1**TODO:
2- Handle Unclean Shutdowns
3- make session cache use generic apache caches
4
5** Version 0.7.4 (2016-04-13)
6- Support SoftHSM 2 for PKCS #11 testing
7- Increase verbosity of test logs
8
9** Version 0.7.3 (2016-01-12)
10- Update test suite for compatibility with GnuTLS 3.4, which has
11  stricter key usage checks and priorities than 3.3.
12- Write non-HTML output to mod_status reports if AP_STATUS_SHORT is
13  set (mod_status sets it for requests with the "auto" parameter, e.g.
14  https://localhost/server-status?auto).
15- Register "ssl_is_https" function so the special mod_rewrite variable
16  %{HTTPS} works correctly with mod_gnutls. The new test case for this
17  requires Wget or curl. Fixes Debian bug #514005.
18- Test suite servers listen on IPv4 *and* IPv6 loopback addresses by
19  default (other addresses configurable), which should fix failures
20  due to localhost randomly resolving to either on some distributions.
21- Isolate tests using network namespaces, if possible. This avoids
22  port conflicts with other test cases (so they can run in parallel)
23  and host services.
24- Support for local Apache drop-in config files in the test suite
25  (e.g. to load additional modules needed on Fedora).
26- Try to use markdown to build HTML documentation if pandoc is not
27  available.
28- Disable use of flock if it is unavailable or does not support
29  timeouts (the latter caused the build to fail on Debian Hurd).
30- New test: Disable TLS 1.0 (regression test for Debian bug #754960).
31
32** Version 0.7.2 (2015-11-21)
33- Bugfix: Non-blocking reads in the input filter could lead to a busy
34  wait in the gnutls_io_input_read function, causing high load on
35  Keep-Alive connections waiting for data, until either more data
36  could be received or the connection was closed. The fix is to pass
37  EAGAIN/EINTR results up to the input filter so they can be handled
38  properly.
39- Close TLS session if the input filter receives EOF (mostly relevant
40  for proper termination of proxy connections).
41- Remove dependency on APR Memcache, which is replaced by the newer
42  version included in the APR Utility Library (libaprutil).
43- Remove dependency on bc. It was used for floating point arithmetic
44  in the test suite, the calculations have been changed to use
45  integers and pure bash code.
46
47** Version 0.7.1 (2015-10-18)
48- Improved handling of PKCS #11 modules: mod_gnutls now loads either
49  modules specified using GnuTLSP11Module, or the system defaults, but
50  not both. Thanks to Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos for the report and
51  initial patch!
52- Initialize variables to safe defaults during client certificate
53  verification. Certain error code paths did not set them, but they
54  should never be hit due to config validation. This adds another line
55  of defense.
56- Enable C99 support via autoconf
57- Test suite improvements. Most importantly, automake now handles
58  environment setup without any external make calls. Rules to build
59  the certificates are included from the old test makefile. Note that
60  the dependency on GNU make is not new (the test makefile always used
61  GNU make syntax), it just wasn't listed explicitly.
62
63** Version 0.7 (2015-07-12)
64- Security fix for TLS client authentication (CVE-2015-2091)
65- Bug fixes that enable support for reverse proxy operation
66- Various test suite improvements. Tests are configured through autoconf,
67  so the test suite now works for builds without Monkeysphere support.
68- Add support for TLS connections to back end servers when operating as a
69  reverse proxy (X.509 authentication only at the moment).
70- PKCS #11 support for server keys and certificates
71- Use strict compiler arguments by default (-Wall -Werror -Wextra)
72- Allow limiting the size of certificates exported as SSL_SERVER_CERT
73  and SSL_CLIENT_CERT through the GnuTLSExportCertificates directive
74
75** Version 0.6 (2014-02-17)
76- Generating DH Params instead of using static ones.
77- Now considering ServerAlias Directives.
78- Major Legacy Code Cleanup.
