Software-update: Apache 2.3.15 bta

Het ontwikkelteam van het Apache HTTP Server Project heeft een nieuwe versie van de Apache-webserver uitgegeven met 2.3.15 bèta als het versienummer. Deze server is met behulp van modules van allerlei extra functionaliteit te voorzien. Voor een overzicht van de veranderingen tussen de huidige 2.2x-tak en de aankomende 2.4x-tak verwijzen we jullie door naar deze pagina. De aankondiging en lijst met veranderingen voor versie 2.3.15 bèta zien er als volgt uit:

Apache HTTP Server 2.3.15-beta

The Apache HTTP Server Project is pleased to announce the third Beta release of Apache HTTP Server 2.4: version 2.3.15-beta. This version of httpd is principally an beta release to test new technology and features that are incompatible or too large for the stable 2.2.x branch. This Beta release should not be presumed to be compatible with binaries built against any prior or future version although, as a Beta, the API is in a semi-frozen state.

All subsequent releases will be beta releases as we move towards 2.4.0-GA.

Changes with Apache 2.3.15
  • SECURITY: CVE-2011-3348 (
    mod_proxy_ajp: Respond with HTTP_NOT_IMPLEMENTED when the method is not recognized.
  • SECURITY: CVE-2011-3192 (

  • SECURITY: CVE-2011-3607 (
    core: Fix integer overflow in ap_pregsub. This can be triggered e.g. with mod_setenvif via a malicious .htaccess.
  • configure: Load all modules in the generated default configuration when using --enable-load-all-modules.
  • mod_reqtimeout: Change the default to set some reasonable timeout values.
  • core, mod_dav_fs: Change default ETag to be "size mtime", i.e. remove the inode. PR 49623.
  • mod_lua: Expose SSL variables via r:ssl_var_lookup().
  • mod_lua: LuaHook{AccessChecker,AuthChecker,CheckUserID,TranslateName} can now additionally be run as "early" or "late" relative to other modules.
  • configure: By default, only load those modules that are either required or explicitly selected by a configure --enable-foo argument. The LoadModule statements for modules enabled by --enable-mods-shared=most and friends will be commented out.
  • mod_lua: Prevent early Lua hooks (LuaHookTranslateName and LuaHookQuickHandler) from being configured in <Directory>, <Files>, and htaccess where the configuration would have been ignored.
  • mod_lua: Resolve "attempt to index local 'r' (a userdata value)" errors in LuaMapHandler scripts
  • mod_log_debug: Rename optional argument from if= to expr=, to be more in line with other config directives.
  • mod_headers: Require an expression to be specified with expr=, to be more in line with other config directives.
  • mod_substitute: To prevent overboarding memory usage, limit line length to 1MB.
  • mod_lua: Make the query string (r.args) writable.
  • mod_include: Add support for application/x-www-form-urlencoded encoding and decoding.
  • rotatelogs: Add -c option to force logfile creation in every rotation interval, even if empty.
  • core: Limit ap_pregsub() to 64K, add ap_pregsub_ex() for longer strings.
  • mod_session_crypto: Refactor to support the new apr_crypto API.
  • http: Add missing Location header if local URL-path is used as ErrorDocument for 30x.
  • mod_buffer: Make sure we step down for subrequests, but not for internal redirects triggered by mod_rewrite.
  • mod_lua: add r:construct_url as a wrapper for ap_construct_url.
  • mod_remote_ip: Fix configuration of internal proxies. PR 49272.
  • mpm_winnt: Handle AcceptFilter 'none' mode correctly; resolve specific server IP endpoint and remote client IP upon connection.
  • mod_setenvif: Remove OID match which is obsoleted by SetEnvIfExpr with PeerExtList().
  • mpm_prefork, mpm_worker, mpm_event: If a child is created just before graceful restart and then exits because of a missing lock file, don't shutdown the whole server. PR 39311.
  • mpm_event: Check the return value from ap_run_create_connection. PR: 41194.
  • mod_mime_magic: Add signatures for PNG and SWF to the example config. PR: 48352.
  • core, unixd: Add -D DUMP_RUN_CFG option to dump some configuration items from the parsed (or default) config. This is useful for init scripts that need to setup temporary directories and permissions.
  • core, mod_actions, mod_asis: Downgrade error log messages which accompany a 404 request status from loglevel error to info. PR: 35768.
  • core: Fix hook sorting with Perl modules. PR: 45076.
  • core: Enforce LimitRequestFieldSize after multiple headers with the same name have been merged.
  • mod_ssl: If MaxMemFree is set, ask OpenSSL >= 1.0.0 to reduce memory usage. PR 51618.
  • mod_ssl: At startup, when checking a server certificate whether it matches the configured ServerName, also take dNSName entries in the subjectAltName extension into account. PR 32652, PR 47051.

  • Fix cross-compilation of mod_cgi/mod_cgid when APR_HAVE_STRUCT_RLIMIT is false but RLIMIT_* are defined. PR51371.
  • core: Correctly obey ServerName / ServerAlias if the Host header from the request matches the VirtualHost address. PR 51709.
  • mod_unique_id: Use random number generator to initialize counter. PR 45110.
  • core: Add convenience API for apr_random.
  • core: Add MaxRangeOverlaps and MaxRangeReversals directives to control the number of overlapping and reversing ranges (respectively) permitted before returning the entire resource, with a default limit of 20.
  • mod_ldap: Optional function uldap_ssl_supported(r) always returned false if called from a virtual host with mod_ldap directives in it. Did not affect mod_authnz_ldap's usage of mod_ldap.
  • mod_filter: Instead of dropping the Accept-Ranges header when a filter registered with AP_FILTER_PROTO_NO_BYTERANGE is present, set the header value to "none".
  • core: Allow MaxRanges none|unlimited|default and set 'Accept-Ranges: none' in the case Ranges are being ignored with MaxRanges none.
  • mod_ssl: revamp CRL-based revocation checking when validating certificates of clients or proxied servers. Completely delegate CRL processing to OpenSSL, and add a new [Proxy]CARevocationCheck directive for controlling the revocation checking mode.
  • core: Add MaxRanges directive to control the number of ranges permitted before returning the entire resource, with a default limit of 200.

  • mod_ldap: Change default number of retries from 10 to 3, and add an LDAPRetries and LDAPRetryDelay directives.
  • mod_authnz_ldap: Don't retry during authentication, because this just multiplies the ample retries already being done by mod_ldap.
  • configure: Allow to explicitly disable modules even with module selection 'reallyall'.
  • mod_rewrite: Check validity of each internal (int:) RewriteMap even if the RewriteEngine is disabled in server context, avoiding a crash while referencing the invalid int: map at runtime. PR 50994.
  • mod_ssl, configure: require OpenSSL 0.9.7 or later.
  • mod_ssl: remove ssl_toolkit_compat layer.
  • mod_ssl, configure, ab: drop support for RSA BSAFE SSL-C toolkit.
  • mod_usertrack: Run mod_usertrack earlier in the fixups hook to ensure the cookie is set when modules such as mod_rewrite trigger a redirect. Also use r->err_headers_out for the cookie, for the same reason. PR29755.
  • mod_proxy_http, mod_proxy_connect: Add 'proxy-status' and 'proxy-source-port' request notes for logging. PR 30195.
