Release: 1.3.0 (Released 6th June 1998) (local download sites)
Apache 1.3.0 is now the current stable release. Users of Apache 1.2.6 and earlier
should look at upgrading to this version, which provides additional features and
has been subject to extensive testing.
The bugs listed below now include a link to the entry in the Apache bug database
where the problem is being tracked. These entries are called "PR"s (Problem Reports).
Some bugs do not correspond to problem reports if they are found by developers.
Bugs in 1.3.0
These bugs have been found in 1.3.0 and will be fixed in 1.3.1. Because of the major
differences between Windows and Unix, these are separated into bugs which affect
Windows systems only, and other bugs (which may affect Windows as well). Unix users
can ignore the bugs listed in the Windows section.
- Compiling Apache 1.3.0 source fails in the rewrite module. There is a patch
available to fix this.
- If a custom log format was defined in the main-server part of the configuration
file, it could not be used in virtual host sections. PR#2090.
- Hostnames or IP numbers were being truncated in the log files. This only
affects people using mod_usertrack to issue cookies to clients, because this
code was truncating the hostname or IP address at the first period (dot) when
a new cookie was issued. PR#2190, PR#2229, PR#2366.
- Apache was converting the Content-Type from CGI scripts to lowercase, which
normally had no effect. However scripts which sent back a server-push boundary
with uppercase characters would not work. PR#2400.
- Updates for QNX, HPUX (for shared objects), SVR4 (when using configure with
maximum number of shared objects), alpha linux and other 64-bit systems (mod_unique_id),
SCO 5 (compilation), NCR (configuration and SIGHUP restarts), NEXTSTEP (compilation).
- Add support for UTS 2.1.2.
- Symbolic links cannot be used above the document root. This only affect
people using the configuration files which came with 1.3.0, which include a
<Directory /> section containing Options None and AllowOverride None. This is
a performance boost because it prevents Apache reading .htaccess files above
the document root, but it also disallowed symbolic links. To enable symbolic
links above the document root, Options None should be changed to Options FollowSymLinks.
