Revision 1.49.2.13 - (hide annotations)
Thu Jan 9 14:16:32 2003 UTC (18 years, 6 months ago) by nmav
Branch: hydra_0_1_0_patches
Changes since 1.49.2.12: +4 -0 lines
Added defaultCharset configuration directive, and the ability to send the default charset in the content type field.

1 nmav 1.49.2.13 ** Changes from 0.1.2 to 0.1.3 -
2     * Added DefaultCharset configuration directive. The default
3     * character set given, will be appended to all text mime types.
4    
5 nmav 1.49.2.10 ** Changes from 0.1.1 to 0.1.2 - 08/01/2003
6 nmav 1.49.2.4 * Allow running the server as root, if explicitly stated in
7 nmav 1.49.2.12 configuration file. Patch by James Harr <james@grickle.org>
8 nmav 1.49.2.5 * Better pthreads detection.
9 nmav 1.49.2.6 * Outputs to error log if non executable CGIs are found.
10 nmav 1.49.2.7 * Does not close HTTP/1.1 connections by default.
11 nmav 1.49.2.9 * The current behavour is to demand the Host header in HTTP/1.1
12     requests.
13     * Added support for CGIAction CGIs. There are just like CGIs
14 nmav 1.49.2.8 but they are not executed. They are parsed using a given program.
15 nmav 1.49.2.11 * Added init script for redhat in contrib/redhat/rc.hydra,
16     contributed by <voidnull@qnet.pl>.
17 nmav 1.49.2.4
18 nmav 1.49.2.3 ** Changes from 0.1.0 to 0.1.1 - 17/12/2002
19 nmav 1.49.2.2 * Corrected bug in Keep-Alive mode when SSL or TLS was enabled.
20     * Fixed unexpected timeout in first connection on an idle server.
21 nmav 1.49.2.1
22 nmav 1.49 ** Changes from 0.0.10 to 0.1.0 - 16/11/2002
23     * No changes. This is the final release by me --Nikos
24    
25 nmav 1.48 ** Changes from 0.0.9 to 0.0.10 - 08/11/2002
26 nmav 1.47 * Corrected bug in error logging.
27     * Use the TMPDIR environment variable instead of TMP to get
28     the temporary directory.
29    
30 nmav 1.46 ** Changes from 0.0.8 to 0.0.9 - 27/10/2002
31 nmav 1.42 * Long offsets are not used by default.
32     * Use of pipes instead of temporary files, if the post data sent
33     are less than PIPE_BUF.
34 nmav 1.44 * More consistent logging. The server's hostname or "unknown"
35 nmav 1.43 are prepended to the log message.
36 nmav 1.44 * Corrected redirection/aliases behaviour, to match the documented one.
37 nmav 1.45 * SSLParamsRefresh was renamed to MaintenanceInterval and is more
38     generic, since it includes some server cleanups.
39     * Added file access control lists per virtual host. Based on patch for
40     Boa by Peter Korsgaard <jacmet@sunsite.dk>
41 nmav 1.46 * Added the ability to disable HIC threads by using 0 in the
42     HICThreads configuration directive.
43     * Hydra now uses poll by default. Select is available using the --with-select
44     configure option.
45 nmav 1.42
46 nmav 1.41 ** Changes from 0.0.7 to 0.0.8 - 25/10/2002
47 nmav 1.36 * Better pthread detection.
48 nmav 1.40 * Better detection of dlopen call.
49 nmav 1.37 * Some changes to compile in gcc 2.95
50 nmav 1.40 * Added support for FreeBSD's sendfile (untested).
51 nmav 1.38 [Ported from Boa 0.94.14rc1]
52     * add new state, IOSHUFFLE, which utilizes sendfile (or
53     emulates it using the request's buffer, otherwise)
54     * make the default socket size 32K. The client_stream_size stays constant
55     at 8K, and the new 'buffer' size is 4K
56     Note also that the new code uses the "default" socket buffer size
57     it obtains with the first accept()ed socket.
58     * make default behavior be to leave stderr alone, but tie it
59     to cgilog otherwise
60 nmav 1.40 * add [optional, Linux-only] check for sendfile system call
61 nmav 1.38 * use --disable-sendfile to disable sendfile support
62     sendfile support for files > 100K is default, now.
