Release version 0.7.2

  • Property mode set to 100644
File size: 6.1 KB
2- Handle Unclean Shutdowns
3- make session cache use generic apache caches
5** Version 0.7.2 (2015-11-21)
6- Bugfix: Non-blocking reads in the input filter could lead to a busy
7  wait in the gnutls_io_input_read function, causing high load on
8  Keep-Alive connections waiting for data, until either more data
9  could be received or the connection was closed. The fix is to pass
10  EAGAIN/EINTR results up to the input filter so they can be handled
11  properly.
12- Close TLS session if the input filter receives EOF (mostly relevant
13  for proper termination of proxy connections).
14- Remove dependency on APR Memcache, which is replaced by the newer
15  version included in the APR Utility Library (libaprutil).
16- Remove dependency on bc. It was used for floating point arithmetic
17  in the test suite, the calculations have been changed to use
18  integers and pure bash code.
20** Version 0.7.1 (2015-10-18)
21- Improved handling of PKCS #11 modules: mod_gnutls now loads either
22  modules specified using GnuTLSP11Module, or the system defaults, but
23  not both. Thanks to Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos for the report and
24  initial patch!
25- Initialize variables to safe defaults during client certificate
26  verification. Certain error code paths did not set them, but they
27  should never be hit due to config validation. This adds another line
28  of defense.
29- Enable C99 support via autoconf
30- Test suite improvements. Most importantly, automake now handles
31  environment setup without any external make calls. Rules to build
32  the certificates are included from the old test makefile. Note that
33  the dependency on GNU make is not new (the test makefile always used
34  GNU make syntax), it just wasn't listed explicitly.
36** Version 0.7 (2015-07-12)
37- Security fix for TLS client authentication (CVE-2015-2091)
38- Bug fixes that enable support for reverse proxy operation
39- Various test suite improvements. Tests are configured through autoconf,
40  so the test suite now works for builds without Monkeysphere support.
41- Add support for TLS connections to back end servers when operating as a
42  reverse proxy (X.509 authentication only at the moment).
43- PKCS #11 support for server keys and certificates
44- Use strict compiler arguments by default (-Wall -Werror -Wextra)
45- Allow limiting the size of certificates exported as SSL_SERVER_CERT
46  and SSL_CLIENT_CERT through the GnuTLSExportCertificates directive
48** Version 0.6 (2014-02-17)
49- Generating DH Params instead of using static ones.
50- Now considering ServerAlias Directives.
51- Major Legacy Code Cleanup.
52- html and pdf and manual documentation generated from markdown sources
53- support monkeysphere validation agent (MSVA) client-certificate verification
54- wider test suite
55- GnuTLSExportCertificates off by default
57** Version 0.5.10 (2011-07-12)
58- Patched a bug responsible for excessive memory consumption by mod_gnutls.
59- Support for proxying from SSL to plain HTTP was added (ie. proxy termination).
61** Version 0.5.9 (2010-09-24)
62- GnuTLSCache none is now an allowed option.
63- Corrected behavior in Keep-Alive connections (do not
64  terminate the connection prematurely)
65- The GnuTLSCache variable now can be given the specific
66  option "gdbm" instead of "dbm". "dbm" will use the berkeley
67  db type of libapr while gdbm will force gdbm to be used.
68  sdbm is no longer being used due to serious limitations.
70** Version 0.5.8 (2010-08-18)
71- Session tickets are enabled by default.
72- Fixes some segmentation faults noticed in some
73  configurations.
75** Version 0.5.7 (2010-07-01)
76- Force usage of SDBM. For some reason the default in
77  my system had issues after reaching a limit of entries.
78  SDBM seems stable so force it.
79- Optimizations in session caching.
80- Added support for session tickets. This allows a
81  server to avoid using a session cache and still support
82  session resumption. This is at the cost of transporting
83  session data during handshake. New option
84  GnuTLSSessionTickets [on|off]
85- Depend on gnutls 2.10.0 to force support for safe
86  renegotiation.
88** Version 0.5.6 (2010-03-24)
89- Corrected issue with firefox and long POST data (by
90  handling EINTR and EAGAIN errors in read).
91- Added support for chained client certificates
92- Corrected more issues related to double frees
95** Version 0.5.5 (2009-06-13)
96- Removed limits on CA certificate loading. Reported by
97  Sander Marechal and Jack Bates.
98- Do not allow sending empty TLS packets even when instructed to.
99  This had the side effect of clients closing connection.
101** Version 0.5.4 (2009-01-04)
102- mod_gnutls.h: modified definition to extern to avoid compilation
103  errors in darwin.
104- Added patch to fix issue with mod_proxy. Investigation and patch by Alain
105  Knaff.
106- libgnutls detection uses pkg-config.
108** Version 0.5.3 (2008-10-16)
109- Corrected bug to allow having an OpenPGP-only web site.
110- Increased Max handshake tries due to interrupted system calls.
112** Version 0.5.2 (2008-06-29)
113- Depend on gnutls 2.4 which has openpgp support in main library.
115** Version 0.5.1 (2008-03-05)
116- Added --disable-srp configure option
117- Better check for memcache (patch by Guillaume Rousse)
118- Corrected possible memory leak in DBM support for resuming sessions.
120** Version 0.5.0-alpha (2008-01-24)
121- Added support for OpenPGP keys. The new directives are:
122  GnuTLSPGPKeyringFile, GnuTLSPGPCertificateFile, GnuTLSPGPKeyFile
124** Version 0.4.2 (2007-12-10)
125- Added support for sending a certificate chain.
126- Corrected bug which did not allow the TLS session cache to be used.
127- Do not allow resuming sessions on different servers.
129** Version 0.4.1 (2007-12-03)
130- Added support for subject alternative names in certificates.
131Only one per certificate is supported.
132- New enviroment variables: SSL_CLIENT_M_VERSION, SSL_CLIENT_S_SAN%,
134- The compatibility mode can now be enabled explicitely with the
135%COMPAT keyword at the GnuTLSPriorities string. It is no longer the default.
136- Check for GnuTLSPriorities directive. This corrects a segfault. Thanks
137to David Hrbáč.
138- Better handling of GnuTLSDHFile and GnuTLSRSAFile.
139- No longer default paths for RSA and DH parameter files.
