PR 34053. [Paul Querna]
*) Switch to lazy initialization of the pollset that's used within
apr_file_t on platforms where apr_wait_for_io_or_timeout() doesn't
use poll(2). (This fixes a performance problem observed in httpd-2.x
on OS X due to the use of poll now being disabled by default on that
platform.) [Brian Pane]
*) Fix Pollset corruption on Solaris 10. [Paul Querna]
*) Add %pt support to apr_snprintf() for printing an apr_os_thread_t
in hex format. [Jeff Trawick]

BSDs which have uuid_create as part of their libc. [Paul Querna]
*) Added Solaris 10 'Event Ports' as a backend for APR Pollset. This
backend also supports the APR_POLLSET_THREADSAFE flag. [Paul Querna]
*) Added the APR_POLLSET_THREADSAFE flag. This allows multiple threads
to call the Pollset Add or Remove functions in a thread safe manner.
Currently only EPoll and KQueue support this flag. [Paul Querna]
*) Split poll/unix/poll.c into separate files for each Poll or Pollset
implementation. [Paul Querna]

*) Add command type APR_SHELLCMD_ENV for creating a process
which is started by the shell and which inherits the parent's
environment variables. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Don't try to enable run-time linking on AIX < 4.2, as this
results in invalid linker options being used. PR 29170.

[Jeff Trawick, Joe Orton, Colm MacC<63>rthaigh <colm>]
*) Support setuid, setgid and sticky file permissions bits on Unix.
[Andr<64> Malo]
*) Fix sign error in apr_file_seek(APR_END).
[Greg Hudson <ghudson MIT.EDU>]
*) Provide workaround for socklen_t declaration problem with 64-bit
build on HP-UX. Stop setting a PA-RISC-specific compile option
on ia64. Look for -mt thread option, which is used with HP-UX
vendor compiler on ia64. [Jeff Trawick, based on idea from
Madhusudan Mathihalli]
*) Return an error instead of silently failing when apr_poll() is
used with file descriptors >= FD_SETSIZE. (Unix systems with
no native poll()) [Jeff Trawick, Brad Nicholes]
*) Fix handling of negative numbers in apr_strtoi64() on platforms
without strtoll. [Joe Orton]
*) Fix printing apr_int64_t values smaller than LONG_MIN on 32-bit
platforms in apr_vformatter. [Joe Orton]

[Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Fix apr_time_exp_get() for dates in 2038.
[Philip Martin <philip>]
*) Add APR_LARGEFILE flag to allow opening files with the
O_LARGEFILE flag; not recommended for general use, see
include/apr_file_io.h. [Joe Orton]
*) Various build fixes: thread_rwlock.c on some Solaris platforms
(PR 22990); filestat.c on ReliantUnix (PR 22990); config.status
on IRIX (PR 19251). [Various]
APR_CHECK_GETNAMEINFO_IPV4_MAPPED. PR 24469. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Ensure that apr_sockaddr_info_get() does not return anything
other than AF_INET and AF_INET6 addresses. [Joe Orton]
*) Clarify that apr_dir_read() does not guarantee order of returned
entries as previously claimed. [Joe Orton]
*) The whole codebase was relicensed and is now available under
the Apache License, Version 2.0 (
[Apache Software Foundation]
*) Define apr_off_t as long rather than as off_t on platforms with a
32-bit off_t to prevent incompatibility with packages such as
Perl which redefine the size of off_t via _FILE_OFFSET_BITS on
some platforms. [Ben Reser <ben>]
*) apr_socket_connect(): allow app to make subsequent call on
non-blocking socket. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Add apr_os_pipe_put_ex(), which allows the caller to tell APR
to establish a cleanup on the pipe. [Jeff Trawick, Brad Nicholes]
*) Fix make_exports.awk to work with apr-iconv. [Justin Erenkrantz]
Changes with APR 0.9.4
*) win32: fix apr_file_dup() and apr_file_dup2() to dup the

[Colm MacC<63>rthaigh <colm>, Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Change the behavior of unix process 'trylock's to return
APR_ENOTIMPL instead of segfaulting, consistent with the
other lock implementations. [William Rowe]
*) Fix a subtle race where the ownership of a unix nested
thread lock could be corrupted when the prior owner released
the lock with another thread waiting on the same lock.
[William Rowe]
*) apr_socket_data_set(): allow the same key to be used for
multiple sockets in the same pool. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Add new table function apr_table_compress() and replace
red-black trees with mergesort in apr_table_overlap()
[Joe Schaefer <joe+gmane>, Brian Pane]
*) Win32: Adopt Brian Havard's OS/2 rwlock implementation for
Windows [Marc Adkins, Bill Stoddard]
*) Add apr_proc_mutex_lockfile() for retrieving the name of the
file associated with a mutex. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Don't require the lock file name to be passed into
apr_proc_mutex_child_init() or apr_global_mutex_child_init().
