  *) Register the mod_cgid daemon process for cleanup so that it is
     killed at termination if it does not die when the parent gets
     SIGTERM.  This change is to fix occasional problems where the
     process stays around.  Bugs in similar logic in mod_rewrite and
     mod_include were also fixed.  [Jeff Trawick]

  *) Fix a bug in the time handling.  Basically, we were imploding a time
     in ap_parseHTTPdate, but it had bogus data in the exploded time format.
     Namely, tm_usec and tm_gmtoff were not filled out.  ap_implode_time
     uses those two fields to adjust the time value.  Because of the HTTP
     spec, both of those values can be zero'ed out safely.  This fixes
     the bug correctly.  [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Fix a couple of place in the Windows code where the wrong error
     code was being returned. [Gregory Nicholls ]

  *) Fix POOL_DEBUG (at least for prefork mpm). [Dean Gaudet]

  *) Added the APR_EOL_STR macro for platform dependent differences in 
     logfiles and other raw text (such as all APR files).  Fixes logfiles
     not terminated with cr/lf sequences in Win32.  [William Rowe]

  *) Move all strings functions in APR to src/lib/apr/strings and create
     apr_strings.h for the prototypes. [Ryan Bloom]

  *) APR lock fixes: when using SysV sems, flock(), or fcntl(), be sure
     to repeat the syscall until we stop getting EINTR.  I noticed a
     related problem at termination (SIGTERM) on FreeBSD when using
     fcntl().  Apache 1.3 had these new loops too.  Also, make the flock() 
     implementation work properly with child init.  Previously, ap_lock()
     was essentially a no-op because all children were using different
     locks and thus nobody ever blocked.  [Jeff Trawick]

  *) The htdocs/ tree has been moved out of the CVS source tree into
     a separate area for easier development.  This has NO EFFECT on
     end-users or Apache installations.  [Ken Coar]
