1** Version 0.8.1 (2016-12-20)
2- Bugfix: Use APR_SIZE_T_FMT for portable apr_size_t formatting
3
4** Version 0.8.0 (2016-12-11)
5- New: Support for OCSP stapling
6- Bugfix: Access to DBM cache is locked using global mutex
7  "gnutls-cache"
8- Bugfix: GnuTLSSessionTickets is now disabled by default as described
9  in the handbook
10- Fixed memory leak while checking proxy backend certificate
11- Fixed memory leaks in post_config
12- Safely delete session ticket key (requires GnuTLS >= 3.4)
13- Improved error handling in post_config hook
14- Various handbook updates
15- Internal API documentation can be generated using Doxygen
16- Unused code has been removed (conditionals for GnuTLS 2.x and Apache
17  versions before 2.2, internal Lua bytecode structure last used in
18  2011).
19- Test suite: Fixed locking for access to the PGP keyring of the test
20  certificate authority
21- mod_gnutls can be built using Clang (unsupported)
22
23** Version 0.7.5 (2016-05-28)
24- Sunil Mohan Adapa reported retry loops during session shutdown in
25  cleanup_gnutls_session() due to gnutls_bye() incorrectly returning
26  GNUTLS_E_INTERRUPTED or GNUTLS_E_AGAIN. Setting the GnuTLS session
27  errno in mgs_transport_write() fixes the problem.
28- Import Daniel Kahn Gillmor's patches for GnuPG v2 support from the
29  Debian package.
30- Build system improvements that allow VPATH builds and get "make
31  distcheck" to work
32
33** Version 0.7.4 (2016-04-13)
34- Support SoftHSM 2 for PKCS #11 testing
35- Increase verbosity of test logs
36
37** Version 0.7.3 (2016-01-12)
38- Update test suite for compatibility with GnuTLS 3.4, which has
39  stricter key usage checks and priorities than 3.3.
40- Write non-HTML output to mod_status reports if AP_STATUS_SHORT is
41  set (mod_status sets it for requests with the "auto" parameter, e.g.
42  https://localhost/server-status?auto).
43- Register "ssl_is_https" function so the special mod_rewrite variable
44  %{HTTPS} works correctly with mod_gnutls. The new test case for this
45  requires Wget or curl. Fixes Debian bug #514005.
46- Test suite servers listen on IPv4 *and* IPv6 loopback addresses by
47  default (other addresses configurable), which should fix failures
48  due to localhost randomly resolving to either on some distributions.
49- Isolate tests using network namespaces, if possible. This avoids
50  port conflicts with other test cases (so they can run in parallel)
51  and host services.
52- Support for local Apache drop-in config files in the test suite
53  (e.g. to load additional modules needed on Fedora).
54- Try to use markdown to build HTML documentation if pandoc is not
55  available.
56- Disable use of flock if it is unavailable or does not support
57  timeouts (the latter caused the build to fail on Debian Hurd).
58- New test: Disable TLS 1.0 (regression test for Debian bug #754960).
59
60** Version 0.7.2 (2015-11-21)
61- Bugfix: Non-blocking reads in the input filter could lead to a busy
62  wait in the gnutls_io_input_read function, causing high load on
63  Keep-Alive connections waiting for data, until either more data
64  could be received or the connection was closed. The fix is to pass
65  EAGAIN/EINTR results up to the input filter so they can be handled
66  properly.
67- Close TLS session if the input filter receives EOF (mostly relevant
68  for proper termination of proxy connections).
69- Remove dependency on APR Memcache, which is replaced by the newer
70  version included in the APR Utility Library (libaprutil).
71- Remove dependency on bc. It was used for floating point arithmetic
72  in the test suite, the calculations have been changed to use
73  integers and pure bash code.
74
75** Version 0.7.1 (2015-10-18)
76- Improved handling of PKCS #11 modules: mod_gnutls now loads either
77  modules specified using GnuTLSP11Module, or the system defaults, but
78  not both. Thanks to Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos for the report and
79  initial patch!
80- Initialize variables to safe defaults during client certificate
81  verification. Certain error code paths did not set them, but they
82  should never be hit due to config validation. This adds another line
83  of defense.
84- Enable C99 support via autoconf
85- Test suite improvements. Most importantly, automake now handles
86  environment setup without any external make calls. Rules to build
87  the certificates are included from the old test makefile. Note that
88  the dependency on GNU make is not new (the test makefile always used
89  GNU make syntax), it just wasn't listed explicitly.
90
91** Version 0.7 (2015-07-12)
92- Security fix for TLS client authentication (CVE-2015-2091)
93- Bug fixes that enable support for reverse proxy operation
94- Various test suite improvements. Tests are configured through autoconf,
95  so the test suite now works for builds without Monkeysphere support.