This allows child init to work when the lock file was a temp
file created by APR. (The problem only occurred with flock-
based mutexes.) [Jeff Trawick]
*) When using a temporary file for flock- and fcntl-based mutexes,
don't let the file be deleted on close. For flock-based mutexes,
this corrects a fatal problem, since the file would disappear
when a program was spawned and cleanup-for-exec was performed,
and a subsequent attempt to perform child process mutex
initialization would fail. For fcntl-based mutexes, this was a
very minor issue that resulted in a failing unlink() when the
file was closed, since fcntl lock initialization always removes
the file immediately. [Jeff Trawick]
*) When writing to pipes with a timeout set, handle the situation
where the kernel says the pipe is writable but an attempt to
write <= PIPE_BUF bytes gets EAGAIN. APR will now write whatever
data will fit. APR applications that relied on the atomic nature
of relatively small pipe write requests may be affected.
PR 20295 [Mark Street <mark>, Jeff Trawick]
*) Define _THREAD_SAFE for all compilations on AIX. Previously
those of us who used the vendor compiler had it defined
implicitly and others did not. The difference became obvious
with the recent thread safety fixes to apr_password_validate().
PR 20420 [Jeff Trawick]
*) For apr_proc_detach(APR_PROC_DETACH_FOREGROUND), don't treat
a setsid() failure as fatal, as the usual cause is that the
caller is already a process group leader. PR 18519
[Jeff Trawick]
*) Fix some problems with non-blocking socket handling on unix
that resulted in infinite timeouts being used for non-blocking
sockets with apr_socket_connect() and some read/write calls.
[Jeff Trawick]
*) Fix a bug in socket timeout handling on unix that left the
socket non-blocking after disabling the timeout.
[Jacob Craig Lewallen <jlewalle>]
*) Added flag APR_FILE_ATTR_HIDDEN for manipulating the "hidden"
file attribute on Windows and OS/2. [Branko Cibej]
*) SECURITY [CAN-2003-0245]: Fixed a bug that could be triggered
remotely through mod_dav and possibly other mechanisms, causing
an Apache child process to crash. The crash was first reported
by David Endler <DEndler> and was researched and
fixed by Joe Orton <jorton>. Details will be released
on 30 May 2003.
*) apr_proc_wait(): Handle interrupted waitpid(2) calls by calling
it repeatedly until it succeeds or fails with errno other than
EINTR. This hides this UNIX-specific behavior from APR clients.
*) Removed the solaris-specific atomic code, due to licence
concerns (it was MPL 1.0, and the author could not be contacted)
[Ian Holsman]
*) apr_file_gets(): Return APR_SUCCESS if any characters are
returned. Any I/O errors or EOF will be reported on the
next call. Callers that are coded to expect returned
data + APR_EOF when there is no final newline are affected
by this change. [Jeff Trawick]
*) apr_proc_create() on Unix: Make the APR_SHELLCMD mode work
when there is more than one program argument passed in.
[Jeff Trawick]
*) Add --cc and --cpp flags to apr-config. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Don't segfault trying to close a file in error paths of flock
and fcntl mutex creation. PR 19036 [Jeff Trawick]
*) Add %pT support to apr_snprintf() for printing an apr_os_thread_t.
[Jeff Trawick]
[Allan Edwards]
*) Add APR_UINT64_T_HEX_FMT. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Add parameter to APR_SUBDIR_CONFIG to drop options passed to configure
before the subdir's configure is invoked.
[Jeff Trawick, Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Implement APR_SO_RCVBUF socket option on Unix.
[Adam Sussman <myddryn>]
*) Don't add the math library (-lm) if the modf() function
is already available via libc. [Roy Fielding]
*) Solaris cc: Don't use the -mt option for threaded builds. That
is for non-Posix threading, and the use of it prevented us from
linking with -lpthread, which in turn caused weird problems for
APR applications. [Kristofer Spinka <kspinka>]
*) OS/2: apr_stat() fixes - When a character device is stat'ed,
fill in if it was asked for. Return APR_INCOMPLETE
when appropriate. Addresses httpd incident [CAN-2003-0134].
[Brian Havard]
Changes with APR 0.9.3
*) Don't enable posixsem, at build time, on systems where sem_t *
won't "fit" into an int (sizeof-wise). Also, better error handling
when we fail to create a posixsem. PR 17186 [Scott Herod

*) Define APR_UINT64_T_FMT and APR_UINT64_T_FMT_LEN.
