ASF changes:

  *) SECURITY: CVE-2023-45802: Apache HTTP Server: HTTP/2 stream
     memory not reclaimed right away on RST (cve.mitre.org)
     When a HTTP/2 stream was reset (RST frame) by a client, there
     was a time window were the request's memory resources were not
     reclaimed immediately. Instead, de-allocation was deferred to
     connection close. A client could send new requests and resets,
     keeping the connection busy and open and causing the memory
     footprint to keep on growing. On connection close, all resources
     were reclaimed, but the process might run out of memory before
     This was found by the reporter during testing of CVE-2023-44487
     (HTTP/2 Rapid Reset Exploit) with their own test client. During
     "normal" HTTP/2 use, the probability to hit this bug is very
     low. The kept memory would not become noticeable before the
     connection closes or times out.
     Users are recommended to upgrade to version 2.4.58, which fixes
     the issue.    Credits: Will Dormann of Vul Labs

  *) SECURITY: CVE-2023-43622: Apache HTTP Server: DoS in HTTP/2 with
     initial windows size 0 (cve.mitre.org)
     An attacker, opening a HTTP/2 connection with an initial window
     size of 0, was able to block handling of that connection
     indefinitely in Apache HTTP Server. This could be used to
     exhaust worker resources in the server, similar to the well
     known "slow loris" attack pattern.
     This has been fixed in version 2.4.58, so that such connection
     are terminated properly after the configured connection timeout.
     This issue affects Apache HTTP Server: from 2.4.55 through
     Users are recommended to upgrade to version 2.4.58, which fixes
     the issue.

  *) SECURITY: CVE-2023-31122: mod_macro buffer over-read
     Out-of-bounds Read vulnerability in mod_macro of Apache HTTP
     Server.This issue affects Apache HTTP Server: through 2.4.57.
     Credits: David Shoon (github/davidshoon)

  *) mod_ssl: Silence info log message "SSL Library Error: error:0A000126:
     SSL routines::unexpected eof while reading" when using
     OpenSSL 3 by setting SSL_OP_IGNORE_UNEXPECTED_EOF if  
     available. [Rainer Jung]

  *) mod_http2: improved early cleanup of streams.    [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_proxy_http2: improved error handling on connection errors while
     response is already underway.    [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_http2: fixed a bug that could lead to a crash in main connection
     output handling. This occured only when the last request on a HTTP/2
     connection had been processed and the session decided to shut down.
     This could lead to an attempt to send a final GOAWAY while the previous
     write was still in progress. See PR 66646.    [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_proxy_http2: fix `X-Forward-Host` header to carry the correct value.
     Fixes PR66752.  [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_http2: added support for bootstrapping WebSockets via HTTP/2, as
     described in RFC 8441. A new directive 'H2WebSockets on|off' has been
     added. The feature is by default not enabled.
     As also discussed in the manual, this feature should work for setups
     using "ProxyPass backend-url upgrade=websocket" without further changes.
     Special server modules for WebSockets will have to be adapted,
     most likely, as the handling if IO events is different with HTTP/2.
     HTTP/2 WebSockets are supported on platforms with native pipes. This
     excludes Windows.
     [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_rewrite: Fix a regression with both a trailing ? and [QSA].
     in OCSP stapling. PR 66672. [Frank Meier frank.meier ergon.ch, covener]

  *) mod_http2: fixed a bug in flushing pending data on an already closed
     connection that could lead to a busy loop, preventing the HTTP/2 session
     to close down successfully. Fixed PR 66624.
     [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_http2: v2.0.15 with the following fixes and improvements
     - New directive 'H2EarlyHint name value' to add headers to a response,
       picked up already when a "103 Early Hints" response is sent. 'name' and
       'value' must comply to the HTTP field restrictions.
       This directive can be repeated several times and header fields of the
       same names add. Sending a 'Link' header with 'preload' relation will
       also cause a HTTP/2 PUSH if enabled and supported by the client.
     - Fixed an issue where requests were not logged and accounted in a timely
       fashion when the connection returns to "keepalive" handling, e.g. when
       the request served was the last outstanding one.
       This led to late appearance in access logs with wrong duration times
     - Accurately report the bytes sent for a request in the '%O' Log format.
       This addresses #203, a long outstanding issue where mod_h2 has reported
       numbers over-eagerly from internal buffering and not what has actually
       been placed on the connection.
       The numbers are now the same with and without H2CopyFiles enabled.
     [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_proxy_http2: fix retry handling to not leak temporary errors.
     On detecting that that an existing connection was shutdown by the other
     side, a 503 response leaked even though the request was retried on a
     fresh connection.
     [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_rewrite: Add server directory to include path as mod_rewrite requires
     test_char.h. PR 66571 [Valeria Petrov valeria.petrov@spinetix.com

  *) mod_http2: new directive `H2ProxyRequests on|off` to enable handling
     of HTTP/2 requests in a forward proxy configuration.
     General forward proxying is enabled via `ProxyRequests`. If the
     HTTP/2 protocol is also enabled for such a server/host, this new
     directive is needed in addition.
     [Stefan Eissing]

  *) core: Updated conf/mime.types:
     - .js moved from 'application/javascript' to 'text/javascript'
     - .mjs was added as 'text/javascript'
     - add .opus ('audio/ogg')
     - add 'application/vnd.geogebra.slides'
     - add WebAssembly MIME types and extension

      Richard de Boer richard tubul.net , Dave Hodder dmh dmh.org.uk,
      Zbynek Konecny zbynek1729 gmail.com

  *) mod_proxy_http2: fixed using the wrong "bucket_alloc" from the backend
     connection when sending data on the frontend one. This caused crashes
     or infinite loops in rare situations.
  *) mod_proxy_http2: fixed a bug in retry/response handling that could lead
     to wrong status codes or HTTP messages send at the end of response bodies
     exceeding the announced content-length.
  *) mod_proxy_http2: fix retry handling to not leak temporary errors.
     On detecting that that an existing connection was shutdown by the other
     side, a 503 response leaked even though the request was retried on a
     fresh connection.
  *) mod_http2: fixed a bug that did cleanup of consumed and pending buckets in
     the wrong order when a bucket_beam was destroyed.
     [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_http2: avoid double chunked-encoding on internal redirects.
     PR 66597 [Yann Ylavic, Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_http2: Fix reporting of `Total Accesses` in server-status to not count
     HTTP/2 requests twice. Fixes PR 66801.
     [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_ssl: Fix handling of Certificate Revoked messages
     in OCSP stapling. PR 66626. gmoniker gmail.com

