Changes with Apache 2.4.7

  *) APR 1.5.0 or later is now required for the event MPM.
 
  *) slotmem_shm: Error detection. [Jim Jagielski]

  *) event: Use skiplist data structure. [Jim Jagielski]

  *) mpm_unix: Add ap_mpm_podx_* implementation to avoid code duplication
     and align w/ trunk. [Jim Jagielski]

  *) Fix potential rejection of valid MaxMemFree and ThreadStackSize
     directives.  [Mike Rumph <mike.rumph oracle.com>]

     An individual envvar with an encoded length of more than 16K will be

  *) mod_proxy_fcgi: Handle reading protocol data that is split between
     packets.  [Jeff Trawick]

  *) mod_ssl: Improve handling of ephemeral DH and ECDH keys by
     allowing custom parameters to be configured via SSLCertificateFile,
     and by adding standardized DH parameters for 1024/2048/3072/4096 bits.
     Unless custom parameters are configured, the standardized parameters
     are applied based on the certificate's RSA/DSA key size. [Kaspar Brand]

  *) mod_ssl, configure: Require OpenSSL 0.9.8a or later. [Kaspar Brand]

  *) mod_ssl: drop support for export-grade ciphers with ephemeral RSA
     keys, and unconditionally disable aNULL, eNULL and EXP ciphers
     (not overridable via SSLCipherSuite). [Kaspar Brand]

  *) Add experimental cmake-based build system for Windows.  [Jeff Trawick,
     Tom Donovan]

  *) event MPM: Fix possible crashes (third party modules accessing c->sbh)
     or occasional missed mod_status updates for some keepalive requests
     under load. [Eric Covener]

     SessionHeader directive, remove the value from the response. PR 55279.
     [Graham Leggett]

  *) mod_headers: Allow for format specifiers in the substitution string
     when using Header edit. [Daniel Ruggeri]

  *) mod_dav: dav_resource->uri is treated as unencoded. This was an
     unnecessary ABI changed introduced in 2.4.6. PR 55397.

  *) mod_dav: Don't require lock tokens for COPY source. PR 55306.

  *) core: Don't truncate output when sending is interrupted by a signal,

  *) WinNT MPM: Exit the child if the parent process crashes or is terminated.
     [Oracle Corporation]

  *) Windows: Correct failure to discard stderr in some error log
     configurations.  (Error message AH00093)  [Jeff Trawick]

  *) mod_ldap: When looking up sub-groups, use an implicit objectClass=*
     instead of an explicit cn=* filter. [David Hawes <dhawes vt.edu>]

  *) ab: Add wait time, fix processing time, and output write errors only if
     they occured. [Christophe Jaillet]

  *) worker MPM: Don't forcibly kill worker threads if the child process is
     exiting gracefully.  [Oracle Corporation]

  *) core: apachectl -S prints wildcard name-based virtual hosts twice.
     PR54948 [Eric Covener]

  *) mod_auth_basic: Add AuthBasicUseDigestAlgorithm directive to
     allow migration of passwords from digest to basic authentication.
     [Chris Darroch]

  *) ab: Add a new -l parameter in order not to check the length of the responses.
     This can be usefull with dynamic pages.
     PR9945, PR27888, PR42040 [<ccikrs1 cranbrook edu>]
     
  *) Suppress formatting of startup messages written to the console when
     ErrorLogFormat is used.  [Jeff Trawick]

  *) mod_auth_digest: Be more specific when the realm mismatches because the
     realm has not been specified. [Graham Leggett]

  *) mod_proxy: Add a note in the balancer manager stating whether changes

     PR54015 [Christophe Jaillet]

  *) mod_deflate: Improve error detection when decompressing request bodies
     with trailing garbage: handle case where trailing bytes are in
     the same bucket. [Rainer Jung]

  *) mod_authz_groupfile, mod_authz_user: Reduce severity of AH01671 and AH01663
     from ERROR to DEBUG, since these modules do not know what mod_authz_core
     is doing with their AUTHZ_DENIED return value. [Eric Covener]

  *) mod_ldap: add TRACE5 for LDAP retries. [Eric Covener]

  *) mod_ldap: retry on an LDAP timeout during authn. [Eric Covener]

  *) mod_ldap: Change "LDAPReferrals off" to actually set the underlying LDAP
     SDK option to OFF, and introduce "LDAPReferrals default" to take the SDK
     default, sans rebind authentication callback.
     [Jan Kaluza <kaluze AT redhat.com>]

  *) core: Log a message at TRACE1 when the client aborts a connection.
     [Eric Covener]

       - Save a few cycles

  *) mod_filter: Add "change=no" as a proto-flag to FilterProtocol
     to remove a providers initial flags set at registration time.
     [Eric Covener]

  *) core, mod_ssl: Enable the ability for a module to reverse the sense of

     [Graham Leggett]

  *) Makefile.win: Install proper pcre DLL file during debug build install.
     PR 55235.  [Ben Reser <ben reser org>]

     with old connections in TIME_WAIT.  [Jeff Trawick]