Define APR_INT64_T_FMT_LEN on Windows and Netware. [Branko Cibej]
*) Correct apr_file_gets() on OS2 and Win32 so that '\r's are no longer
eaten, and apr_file_gets() -> apr_file_puts() moves the contents
uncorrupted. [William Rowe]
*) Alter Win32's handling of the apr_proc_t hproc member, so that we
close that system handle wherever an apr function would invoke the
final waitpid() against a zombie process on Unix. [William Rowe]
*) APR_MAX_SECONDS_TO_LINGER and APR_FNM_* #defines replace their
old undecorated names (missing APR_ prefix). The old names will
disappear with APR 1.0.0.
[Craig Rodrigues <>, William Rowe]
*) When generating a semaphore name for posixsem locking, try to
be a little more robust (and unique). [Jim Jagielski]
*) Add functions apr_env_get, apr_env_set and apr_env_delete for
manipulating the environment. [Branko Cibej]
*) Fix APR_LAYOUT to work with layout files with no preceding blank lines
and emit errors when layout is not found. PR 15679.
[Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Add functions apr_filepath_list_split and apr_filepath_list_merge
for managing search paths. [Branko Cibej]
*) Introduce Release mode debugging symbols for Win32 builds of apr.
All library builds gain /Zi for debug symbols (which are discarded
at link time if some flavor of the /debug flag isn't passed to link)
and .dll builds gain .pdb symbols. [Allen Edwards, William Rowe]
*) Add two new proc attributes to improve diagnostics for
apr_proc_create() failures on platforms where fork()+exec() is used.
See the doc for apr_procattr_child_errfn_set() and
apr_procattr_error_check_set(). [Jeff Trawick]

to run the parent's code if setrlimit() fails. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Disable apr_socket_sendfile() on 64-bit AIX to avoid an apparent
system problem. PR 11408. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Add --includedir flag to apr-config. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Only include sys/syslimits.h if we don't have limits.h

*) Changed apr_mmap_dup() and friends so that there's no longer any
is_owner concept on the mmaped region, but rather something more
along the lines of a reference count. This allows the old apr_mmap_t
to still be used safely when the new apr_mmap_t is in a disjoint pool.

*) Add APR_IPV6_V6ONLY socket option. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Update timeout algorithm in free_proc_chain. If a subprocess
did not exit immediately, the thread would sleep for 3 seconds
before checking the subprocess exit status again. In a very
common case when the subprocess was an HTTP server CGI script,
the CGI script actually exited a fraction of a second into the 3
second sleep, which effectively limited the server to serving one
CGI request every 3 seconds across a persistent connection.

thread mutexes are not nested (sometimes called "recursive"). To
enable nested mutexes, a flag must be passed to the init script.
Non-nested mutexes are much faster than nested ones.

not unlinked until they are actually closed, rather than as
soon as they're opened. The old approach worked but made
handling temp files harder. [Cliff Woolley]
*) Fix potential segfault when closing a file on Unix. If
apr_file_close() was called and it failed, it would not
deregister the file cleanup. Therefore the cleanup would
be run again later on a now-invalid descriptor. [Cliff Woolley]
*) Introduce apr_pool_lock for debugging, in combination with
on Win32 today, very effective for debugging pool constness.
[William Rowe]
*) Optimize apr_pstrcat by caching lengths of first 6 strings
[Brian Pane <>]
*) Add pool accessors to the apr_thread_mutex_t datatype.
[Aaron Bannert <>]
*) Add the apr_file_mktemp function. This creates and opens a
temporary file, for use by the program. This file is created
delete_on_close. The initial implementation only works on
Unix, but Windows is coming soon. [Ryan Bloom]
*) Make the unix version of apr_proc_wait_all_procs a simple wrapper
around apr_proc_wait, and which extracts the exit code from the
status returned by waitpid.
[Kevin Pilch-Bisson <>]
*) Add process locking API to APR. [Aaron Bannert <>]
*) Add condition variables for Windows. [Ryan Bloom]
*) Add condition variables to the APR set of locking functions.
This does Unix, and provides stubs for all other platforms.
[Aaron Bannert <>]
*) Don't search for IPv6 names in apr_sockaddr_info_get() if the
application doesn't specify the family (i.e., the application
passes in AF_UNSPEC) and APR isn't built with IPv6 support.
[Jeff Trawick]
*) Fix the API for the apr_proc_create() call on Win32. Several
bad assumptions are gone, including a mismatch between unix and
win32, where win32 was defaulting to create detached. Also fixes
the apr_proc_t's pid member to a real pid (identity that works
across processes) instead of the handle (which is a new hproc
member value.) [William Rowe]
*) Modify the external apr_filepath_get() fn to take a flags arg,
currently only for APR_FILEPATH_NATIVE. This returns c:\foo
format on Win32, and should do the same on OS2, or sys\vol:\foo
on Netware. Primarily for internals, but possibly useful to
others (and it mirrors some of the other apr_filepath_*() calls.)
