Apache HTTP Server 2.4.12 Released

The Apache Software Foundation and the Apache HTTP Server Project are pleased to announce the release of version 2.4.12 of the Apache HTTP Server ("Apache"). This version of Apache is our latest GA release of the new generation 2.4.x branch of Apache HTTPD and represents fifteen years of innovation by the project, and is recommended over all previous releases. This release of Apache is principally a security, feature and bug fix release. NOTE: there was no release of 2.4.11.
•CVE-2014-3583 mod_proxy_fcgi: Fix a potential crash due to buffer over-read, with response headers' size above 8K.
•CVE-2014-3581 mod_cache: Avoid a crash when Content-Type has an empty value. PR 56924.
•CVE-2014-8109 mod_lua: Fix handling of the Require line when a LuaAuthzProvider is used in multiple Require directives with different arguments. PR57204.
•CVE-2013-5704 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.

Also in this release are some exciting new features including:
•Proxy FGI and websockets improvements
•Proxy capability via handler
•Finer control over scoping of RewriteRules
•Unix Domain Socket (UDS) support for mod_proxy backends.
•Support for larger shared memory sizes for mod_socache_shmcb
•mod_lua and mod_ssl enhancements
•Support named groups and backreferences within the LocationMatch, DirectoryMatch, FilesMatch and ProxyMatch directives.

We consider this release to be the best version of Apache available, and encourage users of all prior versions to upgrade.