  *) mod_http2: fixed a bug in handling of stream timeouts.
     [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_tls: updating to rustls-ffi version 0.9.2 or higher.
     Checking in configure for proper version installed. Code
     fixes for changed clienthello member name.
     [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_md:
     - New directive `MDMatchNames all|servernames` to allow more control over how
       MDomains are matched to VirtualHosts.
     - New directive `MDChallengeDns01Version`. Setting this to `2` will provide
       the command also with the challenge value on `teardown` invocation. In version
       1, the default, only the `setup` invocation gets this parameter.
       Refs #312. Thanks to @domrim for the idea.
     - For Managed Domain in "manual" mode, the checks if all used ServerName and
       ServerAlias are part of the MDomain now reports a warning instead of an error
       (AH10040) when not all names are present.
     - MDChallengeDns01 can now be configured for individual domains.
       Using PR from Jrme Billiras (@bilhackmac) and adding test case and fixing proper working
     - Fixed a bug found by Jrme Billiras (@bilhackmac) that caused the challenge
       teardown not being invoked as it should.

  *) mod_ldap: Avoid performance overhead of APR-util rebind cache for
     OpenLDAP 2.2+.  PR 64414.  [Joe Orton]

  *) mod_http2: new directive 'H2MaxDataFrameLen n' to limit the maximum
     amount of response body bytes put into a single HTTP/2 DATA frame.
     Setting this to 0 places no limit (but the max size allowed by the
     protocol is observed).
     The module, by default, tries to use the maximum size possible, which is
     somewhat around 16KB. This sets the maximum. When less response data is
     available, smaller frames will be sent.

  *) mod_md: fixed passing of the server environment variables to programs
     started via MDMessageCmd and MDChallengeDns01 on *nix system.
     See https://github.com/icing/mod_md/issues/319.
     [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_dav: Add DavBasePath directive to configure the repository root
     path.  PR 35077.  [Joe Orton]

  *) mod_alias: Add AliasPreservePath directive to map the full
     path after the alias in a location. [Graham Leggett]

  *) mod_alias: Add RedirectRelative to allow relative redirect targets to be
     issued as-is. [Eric Covener, Graham Leggett]

  *) core: Add formats %{z} and %{strftime-format} to ErrorLogFormat, and make
     sure that if the format is configured early enough it applies to every log
     line.  PR 62161.  [Yann Ylavic]

  *) mod_deflate: Add DeflateAlterETag to control how the ETag
     is modified. The 'NoChange' parameter mimics 2.2.x behavior.
     PR 45023, PR 39727. [Eric Covener]

  *) core: Optimize send_brigade_nonblocking(). [Yann Ylavic, Christophe Jaillet]

  *) mod_status: Remove duplicate keys "BusyWorkers" and "IdleWorkers".
     Resolve inconsistency between the previous two occurrences by
     counting workers in state SERVER_GRACEFUL no longer as busy,
     but instead in a new counter "GracefulWorkers" (or on HTML
     view as "workers gracefully restarting"). Also add the graceful
     counter as a new column to the existing HTML per process table
     for async MPMs. PR 63300. [Rainer Jung]

     Some mod_proxy configurations on Apache HTTP Server versions
     2.4.0 through 2.4.55 allow a HTTP Request Smuggling attack.
     Configurations are affected when mod_proxy is enabled along with
     some form of RewriteRule or ProxyPassMatch in which a non-specific
     pattern matches some portion of the user-supplied request-target (URL)

  *) mod_proxy_hcheck: Honor worker timeout settings.  [Yann Ylavic]

  *) mod_http2: version 2.0.11 of the module, synchronizing changes
     with the gitgub version. This is a partial rewrite of how connections
     and streams are handled.
     - an APR pollset and pipes (where supported) are used to monitor
       the main connection and react to IO for request/response handling.
       This replaces the stuttered timed waits of earlier versions.
     - H2SerializeHeaders directive still exists, but has no longer an effect.
     - Clients that seemingly misbehave still get less resources allocated,
       but ongoing requests are no longer disrupted.
     - Fixed an issue since 1.15.24 that "Server" headers in proxied requests
       were overwritten instead of preserved. [PR by @daum3ns]
     - A regression in v1.15.24 was fixed that could lead to httpd child
       processes not being terminated on a graceful reload or when reaching
       MaxConnectionsPerChild. When unprocessed h2 requests were queued at
       the time, these could stall. See #212.
     - Improved information displayed in 'server-status' for H2 connections when
       Extended Status is enabled. Now one can see the last request that IO
       operations happened on and transferred IO stats are updated as well.
     - When reaching server limits, such as MaxRequestsPerChild, the HTTP/2 connection
       send a GOAWAY frame much too early on new connections, leading to invalid
       protocol state and a client failing the request. See PR65731 at
       https://bz.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=65731 .
       The module now initializes the HTTP/2 protocol correctly and allows the
       client to submit one request before the shutdown via a GOAWAY frame
       is being announced.
     - :scheme pseudo-header values, not matching the
       connection scheme, are forwarded via absolute uris to the
       http protocol processing to preserve semantics of the request.
       Checks on combinations of pseudo-headers values/absence
       have been added as described in RFC 7540. Fixes #230.
     - A bug that prevented trailers (e.g. HEADER frame at the end) to be
       generated in certain cases was fixed. See #233 where it prevented
       gRPC responses to be properly generated.
     - Request and response header values are automatically stripped of leading
       and trialing space/tab characters. This is equivalent behaviour to what
       Apache httpd's http/1.1 parser does.
       The checks for this in nghttp2 v1.50.0+ are disabled.
     - Extensive testing in production done by Alessandro Bianchi (@alexskynet)
       on the v2.0.x versions for stability. Many thanks!