[William Rowe]
*) Add the new thread read/write lock API to APR.
[Aaron Bannert <>]
*) Add the new thread mutex lock API to APR.
[Aaron Bannert <>]
*) Cache GMT offset on platforms that don't store it in the tm struct.
This offset is normalized to be independent of daylight savings
time. [Brian Pane <>]
*) Initial support for cygwin. [Stipe Tolj <>]
*) Fix a problem with buffered files on Unix. [Brian Havard]
*) Fix the bungling of getaddrinfo() error codes. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Add an apr_thread_once function to APR. This allows a
program to ensure that a function is only called once.
[Ryan Bloom]
*) APR Documentation is now in Doxygen format.
[Ian Holsman]
*) Get apr_ungetc() to work with buffered files on Unix.
[Jeff Trawick]
*) Fixed apr_filepath_root on Unix [William Rowe, Cliff Woolley].
*) Rename XtOffset to APR_XtOffset. This namespace protection
is important to keep from conflicting with other packages.
*) Introduce a new --disable-ipv6 option to disable IPv6 support.
[Sterling Hughes <>, Jeff
*) Fix the new shared memory code. We need to pass a pointer to
an apr_file_t to apr_file_open. Also, apr_os_file_get returns
a status value, not the OS file descriptor. [Ryan Bloom]
*) Fix the new shared memory configure script. The APR_DECIDE
macros go in order, so the last set of dependancies that are
met are the ones used. That means that when using those macros,
options should be listed with the least desirable option first,
and the most desirable last. The new shared memory routines did
the opposite, so we chose the wrong shared memory option on Linux.
[Ryan Bloom]
*) Move the necessary shared memory code from MM into APR and remove
our dependency upon MM. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Get apr_lock_file and apr_unlock_file working on Windows 9x.
[Mladen Turk, Bill Stoddard]
*) Make all APR pools be allocated out of the permanent pool.
This brings APR pools back to a tree structure. There are
no longer any way to create a pool that is not a decendant
of the permanent_pool. [Ryan Bloom]
*) Wrap all functions in APR_DECLARE macro.
[Sterling Hughes <>]
*) Non-blocking connects shouldn't be calling connect a second
time. According to Single Unix, a non-blocking connect has
succeeded when the select pops successfully. It has failed
if the select failed. The second connect was causing 502's
in the httpd-proxy. [John Barbee]
*) Fix apr_dir_rewind() for Win32 to avoid returning a bogus error.
[Jeff Trawick, William Rowe]
*) Detect required libraries first. This minimizes the libraries
needed in apr_hints.m4. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Support the AIX, glibc2, and Solaris variants of gethostby{name|addr}_r.
Use gethostbyaddr_r function when available.
[Sterling Hughes <>]
*) Add new socket option, APR_INCOMPLETE_READ, that should be
set when you expect the first non-blocking read to fail with
EAGAIN. Setting APR_INCOMPLETE_READ prior to calling apr_read
will cause select() to be called first to wait for bytes
to read. [Brian Pane, Dean Gaudet]
*) Better installation. This makes us install the APRVARS file,
as well as MM. [Ryan Bloom]
*) Provide new number conversion functions apr_itoa, apr_ltoa, and
apr_off_t_toa, and inline code in inet_ntop4, to reduce CPU
consumption. [Brian Pane]
*) Updated APR to pass the thread worker_function prototype
(apr_thread_start_t) two parameters, the apr private data
(apr_thread_t*) and the application private data (void*).
Applications' worker_thread() routines may use apr_thread_pool_get
to access the pool (implemented using APR_POOL_*_ACCESSOR() macros.)
[Aaron Bannert <>]
*) Add Solaris 8's sendfilev() support. This requires the following
patches from Sun: 111297 (Sparc), 111298 (x86). You'll need the
other patches listed in the patch description. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Close file descriptor when we are done with fcntl or flock-based
cross-process lock. Otherwise, we leak descriptors.
[Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Fix a possible data corruption problem with the use of getpwnam_r() on
all platforms where that function is used.
Use getpwnam_r() and getgrgid_r() instead of getpwnam() and getgrgid()
with threaded builds on glibc (2.1, at least) to avoid thread safety
issues. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Added apr_lock_tryacquire. It will attempt to acquire the lock, but
will not block if it can not acquire the lock. Returns APR_EBUSY if
acquistion can not happen. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Added an inherit flag to apr_socket_create and other socket creation
functions. This allows APR programs to specify that a socket should
be passed to any child processes that are created. The inherit flag
is only meaningful if programs use apr_process_create(). This
also adds a couple of macros that allow APR types to set and unset
the inherit flag. [Ryan Bloom]
*) apr_connect()on Windows: Handle timeouts and returning the proper
status code when a connect is in progress. [Bill Stoddard]
*) apr_connect() on Unix: Handle EINTR during connect(). Handle timeouts.
