Branch: MAIN
CVS Tags: hydra_0_1_4
Changes since 1.51: +2 -1 lines
ported to gnutls 0.9.x and some other minor fixes.

1 ** Changes from 0.1.3 to 0.1.4 - 03/11/2003
2 * Better large file support (now uses the included autoconf macros)
3 * Added dependency on gnutls 0.9.5
4
5 ** Changes from 0.1.2 to 0.1.3 - 20/01/2003
6 * Added DefaultCharset configuration directive. The default
7 character set given, will be appended to all text mime types.
8 * Corrected bug in KeepAlive usage in HTTP/1.1, which made the
9 server to ignore the value sent by the client.
10 * CGIAction can now be used even if HIC CGIs are disabled.
11 * Some optimizations in HTTP header parsing.
12 * Added a more complete mime.types in examples/ contributed by
13 <voidnull@qnet.pl>.
14 * Added the MaxSSLConnections configuration directive.
15 * Two mutexes are used in accept to allow parallel accepts
16 of SSL and plain connections.
17 * Added Dependency on gnutls 0.8.0.
18
19 ** Changes from 0.1.1 to 0.1.2 - 08/01/2003
20 * Allow running the server as root, if explicitly stated in
21 configuration file. Patch by James Harr <james@grickle.org>
22 * Better pthreads detection.
23 * Outputs to error log if non executable CGIs are found.
24 * Does not close HTTP/1.1 connections by default.
25 * The current behavour is to demand the Host header in HTTP/1.1
26 requests.
27 * Added support for CGIAction CGIs. There are just like CGIs
28 but they are not executed. They are parsed using a given program.
29 * Added init script for redhat in contrib/redhat/rc.hydra,
30 contributed by <voidnull@qnet.pl>.
31
32 ** Changes from 0.1.0 to 0.1.1 - 17/12/2002
33 * Corrected bug in Keep-Alive mode when SSL or TLS was enabled.
34 * Fixed unexpected timeout in first connection on an idle server.
35
36 ** Changes from 0.0.10 to 0.1.0 - 16/11/2002
37 * No changes. This is the final release by me --Nikos
38
39 ** Changes from 0.0.9 to 0.0.10 - 08/11/2002
40 * Corrected bug in error logging.
41 * Use the TMPDIR environment variable instead of TMP to get
42 the temporary directory.
43
44 ** Changes from 0.0.8 to 0.0.9 - 27/10/2002
45 * Long offsets are not used by default.
46 * Use of pipes instead of temporary files, if the post data sent
47 are less than PIPE_BUF.
48 * More consistent logging. The server's hostname or "unknown"
49 are prepended to the log message.
50 * Corrected redirection/aliases behaviour, to match the documented one.
51 * SSLParamsRefresh was renamed to MaintenanceInterval and is more
52 generic, since it includes some server cleanups.
53 * Added file access control lists per virtual host. Based on patch for
54 Boa by Peter Korsgaard <jacmet@sunsite.dk>
55 * Added the ability to disable HIC threads by using 0 in the
56 HICThreads configuration directive.
57 * Hydra now uses poll by default. Select is available using the --with-select
58 configure option.
59
60 ** Changes from 0.0.7 to 0.0.8 - 25/10/2002
61 * Better pthread detection.
62 * Better detection of dlopen call.
63 * Some changes to compile in gcc 2.95
64 * Added support for FreeBSD's sendfile (untested).
65 [Ported from Boa 0.94.14rc1]
66 * add new state, IOSHUFFLE, which utilizes sendfile (or
67 emulates it using the request's buffer, otherwise)
68 * make the default socket size 32K. The client_stream_size stays constant
69 at 8K, and the new 'buffer' size is 4K
70 Note also that the new code uses the "default" socket buffer size
71 it obtains with the first accept()ed socket.
72 * make default behavior be to leave stderr alone, but tie it
73 to cgilog otherwise
74 * add [optional, Linux-only] check for sendfile system call
75 * use --disable-sendfile to disable sendfile support
76 sendfile support for files > 100K is default, now.