    - Added support for ACME External Account Binding (EAB).
      Use the new directive `MDExternalAccountBinding` to provide the
      server with the value for key identifier and hmac as provided by
      your CA.
      While working on some servers, EAB handling is not uniform
      across CAs. First tests with a Sectigo Certificate Manager in
      demo mode are successful. But ZeroSSL, for example, seems to
      regard EAB values as a one-time-use-only thing, which makes them
      fail if you create a seconde account or retry the creation of the
      first account with the same EAB.
    - The directive 'MDCertificateAuthority' now checks if its parameter
      is a http/https url or one of a set of known names. Those are
      'LetsEncrypt', 'LetsEncrypt-Test', 'Buypass' and 'Buypass-Test'
      for now and they are not case-sensitive.
      The default of LetsEncrypt is unchanged.
    - `MDContactEmail` can now be specified inside a ``
    - Treating 401 HTTP status codes for orders like 403, since some ACME
      servers seem to prefer that for accessing oders from other accounts.
    - When retrieving certificate chains, try to read the repsonse even
      if the HTTP Content-Type is unrecognized.
    - Fixed a bug that reset the error counter of a certificate renewal
      and prevented the increasing delays in further attempts.
    - Fixed the renewal process giving up every time on an already existing
      order with some invalid domains. Now, if such are seen in a previous
      order, a new order is created for a clean start over again.

  *) SECURITY: CVE-2021-42013: Path Traversal and Remote Code
     Execution in Apache HTTP Server 2.4.49 and 2.4.50 (incomplete
     fix of CVE-2021-41773) (cve.mitre.org)
     It was found that the fix for CVE-2021-41773 in Apache HTTP
     Server 2.4.50 was insufficient.  An attacker could use a path
     traversal attack to map URLs to files outside the directories
     configured by Alias-like directives.
     If files outside of these directories are not protected by the
     usual default configuration "require all denied", these requests
     can succeed. If CGI scripts are also enabled for these aliased
     pathes, this could allow for remote code execution.
     This issue only affects Apache 2.4.49 and Apache 2.4.50 and not
     earlier versions.

  *) SECURITY: CVE-2021-41773: Path traversal and file disclosure
     vulnerability in Apache HTTP Server 2.4.49 (cve.mitre.org)
     A flaw was found in a change made to path normalization in
     Apache HTTP Server 2.4.49. An attacker could use a path
     traversal attack to map URLs to files outside the expected
     document root.
     If files outside of the document root are not protected by
     "require all denied" these requests can succeed. Additionally
     this flaw could leak the source of interpreted files like CGI
     This issue is known to be exploited in the wild.

 *) SECURITY: CVE-2021-31618 (cve.mitre.org)
     mod_http2: Fix a potential NULL pointer dereference [Ivan Zhakov]

  *) mod_proxy_wstunnel: Add ProxyWebsocketFallbackToProxyHttp to opt-out the

  *) core: Fix a regression that stripped the ETag header from 304 responses.
     PR 61820 [Ruediger Pluem, Roy T. Fielding]

  *) core: Adding SSL related inquiry functions to the server API.
     These function are always available, even when no module providing
     SSL is loaded. They provide their own "shadowing" implementation for
     the optional functions of similar name that mod_ssl and impersonators
     of mod_ssl provide.
     This enables loading of several SSL providing modules when all but
     one of them registers itself into the new hooks. Two old-style SSL
     modules will not work, as they replace the others optional functions
     with their own.
     Modules using the old-style optional functions will continue to work
     as core supplies its own versions of those.
     The following has been added so far:
     - ap_ssl_conn_is_ssl() to query if a connection is using SSL.
     - ap_ssl_var_lookup() to query SSL related variables for a
     - Hooks for 'ssl_conn_is_ssl' and 'ssl_var_lookup' where modules
       providing SSL can install their own value supplying functions.
     - ap_ssl_add_cert_files() to enable other modules like mod_md to provide
       certificate and keys for an SSL module like mod_ssl.
     - ap_ssl_add_fallback_cert_files() to enable other modules like mod_md to
       provide a fallback certificate in case no 'proper' certificate is
       available for an SSL module like mod_ssl.
     - ap_ssl_answer_challenge() to enable other modules like mod_md to
       provide a certificate as used in the RFC 8555 'tls-alpn-01' challenge
       for the ACME protocol for an SSL module like mod_ssl. The function
       and its hook provide PEM encoded data instead of file names.
     - Hooks for 'ssl_add_cert_files', 'ssl_add_fallback_cert_files' and
       'ssl_answer_challenge' where modules like mod_md can provide providers
       to the above mentioned functions.
     - These functions reside in the new 'http_ssl.h' header file. [Stefan Eissing]

  *) core/mod_ssl/mod_md: adding OCSP response provisioning as core feature. This
     allows modules to access and provide OCSP response data without being tied
     of each other. The data is exchanged in standard, portable formats (PEM encoded
     certificates and DER encoded responses), so that the actual SSL/crypto
     implementations used by the modules are independant of each other.
     Registration and retrieval happen in the context of a server (server_rec)
     which modules may use to decide if they are configured for this or not.
     The area of changes:
     1. core: defines 2 functions in include/http_ssl.h, so that modules may
        register a certificate, together with its issuer certificate for OCSP
        response provisioning and ask for current response data (DER bytes) later.
        Also, 2 hooks are defined that allow modules to implement this OCSP

     2. mod_ssl uses the new functions, in addition to what it did already, to
        register its certificates this way. If no one is interested in providing
        OCSP, it falls back to its own (if configured) stapling implementation.
     3. mod_md registers itself at the core hooks for OCSP provisioning. Depending
        on configuration, it will accept registrations of its own certificates only,
        all certificates or none.
     [Stefan Eissing]