[Jeff Trawick]
*) Handle the weird case where getpwnam() returns NULL but errno is zero.
[Jeff Trawick]
*) Add apr_file_flags_get() which returns the flags that were originally
passed in to apr_file_open(). [Cliff Woolley]
*) Added APR_HAS_XTHREAD_FILES macro that indicates whether or not the
platform handles files opened in APR_XTHREAD mode natively. Currently
only Win32 has such native support. [Cliff Woolley]
*) Fix gmt offset handling on Solaris. Apache log messages now show
local time again. PR #7902 [Taketo Kabe <>]
*) apr_pstrcat() optimizations [Doug MacEachern, Jeff Trawick]
*) Make the apr_pool_is_ancestor logic public. This is required for
some new logic that is going into HTTPD. I have left the join logic
in that function debug only. [Ryan Bloom]
*) Clean up Win32 locks when the pool goes away.
[Justin Erenkrantz, Jeff Trawick]
*) Implement apr_get_home_directory for Win32. [William Rowe]
*) Complete the implementation of LARGEFILE support on Win32, although
the mmap semantics still need a touch of work. [William Rowe]
*) Fix the APR_XTHREAD support, and apr_sendfile mechanics, so we can
handle cross-threaded file handles on Win32. [William Rowe]
*) Implement APR_READWRITE locks on Unix with POSIX rwlocks.
Introduce new apr_lock_acquire_rw() function which takes in
APR_READER or APR_WRITER. [Justin Erenkrantz]
*) Add apr_open_stdin. This mirrors apr_open_stderr, except it works
on stdin. [Aaron Bannert <>]
*) Add apr_strtok(), a thread-safe flavor of strtok() which has the
same interface as strtok_r(). [Jeff Trawick]
*) Add other child support to Win32 [Bill Stoddard]
*) Other-child registrations are automatically removed when the
associated pool is destroyed. This avoids garbage in the list
of registrations when a pool with a registration is freed.
[Jeff Trawick]
*) Allow LTFLAGS to be overridden by the configure command-line
(default="--silent") and introduce LT_LDFLAGS. [Roy Fielding]
*) Add memory code kindly donated to APR by
Elrond <>
Luke Kenneth Casson Leighton <>
Sander Striker <>
[David Reid]
*) Fix a problem with the FreeBSD flavor of apr_sendfile() where we
could return APR_EAGAIN+bytes_sent. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Fix a problem on unixware where clearing h_errno wouldn't work.
Use set_h_errno() instead. PR #7651 [Jeff Trawick]
*) Add the test and build directories (when present) to the recursive
make process, being sure that they are run last. test is only done
recursively for make *clean targets. [Roy Fielding]
*) Make the apr_mmap_create() function use the native_flags variable.
This allows us to actually create WRITEABLE MMAPs.
[Ed Korthof <>]
*) Completely revamp configure so that it preserves the standard make
the configure additions to EXTRA_* variables. Also, allow the user
to specify NOTEST_* values for all of the above, which eliminates the
need for THREAD_CPPFLAGS, THREAD_CFLAGS, and OPTIM. Fix the setting
of INCLUDES and EXTRA_INCLUDES. Check flags as they are added to
avoid pointless duplications. Fix the order in which flags are given
on the compile and link lines. [Roy Fielding]
*) Fix DSO code on HP/UX. We have to use == not =, and it makes more
sense to actually return errno, so that the return code means
something. [Ryan Bloom]
*) Clean up conditionals in unix DSO code so that we decide based on
the dynamic loading implementation, which we noticed at configure
time, instead of by operating system.
[Wilfredo Sanchez]
*) Add DSO support for dyld platforms (Darwin/Mac OS and OpenStep).
[Wilfredo Sanchez]
*) Amend the time code to better deal with time zones.
[David Reid]
*) Carefully select an appropriate native type for apr_int64_t and
define its format as APR_INT64_T_FMT and literal using APR_INT64_C().