63     It's significantly faster and easier than the alternative
64     * umask ~0770 before exec
65     * tie stdout to the access_log, unless there is no access_log,
66     in which case tie it to /dev/null
67     * use sensible defaults for umask (077) and (027 for CGI)
68     * add and document new parameters (CGILog and CGIumask)
69     * vast improvements to the cgi-test.cgi program, by Jon Nelson
70     and Landon Curt Noll.
71     * next 3 items by Don Mahurin (patches modified somewhat):
72     * pidfile patch
73     * default mime_types patch
74     * NCSA environment environment variables wrapped in
75     #ifdef USE_NCSA_CGI_ENV
76     * fix some escaping issues with the directory indexer
77     (Ulf Harnhammar)
78     * backport poll support from 0.95
79 nmav 1.36
80 nmav 1.35 ** Changes from 0.0.6 to 0.0.7 - 10/10/2002
81 nmav 1.26 * Added support for large files in 32 bit systems.
82 nmav 1.27 * Added support for SSL_* variables in CGIs.
83 nmav 1.28 * Added options in configuration file, to request and verify
84     a client certificate.
85 nmav 1.34 * The headers of HIC-CGIs are now parsed by the server.
86 nmav 1.33 * Corrected behavour in SIGHUP signal handling, to reread
87 nmav 1.29 the SSL related variables.
88 nmav 1.33 * Children and HIC threads are now killed using a signal, to avoid
89     unexpected errors, and memory leaks.
90 nmav 1.26
91 nmav 1.24 ** Changes from 0.0.5 to 0.0.6 - 03/10/2002
92 nmav 1.21 * Compatibility functions are now automatically included in hydra, if
93     they are not found by the configure script.
94 nmav 1.22 * Replaced the included scandir function, with the one in libc.
95 nmav 1.23 * Fixed code, which compiled fine with gcc 3.2, but didn't compile at
96 nmav 1.22 all, with any other compiler!
97 nmav 1.23 * Improved the MaxConnections directive semantics.
98 nmav 1.25 * Added a very primitive mime.types file in examples/ directory.
99 nmav 1.21
100 nmav 1.20 ** Changes from 0.0.4 to 0.0.5 - 02/10/2002
101 nmav 1.18 * If a requested CGI is not accesible then send 404 not found, instead
102     of trying to execute it.
103 nmav 1.19 * Corrected several stuff in HIC CGI handler. This allows Cookies,
104     POST data and Queries to work properly.
105 nmav 1.18
106 nmav 1.17 ** Changes from 0.0.3 to 0.0.4 - 30/09/2002
107 nmav 1.14 * Added support for If-Range, If-Match, If-None-Match HTTP/1.1 header
108     fields. The server also generates ETag headers for static content using
109 nmav 1.15 the last modified field of the file, and the file size. This makes
110     Hydra cache friendly.
111 nmav 1.16 * Added support for multiple HIC threads. This gives a boost to script generation
112 nmav 1.22 since they are no longer generated sequentially.
113 nmav 1.14
114 nmav 1.13 ** Changes from 0.0.2 to 0.0.3 - 28/09/2002
115 nmav 1.11 * Added support for dynamic modules that handle CGIs
116     internally (HIC). That way Hydra can run PHP.
117     * Fixes in CGI execution. CGIs that are not passed from aliasing
118     functions now properly set PATH_INFO and PATH_TRANSLATED.
119     (Needs further cleanup).
120 nmav 1.12 * Cleaned up SSL support. Now hydra can be compiled even if gnutls
121     is not available.
122 nmav 1.11
123 nmav 1.9 ** Changes from Boa/0.94.13 to Hydra/0.0.2 - 26/09/2002
124 nmav 1.2 * Added support for SSL 3.0 and TLS 1.0 protocols.
125     * Added support for multiple CPU's by making the server
126     run over a pool of threads.
127     * Changed the file caching code. The mmap() calls are cached until
128     the mmap list table is full.
129     * Added support for HTTP/1.1 ranges.
130 nmav 1.4 * Added support for hostname based virtual hosting.
131 nmav 1.5 Also changed the semantics of Alias, ScriptAlias and Redirect, to
132     take advantage of the host based virtual hosting.
133 nmav 1.3 * Added support for the TCP_CORK tcp option in linux.