 *) mod_md: v2.4.0 with improvements and bugfixes
     - MDPrivateKeys allows the specification of several types. Beside "RSA" plus
     optional key lengths elliptic curves can be configured. This means you can
     have multiple certificates for a Managed Domain with different key types.
     With ```MDPrivateKeys secp384r1 rsa2048``` you get one ECDSA  and one RSA
     certificate and all modern client will use the shorter ECDSA, while older
     client will get the RSA certificate.
     Many thanks to @tlhackque who pushed and helped on this.
     - Support added for MDomains consisting of a wildcard. Configuring
     ```MDomain *.host.net``` will match all virtual hosts matching that pattern
     and obtain one certificate for it (assuming you have 'dns-01' challenge
     support configured). Addresses #239.
     - Removed support for ACMEv1 servers. The only known installation used to
     be Let's Encrypt which has disabled that version more than a year ago for
     new accounts.
     - Andreas Ulm ( https://github.com/root360-AndreasUlm implemented the
     ```renewing``` call to ```MDMessageCmd``` that can deny a certificate
     renewal attempt. This is useful in clustered installations, as
     discussed in #233).
     - New event ```challenge-setup: type: domain ```, triggered when the
     challenge data for a domain has been created. This is invoked before the
     ACME server is told to check for it. The type is one of the ACME challenge
     types. This is invoked for every DNS name in a MDomain.
     - The max delay for retries has been raised to daily (this is like all
     retries jittered somewhat to avoid repeats at fixed time of day).
     - Certain error codes reported by the ACME server that indicate a problem
     with the configured data now immediately switch to daily retries. For
     example: if the ACME server rejects a contact email or a domain name,
     frequent retries will most likely not solve the problem. But daily retries
     still make sense as there might be an error at the server and un-supervised
     certificate renewal is the goal. Refs #222.
     - Test case and work around for domain names > 64 octets. Fixes #227.
     When the first DNS name of an MD is longer than 63 octets, the certificate
     request will not contain a CN field, but leave it up to the CA to choose one.
     Currently, Lets Encrypt looks for a shorter name in the SAN list given and
     fails the request if none is found. But it is really up to the CA (and what
     browsers/libs accept here) and may change over the years. That is why
     the decision is best made at the CA.
     - Retry delays now have a random +/-[0-50]% modification applied to let
     retries from several servers spread out more, should they have been
     restarted at the same time of day.
     - Fixed several places where the 'badNonce' return code from an ACME server
     was not handled correctly. The test server 'pebble' simulates this behaviour
     by default and helps nicely in verifying this behaviour. Thanks, pebble!
     - Set the default `MDActivationDelay` to 0. This was confusing to users that
     new certificates were deemed not usably before a day of delay. When clocks are
     correct, using a new certificate right away should not pose a problem.
     - When handling ACME authorization resources, the module no longer requires
     the server to return a "Location" header, as was necessary in ACMEv1.
     Fixes #216.
     - Fixed a theoretical uninitialized read when testing for JSON error responses
     from the ACME CA. Reported at  https://bz.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=64297 .
     - ACME problem reports from CAs that include parameters in the Content-Type
     header are handled correctly. (Previously, the problem text would not be
     reported and retries could exceed CA limits.)
     - Account Update transactions to V2 CAs now use the correct POST-AS-GET method.
     Previously, an empty JSON object was sent - which apparently LE accepted,
     but others reject.

     Fixes https://github.com/icing/mod_h2/issues/200 : 
     "LimitRequestFields 0" now disables the limit, as documented.
     Fixes https://github.com/icing/mod_h2/issues/201 : 
     Do not count repeated headers with same name against the field
     count limit. The are merged internally, as if sent in a single HTTP/1 line.

     (see https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/mod/mod_proxy.html ) is now used
     when checking the liveliness of a new or reused h2 connection to the backend.
     With short durations, this makes load-balancing more responsive. The module

     - Prefer MDContactEmail directive to ServerAdmin for registration. New directive
       thanks to Timothe Litt (@tlhackque).
     - protocol check for pre-configured "tls-alpn-01" challenge has been improved. It will now
       check all matching virtual hosts for protocol support. Thanks to @mkauf.
     - Corrected a check when OCSP stapling was configured for hosts
       where the responsible MDomain is not clear, by Michal Karm Babacek (@Karm).
     - Softening the restrictions where mod_md configuration directives may appear. This should
       allow for use in < If> and < Macro> sections. If all possible variations lead to the configuration
       you wanted in the first place, is another matter.
     [Michael Kaufmann < mail michael-kaufmann.ch>, Timothe Litt (@tlhackque),

     The tests pass successfully.
     [Luca Toscano, Joe Orton, Mike Rumph, and others]

  *) core: Be stricter in parsing of Transfer-Encoding headers.
     [ZeddYu < zeddyu.lu gmail.com>, Eric Covener]

  *) mod_ssl: negotiate the TLS protocol version per name based vhost
     configuration, when linked with OpenSSL-1.1.1 or later. The base vhost's
     SSLProtocol (from the first vhost declared on the IP:port) is now only
     relevant if no SSLProtocol is declared for the vhost or globally,
     otherwise the vhost or global value apply.  [Yann Ylavic]

  *) mod_cgi, mod_cgid: Fix a memory leak in some error cases with large script
     output.  PR 64096.  [Joe Orton]

  *) config: Speed up graceful restarts by using pre-hashed command table. PR 64066.
     [Giovanni Bechis < giovanni paclan.it>, Jim Jagielski]

  *) mod_systemd: New module providing integration with systemd.  [Jan Kaluza]

  *) mod_lua: Add r:headers_in_table, r:headers_out_table, r:err_headers_out_table,
     r:notes_table, r:subprocess_env_table as read-only native table alternatives
     that can be iterated over. [Eric Covener]

  *) mod_http2: Fixed rare cases where a h2 worker could deadlock the main connection. 
     [Yann Ylavic, Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_lua: Accept nil assignments to the exposed tables (r.subprocess_env, 
     r.headers_out, etc) to remove the key from the table. PR63971. 
     [Eric Covener]

  *) mod_http2: Fixed interaction with mod_reqtimeout. A loaded mod_http2 was disabling the
     ssl handshake timeouts. Also, fixed a mistake of the last version that made `H2Direct` 
     always `on`, regardless of configuration. Found and reported by
     Armin.Abfalterer@united-security-providers.ch and
     Marcial.Rion@united-security-providers.ch . 