[Justin Erenkrantz, William Rowe]
*) Make clean, distclean, and extraclean consistently according to the
Gnu makefile guidelines. [Justin Erenkrantz <>]
*) Initial implementation of of apr_filepath (get/set/parse_root and
merge) for Windows. [William Rowe]
*) Cleaned up implementation of of apr_filepath (get/set/parse_root
and merge) for Unix. [Greg Stein, William Rowe]
*) Fixup the --enable-libtool option. This allows the test directory
to compile again. The test directory still doesn't work when
APR is configured without libtool. [Ryan Bloom]
*) If we don't have sigwait() in the system, see if sigsuspend() is
available, and use that instead. [Wilfredo Sanchez]
*) Make libtool optional at configure time. This is done with
--disable-libtool. [Ryan Bloom]
*) Recognize systems where the TCP_NODELAY setting is inherited from
the listening socket, and optimize apr_setsockopt(APR_TCP_NODELAY)
accordingly. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Recognize the presence of getnameinfo() on Tru64. [David Reid]
*) Allow APR to be installed. [Ryan Bloom]
*) Generate config.nice for easy re-run of configure. [Roy Fielding]
*) Define preprocessor flags in CPPFLAGS instead of CFLAGS and
bring some sanity to the compiler command-lines. [Roy Fielding]
*) Use the dso/aix subdirectory for older versions of AIX and fix
a number of bugs in the dso code in that directory.
[Victor Orlikowski]
*) Allow libtool 1.3b to be used. [Victor Orlikowski]
*) Misc. Win32 fixes: Set the pool pointer in apr_sockaddr_t
structures created with the apr_socket_t to prevent segfault
in certain apps. Flush unwritten buffered data when the file
is closed. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Win32: Get APR to compile with MSVC 5.0 (a.k.a. VC97).
PR #7489 [Jeff Trawick]
*) First draft implementation of apr_filepath (get/set/parse_root
and merge) for Unix. [William Rowe]
*) Add apr_ipsubnet_create() and apr_ipsubnet_test() for testing
whether or not an address is within a subnet. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Add apr_sendto and apr_recvfrom for Unix. Start of adding UDP
support. [David Reid]
*) Add a method to get the password from the system for a given
user. [John Barbee <>]
*) Change the include path order, so that we look for included files
in the APR paths first, and the system paths second.
[jean-frederic clere <>]
*) Add a with-sendfile option, so that people on platforms without a
sendfile implementation for APR can easily disable it from the
configure line. [Ryan Bloom]
*) Change the check for netinet/tcp.h to work around an issue with
that header file on IRIX 6.5 which prevented it from being
detected. PR #6459 [Jeff Trawick]
*) Introduce apr_get_userid to return a named user's apr_uid_t and
apr_gid_t across platforms [Cliff Woolley, William Rowe]
*) In apr_shm_init(), check the retcode from mm_malloc(). Previously,
we segfaulted here if mm_malloc() failed to get a lock. An example
error scenario is when the lock file lives on a filesystem which
doesn't support locking. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Name protected the autoconf macros defined by APR. Moved the
REENTRANCY_FLAGS settings into apr_hints.m4. Inlined the
APR_PREPARE_MM_DIR macro because it could only be used once.
Removed the unused macros MY_TRY_RUN, MY_TRY_RUN_NATIVE, and
AC_USE_FUNCTION. Added some macro comments. [Roy Fielding]
*) Cope with BSDi installations where the default make has been
replaced with GNU make. [Joe Orton <>]
*) Changed apr/helpers to apr/build to be consistent with other Apache
source trees. Added make variables to that point to the
builders directory and its scripts. Updated buildconf,,
and files to create and use the new scripts. Moved scandoc
to and its template to
[Roy Fielding]
*) Updated config.guess and config.sub to GNU libtool 1.3.5 features,
with the Apache additions for OS/390 and OS/2 emx. [Roy Fielding]
*) Moved hints.m4, apr_common.m4, and helpers/apr-conf.m4 into the
new build directory as apr_hints.m4, apr_common.m4, apr_network.m4,
and apr_threads.m4. [Roy Fielding]
*) Get apr_sendfile() working on HP-UX. This gets APR to build on
HP-UX without having to turn off APR_HAS_SENDFILE. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Force FreeBSD to compile without threads by default. To enable
threads, use --enable-threads on the configure line.
[Ryan Bloom]
*) Purge system password buffer before returning from apr_password_get.
No longer abuses bufsize argument on return. [William Rowe]
*) Moved the prototypes for apr_snprintf and apr_vsnprintf to the
apr_strings.h header, from apr_lib.h. This location makes more
sense. [Ryan Bloom]
*) Added the APR_TRY_COMPILE_NO_WARNING configure macro for testing a
compile with -Werror as well as the APR_CHECK_ICONV_INBUF macro to
test for annoying iconv prototype differences.
[Jeff Trawick, Roy Fielding]
*) Fix a problem with configure on NetBSD. We must include sys/types.h
for some platforms. [jun-ichiro hagino <>]
*) Some fixes in the Win32 time support.
