     added to the recent Tomcat versions without breaking the AJP protocol.
     [Mladen Turk]

  *) mod_proxy_balancer: Set the new environment variable BALANCER_ROUTE_CHANGED

  *) mod_proxy_ajp: Added cping/cpong support for the AJP protocol.
     A new worker directive ping=timeout will cause CPING packet
     to be send expecting CPONG packet within defined timeout.  
     In case the backend is too busy this will fail instead
     sending the full header.  [Mladen Turk]

  *) mod_disk_cache: Make sure that only positive integers are accepted
     for the CacheMaxFileSize and CacheMinFileSize parameters in the
     config file. PR39380.  [Niklas Edmundsson <nikke acc.umu.se>]

     authority component and an empty path, the empty path is to be equivalent
     to "/". It explicitly cites the following four URIs as equivalents:
       http://example.com
       http://example.com/
       http://example.com:/
       http://example.com:80/
     [Davi Arnaut <davi haxent.com.br>]

  *) mod_cache: Don't cache requests with a expires date in the past;
     otherwise mod_cache will always try to cache the URL. This bug
     might lead to numerous rename() errors on win32 if the URL was
     previously cached. [Davi Arnaut <davi haxent.com.br>]

  *) core: Deal with the widespread use of apr_status_t return values
     as HTTP status codes, as documented in PR#31759 (a bug shared by

     token parser worked while the resulting length was misinterpreted.
     PR 29098.  [Brock Bland <bbland serena.com>]

  *) mod_isapi: Return 0 (failure) for more of the various ap_pass_brigade
     attempts to stream the response at the client.  Log these as well.
     PR 30022, 40470.  [William Rowe, Matt Eaton <asf divinehawk.com>]

  *) The full server version information is now included in the error log at
     startup as well as server status reports, irrespective of the setting
     of the ServerTokens directive.  ap_get_server_version() is now deprecated,
     and is replaced by ap_get_server_banner() and ap_get_server_description().
     [Jeff Trawick]

  *) mod_proxy_balancer: Workers can now be defined as part of
     a balancer cluster "set" in which members of a lower-numbered set
     are preferred over higher numbered ones.  [Jim Jagielski]

  *) mod_proxy_balancer: Workers can now be defined as "hot standby" which
     will only be used if all other workers are unusable (eg: in
     error or disabled). Also, the balancer-manager displays the election
     count and I/O counts of all workers.  [Jim Jagielski]

  *) mod_proxy_ajp: Close connection to backend if reading of request body
     fails. PR 40310.  [Ian Abel <ianabel mxtelecom.com>]

     [Mladen Turk]

  *) Added proxy_ajp.c module for proxy support to ajp:// backends.
     [Jean Frederic Clere]

     to enable Header and RequestHeader directives to be used to set up
     testcases for pre-fixups request phases [Nick Kew]

     OpenSSL 0.9.7 flag which uses the server's cipher order rather
     than the client's.  PR 28665.
     [Jim Schneider <jschneid netilla.com>]

  *) mod_ssl: Drop support for the CompatEnvVars argument to
     SSLOptions, which was never actually implemented in 2.0.
     [Joe Orton]

     them via the shell, resolving regressions since 1.3.  PR 28815
     [Ken Coar, Jeff Trawick]

  *) External rewrite map responses are no longer limited to 2048
     bytes.  [André Malo]

     assigned if the origin server had set any cookies. PR 27023.
     [Jim Jagielski]

  *) Removed old and unmaintained ap_add_named_module API and changed
     the following APIs to return an error instead of hard exiting:

     for some third-party modules on platforms with small default 
     thread stack size.  [Jeff Trawick]

  *) minor mod_auth_basic and mod_auth_digest sync.  mod_auth_basic
     now populates r->user with the (possibly unauthenticated) user,
     and mod_auth_digest returns 500 when a provider returns

     [André Malo]

  *) mod_rewrite: EOLs sent by external rewritemaps are now consumed

     rewritemap programs no longer need to switch stdout to binary
     mode. PR 25635.  [André Malo]

  *) mod_rewrite: Introduce the ability to force a content handler via

     redirects.  [Ken Coar]

  *) Fix <Limit> and <LimitExcept> parsing to require a closing '>' 
     in the initial container.  PR 25414. 
     [Geoffrey Young <geoff apache.org>]

     filesystem name are rejected with 403.  [Jeff Trawick]

  *) Switch to APR 1.0 API.

  *) Major overhaul of mod_include's filter parser. The new parser code
     is expected to be more robust and should catch all of the edge cases
     that were not handled by the previous one. This includes a binary
     incompatible change of mod_include's external API.  [André Malo]

  *) mod_rewrite: Allow forced mimetypes [T=...] to get expanded.
     PR 14223.  [André Malo]

  *) mod_rewrite: Fix LA-U and LA-F lookups in directory context. Previously
     the current rewrite state was just used as lookup path, which lead to
     strange and often useless results. Related to PR 8493.  [André Malo]

     not specified.  [Justin Erenkrantz]

  *) Correct failure with Listen directives on machines with IPv6 enabled.

     [Geoff Thorpe <geoff geoffthorpe.net>]

  *) change directive name from 'compressionlevel' to 'deflatecompressionlevel'
     [Ian Holsman, André Malo]

  *) mod_negotiation: quality values are now parsed independent from
     the current locale. level values are now really parsed as integers.
     PR 17564.  [André Malo]

  *) Extend mod_negotiation to evaluate the environment variables
     no-gzip and gzip-only-text/html the same way as mod_deflate does.
     [André Malo]

  *) mod_rewrite: Fix some problems reporting errors with mapping
     programs (RewriteMap prg:/something).  [Jeff Trawick]

  *) Return 413 if chunk-ext-header is too long rather than reading from
     the truncated line.  PR 15857.  [Justin Erenkrantz]