  *) mod_http2: Multiple field length violations in the same request no longer cause
     several log entries to be written. [@mkauf]

  *) mod_ssl: OCSP does not apply to proxy mode.  PR 63679.
     [Lubos Uhliarik < luhliari redhat.com>, Yann Ylavic]

     the module from 100 to 256.  PR 62149 [< thorsten.meinl knime.com>]

  *) mod_proxy: Fix crash by resolving pool concurrency problems. PR 63503
     [Ruediger Pluem, Eric Covener]

  *) core: On Windows, fix a start-up crash if < IfFile ...> is used with a path that is not
     valid (For example, testing for a file on a flash drive that is not mounted)
     [Christophe Jaillet]

  *) mod_deflate, mod_brotli: honor "Accept-Encoding: foo;q=0" as per RFC 7231; which
     means 'foo' is "not acceptable".  PR 58158 [Chistophe Jaillet]

  *) mod_md v2.2.3: 
     - Configuring MDCAChallenges replaces any previous existing challenge configuration. It
       had been additive before which was not the intended behaviour. [@mkauf]
     - Fixing order of ACME challenges used when nothing else configured. Code now behaves as
       documented for `MDCAChallenges`. Fixes #156. Thanks again to @mkauf for finding this.
     - Fixing a potential, low memory null pointer dereference [thanks to @uhliarik].
     - Fixing an incompatibility with a change in libcurl v7.66.0 that added unwanted
       "transfer-encoding" to POST requests. This failed in directy communication with
       Let's Encrypt boulder server. Thanks to @mkauf for finding and fixing. [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_md: Adding the several new features.
     The module offers an implementation of OCSP Stapling that can replace fully or
     for a limited set of domains the existing one from mod_ssl. OCSP handling
     is part of mod_md's monitoring and message notifications. If can be used
     for sites that do not have ACME certificates.
     The url for a CTLog Monitor can be configured. It is used in the server-status
     to link to the external status page of a certicate.
     The MDMessageCmd is called with argument "installed" when a new certificate
     has been activated on server restart/reload. This allows for processing of
     the new certificate, for example to applications that require it in different
     locations or formats.

  *) SECURITY: CVE-2019-10081 (cve.mitre.org)
     mod_http2: HTTP/2 very early pushes, for example configured with "H2PushResource",
     could lead to an overwrite of memory in the pushing request's pool,
     leading to crashes. The memory copied is that of the configured push
     link header values, not data supplied by the client. [Stefan Eissing]

  *) SECURITY: CVE-2019-9517 (cve.mitre.org)
     mod_http2: a malicious client could perform a DoS attack by flooding
     a connection with requests and basically never reading responses
     on the TCP connection. Depending on h2 worker dimensioning, it was
     possible to block those with relatively few connections. [Stefan Eissing]

  *) core, mod_rewrite: Set PCRE_DOTALL by default. Revert via RegexDefaultOptions -DOTALL [Yann Ylavic]

  *) core: Remove request details from built-in error documents [Eric Covener]

  *) mod_http2: core setting "LimitRequestFieldSize" is not additionally checked on
     merged header fields, just as HTTP/1.1 does. [Stefan Eissing, Michael Kaufmann]

  *) mod_http2: fixed a bug that prevented proper stream cleanup when connection
     throttling was in place. Stream resets by clients on streams initiated by them
     are counted as possible trigger for throttling. [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_http2/mpm_event: Fixes the behaviour when a HTTP/2 connection has nothing
     more to write with streams ongoing (flow control block). The timeout waiting
     for the client to send WINODW_UPDATE was incorrectly KeepAliveTimeout and not
     Timeout as it should be. Fixes PR 63534. [Yann Ylavic, Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_proxy_balancer: Load balancer required byrequests when bytraffic chosen. PR 62372. [Jim Jagielski]

  *) mod_proxy_hcheck: Create the configuration for mod_proxy_hcheck
     when used in BalancerMember. PR 60757. [Jean-Frederic Clere]

  *) mod_proxy_hcheck: Mute extremely frequent debug message. [Yann Ylavic]

  *) mod_ssl/mod_md: reversing dependency by letting mod_ssl offer hooks for
     adding certificates and keys to a virtual host. An additional hook allows
     answering special TLS connections as used in ACME challenges.
     Adding 2 new hooks for init/get of OCSP stapling status information when
     other modules want to provide those. Falls back to own implementation with same behaviour as before.

  *) mod_md: new features
     - protocol
       - supports the ACMEv2 protocol. It is the default and will be used on the next
         certificate renewal, unless another "MDCertificateAuthority" is configured
       - ACMEv2 endpoints use the GET via empty POST way of accessing resources, see announcement by Let's Encrypt:       
     - challenges
       - new challenge method 'tls-alpn-01' implemented
       - challenge type 'tls-sni-01' has been removed as CAs do not offer this any longer
       - supports command configuration to setup/teardown 'dns-01' challenges
       - supports wildcard certificates when dns challenges are configured
     - status information and monitoring
       - a domain exposes its status at https:///.httpd/certificate-status
       - Managed Domains are now in Apache's 'server-status' page
       - A new handler 'md-status' exposes verbose status information in JSON format
     - new directives
       - "MDCertificateFile" and "MDCertificateKeyFile" to configure a
         Managed Domain that uses static files. Auto-renewal is turned off for those.
       - "MDMessageCmd" that is invoked on several events: 'renewed', 'expiring' and errored'.
       - "MDWarnWindow" directive to configure when expiration warnings shall be issued.

     reusing backend connections. PR 60330. [Yann Ylavic, Jean-Frederic Clere]

  *) mod_proxy_balancer: Fix some HTML syntax issues.  [Christophe Jaillet]

  *) When using mod_status with the Event MPM, report the number of requests
     associated with an active connection in the "ACC" field. Previously
     zero was always reported with this MPM.  PR60647. [Eric Covener]

  *) mod_http2: remove the no longer existing h2_ngn_shed.c from Cmake. [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_proxy/ssl: Proxy SSL client certificate configuration and other proxy
     SSL configurations broken inside < Proxy> context.  PR 63430.

  *) SECURITY: CVE-2019-0197 (cve.mitre.org)
     mod_http2: fixes a possible crash when HTTP/2 was enabled for a http:
     host or H2Upgrade was enabled for h2 on a https: host. An Upgrade
     request from http/1.1 to http/2 that was not the first request on a
     connection could lead to a misconfiguration and crash. Servers that
     never enabled the h2 protocol or only enabled it for https: and
     did not set "H2Upgrade on" are unaffected by this issue.
     [Stefan Eissing]

  *) SECURITY: CVE-2019-0196 (cve.mitre.org)
     mod_http2: using fuzzed network input, the http/2 request
     handling could be made to access freed memory in string
     comparision when determining the method of a request and
     thus process the request incorrectly. [Stefan Eissing]

  *) SECURITY: CVE-2019-0211 (cve.mitre.org)
     MPMs unix: Fix a local priviledge escalation vulnerability by not
     maintaining each child's listener bucket number in the scoreboard,
     preventing unprivileged code like scripts run by/on the server (e.g. via
     mod_php) from modifying it persistently to abuse the priviledged main
     process.  [Charles Fol < folcharles gmail.com >, Yann Ylavic]

  *) SECURITY: CVE-2019-0196 (cve.mitre.org)
     mod_http2: using fuzzed network input, the http/2 request

     comparision when determining the method of a request and
     thus process the request incorrectly. [Stefan Eissing]

  *) SECURITY: CVE-2019-0217 (cve.mitre.org)
     mod_auth_digest: Fix a race condition checking user credentials which
     could allow a user with valid credentials to impersonate another,
     under a threaded MPM.  PR 63124.  [Simon Kappel < simon.kappel axis.com >]

  *) SECURITY: CVE-2019-0215 (cve.mitre.org)
     mod_ssl: Fix access control bypass for per-location/per-dir client
     certificate verification in TLSv1.3.