79- html and pdf and manual documentation generated from markdown sources
80- support monkeysphere validation agent (MSVA) client-certificate verification
81- wider test suite
82- GnuTLSExportCertificates off by default
83
84** Version 0.5.10 (2011-07-12)
85- Patched a bug responsible for excessive memory consumption by mod_gnutls.
86- Support for proxying from SSL to plain HTTP was added (ie. proxy termination).
87
88** Version 0.5.9 (2010-09-24)
89- GnuTLSCache none is now an allowed option.
90- Corrected behavior in Keep-Alive connections (do not
91  terminate the connection prematurely)
92- The GnuTLSCache variable now can be given the specific
93  option "gdbm" instead of "dbm". "dbm" will use the berkeley
94  db type of libapr while gdbm will force gdbm to be used.
95  sdbm is no longer being used due to serious limitations.
96
97** Version 0.5.8 (2010-08-18)
98- Session tickets are enabled by default.
99- Fixes some segmentation faults noticed in some
100  configurations.
101
102** Version 0.5.7 (2010-07-01)
103- Force usage of SDBM. For some reason the default in
104  my system had issues after reaching a limit of entries.
105  SDBM seems stable so force it.
106- Optimizations in session caching.
107- Added support for session tickets. This allows a
108  server to avoid using a session cache and still support
109  session resumption. This is at the cost of transporting
110  session data during handshake. New option
111  GnuTLSSessionTickets [on|off]
112- Depend on gnutls 2.10.0 to force support for safe
113  renegotiation.
114
115** Version 0.5.6 (2010-03-24)
116- Corrected issue with firefox and long POST data (by
117  handling EINTR and EAGAIN errors in read).
118- Added support for chained client certificates
119- Corrected more issues related to double frees

121
122** Version 0.5.5 (2009-06-13)
123- Removed limits on CA certificate loading. Reported by
124  Sander Marechal and Jack Bates.
125- Do not allow sending empty TLS packets even when instructed to.
126  This had the side effect of clients closing connection.
127
128** Version 0.5.4 (2009-01-04)
129- mod_gnutls.h: modified definition to extern to avoid compilation
130  errors in darwin.
131- Added patch to fix issue with mod_proxy. Investigation and patch by Alain
132  Knaff.
133- libgnutls detection uses pkg-config.
134
135** Version 0.5.3 (2008-10-16)
136- Corrected bug to allow having an OpenPGP-only web site.
137- Increased Max handshake tries due to interrupted system calls.
138
139** Version 0.5.2 (2008-06-29)
140- Depend on gnutls 2.4 which has openpgp support in main library.
141
142** Version 0.5.1 (2008-03-05)
143- Added --disable-srp configure option
144- Better check for memcache (patch by Guillaume Rousse)
145- Corrected possible memory leak in DBM support for resuming sessions.
146
147** Version 0.5.0-alpha (2008-01-24)
148- Added support for OpenPGP keys. The new directives are:
149  GnuTLSPGPKeyringFile, GnuTLSPGPCertificateFile, GnuTLSPGPKeyFile
150
151** Version 0.4.2 (2007-12-10)
152- Added support for sending a certificate chain.
153- Corrected bug which did not allow the TLS session cache to be used.
154- Do not allow resuming sessions on different servers.
155
156** Version 0.4.1 (2007-12-03)
157- Added support for subject alternative names in certificates.
158Only one per certificate is supported.
159- New enviroment variables: SSL_CLIENT_M_VERSION, SSL_CLIENT_S_SAN%,
160SSL_CLIENT_S_TYPE, SSL_SERVER_M_VERSION, SSL_SERVER_S_SAN%, SSL_SERVER_S_TYPE
161- The compatibility mode can now be enabled explicitely with the
162%COMPAT keyword at the GnuTLSPriorities string. It is no longer the default.
163- Check for GnuTLSPriorities directive. This corrects a segfault. Thanks
164to David Hrbáč.
165- Better handling of GnuTLSDHFile and GnuTLSRSAFile.
166- No longer default paths for RSA and DH parameter files.
