1**TODO:
2- Handle Unclean Shutdowns
3- make session cache use generic apache caches
4
5** Version 0.7.5 (2016-05-28)
6- Sunil Mohan Adapa reported retry loops during session shutdown in
7  cleanup_gnutls_session() due to gnutls_bye() incorrectly returning
8  GNUTLS_E_INTERRUPTED or GNUTLS_E_AGAIN. Setting the GnuTLS session
9  errno in mgs_transport_write() fixes the problem.
10- Import Daniel Kahn Gillmor's patches for GnuPG v2 support from the
11  Debian package.
12- Build system improvements that allow VPATH builds and get "make
13  distcheck" to work
14
15** Version 0.7.4 (2016-04-13)
16- Support SoftHSM 2 for PKCS #11 testing
17- Increase verbosity of test logs
18
19** Version 0.7.3 (2016-01-12)
20- Update test suite for compatibility with GnuTLS 3.4, which has
21  stricter key usage checks and priorities than 3.3.
22- Write non-HTML output to mod_status reports if AP_STATUS_SHORT is
23  set (mod_status sets it for requests with the "auto" parameter, e.g.
24  https://localhost/server-status?auto).
25- Register "ssl_is_https" function so the special mod_rewrite variable
26  %{HTTPS} works correctly with mod_gnutls. The new test case for this
27  requires Wget or curl. Fixes Debian bug #514005.
28- Test suite servers listen on IPv4 *and* IPv6 loopback addresses by
29  default (other addresses configurable), which should fix failures
30  due to localhost randomly resolving to either on some distributions.
31- Isolate tests using network namespaces, if possible. This avoids
32  port conflicts with other test cases (so they can run in parallel)
33  and host services.
34- Support for local Apache drop-in config files in the test suite
35  (e.g. to load additional modules needed on Fedora).
36- Try to use markdown to build HTML documentation if pandoc is not
37  available.
38- Disable use of flock if it is unavailable or does not support
39  timeouts (the latter caused the build to fail on Debian Hurd).
40- New test: Disable TLS 1.0 (regression test for Debian bug #754960).
41
42** Version 0.7.2 (2015-11-21)
43- Bugfix: Non-blocking reads in the input filter could lead to a busy
44  wait in the gnutls_io_input_read function, causing high load on
45  Keep-Alive connections waiting for data, until either more data
46  could be received or the connection was closed. The fix is to pass
47  EAGAIN/EINTR results up to the input filter so they can be handled
48  properly.
49- Close TLS session if the input filter receives EOF (mostly relevant
50  for proper termination of proxy connections).
51- Remove dependency on APR Memcache, which is replaced by the newer
52  version included in the APR Utility Library (libaprutil).
53- Remove dependency on bc. It was used for floating point arithmetic
54  in the test suite, the calculations have been changed to use
55  integers and pure bash code.
56
57** Version 0.7.1 (2015-10-18)
58- Improved handling of PKCS #11 modules: mod_gnutls now loads either
59  modules specified using GnuTLSP11Module, or the system defaults, but
60  not both. Thanks to Nikos Mavrogiannopoulos for the report and
61  initial patch!
62- Initialize variables to safe defaults during client certificate
63  verification. Certain error code paths did not set them, but they
64  should never be hit due to config validation. This adds another line
65  of defense.
66- Enable C99 support via autoconf
67- Test suite improvements. Most importantly, automake now handles
68  environment setup without any external make calls. Rules to build
69  the certificates are included from the old test makefile. Note that
70  the dependency on GNU make is not new (the test makefile always used
71  GNU make syntax), it just wasn't listed explicitly.
72
73** Version 0.7 (2015-07-12)
74- Security fix for TLS client authentication (CVE-2015-2091)
75- Bug fixes that enable support for reverse proxy operation
76- Various test suite improvements. Tests are configured through autoconf,
77  so the test suite now works for builds without Monkeysphere support.
78- Add support for TLS connections to back end servers when operating as a
79  reverse proxy (X.509 authentication only at the moment).
80- PKCS #11 support for server keys and certificates
81- Use strict compiler arguments by default (-Wall -Werror -Wextra)
82- Allow limiting the size of certificates exported as SSL_SERVER_CERT
83  and SSL_CLIENT_CERT through the GnuTLSExportCertificates directive
84
85** Version 0.6 (2014-02-17)
86- Generating DH Params instead of using static ones.
