Release version 0.8.3

  • Property mode set to 100644
File size: 9.4 KB
1** Version 0.8.3 (2017-10-20)
2- Use GnuTLS' default DH parameters by default
3- Handle long Server Name Indication data and gracefully ignore
4  unknown SNI types
5- Send SNI for proxy connections
6- Deprecate OpenPGP support like GnuTLS did (will be removed
7  completely in a future release)
8- Do not announce session ticket support for proxy connections
9- Minor documentation updates (SSL_CLIENT_I_DN, reference for SNI)
10- Test suite: Simplify handling of proxy backend servers and OCSP
11  responders
12- Test suite: stability/compatibility fixes
14** Version 0.8.2 (2017-01-08)
15- Test suite: Ensure CRLF line ends in HTTP headers
16- Test suite, gen_ocsp_index.c: Handle serial as fixed order byte array
18** Version 0.8.1 (2016-12-20)
19- Bugfix: Use APR_SIZE_T_FMT for portable apr_size_t formatting
21** Version 0.8.0 (2016-12-11)
22- New: Support for OCSP stapling
23- Bugfix: Access to DBM cache is locked using global mutex
24  "gnutls-cache"
25- Bugfix: GnuTLSSessionTickets is now disabled by default as described
26  in the handbook
27- Fixed memory leak while checking proxy backend certificate
28- Fixed memory leaks in post_config
29- Safely delete session ticket key (requires GnuTLS >= 3.4)
30- Improved error handling in post_config hook
31- Various handbook updates
32- Internal API documentation can be generated using Doxygen
33- Unused code has been removed (conditionals for GnuTLS 2.x and Apache
34  versions before 2.2, internal Lua bytecode structure last used in
35  2011).
36- Test suite: Fixed locking for access to the PGP keyring of the test
37  certificate authority
38- mod_gnutls can be built using Clang (unsupported)
40** Version 0.7.5 (2016-05-28)
41- Sunil Mohan Adapa reported retry loops during session shutdown in
42  cleanup_gnutls_session() due to gnutls_bye() incorrectly returning
43  GNUTLS_E_INTERRUPTED or GNUTLS_E_AGAIN. Setting the GnuTLS session
44  errno in mgs_transport_write() fixes the problem.
45- Import Daniel Kahn Gillmor's patches for GnuPG v2 support from the
46  Debian package.
47- Build system improvements that allow VPATH builds and get "make
48  distcheck" to work
50** Version 0.7.4 (2016-04-13)
51- Support SoftHSM 2 for PKCS #11 testing
52- Increase verbosity of test logs
54** Version 0.7.3 (2016-01-12)
55- Update test suite for compatibility with GnuTLS 3.4, which has
56  stricter key usage checks and priorities than 3.3.
57- Write non-HTML output to mod_status reports if AP_STATUS_SHORT is
58  set (mod_status sets it for requests with the "auto" parameter, e.g.
59  https://localhost/server-status?auto).
60- Register "ssl_is_https" function so the special mod_rewrite variable
61  %{HTTPS} works correctly with mod_gnutls. The new test case for this
62  requires Wget or curl. Fixes Debian bug #514005.
63- Test suite servers listen on IPv4 *and* IPv6 loopback addresses by
64  default (other addresses configurable), which should fix failures
65  due to localhost randomly resolving to either on some distributions.
66- Isolate tests using network namespaces, if possible. This avoids
67  port conflicts with other test cases (so they can run in parallel)
68  and host services.
69- Support for local Apache drop-in config files in the test suite
70  (e.g. to load additional modules needed on Fedora).
71- Try to use markdown to build HTML documentation if pandoc is not
72  available.
73- Disable use of flock if it is unavailable or does not support
74  timeouts (the latter caused the build to fail on Debian Hurd).
75- New test: Disable TLS 1.0 (regression test for Debian bug #754960).
77** Version 0.7.2 (2015-11-21)
78- Bugfix: Non-blocking reads in the input filter could lead to a busy
79  wait in the gnutls_io_input_read function, causing high load on
80  Keep-Alive connections waiting for data, until either more data
81  could be received or the connection was closed. The fix is to pass
82  EAGAIN/EINTR results up to the input filter so they can be handled
83  properly.
84- Close TLS session if the input filter receives EOF (mostly relevant
85  for proper termination of proxy connections).
86- Remove dependency on APR Memcache, which is replaced by the newer
87  version included in the APR Utility Library (libaprutil).
88- Remove dependency on bc. It was used for floating point arithmetic
89  in the test suite, the calculations have been changed to use
90  integers and pure bash code.
92** Version 0.7.1 (2015-10-18)
93- Improved handling of PKCS #11 modules: mod_gnutls now loads either
94  modules specified using GnuTLSP11Module, or the system defaults, but
95  not both. Thanks to Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos for the report and
96  initial patch!
97- Initialize variables to safe defaults during client certificate
98  verification. Certain error code paths did not set them, but they
99  should never be hit due to config validation. This adds another line
100  of defense.