134     * Cleaned up the CGI handling (gunzip, indexer are treated as CGIs)
135 nmav 1.10 * Enhanced grammar to handle 3 and 4 argument options.
136 nmav 1.7 * Added support for multiple directory indexes.
137     * Dropped support for gunzip.
138 nmav 1.8 * Use automake to create the distribution.
139 nmav 1.2
140 nmav 1.1 ** Changes from 0.94.12 to 0.94.13
141     * Change many instances of log_error_mesg + exit to DIE macro
142     * Change all instance of log_error_mesg (without exit) to WARN macro
143     * do a much better job of checking return values from malloc and
144     especially strdup.
145     * check results of calling umask and getrlimit
146     * server_s is no longer a global int
147     * check results of fork via switch instead of if (fork())
148     * check for getopt.h and include it if found
149     * remove unused #defines, and add WARN macro, and replace
150     many calls to log_error_mesg(..) with WARN macro
151     * fix bug in get_commonlog_time where time_offset calculation was
152     the opposite of what it should be ('-' and '+' were swapped)
153     * fix compatability bug with old and newer versions of flex/yacc
154     * add check for AC_FUNC_MMAP to configure.in
155     * fix really lame thinko in normalize_path, which would prepend the
156     results of earlier calls to results from later calls
157     * Add MaxConnections, a configuration directive which allows the
158     user to specify the maximum number of connections that Boa will
159     accept concurrently.
160     * add SERVER_ADDR and REQUEST_URI to environment of CGI
161     * handle SIGBUS during writes of data that has been memory mapped
162     * minor optimization in select.c that prevents DEAD requests from
163     being added to the block set
164     * fix bug in CGI environment script_name - closes sf.net bug #576725
165     * make 'status' variable local to requests.c, not local to every file
166     by forgetting to declare 'extern' in globals.h :-|
167     * make getsockname non-fatal, and do it every time because we may
168     need it for the CGI
169     * some minor refactoring optimizations in hash.c
170    
171     ** Changes from 0.94.11 to 0.94.12
172     * Renamed Changelog ChangeLog, and moved up to top-level directory
173     * Next 3 items due in part or whole thanks to
174     Liam Widdowson
175     * when printf'ing a pid type, force to int, because it could be
176     something else on other platforms. Should probably change it to
177     a long, and use that.
178     * backported chroot commandline support from 0.95
179     * backported support for strdup, strstr, alphasort, and scandir
180     from 0.95
181     * Fixed src/Makefile.in -- it didn't remove index_dir.o
182     * backport create_temporary_file from 0.95
183     (instead of using tmpnam)
184     * Allow non-standard date format 31 September 2000 23:59:59 GMT
185     Patch by Landon Curt Noll
186     * Skip whitespace before HTTP/major.minor
187     Adapted patch from Landon Curt Noll
188     * open /dev/null first thing (affects chrooting)
189     * properly handle sigalrm -- use sigalrm_flag and sigalrm_run
190     instead of handling the signal in the signal handler
191     * update manpage slightly
192     * send 400 BAD Request when resource does not start with '/'
193     * add grp.h to boa.h's includes -- remove from boa.c and config.c
194     * removed duplicate header includes from boa.c, config.c, get.c,
195     ip.c, request.c, response.c
196     * factor out creating the server socket and dropping privs
197     into create_server_socket and drop_privs
198     * type all functions in boa.c (except main) as static
199     * set umask after opening /dev/null
200     * tie stdin/stdout to /dev/null before commandline parse
201     * removed old, unused chroot code
202     * move builds_needs_escape earlier in the startup
203     * move fork later in the startup
204     * type all c_set_* as static in config.c
205     * don't bother trying to change uid/gid (or error if the
206     requested uid/gid doesn't exist) if not UID 0
207     * return more appropriate error code when foo.html gives
208     access denied, but foo.html.gz gives some other error
209     (essentially report error associated with foo.html, not foo.html.gz)
210     * send NOT Implemented when an unknown method is attempted
211     * always attempt a 32k read right before close
212     (stopgap until blackhole can be merged)
213     * allow more than 1 space in logline between method, resource,
214     and http version
215     * don't use inline functions
216     * update configure.in so that autoconf 2.50 doesn't complain (as much)
217     * properly use VPATH and srcdir according to autoconf docs
218     * change curly-braces to parentheses in Makefilein
219     * use $^ instead of manually listing the dependencies in Makefile.in
220     * remove tests section in Makefile.in
221     * write tags not TAGS in Makefile.in
222     * Add gethostbyname and inet_aton to function checks
223     * Add code from 0.95 which checks for socket in -lsocket,
224     inet_aton in -lresolv, and gethost{by}name in -lnsl
225     * Also remove broken bc-based "how big is an unsigned int" checks:
226     assume minimum of 32 bits and check in escape.c at runtime.
