to AP_CHARSET_EBCDIC for namespace protection, and to make
     the scripts a bit easier.
     [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Rework the RFC1413 handling to make it thread-safe, use a timeout
     on the query, and remove IPv4 dependencies.  [Jeff Trawick]

  *) Get all of the auth modules to the point that they will install and
     be loadable into the server.  Our new build/install mechanism expects
     that all modules will have a common name format.  The auth modules
     didn't use that format, so we didn't install them properly.
     [Ryan Bloom]

  *) API routines ap_pgethostbyname() and ap_pduphostent() are no longer
     available.  Use apr_getaddrinfo() instead.  [Jeff Trawick]

  *) Get "NameVirtualHost *" working in 2.0.  [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Return HTTP_RANGE_NOT_SATISFIABLE if the every range requested starts
     after the end of the response. [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Get byterange requests working with responses that do not have a
     content-length.  Because of the way byterange requests work, we have to
     have all of the data before we can actually do the byterange, so we
     can compute the content-length in the byterange filter.
     [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Get exe CGI's working again on Windows.
     [Allan Edwards]

  *) Get mod_cgid and mod_rewrite to work as DSOs by changing the way
     they keep track of whether or not their  post config hook has been

     called before.  Instead of a static variable (which is replaced when
     the DSO is loaded a second time), use userdata in the process pool.
     [Jeff Trawick]
