1** UNRELEASED
2- Use GnuTLS' default DH parameters by default
3- Handle long Server Name Indication data and gracefully ignore
4  unknown SNI types
5- Deprecate OpenPGP support like GnuTLS did (will be removed
6  completely in a future release)
7- Fix documentation of SSL_CLIENT_I_DN
8- Test suite: stability/compatibility fixes
9
10** Version 0.8.2 (2017-01-08)
11- Test suite: Ensure CRLF line ends in HTTP headers
12- Test suite, gen_ocsp_index.c: Handle serial as fixed order byte array
13
14** Version 0.8.1 (2016-12-20)
15- Bugfix: Use APR_SIZE_T_FMT for portable apr_size_t formatting
16
17** Version 0.8.0 (2016-12-11)
18- New: Support for OCSP stapling
19- Bugfix: Access to DBM cache is locked using global mutex
20  "gnutls-cache"
21- Bugfix: GnuTLSSessionTickets is now disabled by default as described
22  in the handbook
23- Fixed memory leak while checking proxy backend certificate
24- Fixed memory leaks in post_config
25- Safely delete session ticket key (requires GnuTLS >= 3.4)
26- Improved error handling in post_config hook
27- Various handbook updates
28- Internal API documentation can be generated using Doxygen
29- Unused code has been removed (conditionals for GnuTLS 2.x and Apache
30  versions before 2.2, internal Lua bytecode structure last used in
31  2011).
32- Test suite: Fixed locking for access to the PGP keyring of the test
33  certificate authority
34- mod_gnutls can be built using Clang (unsupported)
35
36** Version 0.7.5 (2016-05-28)
37- Sunil Mohan Adapa reported retry loops during session shutdown in
38  cleanup_gnutls_session() due to gnutls_bye() incorrectly returning
39  GNUTLS_E_INTERRUPTED or GNUTLS_E_AGAIN. Setting the GnuTLS session
40  errno in mgs_transport_write() fixes the problem.
41- Import Daniel Kahn Gillmor's patches for GnuPG v2 support from the
42  Debian package.
43- Build system improvements that allow VPATH builds and get "make
44  distcheck" to work
45
46** Version 0.7.4 (2016-04-13)
47- Support SoftHSM 2 for PKCS #11 testing
48- Increase verbosity of test logs
49
50** Version 0.7.3 (2016-01-12)
51- Update test suite for compatibility with GnuTLS 3.4, which has
52  stricter key usage checks and priorities than 3.3.
53- Write non-HTML output to mod_status reports if AP_STATUS_SHORT is
54  set (mod_status sets it for requests with the "auto" parameter, e.g.
55  https://localhost/server-status?auto).
56- Register "ssl_is_https" function so the special mod_rewrite variable
57  %{HTTPS} works correctly with mod_gnutls. The new test case for this
58  requires Wget or curl. Fixes Debian bug #514005.
59- Test suite servers listen on IPv4 *and* IPv6 loopback addresses by
60  default (other addresses configurable), which should fix failures
61  due to localhost randomly resolving to either on some distributions.
62- Isolate tests using network namespaces, if possible. This avoids
63  port conflicts with other test cases (so they can run in parallel)
64  and host services.
65- Support for local Apache drop-in config files in the test suite
66  (e.g. to load additional modules needed on Fedora).
67- Try to use markdown to build HTML documentation if pandoc is not
68  available.
69- Disable use of flock if it is unavailable or does not support
70  timeouts (the latter caused the build to fail on Debian Hurd).
71- New test: Disable TLS 1.0 (regression test for Debian bug #754960).
72
73** Version 0.7.2 (2015-11-21)
74- Bugfix: Non-blocking reads in the input filter could lead to a busy
75  wait in the gnutls_io_input_read function, causing high load on
76  Keep-Alive connections waiting for data, until either more data
77  could be received or the connection was closed. The fix is to pass
78  EAGAIN/EINTR results up to the input filter so they can be handled
79  properly.
80- Close TLS session if the input filter receives EOF (mostly relevant
81  for proper termination of proxy connections).
82- Remove dependency on APR Memcache, which is replaced by the newer
83  version included in the APR Utility Library (libaprutil).
84- Remove dependency on bc. It was used for floating point arithmetic
85  in the test suite, the calculations have been changed to use
86  integers and pure bash code.
87
88** Version 0.7.1 (2015-10-18)
89- Improved handling of PKCS #11 modules: mod_gnutls now loads either
90  modules specified using GnuTLSP11Module, or the system defaults, but
91  not both. Thanks to Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos for the report and
92  initial patch!
93- Initialize variables to safe defaults during client certificate
94  verification. Certain error code paths did not set them, but they
95  should never be hit due to config validation. This adds another line
96  of defense.
