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