96- Add support for TLS connections to back end servers when operating as a
97  reverse proxy (X.509 authentication only at the moment).
98- PKCS #11 support for server keys and certificates
99- Use strict compiler arguments by default (-Wall -Werror -Wextra)
100- Allow limiting the size of certificates exported as SSL_SERVER_CERT
101  and SSL_CLIENT_CERT through the GnuTLSExportCertificates directive
102
103** Version 0.6 (2014-02-17)
104- Generating DH Params instead of using static ones.
105- Now considering ServerAlias Directives.
106- Major Legacy Code Cleanup.
107- html and pdf and manual documentation generated from markdown sources
108- support monkeysphere validation agent (MSVA) client-certificate verification
109- wider test suite
110- GnuTLSExportCertificates off by default
111
112** Version 0.5.10 (2011-07-12)
113- Patched a bug responsible for excessive memory consumption by mod_gnutls.
114- Support for proxying from SSL to plain HTTP was added (ie. proxy termination).
115
116** Version 0.5.9 (2010-09-24)
117- GnuTLSCache none is now an allowed option.
118- Corrected behavior in Keep-Alive connections (do not
119  terminate the connection prematurely)
120- The GnuTLSCache variable now can be given the specific
121  option "gdbm" instead of "dbm". "dbm" will use the berkeley
122  db type of libapr while gdbm will force gdbm to be used.
123  sdbm is no longer being used due to serious limitations.
124
125** Version 0.5.8 (2010-08-18)
126- Session tickets are enabled by default.
127- Fixes some segmentation faults noticed in some
128  configurations.
129
130** Version 0.5.7 (2010-07-01)
131- Force usage of SDBM. For some reason the default in
132  my system had issues after reaching a limit of entries.
133  SDBM seems stable so force it.
134- Optimizations in session caching.
135- Added support for session tickets. This allows a
136  server to avoid using a session cache and still support
137  session resumption. This is at the cost of transporting
138  session data during handshake. New option
139  GnuTLSSessionTickets [on|off]
140- Depend on gnutls 2.10.0 to force support for safe
141  renegotiation.
142
143** Version 0.5.6 (2010-03-24)
144- Corrected issue with firefox and long POST data (by
145  handling EINTR and EAGAIN errors in read).
146- Added support for chained client certificates
147- Corrected more issues related to double frees
148http://issues.outoforder.cc/view.php?id=102
149
150** Version 0.5.5 (2009-06-13)
151- Removed limits on CA certificate loading. Reported by
152  Sander Marechal and Jack Bates.
153- Do not allow sending empty TLS packets even when instructed to.
154  This had the side effect of clients closing connection.
155
156** Version 0.5.4 (2009-01-04)
157- mod_gnutls.h: modified definition to extern to avoid compilation
158  errors in darwin.
159- Added patch to fix issue with mod_proxy. Investigation and patch by Alain
160  Knaff.
161- libgnutls detection uses pkg-config.
162
163** Version 0.5.3 (2008-10-16)
164- Corrected bug to allow having an OpenPGP-only web site.
165- Increased Max handshake tries due to interrupted system calls.
166
167** Version 0.5.2 (2008-06-29)
168- Depend on gnutls 2.4 which has openpgp support in main library.
169
170** Version 0.5.1 (2008-03-05)
171- Added --disable-srp configure option
172- Better check for memcache (patch by Guillaume Rousse)
173- Corrected possible memory leak in DBM support for resuming sessions.
174
175** Version 0.5.0-alpha (2008-01-24)
176- Added support for OpenPGP keys. The new directives are:
177  GnuTLSPGPKeyringFile, GnuTLSPGPCertificateFile, GnuTLSPGPKeyFile
178
179** Version 0.4.2 (2007-12-10)
180- Added support for sending a certificate chain.
181- Corrected bug which did not allow the TLS session cache to be used.
182- Do not allow resuming sessions on different servers.
183
184** Version 0.4.1 (2007-12-03)
185- Added support for subject alternative names in certificates.
186Only one per certificate is supported.
187- New enviroment variables: SSL_CLIENT_M_VERSION, SSL_CLIENT_S_SAN%,
188SSL_CLIENT_S_TYPE, SSL_SERVER_M_VERSION, SSL_SERVER_S_SAN%, SSL_SERVER_S_TYPE
189- The compatibility mode can now be enabled explicitely with the
190%COMPAT keyword at the GnuTLSPriorities string. It is no longer the default.
191- Check for GnuTLSPriorities directive. This corrects a segfault. Thanks
192to David Hrbáč.
193- Better handling of GnuTLSDHFile and GnuTLSRSAFile.
194- No longer default paths for RSA and DH parameter files.