97- Enable C99 support via autoconf
98- Test suite improvements. Most importantly, automake now handles
99  environment setup without any external make calls. Rules to build
100  the certificates are included from the old test makefile. Note that
101  the dependency on GNU make is not new (the test makefile always used
102  GNU make syntax), it just wasn't listed explicitly.
103
104** Version 0.7 (2015-07-12)
105- Security fix for TLS client authentication (CVE-2015-2091)
106- Bug fixes that enable support for reverse proxy operation
107- Various test suite improvements. Tests are configured through autoconf,
108  so the test suite now works for builds without Monkeysphere support.
109- Add support for TLS connections to back end servers when operating as a
110  reverse proxy (X.509 authentication only at the moment).
111- PKCS #11 support for server keys and certificates
112- Use strict compiler arguments by default (-Wall -Werror -Wextra)
113- Allow limiting the size of certificates exported as SSL_SERVER_CERT
114  and SSL_CLIENT_CERT through the GnuTLSExportCertificates directive
115
116** Version 0.6 (2014-02-17)
117- Generating DH Params instead of using static ones.
118- Now considering ServerAlias Directives.
119- Major Legacy Code Cleanup.
120- html and pdf and manual documentation generated from markdown sources
121- support monkeysphere validation agent (MSVA) client-certificate verification
122- wider test suite
123- GnuTLSExportCertificates off by default
124
125** Version 0.5.10 (2011-07-12)
126- Patched a bug responsible for excessive memory consumption by mod_gnutls.
127- Support for proxying from SSL to plain HTTP was added (ie. proxy termination).
128
129** Version 0.5.9 (2010-09-24)
130- GnuTLSCache none is now an allowed option.
131- Corrected behavior in Keep-Alive connections (do not
132  terminate the connection prematurely)
133- The GnuTLSCache variable now can be given the specific
134  option "gdbm" instead of "dbm". "dbm" will use the berkeley
135  db type of libapr while gdbm will force gdbm to be used.
136  sdbm is no longer being used due to serious limitations.
137
138** Version 0.5.8 (2010-08-18)
139- Session tickets are enabled by default.
140- Fixes some segmentation faults noticed in some
141  configurations.
142
143** Version 0.5.7 (2010-07-01)
144- Force usage of SDBM. For some reason the default in
145  my system had issues after reaching a limit of entries.
146  SDBM seems stable so force it.
147- Optimizations in session caching.
148- Added support for session tickets. This allows a
149  server to avoid using a session cache and still support
150  session resumption. This is at the cost of transporting
151  session data during handshake. New option
152  GnuTLSSessionTickets [on|off]
153- Depend on gnutls 2.10.0 to force support for safe
154  renegotiation.
155
156** Version 0.5.6 (2010-03-24)
157- Corrected issue with firefox and long POST data (by
158  handling EINTR and EAGAIN errors in read).
159- Added support for chained client certificates
160- Corrected more issues related to double frees
161http://issues.outoforder.cc/view.php?id=102
162
163** Version 0.5.5 (2009-06-13)
164- Removed limits on CA certificate loading. Reported by
165  Sander Marechal and Jack Bates.
166- Do not allow sending empty TLS packets even when instructed to.
167  This had the side effect of clients closing connection.
168
169** Version 0.5.4 (2009-01-04)
170- mod_gnutls.h: modified definition to extern to avoid compilation
171  errors in darwin.
172- Added patch to fix issue with mod_proxy. Investigation and patch by Alain
173  Knaff.
174- libgnutls detection uses pkg-config.
175
176** Version 0.5.3 (2008-10-16)
177- Corrected bug to allow having an OpenPGP-only web site.
178- Increased Max handshake tries due to interrupted system calls.
179
180** Version 0.5.2 (2008-06-29)
181- Depend on gnutls 2.4 which has openpgp support in main library.
182
183** Version 0.5.1 (2008-03-05)
184- Added --disable-srp configure option
185- Better check for memcache (patch by Guillaume Rousse)
186- Corrected possible memory leak in DBM support for resuming sessions.
187
188** Version 0.5.0-alpha (2008-01-24)
189- Added support for OpenPGP keys. The new directives are:
190  GnuTLSPGPKeyringFile, GnuTLSPGPCertificateFile, GnuTLSPGPKeyFile
191
192** Version 0.4.2 (2007-12-10)
193- Added support for sending a certificate chain.
194- Corrected bug which did not allow the TLS session cache to be used.
195- Do not allow resuming sessions on different servers.
196
197** Version 0.4.1 (2007-12-03)
198- Added support for subject alternative names in certificates.
199Only one per certificate is supported.
200- New enviroment variables: SSL_CLIENT_M_VERSION, SSL_CLIENT_S_SAN%,
201SSL_CLIENT_S_TYPE, SSL_SERVER_M_VERSION, SSL_SERVER_S_SAN%, SSL_SERVER_S_TYPE
202- The compatibility mode can now be enabled explicitely with the
203%COMPAT keyword at the GnuTLSPriorities string. It is no longer the default.
204- Check for GnuTLSPriorities directive. This corrects a segfault. Thanks
205to David Hrbáč.
206- Better handling of GnuTLSDHFile and GnuTLSRSAFile.
207- No longer default paths for RSA and DH parameter files.
