Alpha release version 0.8.0-alpha

  • Property mode set to 100644
File size: 8.9 KB
1** Version 0.8.0-alpha (2016-06-21)
2- New: Support for OCSP stapling
3- Bugfix: Access to DBM cache is locked using global mutex
4  "gnutls-cache"
5- Bugfix: GnuTLSSessionTickets is now disabled by default as described
6  in the handbook
7- Fixed memory leak while checking proxy backend certificate
8- Fixed memory leaks in post_config
9- Safely delete session ticket key (requires GnuTLS >= 3.4)
10- Improved error handling in post_config hook
11- Various handbook updates
12- Unused code has been removed (conditionals for GnuTLS 2.x and Apache
13  versions before 2.2, internal Lua bytecode structure last used in
14  2011).
15- Test suite: Fixed locking for access to the PGP keyring of the test
16  certificate authority
17- mod_gnutls can be built using Clang (unsupported)
18- Known Issues:
19  * OCSP cache refresh stalls other requests on the virtual host and
20    other vhosts that need a cache refresh at the same time. Requests
21    to vhosts with a fresh response in the cache or OCSP stapling
22    disabled are not affected.
23  * Rate limiting for OCSP requests is not yet implemented.
24  You can work around both issues using the GnuTLSOCSPResponseFile
25  option.
27** Version 0.7.5 (2016-05-28)
28- Sunil Mohan Adapa reported retry loops during session shutdown in
29  cleanup_gnutls_session() due to gnutls_bye() incorrectly returning
30  GNUTLS_E_INTERRUPTED or GNUTLS_E_AGAIN. Setting the GnuTLS session
31  errno in mgs_transport_write() fixes the problem.
32- Import Daniel Kahn Gillmor's patches for GnuPG v2 support from the
33  Debian package.
34- Build system improvements that allow VPATH builds and get "make
35  distcheck" to work
37** Version 0.7.4 (2016-04-13)
38- Support SoftHSM 2 for PKCS #11 testing
39- Increase verbosity of test logs
41** Version 0.7.3 (2016-01-12)
42- Update test suite for compatibility with GnuTLS 3.4, which has
43  stricter key usage checks and priorities than 3.3.
44- Write non-HTML output to mod_status reports if AP_STATUS_SHORT is
45  set (mod_status sets it for requests with the "auto" parameter, e.g.
46  https://localhost/server-status?auto).
47- Register "ssl_is_https" function so the special mod_rewrite variable
48  %{HTTPS} works correctly with mod_gnutls. The new test case for this
49  requires Wget or curl. Fixes Debian bug #514005.
50- Test suite servers listen on IPv4 *and* IPv6 loopback addresses by
51  default (other addresses configurable), which should fix failures
52  due to localhost randomly resolving to either on some distributions.
53- Isolate tests using network namespaces, if possible. This avoids
54  port conflicts with other test cases (so they can run in parallel)
55  and host services.
56- Support for local Apache drop-in config files in the test suite
57  (e.g. to load additional modules needed on Fedora).
58- Try to use markdown to build HTML documentation if pandoc is not
59  available.
60- Disable use of flock if it is unavailable or does not support
61  timeouts (the latter caused the build to fail on Debian Hurd).
62- New test: Disable TLS 1.0 (regression test for Debian bug #754960).
64** Version 0.7.2 (2015-11-21)
65- Bugfix: Non-blocking reads in the input filter could lead to a busy
66  wait in the gnutls_io_input_read function, causing high load on
67  Keep-Alive connections waiting for data, until either more data
68  could be received or the connection was closed. The fix is to pass
69  EAGAIN/EINTR results up to the input filter so they can be handled
70  properly.
71- Close TLS session if the input filter receives EOF (mostly relevant
72  for proper termination of proxy connections).
73- Remove dependency on APR Memcache, which is replaced by the newer
74  version included in the APR Utility Library (libaprutil).
75- Remove dependency on bc. It was used for floating point arithmetic
76  in the test suite, the calculations have been changed to use
77  integers and pure bash code.
79** Version 0.7.1 (2015-10-18)
80- Improved handling of PKCS #11 modules: mod_gnutls now loads either
81  modules specified using GnuTLSP11Module, or the system defaults, but
82  not both. Thanks to Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos for the report and
83  initial patch!
84- Initialize variables to safe defaults during client certificate
85  verification. Certain error code paths did not set them, but they
86  should never be hit due to config validation. This adds another line
87  of defense.
