Changes since 1.49.2.10: +2 -0 lines
*** empty log message ***

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

362 * Update documentation regarding mime.types (Closes Debian #69991)
363 * Make sure documentation builds (Closes Debian #110818)
364
365 ** Changes from 0.94.8.3 to 0.94.9
366 * src/Makefile.in updated to take CFLAGS, LIBS, and LDFLAGS
367 from autoconf
368 * Update escaping rules with latest RFC
369 * unescape_uri skips fragments and also stop parsing at '?'
370 * Don't accept fd over FD_SETSIZE in request.c:get_request
371 * use backported documentation from 0.95
372 * make sure POST fd gets closed even on client cancel
373 * use backported index_dir.c from 0.95
374 * support subdirectories in ScriptAlias directories
375 * add SinglePostLimit (int, in Kilobytes) to config system
376 * check for ENOSPC on body write
377 * use environment variable TMP (or "/tmp" if not available),
378 and chdir there when boa exits.
379 * add 1-time-only hack to make a 32kB read at the end of a request
380 on POST or PUT
381 * close unused file descriptors (/dev/null in boa.c, and the
382 unused part of the pipes call in cgi.c)
383 * made Makefile.in VPATH happy
384
385 ** Changes from 0.94.8.2 to 0.94.8.3