87- Now considering ServerAlias Directives.
88- Major Legacy Code Cleanup.
89- html and pdf and manual documentation generated from markdown sources
90- support monkeysphere validation agent (MSVA) client-certificate verification
91- wider test suite
92- GnuTLSExportCertificates off by default
93
94** Version 0.5.10 (2011-07-12)
95- Patched a bug responsible for excessive memory consumption by mod_gnutls.
96- Support for proxying from SSL to plain HTTP was added (ie. proxy termination).
97
98** Version 0.5.9 (2010-09-24)
99- GnuTLSCache none is now an allowed option.
100- Corrected behavior in Keep-Alive connections (do not
101  terminate the connection prematurely)
102- The GnuTLSCache variable now can be given the specific
103  option "gdbm" instead of "dbm". "dbm" will use the berkeley
104  db type of libapr while gdbm will force gdbm to be used.
105  sdbm is no longer being used due to serious limitations.
106
107** Version 0.5.8 (2010-08-18)
108- Session tickets are enabled by default.
109- Fixes some segmentation faults noticed in some
110  configurations.
111
112** Version 0.5.7 (2010-07-01)
113- Force usage of SDBM. For some reason the default in
114  my system had issues after reaching a limit of entries.
115  SDBM seems stable so force it.
116- Optimizations in session caching.
117- Added support for session tickets. This allows a
118  server to avoid using a session cache and still support
119  session resumption. This is at the cost of transporting
120  session data during handshake. New option
121  GnuTLSSessionTickets [on|off]
122- Depend on gnutls 2.10.0 to force support for safe
123  renegotiation.
124
125** Version 0.5.6 (2010-03-24)
126- Corrected issue with firefox and long POST data (by
127  handling EINTR and EAGAIN errors in read).
128- Added support for chained client certificates
129- Corrected more issues related to double frees

131
132** Version 0.5.5 (2009-06-13)
133- Removed limits on CA certificate loading. Reported by
134  Sander Marechal and Jack Bates.
135- Do not allow sending empty TLS packets even when instructed to.
136  This had the side effect of clients closing connection.
137
138** Version 0.5.4 (2009-01-04)
139- mod_gnutls.h: modified definition to extern to avoid compilation
140  errors in darwin.
141- Added patch to fix issue with mod_proxy. Investigation and patch by Alain
142  Knaff.
143- libgnutls detection uses pkg-config.
144
145** Version 0.5.3 (2008-10-16)
146- Corrected bug to allow having an OpenPGP-only web site.
147- Increased Max handshake tries due to interrupted system calls.
148
149** Version 0.5.2 (2008-06-29)
150- Depend on gnutls 2.4 which has openpgp support in main library.
151
152** Version 0.5.1 (2008-03-05)
153- Added --disable-srp configure option
154- Better check for memcache (patch by Guillaume Rousse)
155- Corrected possible memory leak in DBM support for resuming sessions.
156
157** Version 0.5.0-alpha (2008-01-24)
158- Added support for OpenPGP keys. The new directives are:
159  GnuTLSPGPKeyringFile, GnuTLSPGPCertificateFile, GnuTLSPGPKeyFile
160
161** Version 0.4.2 (2007-12-10)
162- Added support for sending a certificate chain.
163- Corrected bug which did not allow the TLS session cache to be used.
164- Do not allow resuming sessions on different servers.
165
166** Version 0.4.1 (2007-12-03)
167- Added support for subject alternative names in certificates.
168Only one per certificate is supported.
169- New enviroment variables: SSL_CLIENT_M_VERSION, SSL_CLIENT_S_SAN%,
170SSL_CLIENT_S_TYPE, SSL_SERVER_M_VERSION, SSL_SERVER_S_SAN%, SSL_SERVER_S_TYPE
171- The compatibility mode can now be enabled explicitely with the
172%COMPAT keyword at the GnuTLSPriorities string. It is no longer the default.
173- Check for GnuTLSPriorities directive. This corrects a segfault. Thanks
174to David Hrbáč.
175- Better handling of GnuTLSDHFile and GnuTLSRSAFile.
176- No longer default paths for RSA and DH parameter files.