  *) SECURITY: CVE-2019-0220 (cve.mitre.org)
     Merge consecutive slashes in URL's. Opt-out with
     `MergeSlashes OFF`. [Eric Covener]

  *) mod_proxy/ssl: Cleanup per-request SSL configuration anytime a backend
     connection is recycled/reused to avoid a possible crash with some SSLProxy
     configurations in < Location > or < Proxy > context. PR 63256. [Yann Ylavic]

  *) mod_log_config: Support %{c}h for conn-hostname, %h for useragent_host
     PR 55348

  *) mod_socache_redis: Support for Redis as socache storage provider.

  *) core: new configuration option 'MergeSlashes on|off' that controls handling of
     multiple, consecutive slash ('/') characters in the path component of the request URL.
     [Eric Covener]
  *) mod_http2: when SSL renegotiation is inhibited and a 403 ErrorDocument is
     in play, the proper HTTP/2 stream reset did not trigger with H2_ERR_HTTP_1_1_REQUIRED.
     Fixed. [Michael Kaufmann] 

  *) mod_http2: new configuration directive: `H2Padding numbits` to control 
     padding of HTTP/2 payload frames. 'numbits' is a number from 0-8,
     controlling the range of padding bytes added to a frame. The actual number
     added is chosen randomly per frame. This applies to HEADERS, DATA and PUSH_PROMISE
     frames equally. The default continues to be 0, e.g. no padding. [Stefan Eissing] 

  *) mod_http2: ripping out all the h2_req_engine internal features now that mod_proxy_http2
     has no more need for it. Optional functions are still declared but no longer implemented.
     While previous mod_proxy_http2 will work with this, it is recommeneded to run the matching
     versions of both modules. [Stefan Eissing]
  *) mod_proxy_http2: changed mod_proxy_http2 implementation and fixed several bugs which
     resolve PR63170. The proxy module does now a single h2 request on the (reused)
     connection and returns. [Stefan Eissing]
  *) mod_http2/mod_proxy_http2: proxy_http2 checks correct master connection aborted status 
     to trigger immediate shutdown of backend connections. This is now always signalled
     by mod_http2 when the the session is being released. 
     proxy_http2 now only sends a PING frame to the backend when there is not already one
     in flight. [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_proxy_http2: fixed an issue where a proxy_http2 handler entered an infinite 
     loop when encountering certain errors on the backend connection. 
     See < https://bz.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=63170 >. [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_http2: Configuration directives H2Push and H2Upgrade can now be specified per 
     Location/Directory, e.g. disabling PUSH for a specific set of resources. [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_http2: HEAD requests to some module such as mod_cgid caused the stream to
     terminate improperly and cause a HTTP/2 PROTOCOL_ERROR. 
     Fixes < https://github.com/icing/mod_h2/issues/167 >. [Michael Kaufmann]

  *) http: Fix possible empty response with mod_ratelimit for HEAD requests.
     PR 63192. [Yann Ylavic]

  *) mod_cache_socache: Avoid reallocations and be safe with outgoing data
     lifetime. [Yann Ylavic]

  *) mod_http2: enable re-use of slave connections again. Fixed slave connection
     keepalives counter. [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_reqtimeout: Allow to configure (TLS-)handshake timeouts.
     PR 61310. [Yann Ylavic]

  *) mod_proxy_wstunnel: Fix websocket proxy over UDS.
     PR 62932 < pavel dcmsys.com>

     sessions to be reused.  [Hank Ibell]

  *) SECURITY: CVE-2018-17189 (cve.mitre.org)
     mod_http2: fixes a DoS attack vector. By sending slow request bodies
     to resources not consuming them, httpd cleanup code occupies a server
     thread unnecessarily. This was changed to an immediate stream reset
     which discards all stream state and incoming data.  [Stefan Eissing]

  *) SECURITY: CVE-2019-0190 (cve.mitre.org)
     mod_ssl: Fix infinite loop triggered by a client-initiated
     renegotiation in TLSv1.2 (or earlier) with OpenSSL 1.1.1 and

  *) mod_md: incorrect behaviour when synchronizing ongoing ACME challenges
     have been fixed. [Michael Kaufmann, Stefan Eissing]
  *) mod_setenvif: We can have expressions that become true if a regex pattern

     and we should just set the value for the environment variable 
     like in the pattern case. [Ruediger Pluem]

  *) mod_session_cookie: avoid duplicate Set-Cookie header in the response.
     [Emmanuel Dreyfus < manu netbsd.org>, Luca Toscano]

  *) mod_ssl: clear *SSL errors before loading certificates and checking
     afterwards. Otherwise errors are reported when other SSL using modules
     are in play. Fixes PR 62880. [Michael Kaufmann]

  *) mod_ssl: Fix the error code returned in an error path of
     'ssl_io_filter_handshake()'. This messes-up error handling performed
     in 'ssl_io_filter_error()' [Yann Ylavic]

  *) mod_ssl: Fix $HTTPS definition for "SSLEngine optional" case, and fix
     authz provider so "Require ssl" works correctly in HTTP/2.
     PR 61519, 62654.  [Joe Orton, Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_proxy: If ProxyPassReverse is used for reverse mapping of relative
     redirects, subsequent ProxyPassReverse statements, whether they are
     relative or absolute, may fail.  PR 60408.  [Peter Haworth < pmh1wheel gmail.com>]

     and verify depth were taken from the frontend connection in case of
     connections by the proxy to the backend. PR 62769. [Ruediger Pluem]

  *) MPMs: Initialize all runtime/asynchronous objects on a dedicated pool and
     before signals handling to avoid lifetime issues on restart or shutdown.
     PR 62658. [Yann Ylavic]

  *) mod_ssl: Add support for OpenSSL 1.1.1 and TLSv1.3.  TLSv1.3 has
     behavioural changes compared to v1.2 and earlier; client and
     configuration changes should be expected.  SSLCipherSuite is
     enhanced for TLSv1.3 ciphers, but applies at vhost level only.
     [Stefan Eissing, Yann Ylavic, Ruediger Pluem, Joe Orton]

  *) mod_auth_basic: Be less tolerant when parsing the credencial. Only spaces

    This is done by deprecating the use of the 'client' field and using
    the new 'client64' field in worker_score.