88- Enable C99 support via autoconf
89- Test suite improvements. Most importantly, automake now handles
90  environment setup without any external make calls. Rules to build
91  the certificates are included from the old test makefile. Note that
92  the dependency on GNU make is not new (the test makefile always used
93  GNU make syntax), it just wasn't listed explicitly.
95** Version 0.7 (2015-07-12)
96- Security fix for TLS client authentication (CVE-2015-2091)
97- Bug fixes that enable support for reverse proxy operation
98- Various test suite improvements. Tests are configured through autoconf,
99  so the test suite now works for builds without Monkeysphere support.
100- Add support for TLS connections to back end servers when operating as a
101  reverse proxy (X.509 authentication only at the moment).
102- PKCS #11 support for server keys and certificates
103- Use strict compiler arguments by default (-Wall -Werror -Wextra)
104- Allow limiting the size of certificates exported as SSL_SERVER_CERT
105  and SSL_CLIENT_CERT through the GnuTLSExportCertificates directive
107** Version 0.6 (2014-02-17)
108- Generating DH Params instead of using static ones.
109- Now considering ServerAlias Directives.
110- Major Legacy Code Cleanup.
111- html and pdf and manual documentation generated from markdown sources
112- support monkeysphere validation agent (MSVA) client-certificate verification
113- wider test suite
114- GnuTLSExportCertificates off by default
116** Version 0.5.10 (2011-07-12)
117- Patched a bug responsible for excessive memory consumption by mod_gnutls.
118- Support for proxying from SSL to plain HTTP was added (ie. proxy termination).
120** Version 0.5.9 (2010-09-24)
121- GnuTLSCache none is now an allowed option.
122- Corrected behavior in Keep-Alive connections (do not
123  terminate the connection prematurely)
124- The GnuTLSCache variable now can be given the specific
125  option "gdbm" instead of "dbm". "dbm" will use the berkeley
126  db type of libapr while gdbm will force gdbm to be used.
127  sdbm is no longer being used due to serious limitations.
129** Version 0.5.8 (2010-08-18)
130- Session tickets are enabled by default.
131- Fixes some segmentation faults noticed in some
132  configurations.
134** Version 0.5.7 (2010-07-01)
135- Force usage of SDBM. For some reason the default in
136  my system had issues after reaching a limit of entries.
137  SDBM seems stable so force it.
138- Optimizations in session caching.
139- Added support for session tickets. This allows a
140  server to avoid using a session cache and still support
141  session resumption. This is at the cost of transporting
142  session data during handshake. New option
143  GnuTLSSessionTickets [on|off]
144- Depend on gnutls 2.10.0 to force support for safe
145  renegotiation.
147** Version 0.5.6 (2010-03-24)
148- Corrected issue with firefox and long POST data (by
149  handling EINTR and EAGAIN errors in read).
150- Added support for chained client certificates
151- Corrected more issues related to double frees
154** Version 0.5.5 (2009-06-13)
155- Removed limits on CA certificate loading. Reported by
156  Sander Marechal and Jack Bates.
157- Do not allow sending empty TLS packets even when instructed to.
158  This had the side effect of clients closing connection.
160** Version 0.5.4 (2009-01-04)
161- mod_gnutls.h: modified definition to extern to avoid compilation
162  errors in darwin.
163- Added patch to fix issue with mod_proxy. Investigation and patch by Alain
164  Knaff.
165- libgnutls detection uses pkg-config.
167** Version 0.5.3 (2008-10-16)
168- Corrected bug to allow having an OpenPGP-only web site.
169- Increased Max handshake tries due to interrupted system calls.
171** Version 0.5.2 (2008-06-29)
172- Depend on gnutls 2.4 which has openpgp support in main library.
174** Version 0.5.1 (2008-03-05)
175- Added --disable-srp configure option
176- Better check for memcache (patch by Guillaume Rousse)
177- Corrected possible memory leak in DBM support for resuming sessions.
179** Version 0.5.0-alpha (2008-01-24)
180- Added support for OpenPGP keys. The new directives are:
181  GnuTLSPGPKeyringFile, GnuTLSPGPCertificateFile, GnuTLSPGPKeyFile
183** Version 0.4.2 (2007-12-10)
184- Added support for sending a certificate chain.
185- Corrected bug which did not allow the TLS session cache to be used.
186- Do not allow resuming sessions on different servers.
188** Version 0.4.1 (2007-12-03)
189- Added support for subject alternative names in certificates.
190Only one per certificate is supported.
191- New enviroment variables: SSL_CLIENT_M_VERSION, SSL_CLIENT_S_SAN%,
193- The compatibility mode can now be enabled explicitely with the
194%COMPAT keyword at the GnuTLSPriorities string. It is no longer the default.
195- Check for GnuTLSPriorities directive. This corrects a segfault. Thanks
196to David Hrbáč.
197- Better handling of GnuTLSDHFile and GnuTLSRSAFile.
198- No longer default paths for RSA and DH parameter files.
