Changes for APR 1.4.5

  *) Security: CVE-2011-1928
     apr_fnmatch(): Fix high CPU loop.  [William Rowe]

  *) Fix top_builddir in installed  [Bojan Smojver]

Changes for APR 1.4.4

  *) Windows: Fix command-line builds.  [William Rowe]

Changes for APR 1.4.3

  *) Security: CVE-2011-0419
     Reimplement apr_fnmatch() from scratch using a non-recursive
     algorithm; now has improved compliance with the fnmatch() spec.
     [William Rowe]

  *) Fix environment-related crash using some non-standard builds on
     Windows 7/Server 2008.  [Steve Hay <SteveHay>]

  *) poll, pollset, pollcb on Windows: Handle calls with no file/socket
     descriptors.  PR 49882.  [Stefan Ruppert <sr>, Jeff Trawick]

  *) Fix APR_IPV6_V6ONLY issues on Windows related to run-time behavior 
     on Windows older than Vista and SDK/MinGW levels without IPV6_V6ONLY.
     PR 45321.  [Sob <sob>]

  *) Fix address handling when accepting an AF_INET socket from a socket
     bound as AF_INET6.   PR 49678.  [Joe Orton]

  *) Fix error return values from apr_sockaddr_info_get() on Windows for
     IPv6 builds.  [Ivan Zhakov <ivan>]

  *) Add new experimental configure option --enable-allocator-uses-mmap to
     use mmap instead of malloc in apr_allocator_alloc(). This greatly reduces
     memory fragmentation with malloc implementations (e.g. glibc) that
     don't handle allocationss of a page-size-multiples in an efficient way.
     It also makes apr_allocator_max_free_set() actually have some effect
     on such platforms. [Stefan Fritsch]

  *) configure: Support 64 and 32 bit universal builds for Darwin/
     OS X 10.6+. [Jim Jagielski]

  *) apr_sockaddr_info_get() on AIX: Fix a problem which could set
     the port field in the native socket address to 1 when 0 was
     specified.  PR 46964.  [Jeff Trawick]

  *) configure: Make definition of apr_ino_t independent of
     _FILE_OFFSET_BITS even on platforms where ino_t is 'unsigned int'.
     [Stefan Fritsch]

  *) apr_ring: Workaround for aliasing problem that causes gcc 4.5 to
     miscompile some brigade related code. PR 50190. [Stefan Fritsch]

  *) apr_file_flush_locked(): Handle short writes. [Stefan Fritsch]

  *) apr_pollset_create_ex(): Trap errors from pollset providers.
     PR 49094.  [Sami Tolvanen <sami.tolvanen>]

  *) apr_pollset_create*(): Fix memory lifetime problem with the wakeup
     pipe when the pollset was created with APR_POLLSET_NOCOPY.
     [Neil Conway <nrc>]

  *) Fix detection of some Linux variants when configure is built with
     recent GNU tools.  [Eric Covener]

  *) Avoid a redundant fcntl() call in apr_file_open() where O_CLOEXEC
     is supported.  PR 46297.  [Joe Orton]

  *) Improve platform detection by updating config.guess and config.sub.
     [Rainer Jung]

Changes for APR 1.4.2

  *) Undo a crash-bug introduced in 1.4.1 affecting some applications of 
     the apr hash and table structures, reported to affect Subversion
     by Bert Huijben <bert>.  [Graham Leggett]

Changes for APR 1.4.1

  *) Win32: Properly handle the ERROR_DIRECTORY system error code.
     [Brane Čibej]

Changes for APR 1.4.0

  *) Windows: Default build configurations assume NT or higher at run-time. 

  *) Add apr_global_mutex_lockfile() for retrieving the file, if any,
     associated with the mutex.  Add apr_global_mutex_name() for retrieving
     the name of the lock mechanism used by the underlying proc mutex.
     [Jeff Trawick]

  *) Add apr_socket_atreadeof to determine whether the receive part of the
     socket has been closed by the peer.
     [Ruediger Pluem, Mladen Turk, Joe Orton]

  *) Make apr_pollset and apr_pollcb implementations using providers.
     Added apr_pollset_create_ex and apr_pollcb_create_ex that allows
     choosing non-default providers.
     [Mladen Turk]

  *) Win32: Use WSAPoll as default pollset method if supported and found
     inside winsock dll.  [Mladen Turk]

  *) apr_temp_dir_get() now checks the TMPDIR environment variable first,
     instead of third.  [Jim Jagielski]

  *) Add apr_file_sync() and apr_file_datasync() calls.  [Bojan Smojver]

  *) apr_pollset_wakeup() on Windows: Fix core caused by closing the
     file_socket_pipe with standard file_close. 
     [Arsen Chaloyan, Mladen Turk]

  *) Introduce apr_hash_do() for iterating over a hash table.  [Mladen Turk]

  *) Make sure WIN32 behaves the same as posix for file-backed shared memory 
     by removing the file on cleanup/remove.  [Mladen Turk]

  *) Introduce apr_pollset_wakeup() for interrupting the blocking
     apr_pollset_poll() call.  [Mladen Turk]

  *) Add apr_file_link() function.  PR 44841.  [Mark Heily <mark>]