  *) mod_dav: Fix a potential cause of unbounded memory usage or incorrect
     behavior in a routine that sends < DAV:response >'s to the output filters.
     [Evgeny Kotkov]

  *) mod_http2: new directive 'H2PushResource' to enable early pushes before 
     processing of the main request starts. Resources are announced to the 
     client in Link headers on a 103 early hint response. 
     All responses with status code <400 are inspected for Link header and
     trigger pushes accordingly. 304 still does prevent pushes.
     'H2PushResource' can mark resources as 'critical' which gives them higher
     priority than the main resource. This leads to preferred scheduling for
     processing and, when content is available, will send it first. 'critical'
     is also recognized on Link headers. [Stefan Eissing]
  *) mod_proxy_http2: uris in Link headers are now mapped back to a suitable
     local url when available. Relative uris with an absolute path are mapped
     as well. This makes reverse proxy mapping available for resources
     announced in this header. 
     With 103 interim responses being forwarded to the main client connection,
     this effectively allows early pushing of resources by a reverse proxied
     backend server. [Stefan Eissing]
  *) mod_proxy_http2: adding support for newly proposed 103 status code.
     [Stefan Eissing]
  *) mpm_unix: Apache fails to start if previously crashed then restarted with
     the same PID (e.g. in container).  PR 60261.
     [Val < valentin.bremond gmail.com >, Yann Ylavic]

  *) mod_http2: unannounced and multiple interim responses (status code < 200)
     are parsed and forwarded to client until a final response arrives.
     [Stefan Eissing]
  *) mod_proxy_http2: improved robustness when main connection is closed early
     by resetting all ongoing streams against the backend.
     [Stefan Eissing]
  *) mod_http2: allocators from slave connections are released earlier,
     resulting in less overall memory use on busy, long lived connections.
     [Stefan Eissing]
  *) mod_remoteip: Pick up where we left off during a subrequest rather
     than running with the modified XFF but original TCP address.
     PR 49839/PR 60251

  *) http: Respond with "408 Request Timeout" when a timeout occurs while
     reading the request body.  [Yann Ylavic]

  *) mod_http2: connection shutdown revisited: corrected edge cases on
     shutting down ongoing streams, changed log warnings to be less noisy
     when waiting on long running tasks. [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_http2: changed all AP_DEBUG_ASSERT to ap_assert to have them 
     available also in normal deployments. [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_http2/mod_proxy_http2: 100-continue handling now properly implemented
     up to the backend. Reused HTTP/2 proxy connections with more than a second
     not used will block request bodies until a PING answer is received.
     Requests headers are not delayed by this, since they are repeatable in
     case of failure. This greatly increases robustness, especially with
     busy server and/or low keepalive connections. [Stefan Eissing]
  *) mod_proxy_http2: fixed duplicate symbols with mod_http2.
     [Stefan Eissing]
  *) mod_http2: rewrite of how responses and trailers are transferred between
     master and slave connection. Reduction of internal states for tasks
     and streams, stability. Heuristic id generation for slave connections
     to better keep promise of connection ids unique at given point int time.
     Fix for mod_cgid interop in high load situtations. 
     Fix for handling of incoming trailers when no request body is sent.
     [Stefan Eissing]
  *) mod_http2: fix suspended handling for streams. Output could become
     blocked in rare cases. [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mpm_winnt: Prevent a denial of service when the 'data' AcceptFilter is in
     use by replacing it with the 'connect' filter. PR 59970. [Jacob Champion]

  *) mod_cgid: Resolve a case where a short CGI response causes a subsequent
     CGI to be killed prematurely, resulting in a truncated subsequent
     response. [Eric Covener]

  *) mod_proxy_hcheck: Set health check URI and expression correctly for health
     check worker. PR 60038 [zdeno < zdeno scnet.sk >]

  *) mod_http2: if configured with nghttp2 1.14.0 and onward, invalid request
     headers will immediately reset the stream with a PROTOCOL error. Feature
     logged by module on startup as 'INVHD' in info message.
     [Stefan Eissing]
  *) mod_http2: fixed handling of stream buffers during shutdown.
     [Stefan Eissing]
  *) mod_reqtimeout: Fix body timeout disabling for CONNECT requests to avoid
     triggering mod_proxy_connect's AH01018 once the tunnel is established.
     [Yann Ylavic]

  *) ab: Set the Server Name Indication (SNI) extension on outgoing TLS
     connections (unless -I is specified), according to the Host header (if
     any) or the requested URL's hostname otherwise.  [Yann Ylavic]

  *) mod_proxy_fcgi: avoid loops when ProxyErrorOverride is enabled
     and the error documents are proxied. PR 55415. [Luca Toscano]

  *) mod_proxy_fcgi: read the whole FCGI response even when the content
     has not been modified (HTTP 304) or in case of a precondition failure
     (HTTP 412) to avoid subsequent bogus reads and confusing
     error messages logged. [Luca Toscano]

  *) mod_http2: h2 status resource follows latest draft, see

  *) mod_include: Fix a potential memory misuse while evaluating expressions.
     PR59844. [Eric Covener]

  *) mod_http2: new H2CopyFiles directive that changes treatment of file
     handles in responses. Necessary in order to fix broken lifetime handling
     in modules such as mod_wsgi.
  *) mod_http2: removing timeouts on master connection while requests are
     being processed. Requests may timeout, but the master only times out when
     no more requests are active. [Stefan Eissing]