227     * Added new file: README.chroot.solaris, based on a
228     modified version by Liam Widdowson
229     * Add check_struct_for.m4, which allows us to check a structure
230     for a member (found at http://www.gnu.org/software/ac-archive/
231     authored by Wes Hardaker
232     * Call "aclocal -I ." to rebuild aclocal.m4
233     * Using new check-struct-for-member autoconf macro, check
234     for tm_gmtoff and tm_zone in struct tm -- useful in
235     portability tests for localtime.
236     * Also check sockaddr_in for structure sin_len so we can set
237     it properly.
238     * index_dir.c (which ends up in boa_indexer) can now be compiled
239     with USE_LOCALTIME, and if so, it will report the local time
240     using the timezone name. Otherwise it uses UTC time and UTC
241     timezone designation.
242     * fix buglet in mmap_cache.c which shows up when under
243     heavy load by many different files.
244     Found and squashed by Michal Kara
245     * normalize paths on Aliases, log files, server root, dirmaker
246     This makes sure that paths are 'absolute'
247     * don't generate DOCUMENT_ROOT or SERVER_ROOT,
248     CGIs have no business knowing that information
249     * if CGI, chdir to the cgi's root path
250     Bug found by Matt Callaway
251     * remove ChrootPath and PidFile directives from the parser
252     (they aren't used anyway)
253     * keep track of maximum file descriptor in use to optimize call
254     to select()
255     * apply IPv6 patch from Jari Korva
256     * optimize keep-alive copy data routine
257     * try to use memcpy instead of strcpy/strcat in more places (alias.c)
258     * update .depend file
259     * use fcntl + GET_FL to get a file descriptor's flags, then
260     add or remove only the bits we want to set. This prevents
261     accidentally setting or unsettings bits we don't have anything
262     to do with inadvertantly. (removed, at least temporarily.
263     Show me a system where it is needed -- LRD)
264     * make sure to call FD_ZERO when we handle a restart
265     * in read.c, don't call boa_perror on read failure -- socket is
266     dead or messed up anyway, no reason to try to write to it.
267     * explicit .SUFFIXES in Makefile.in
268     * boa.objdump target added
269     * use @MAKE_SET@ (for when $(MAKE) != "make")
270     * add -Wundef -Wwrite-strings -Wredundant-decls -Winline to GCC_FLAGS
271     * change Paul Phillips' and Larry Doolittle's emails in source
272     * add --disable-debug, --enable-profile, --with-dmalloc, and --with-efence
273     * test for failed-but-return-was-successful setuid:
274     http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/1322
275     * use _exit not exit in CGI child
276     * always place new keepalive request on blocked list, we can't be
277     sure of the state of the active list, and since enqueue places
278     things at the *front* of the list, it doesn't do us much good
279     to place the new request on the active list anyway.
280     * update some Copyright statements for 2002
281     * When comparing the uri to an alias, only compare if
282     the uri length is greater than or equal to the length of the alias
283     * in init_script_alias, make sure to check for document_root before
284     trying to use it
285     * script_name is now just a copy of the request, rather
286     than some complicated variation on the pathname
287     * change the way the CGI environment is handled.
288     Now, it is allocated at request allocation time, and exists
289     throughout the life of the structure.
290     * check memory allocations, etc.. when creating the static
291     CGI environment and when making new CGI environment variables
292     * wait until process_option_end to call unescape_uri, clean_pathname,
293     and translate_uri
294     * remove debian package information
295     * move RedHat packaging information to contrib
296     * remove tests -- they weren't usable anyway
297     * add some new hash routines, and use djb2 (a variant on a
298     hash algorithm popularized by Dan J. Bernstein)
299     * a side-effect of the new hash routines is a bugfix,
300     involving negative return values from hash routines.