(IsLeapYear): New macro for quickly figgerin' out if a given year is a
leap year. (SystemTimeToAprExpTime): Perform the calculation of
tm_yday. Also, negate the sign of the tm_gmtoff field to be
consistent with Unix platforms and APR header file comments.
[Mike Pilato]
*) Implement WinNT Unix'ish permissions. [William Rowe]
*) Corrected an OS2'ism of apr_get_home_directory. OS2 now returns the
proper directory, including the user's name.
*) Removed private os2errno.h and integrated the OS2 network error codes
into apr_errno.h for optimized error tests (APR_STATUS_IS_EFOO(rv)).
[William Rowe]
*) Moved inclusion of <os2.h> header from multiple modules into apr.h
[William Rowe]
*) Added apr_compare_users() and apr_compare_groups() for more complex
apr_uid_t and apr_gid_t structures. Enabled both .user and .group
results from WinNT/2000 stat/getfileinfo, but expect to find that
.group is 'None' in most cases. [William Rowe]
*) Replace configure --with-optim option by using the environment
variable OPTIM instead. This is needed because configure options
do not support multiple flags separated by spaces. [Roy Fielding]
*) Eliminate the APR_SIG* aliases for standard signal names,
since they serve no useful purpose. [Roy Fielding]
*) Abstracted apr_get_username and apr_get_groupname for unix and win32.
Modified Win32 apr_uid_t and apr_gid_t to use PSIDs, and elimintated
the uid_t and gid_t definitions. [William Rowe]
*) Radically refactored apr_stat/lstat/getfileinfo/dir_read for Win32
to assure we are retrieving what we expect to retrieve, and reporting
the correct result (APR_SUCCESS or APR_INCOMPLETE). The potential
for a bit more optimization still remains. [William Rowe]
*) While we have the future opportunity to cache the apr_stat'ed file
handle for a very fast open (dup handle) on Win32, patched to close
that file after a stat always. Needs a new semantic before we leave
handles dangling when the user intends to rm. [William Rowe]
*) Correct Win32 apr_stat/lstat/getfileinfo/dir_read to all zero out
the finfo buffer on success (or incomplete success). [William Rowe]
*) Fix Win32/Unix apr_lstat to throw the .valid bit APR_FINFO_LINK to
indicate we attempted to open the link. Only the .filetype APR_LNK
reflects if the file found was, in fact, a link. [William Rowe]
*) Fixed apr_open and apr_rename to function on Win9x.
[Mike Pilato <>]
*) Add apr_open_stdout. This mirrors apr_open_stderr, except it works
on stdout. [Mike Pilato <>]
*) Fix bug in file_io/unix/dir.c. There is no such thing as a dirent,
it must be a struct dirent.
[Kevin Pilch-Bisson <>]
*) Fix the configure script so that we can build from a different
directory. [Kevin Pilch-Bisson <>]
*) Introduce the wanted flag argument to the apr_stat/lstat/getfileinfo
family of functions. This change allows the user to determine what
platform-specific file information is retrieved, to optimize both
portability and performance. [William Rowe]
*) Fix make depend. [Ryan Bloom]
*) All dso implementations now register a cleanup to unload the DSO
when it is loaded. If the pool is removed, we really do need to
remove the DSO. In the past, different platforms behaved differently
it this respect. [Ryan Bloom]
*) Add linkage declarations to the DSO code.
[Gregory Nicholls <>]
*) Some adjustment of hints.m4 setting flags (used to check if null
first) and added some verbosity. [Jim Jagielski]
*) Specify APR_DECLARE to some of the APR functions. This helps linking
on some operating systems. [Gregory Nicholls <>]
*) Libtool'ized APR and converted all the makefiles to share rules
from helpers/ [Greg Stein]
*) Remove a warning on FreeBSD. FreeBSD defines TCP_NO_PUSH, but we
don't actually use it. This causes os_cork to be defined but not
used. This patch keeps us from defining os_cork and os_uncork on
FreeBSD. [Ryan Bloom]
*) Keep apr_terminate from seg faulting on terminate. This is
happening on systems that do not NULL out locks when they are
destroyed. To keep this from happening, we set the locks to
NULL after destroying them in apr_terminate, and we have to
check for NULL in free_blocks.
[Allan Edwards and Gregory Nicholls <>]
*) Remove the ability to allocate memory out of a NULL pool.
[Ryan Bloom]
*) Add an APR_GET_POOL macro to get a pool from any APR type that has
a pool. This requires that ALL apr types put the pool as the first
field in their structure. [Ryan Bloom]
*) Begin to remove the ability to allocate out of NULL pools. The first
problem to solve, is that we need an apr_lock in order to allocate
pools, so that we can lock things out when allocating. So, how do we
allocate locks without a pool to allocate from? The answer is to create
a global_apr_pool, which is a bootstrapping pool. There should NEVER
be a sub-pool off this pool, and it is static to an APR file. This is
only used to allow us to allocate the locks cleanly, without using the
NULL pool hack. [Ryan Bloom]
*) Fix a logic error in the poll code when implemented using select.