     [Stefan Eissing] 
  *) mod_ssl: Correct the interaction between SSLProxyCheckPeerCN and newer
     SSLProxyCheckPeerName directives since release 2.4.5, such that disabling
     either disables both, and that enabling either triggers the new, more
     comprehensive SSLProxyCheckPeerName behavior. Only a single configuration
     remains to enable the legacy behavior, which is to explicitly disable
     SSLProxyCheckPeerName, and enable SSLProxyCheckPeerCN. [William Rowe]

  *) mod_include: add the < !--#comment ... > syntax in order to include comments

     Requests from the same HTTP/2 frontend connection against the same backend
     are aggregated on a single connection.
     [Stefan Eissing]
  *) mod_http2: slave connections have conn_rec->aborted flag set when a stream
     has been reset by the client. [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_http2: merge of some 2.4.x adaptions re filters on slave connections.
     Small fixes in bucket beams when forwarding file buckets. Output handling
     on master connection uses less FLUSH and passes automatically when more
     than half of H2StreamMaxMemSize bytes have accumulated.
     Workaround for http: when forwarding partial file buckets to keep the
     output filter from closing these too early. [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_http2: elimination of fixed master connection buffer for TLS 
     connections. New scratch bucket handling optimized for TLS write sizes. 
     File bucket data read directly into scratch buffers, avoiding one
     copy. Non-TLS connections continue to pass buckets unchanged to the core
     filters to allow sendfile() usage. [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_http2/mod_proxy_http2: h2_request.c is no longer shared between these

     to be displayed on the status page. PR 59333. [Yann Ylavic, William Rowe]

  *) mod_http2: fixed a bug that caused mod_proxy_http2 to be called for window

     on early connection/stream close that lets ongoing requests safely drain
     their input filters.
     [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_http2: scoreboard updates that summarize the h2 session (and replace
     the last request information) will only happen when the session is idle or 
     in shutdown/done phase. [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_http2: new "bucket beam" technology to transport buckets across
     threads without buffer copy. Delaying response start until flush or
     enough body data has been accumulated. Overall significantly smaller
     memory footprint. [Stefan Eissing]

     authz_host, access_compat, custom logging, ssl and REMOTE_HOST variables.
     PR55348  [William Rowe]

  *) mod_http2: fixed possible read after free when streams were cancelled early
     by the client. [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_http2: fixed possible deadlock during connection shutdown. Thanks to 
     @FrankStolle for reporting and getting the necessary data.
     [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_http2: fixed apr_uint64_t formatting in a log statement to user proper 
     APR def, thanks to @Sp1l.

  *) mod_http2: number of worker threads allowed to a connection is adjusting 
     dynamically. Starting with 4, the number is doubled when streams can be 
     served without block on http/2 connection flow. The number is halfed, when
     the server has to wait on client flow control grants. 
     This can happen with a maximum frequency of 5 times per second. 
     When a connection occupies too many workers, repeatable requests 
     (GET/HEAD/OPTIONS) are cancelled and placed back in the queue. Should that 
     not suffice and a stream is busy longer than the server timeout, the 
     connection will be aborted with error code ENHANCE_YOUR_CALM.
     This does *not* limit the number of streams a client may open, rather the
     number of server threads a connection might use.
     [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_http2: allowing link header to specify multiple "rel" values, 
     space-separated inside a quoted string. Prohibiting push when Link 
     parameter "nopush" is present.
     [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_http2: reworked connection state handling. Idle connections accept a
     GOAWAY from the client without further reply. Otherwise the
     module makes a best effort to send one last GOAWAY to the client.

  *) mod_http2: the values from standard directives Timeout and KeepAliveTimeout
     properly are applied to http/2 connections.
     [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_http2: idle connections are returned to async mpms. new hook
     "pre_close_connection" used to send GOAWAY frame when not already done.

     pushed resources are kept. See directive H2PushDiarySize for managing this.
     Push diaries can be initialized by clients via the "Cache-Digest" request
     header. This carries a base64url encoded. compressed Golomb set as described
     in https://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-kazuho-h2-cache-digest/
     Introduced a status handler for HTTP/2 connections, giving various counters
     and statistics about the current connection, plus its cache digest value

     [Stefan Eissing]

  *) core: new hook "pre_close_connection" which is run before the lingering
     close of connections is started. This gives protocol handlers one last
     chance to use a connection before it goes down.
     [Stefan Eissing]

  *) mod_status/scoreboard: showing connection protocol in new column, new 
     ap_update_child_status methods for updating server/description. mod_ssl
     sets vhost negotiated by servername directly.

  *) mod_http2: new directive 'H2Push' to en-/disable HTTP/2 server
     pushes a server/virtual host. Pushes are initiated by the presence
     of 'Link:' headers with relation 'preload' on a response. [Stefan Eissing]

     abort. Separate parent pool for all workers. worker threads are joined
     on planned worker shutdown. [Yann Ylavic, Stefan Eissing]
  *) mod_ssl: when receiving requests for other virtual hosts than the handshake
     server, the SSL parameters are checked for equality. With equal 
     configuration, requests are passed for processing. Any change will trigger
     the old behaviour of "421 Misdirected Request".
     SSL now remembers the cipher suite that was used for the last handshake.
     This is compared against for any vhost/directory cipher specification. 
     Detailed examination of renegotiation is only done when these do not

     PR57204 [Edward Lu < Chaosed0 gmail.com>]

  *) SECURITY: CVE-2013-5704 (cve.mitre.org)
     core: HTTP trailers could be used to replace HTTP headers
     late during request processing, potentially undoing or
     otherwise confusing modules that examined or modified
     request headers earlier.  Adds "MergeTrailers" directive to restore
     legacy behavior.  [Edward Lu, Yann Ylavic, Joe Orton, Eric Covener]

  *) mod_ssl: New directive SSLSessionTickets (On|Off).
     The directive controls the use of TLS session tickets (RFC 5077),
     default value is "On" (unchanged behavior).
     Session ticket creation uses a random key created during web
     server startup and recreated during restarts. No other key
     recreation mechanism is available currently. Therefore using session
     tickets without restarting the web server with an appropriate frequency
     (e.g. daily) compromises perfect forward secrecy. [Rainer Jung]

     how PATH_INFO is passed to FastCGI backends by adding significance to
     the value of proxy-fcgi-pathinfo. PR 55329. [Eric Covener]