77 It's significantly faster and easier than the alternative
78 * umask ~0770 before exec
79 * tie stdout to the access_log, unless there is no access_log,
80 in which case tie it to /dev/null
81 * use sensible defaults for umask (077) and (027 for CGI)
82 * add and document new parameters (CGILog and CGIumask)
83 * vast improvements to the cgi-test.cgi program, by Jon Nelson
84 and Landon Curt Noll.
85 * next 3 items by Don Mahurin (patches modified somewhat):
86 * pidfile patch
87 * default mime_types patch
88 * NCSA environment environment variables wrapped in
89 #ifdef USE_NCSA_CGI_ENV
90 * fix some escaping issues with the directory indexer
91 (Ulf Harnhammar)
92 * backport poll support from 0.95
93
94 ** Changes from 0.0.6 to 0.0.7 - 10/10/2002
95 * Added support for large files in 32 bit systems.
96 * Added support for SSL_* variables in CGIs.
97 * Added options in configuration file, to request and verify
98 a client certificate.
99 * The headers of HIC-CGIs are now parsed by the server.
100 * Corrected behavour in SIGHUP signal handling, to reread
101 the SSL related variables.
102 * Children and HIC threads are now killed using a signal, to avoid
103 unexpected errors, and memory leaks.
104
105 ** Changes from 0.0.5 to 0.0.6 - 03/10/2002
106 * Compatibility functions are now automatically included in hydra, if
107 they are not found by the configure script.
108 * Replaced the included scandir function, with the one in libc.
109 * Fixed code, which compiled fine with gcc 3.2, but didn't compile at
110 all, with any other compiler!
111 * Improved the MaxConnections directive semantics.
112 * Added a very primitive mime.types file in examples/ directory.
113
114 ** Changes from 0.0.4 to 0.0.5 - 02/10/2002
115 * If a requested CGI is not accesible then send 404 not found, instead
116 of trying to execute it.
117 * Corrected several stuff in HIC CGI handler. This allows Cookies,
118 POST data and Queries to work properly.
119
120 ** Changes from 0.0.3 to 0.0.4 - 30/09/2002
121 * Added support for If-Range, If-Match, If-None-Match HTTP/1.1 header
122 fields. The server also generates ETag headers for static content using
123 the last modified field of the file, and the file size. This makes
124 Hydra cache friendly.
125 * Added support for multiple HIC threads. This gives a boost to script generation
126 since they are no longer generated sequentially.
127
128 ** Changes from 0.0.2 to 0.0.3 - 28/09/2002
129 * Added support for dynamic modules that handle CGIs
130 internally (HIC). That way Hydra can run PHP.
131 * Fixes in CGI execution. CGIs that are not passed from aliasing
132 functions now properly set PATH_INFO and PATH_TRANSLATED.
133 (Needs further cleanup).
134 * Cleaned up SSL support. Now hydra can be compiled even if gnutls
135 is not available.
136
137 ** Changes from Boa/0.94.13 to Hydra/0.0.2 - 26/09/2002
138 * Added support for SSL 3.0 and TLS 1.0 protocols.
139 * Added support for multiple CPU's by making the server
140 run over a pool of threads.
141 * Changed the file caching code. The mmap() calls are cached until
142 the mmap list table is full.
143 * Added support for HTTP/1.1 ranges.
144 * Added support for hostname based virtual hosting.
145 Also changed the semantics of Alias, ScriptAlias and Redirect, to
146 take advantage of the host based virtual hosting.
147 * Added support for the TCP_CORK tcp option in linux.
148 * Cleaned up the CGI handling (gunzip, indexer are treated as CGIs)
149 * Enhanced grammar to handle 3 and 4 argument options.
150 * Added support for multiple directory indexes.
151 * Dropped support for gunzip.
152 * Use automake to create the distribution.
153
154 ** Changes from 0.94.12 to 0.94.13
155 * Change many instances of log_error_mesg + exit to DIE macro
156 * Change all instance of log_error_mesg (without exit) to WARN macro
157 * do a much better job of checking return values from malloc and
158 especially strdup.