[Nick Caruso <>]
*) FreeBSD does not support sendfile() in combination with threads
before version 4.2. We no longer even try to support it.
[Ryan Bloom]
*) On FreeBSD, it is possible for the first call to sendfile to
get EAGAIN, but still send some data. This means that we cannot
call sendfile and then check for EAGAIN, and then wait and call
sendfile again. If we do that, then we are likely to send the
first chunk of data twice, once in the first call and once in the
second. If we are using a timed write, then we check to make sure
we can send data before trying to send it. [Ryan Bloom]
*) Cleanup to help Apache support programs build cleanly.
[Cliff Woolley <>]
*) Cleanup some compiler warnings on Solaris
[Dale Ghent <>]
*) apr_getaddrinfo() can now return multiple addresses for a host
via the next field in apr_sockaddr_t. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Tighten up the check for getaddrinfo(). If it can't figure out
the appropriate address family for, it fails.
Unfortunately, Tru64 fails this test so we won't do IPv6 on
Tru64. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Rename apr_opendir to apr_dir_open. [Ryan Bloom]
*) apr_snprintf()'s %pI format string now takes apr_sockaddr_t *
instead of sockaddr_in *. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Fix a bug in apr_accept() for Win32 and Unix where the local
apr_sockaddr_t in the new connected socket was not initialized
properly. This could result in a bad string for apr_get_ipaddr(),
among other things. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Add apr_getnameinfo(), a replacement for apr_get_hostname() which
supports IPv6 and will be friendlier for use with eventual
SOCK_DGRAM support. apr_get_hostname() is gone. [Jeff Trawick]
Changes with APR a9
*) Removed the iconv implementation from the i18n/unix/iconv branch.
This now resides in the apr-iconv repository, and will be ported
over time to use native apr types (e.g. apr_dso) for portability.
*) Only support IPv6 if we have sockaddr_in and a working
getaddrinfo(). [Jeff Trawick]
*) Add apr_parse_addr_port() for parsing the hostname:port portion
of URLs and similar strings. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Add Win32 MMAP support [William Rowe]
*) Allow the APR programmer to specify if the MMAP is read-only or
[Ryan Bloom and Will Rowe]
*) Check more carefully for getaddrinfo(). Accept those that
require <netdb.h> to be included (e.g., Tru64). Reject those that
fail a very basic operational test (e.g., AIX). [Jeff Trawick]
*) Add apr_make_os_sock() for constructing a fully-capable APR
socket. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Make APR's shared memory routines always allocate enough memory
for the requested segment, the MM internal types, and the APR
internal types.
[Ryan Bloom]
*) Add APR_SIZE_T_FMT. Get the other APR_xx_T_FMT variables
defined properly on AIX. [Jeff Trawick]
*) network API changes: get rid of apr_get_socket_inaddr(),
apr_get_remote_name(), and apr_get_local_name() [Jeff Trawick]
*) Add a step at configure time to create a file at the top-level,
apr.exports, which lists every function exported by APR. The
file is generated by a script in helpers, that reads each header
[Ryan Bloom]
*) Lock config changes: Detect SysV sem capability by the presence of
sempaphore functions, not by the presence of union semun. New
config variable apr_lock_method can override autodetection of the
apr_lock implementation method. For now, hints.m4 uses it to select
SysV semaphores for OS/390. New config variable
apr_process_lock_is_global specifies that the selected inter-process
lock method is sufficient for APR_LOCKALL (i.e., it blocks all
threads and processes). For now, hints.m4 turns on this flag for
OS/390. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Get APR_OFF_T_FMT defined properly on Solaris Sparc.
[Jeff Trawick]
Changes with APR a8
*) Change the name of the sa_len field in apr_sockaddr_t to salen.
Some platforms have a macro named sa_len.
[Tony Finch]
*) apr_set_port(), apr_get_port(), apr_set_ipaddr(), and apr_get_ipaddr()
now take apr_sockaddr_t as a parameter instead of apr_socket_t +
apr_interface_e. This will allow the same routines to be used with
datagram APIs to be added later. Note that code which calls
apr_set_ipaddr() should probably be changed to call apr_getaddrinfo()
for protocol independence. [Jeff Trawick]
*) apr_create_tcp_socket() has been removed. Use apr_create_socket()
instead. [Jeff Trawick]
*) Source was moved from the apache-2.0 repository. For all CHANGES
prior to this time, please see the apache-2.0 repository