101- Enable C99 support via autoconf
102- Test suite improvements. Most importantly, automake now handles
103  environment setup without any external make calls. Rules to build
104  the certificates are included from the old test makefile. Note that
105  the dependency on GNU make is not new (the test makefile always used
106  GNU make syntax), it just wasn't listed explicitly.
108** Version 0.7 (2015-07-12)
109- Security fix for TLS client authentication (CVE-2015-2091)
110- Bug fixes that enable support for reverse proxy operation
111- Various test suite improvements. Tests are configured through autoconf,
112  so the test suite now works for builds without Monkeysphere support.
113- Add support for TLS connections to back end servers when operating as a
114  reverse proxy (X.509 authentication only at the moment).
115- PKCS #11 support for server keys and certificates
116- Use strict compiler arguments by default (-Wall -Werror -Wextra)
117- Allow limiting the size of certificates exported as SSL_SERVER_CERT
118  and SSL_CLIENT_CERT through the GnuTLSExportCertificates directive
120** Version 0.6 (2014-02-17)
121- Generating DH Params instead of using static ones.
122- Now considering ServerAlias Directives.
123- Major Legacy Code Cleanup.
124- html and pdf and manual documentation generated from markdown sources
125- support monkeysphere validation agent (MSVA) client-certificate verification
126- wider test suite
127- GnuTLSExportCertificates off by default
129** Version 0.5.10 (2011-07-12)
130- Patched a bug responsible for excessive memory consumption by mod_gnutls.
131- Support for proxying from SSL to plain HTTP was added (ie. proxy termination).
133** Version 0.5.9 (2010-09-24)
134- GnuTLSCache none is now an allowed option.
135- Corrected behavior in Keep-Alive connections (do not
136  terminate the connection prematurely)
137- The GnuTLSCache variable now can be given the specific
138  option "gdbm" instead of "dbm". "dbm" will use the berkeley
139  db type of libapr while gdbm will force gdbm to be used.
140  sdbm is no longer being used due to serious limitations.
142** Version 0.5.8 (2010-08-18)
143- Session tickets are enabled by default.
144- Fixes some segmentation faults noticed in some
145  configurations.
147** Version 0.5.7 (2010-07-01)
148- Force usage of SDBM. For some reason the default in
149  my system had issues after reaching a limit of entries.
150  SDBM seems stable so force it.
151- Optimizations in session caching.
152- Added support for session tickets. This allows a
153  server to avoid using a session cache and still support
154  session resumption. This is at the cost of transporting
155  session data during handshake. New option
156  GnuTLSSessionTickets [on|off]
157- Depend on gnutls 2.10.0 to force support for safe
158  renegotiation.
160** Version 0.5.6 (2010-03-24)
161- Corrected issue with firefox and long POST data (by
162  handling EINTR and EAGAIN errors in read).
163- Added support for chained client certificates
164- Corrected more issues related to double frees
167** Version 0.5.5 (2009-06-13)
168- Removed limits on CA certificate loading. Reported by
169  Sander Marechal and Jack Bates.
170- Do not allow sending empty TLS packets even when instructed to.
171  This had the side effect of clients closing connection.
173** Version 0.5.4 (2009-01-04)
174- mod_gnutls.h: modified definition to extern to avoid compilation
175  errors in darwin.
176- Added patch to fix issue with mod_proxy. Investigation and patch by Alain
177  Knaff.
178- libgnutls detection uses pkg-config.
180** Version 0.5.3 (2008-10-16)
181- Corrected bug to allow having an OpenPGP-only web site.
182- Increased Max handshake tries due to interrupted system calls.
184** Version 0.5.2 (2008-06-29)
185- Depend on gnutls 2.4 which has openpgp support in main library.
187** Version 0.5.1 (2008-03-05)
188- Added --disable-srp configure option
189- Better check for memcache (patch by Guillaume Rousse)
190- Corrected possible memory leak in DBM support for resuming sessions.
192** Version 0.5.0-alpha (2008-01-24)
193- Added support for OpenPGP keys. The new directives are:
194  GnuTLSPGPKeyringFile, GnuTLSPGPCertificateFile, GnuTLSPGPKeyFile
196** Version 0.4.2 (2007-12-10)
197- Added support for sending a certificate chain.
198- Corrected bug which did not allow the TLS session cache to be used.
199- Do not allow resuming sessions on different servers.
201** Version 0.4.1 (2007-12-03)
202- Added support for subject alternative names in certificates.
203Only one per certificate is supported.
204- New enviroment variables: SSL_CLIENT_M_VERSION, SSL_CLIENT_S_SAN%,
206- The compatibility mode can now be enabled explicitely with the
207%COMPAT keyword at the GnuTLSPriorities string. It is no longer the default.
208- Check for GnuTLSPriorities directive. This corrects a segfault. Thanks
209to David Hrbáč.
210- Better handling of GnuTLSDHFile and GnuTLSRSAFile.
211- No longer default paths for RSA and DH parameter files.