159 * check results of calling umask and getrlimit
160 * server_s is no longer a global int
161 * check results of fork via switch instead of if (fork())
162 * check for getopt.h and include it if found
163 * remove unused #defines, and add WARN macro, and replace
164 many calls to log_error_mesg(..) with WARN macro
165 * fix bug in get_commonlog_time where time_offset calculation was
166 the opposite of what it should be ('-' and '+' were swapped)
167 * fix compatability bug with old and newer versions of flex/yacc
168 * add check for AC_FUNC_MMAP to configure.in
169 * fix really lame thinko in normalize_path, which would prepend the
170 results of earlier calls to results from later calls
171 * Add MaxConnections, a configuration directive which allows the
172 user to specify the maximum number of connections that Boa will
173 accept concurrently.
174 * add SERVER_ADDR and REQUEST_URI to environment of CGI
175 * handle SIGBUS during writes of data that has been memory mapped
176 * minor optimization in select.c that prevents DEAD requests from
177 being added to the block set
178 * fix bug in CGI environment script_name - closes sf.net bug #576725
179 * make 'status' variable local to requests.c, not local to every file
180 by forgetting to declare 'extern' in globals.h :-|
181 * make getsockname non-fatal, and do it every time because we may
182 need it for the CGI
183 * some minor refactoring optimizations in hash.c
184
185 ** Changes from 0.94.11 to 0.94.12
186 * Renamed Changelog ChangeLog, and moved up to top-level directory
187 * Next 3 items due in part or whole thanks to
188 Liam Widdowson
189 * when printf'ing a pid type, force to int, because it could be
190 something else on other platforms. Should probably change it to
191 a long, and use that.
192 * backported chroot commandline support from 0.95
193 * backported support for strdup, strstr, alphasort, and scandir
194 from 0.95
195 * Fixed src/Makefile.in -- it didn't remove index_dir.o
196 * backport create_temporary_file from 0.95
197 (instead of using tmpnam)
198 * Allow non-standard date format 31 September 2000 23:59:59 GMT
199 Patch by Landon Curt Noll
200 * Skip whitespace before HTTP/major.minor
201 Adapted patch from Landon Curt Noll
202 * open /dev/null first thing (affects chrooting)
203 * properly handle sigalrm -- use sigalrm_flag and sigalrm_run
204 instead of handling the signal in the signal handler
205 * update manpage slightly
206 * send 400 BAD Request when resource does not start with '/'
207 * add grp.h to boa.h's includes -- remove from boa.c and config.c
208 * removed duplicate header includes from boa.c, config.c, get.c,
209 ip.c, request.c, response.c
210 * factor out creating the server socket and dropping privs
211 into create_server_socket and drop_privs
212 * type all functions in boa.c (except main) as static
213 * set umask after opening /dev/null
214 * tie stdin/stdout to /dev/null before commandline parse
215 * removed old, unused chroot code
216 * move builds_needs_escape earlier in the startup
217 * move fork later in the startup
218 * type all c_set_* as static in config.c
219 * don't bother trying to change uid/gid (or error if the
220 requested uid/gid doesn't exist) if not UID 0
221 * return more appropriate error code when foo.html gives
222 access denied, but foo.html.gz gives some other error
223 (essentially report error associated with foo.html, not foo.html.gz)
224 * send NOT Implemented when an unknown method is attempted
225 * always attempt a 32k read right before close
226 (stopgap until blackhole can be merged)
227 * allow more than 1 space in logline between method, resource,
228 and http version
229 * don't use inline functions
230 * update configure.in so that autoconf 2.50 doesn't complain (as much)
231 * properly use VPATH and srcdir according to autoconf docs
232 * change curly-braces to parentheses in Makefilein
233 * use $^ instead of manually listing the dependencies in Makefile.in
234 * remove tests section in Makefile.in
235 * write tags not TAGS in Makefile.in
236 * Add gethostbyname and inet_aton to function checks
237 * Add code from 0.95 which checks for socket in -lsocket,
238 inet_aton in -lresolv, and gethost{by}name in -lnsl
239 * Also remove broken bc-based "how big is an unsigned int" checks:
240 assume minimum of 32 bits and check in escape.c at runtime.