301     This has been fixed.
302     * add a routine, show_hash_stats, which is called with other
303     statistical output via sigalarm
304     * remove some duplicate prototypes from config.c
305     * make simple_itoa take an unsigned int
306     * try to make NOBLOCK handling in compat.h compatible with Solaris
307     * make sure to update current_time before calling signal handlers
308     * alter primary loop to make sure that select gets called even
309     when there are requests that are not blocking, and call fdset_update
310     and process_requests (when appropriate) after signal handlers but
311     before select to make sure that blocked requests are still handled
312     by select after a sighup. (Thanks to Karl Olsen)
313     * pull select loop into select.c
314     * poll server socket once per active connection
315     * add send_r_service_unavailable and use it when appropriate
316     * state uptime in seconds at normal program termination
317     * include sys/fcntl.h if it is found by configure
318     * fix POST bug where a content-length < 0 would cause Boa to
319     consume its full share of CPU until killed
320     Bug report by Landon Curt Noll
321     * add CGIPath configuration variable
322     based upon a patch by Landon Curt Noll
323     * add function boa_atoi, which wraps atoi, but does not
324     accept negative values. Additionally, it checks to make sure
325     the converted value and the original value are the same, avoiding
326     issues like "124.3" -> "123" and "123abc" -=> "123".
327     Either a value is an int or it isn't - no middle ground.
328     * use boa_atoi to convert content-length from client.
329     * add new #define - SINGLE_POST_LIMIT_DEFAULT, which defines
330     (in bytes) the *default* single_post_limit.
331     * single_post_limit is now in bytes.
332     * when adding aliases, only "normalize" paths that start
333     with "./" - this is a departure from previous behavior
334     * add "?" to the list of characters that it is safe to leave unescaped
335     * clean up Makefile.in of no-longer-pertinent comments
336     * add send_r_bad_gateway and use it
337     * tie stderr to either cgi_log_fd or devnullfd - either way
338     make sure stderr is a valid filehandle before cgi execution
339     * cgi_env is no longer allocated, it's part of the struct now
340     * fix bug in CgiPath logic
341     * when unable to allocate memory for an environment variable, log it
342     * add clear_common_env, which de-allocates the cgi_common_env stuff
343     [NEVER USE THIS outside of a terminal signal handler!]
344     * don't be so wasteful of memory in normalize_path
345     * adapted fix for alias expansion from Brieuc Jeunhomme
346    
347     ** Changes from 0.94.10.1 to 0.94.11
348     * use LIBS in Makefile.in (which propagates from autoconf)
349     * properly free memory allocated by scandir in index_dir.c
350     * rearrange some header files and includes
351     * on reads and writes, don't check for -1, check for < 0
352     * include fix by William Meadows
353     for escape.c which fixes segfaults due to improper allocation
354     * above fix by William Meadows no longer needed;
355     escape.c and escape.h rewritten by Larry Doolittle -- requires
356     at least 32 bit words, but is correct (jdn's 1st attempt was faulty)
357    
358     ** Changes from 0.94.10 to 0.94.10.1
359     * Actually update the SERVER_VERSION in src/defines.h
360    
361     ** Changes from 0.94.9 to 0.94.10
362     * Fixes escaping rules
363     * Fixes segfault when directory_index is undefined and
364     directory needs to be generated
365     * adds dummy signal handlers for SIGUSR1 and SIGUSR2 (Closes SF #425921)
366     * Update documentation regarding mime.types (Closes Debian #69991)
367     * Make sure documentation builds (Closes Debian #110818)
368    
369     ** Changes from 0.94.8.3 to 0.94.9
370     * src/Makefile.in updated to take CFLAGS, LIBS, and LDFLAGS
371     from autoconf
372     * Update escaping rules with latest RFC
373     * unescape_uri skips fragments and also stop parsing at '?'
374     * Don't accept fd over FD_SETSIZE in request.c:get_request
375     * use backported documentation from 0.95
376     * make sure POST fd gets closed even on client cancel
377     * use backported index_dir.c from 0.95
378     * support subdirectories in ScriptAlias directories
379     * add SinglePostLimit (int, in Kilobytes) to config system
380     * check for ENOSPC on body write