241 * Added new file: README.chroot.solaris, based on a
242 modified version by Liam Widdowson
243 * Add check_struct_for.m4, which allows us to check a structure
244 for a member (found at http://www.gnu.org/software/ac-archive/
245 authored by Wes Hardaker
246 * Call "aclocal -I ." to rebuild aclocal.m4
247 * Using new check-struct-for-member autoconf macro, check
248 for tm_gmtoff and tm_zone in struct tm -- useful in
249 portability tests for localtime.
250 * Also check sockaddr_in for structure sin_len so we can set
251 it properly.
252 * index_dir.c (which ends up in boa_indexer) can now be compiled
253 with USE_LOCALTIME, and if so, it will report the local time
254 using the timezone name. Otherwise it uses UTC time and UTC
255 timezone designation.
256 * fix buglet in mmap_cache.c which shows up when under
257 heavy load by many different files.
258 Found and squashed by Michal Kara
259 * normalize paths on Aliases, log files, server root, dirmaker
260 This makes sure that paths are 'absolute'
261 * don't generate DOCUMENT_ROOT or SERVER_ROOT,
262 CGIs have no business knowing that information
263 * if CGI, chdir to the cgi's root path
264 Bug found by Matt Callaway
265 * remove ChrootPath and PidFile directives from the parser
266 (they aren't used anyway)
267 * keep track of maximum file descriptor in use to optimize call
268 to select()
269 * apply IPv6 patch from Jari Korva
270 * optimize keep-alive copy data routine
271 * try to use memcpy instead of strcpy/strcat in more places (alias.c)
272 * update .depend file
273 * use fcntl + GET_FL to get a file descriptor's flags, then
274 add or remove only the bits we want to set. This prevents
275 accidentally setting or unsettings bits we don't have anything
276 to do with inadvertantly. (removed, at least temporarily.
277 Show me a system where it is needed -- LRD)
278 * make sure to call FD_ZERO when we handle a restart
279 * in read.c, don't call boa_perror on read failure -- socket is
280 dead or messed up anyway, no reason to try to write to it.
281 * explicit .SUFFIXES in Makefile.in
282 * boa.objdump target added
283 * use @MAKE_SET@ (for when $(MAKE) != "make")
284 * add -Wundef -Wwrite-strings -Wredundant-decls -Winline to GCC_FLAGS
285 * change Paul Phillips' and Larry Doolittle's emails in source
286 * add --disable-debug, --enable-profile, --with-dmalloc, and --with-efence
287 * test for failed-but-return-was-successful setuid:
288 http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/1322
289 * use _exit not exit in CGI child
290 * always place new keepalive request on blocked list, we can't be
291 sure of the state of the active list, and since enqueue places
292 things at the *front* of the list, it doesn't do us much good
293 to place the new request on the active list anyway.
294 * update some Copyright statements for 2002
295 * When comparing the uri to an alias, only compare if
296 the uri length is greater than or equal to the length of the alias
297 * in init_script_alias, make sure to check for document_root before
298 trying to use it
299 * script_name is now just a copy of the request, rather
300 than some complicated variation on the pathname
301 * change the way the CGI environment is handled.
302 Now, it is allocated at request allocation time, and exists
303 throughout the life of the structure.
304 * check memory allocations, etc.. when creating the static
305 CGI environment and when making new CGI environment variables
306 * wait until process_option_end to call unescape_uri, clean_pathname,
307 and translate_uri
308 * remove debian package information
309 * move RedHat packaging information to contrib
310 * remove tests -- they weren't usable anyway
311 * add some new hash routines, and use djb2 (a variant on a
312 hash algorithm popularized by Dan J. Bernstein)
313 * a side-effect of the new hash routines is a bugfix,
314 involving negative return values from hash routines.
315 This has been fixed.
316 * add a routine, show_hash_stats, which is called with other
317 statistical output via sigalarm
318 * remove some duplicate prototypes from config.c
319 * make simple_itoa take an unsigned int
320 * try to make NOBLOCK handling in compat.h compatible with Solaris
321 * make sure to update current_time before calling signal handlers
322 * alter primary loop to make sure that select gets called even
323 when there are requests that are not blocking, and call fdset_update
324 and process_requests (when appropriate) after signal handlers but
325 before select to make sure that blocked requests are still handled
326 by select after a sighup. (Thanks to Karl Olsen)
327 * pull select loop into select.c
328 * poll server socket once per active connection
329 * add send_r_service_unavailable and use it when appropriate
330 * state uptime in seconds at normal program termination
331 * include sys/fcntl.h if it is found by configure
332 * fix POST bug where a content-length < 0 would cause Boa to
333 consume its full share of CPU until killed
334 Bug report by Landon Curt Noll
335 * add CGIPath configuration variable
336 based upon a patch by Landon Curt Noll
337 * add function boa_atoi, which wraps atoi, but does not
338 accept negative values. Additionally, it checks to make sure
339 the converted value and the original value are the same, avoiding
340 issues like "124.3" -> "123" and "123abc" -=> "123".
341 Either a value is an int or it isn't - no middle ground.
342 * use boa_atoi to convert content-length from client.
343 * add new #define - SINGLE_POST_LIMIT_DEFAULT, which defines
344 (in bytes) the *default* single_post_limit.
345 * single_post_limit is now in bytes.
346 * when adding aliases, only "normalize" paths that start
347 with "./" - this is a departure from previous behavior
348 * add "?" to the list of characters that it is safe to leave unescaped
349 * clean up Makefile.in of no-longer-pertinent comments
350 * add send_r_bad_gateway and use it
351 * tie stderr to either cgi_log_fd or devnullfd - either way
352 make sure stderr is a valid filehandle before cgi execution
353 * cgi_env is no longer allocated, it's part of the struct now
354 * fix bug in CgiPath logic
355 * when unable to allocate memory for an environment variable, log it
356 * add clear_common_env, which de-allocates the cgi_common_env stuff
357 [NEVER USE THIS outside of a terminal signal handler!]
358 * don't be so wasteful of memory in normalize_path
359 * adapted fix for alias expansion from Brieuc Jeunhomme
360
361 ** Changes from 0.94.10.1 to 0.94.11
362 * use LIBS in Makefile.in (which propagates from autoconf)
363 * properly free memory allocated by scandir in index_dir.c
364 * rearrange some header files and includes
365 * on reads and writes, don't check for -1, check for < 0
366 * include fix by William Meadows
367 for escape.c which fixes segfaults due to improper allocation
368 * above fix by William Meadows no longer needed;
369 escape.c and escape.h rewritten by Larry Doolittle -- requires
370 at least 32 bit words, but is correct (jdn's 1st attempt was faulty)
371
372 ** Changes from 0.94.10 to 0.94.10.1
373 * Actually update the SERVER_VERSION in src/defines.h

380 * Update documentation regarding mime.types (Closes Debian #69991)
381 * Make sure documentation builds (Closes Debian #110818)
382
383 ** Changes from 0.94.8.3 to 0.94.9
384 * src/Makefile.in updated to take CFLAGS, LIBS, and LDFLAGS
385 from autoconf
386 * Update escaping rules with latest RFC
387 * unescape_uri skips fragments and also stop parsing at '?'
388 * Don't accept fd over FD_SETSIZE in request.c:get_request
389 * use backported documentation from 0.95
390 * make sure POST fd gets closed even on client cancel
391 * use backported index_dir.c from 0.95
392 * support subdirectories in ScriptAlias directories
393 * add SinglePostLimit (int, in Kilobytes) to config system
394 * check for ENOSPC on body write
395 * use environment variable TMP (or "/tmp" if not available),
396 and chdir there when boa exits.
397 * add 1-time-only hack to make a 32kB read at the end of a request
398 on POST or PUT
399 * close unused file descriptors (/dev/null in boa.c, and the
400 unused part of the pipes call in cgi.c)
401 * made Makefile.in VPATH happy
402
403 ** Changes from 0.94.8.2 to 0.94.8.3
