Feb 19 2006 - 3.2.8 is being tagged 3.2.8 is a security release to fix the possible directory traversal attack in FileSession. Feb 3 2006 - 3.2.7 is being tagged Jan 16 2006 - 3.2.6 final is being tagged (no changes from 3.2.6b) Jan 14 2006 - 3.2.6b is being tagged Nov 15 2005 - 3.2.5b is being tagged Oct 28 2005 - 3.2.4b is being tagged Oct 22 2005 - 3.2.3b is being tagged Sep 13 2005 - 3.2.2b is being tagged Sep 6 2005 - 3.2.1b is being tagged Aug 16 2005 - 3.2.0b is being tagged Feb 17 2004 - 3.1.3 is being tagged Oct 14 2003 - 3.1.1b is tagged Aug 29 2003 - 3.1.0a (Alpha) is out Mar 17 2003 - 3.0.3 is released This file will no longer have details, since those are in CVS anyway. Feb 12 2003 - Added a test for req.headers_out Fixed a bug where None was added to sys.path Tests for connection and server added Jan 18 2003 - Between now and the last entry the following things took place: Problem with loading DSO on Solaris relating to _muldi3 fixed. A problem fixed related to | .ext syntax. An environ issue addressed. Filtering by type should now work correctly. Publisher's code for dealing with file uploads simplified. A windows installer added. Install adopted to use distutils. A cgihandler problem resulting in double output fixed. PyOS_AfterFork() added where needed. The binary produced by MSVC no longer needs any MS dll's. Filter flush() now cleans memory so large files can be processed. Nov 26 2002 - 3.0.1 is about to be released. This was file has not been updated during the 3.0 development because of too many things changing. Nov 28 2001 - Now compiles against Apache 2.0.28 Nov 6 2001 - More internal changes. Bugs from previous change, cleaner reference keeping. Nov 1 2001 - Many internal changes. We no longer use req->notes for things that shouldn't be there, handler directives can be restricted to specific file extensions thereby allowing multiple handlers per directory, etc. The config is now stored in a new hlist object, which can be accessed from python via an hlistobject. Aug 16 2001 - Mod_python is compiling and running with Apache 2.0 and the filter functionality seems to work. There is still a lot of work to be done though. Aug 4 2001 - 2.7.6 released. Sometime prior a publisher upload bug was fixed. Jun 11 2001 - 2.7.5 released for those who want Python 2.1 Jun 11 2001 - Changed configure.in to accomodate Python 2.1. It looks like everything else works without any changes. Jun 4 2001 - 2.7.4 released. May 28 2001 - Renamed make_table, log_error, table_add and copy_table with mp_ so as to not get confused with the ones in ap_compat.h May 24 2001 - PythonNoReload obsoleted in favor of PythonAutoReload. May 23 2001 - The "fix" re import on Apr 10 turned out to be a bug and I put it back. But in the process found that the FLAG directives were not read correctly - e.g. mere presence sometimes indicated On. Also, ReportError was returning DONE in finally clause which was wrong. May 22 2001 - The bug that was supposedly fixed below was a bit more complicated than it seemed at first. The fix below caused a circular reference, and some further fixing had to be done, and now it's really fixed, thanks to Chris's dilligence. May 17 2001 - Fixed a threading bug reported by Chris Trengove where the callback object could have the reference to self.req overwritten by other threads. The reference to the Request object is now stored inside the requestobject C structure. May 12 2001 - 2.7.3 released Apr 10 2001 - Fixed a PythonImport bug reported by Chris Hagner. Removed the atol hack as per Miguel Marques patch. Fixed apache.py to use a messier looking but for some obscure reason that now escapes me necessary way of importing modules via imp. Apr 7 2001 - "Dissapearing args" on Solaris fixed. It was a problem in parse_qsl. Apr 6 2001 - Missing _eprintf() on Solaris/gcc workaround added. I wonder if this applies to other OS's? Apr 5 2001 - A couple doc fixes. Feb 10 2001 - 2.7.2 released Feb 10 2001 - Fixed the dissapearing / in PATH_INFO. Jan 23 2001 - Fixed the bug where req.server.register_cleanup was expecting a builtin _req object rather than the new real Python Request. Jan 21 2001 - The Publisher handler __auth__ can now be a dictionary or. a const. There is also new __access__, which can be a list. Jan 19 2001 - Added req._content_type_set flag which is set to 1 when a value is assigned to content_type from Python. This way the publisher handler can know if it's been purposely set and will not attempt to guess it. Jan 18 2001 - Documented req.form. Fixed a security problem with the Publisher handler - it now does not allow modules to be published, so a user can't access test.os.renames, etc. Dec 18 2000 - 2.7 had a typo in it + win32 wants types initialized separately like I thought. Time for 2.7.1. Dec 16 2000 - Releasing 2.7.... Dec 16 2000 - Found another bug related to ALLOW_THREADS macros which are noops without threads, but that is actually wrong, because what they is needed wvwn without threads. Also, some days ago 2.6.4 was released. Dec 13 2000 - The initial documentation for the util module and for the publisher handler is done. Perhaps the tutorial should have a bit on the publisher handler. Dec 12 2000 - publisher handler appears to be working pretty well. Now need to document it. Dec 11 2000 - It appears I found a big booboo with mispalced #ifdef WITH_THREADS... The "Dispatch returned nothing" should be gone now. This means 2.6.3 has major problems with multiple interpreters. Dec 8 2000 - connection.user now writable. More Doc improvements. Dec 6 2000 - The COPYRIGHT no longer has the advertizing clause. Dec 4 2000 - Initial (not proof-read) LaTeX source for documentation is checked in. Nov 26 2000 - Dilligently migrating all the documentation to LaTeX using the Python standards. Nov 17 2000 - I forgot to uncomment type initialization. type(req.headers_in) would segfault. Fixed. Continuing work on publisher.py module. Nov 08 2000 - read() and reqadline() now behave very much like the standard Python file object counterparts. Added James Gessling's VMS instructions. Nov 07 2000 - Initial version of req.readline(), also some fixes to req.read() (both now raise appropriate errors). Both still need some work. Nov 04 2000 - Implemented _apache.parse_qs. Also, CGIStin had a read() bug. PythonHandlerModule is documented. Oct 30 2000 - Implemented PythonHandlerModule. Still need to document it. Oct 29 2000 - 2.6.3 release. Mostly static install bug fixes. Oct 22 2000 - 2.6.2 release Oct 22 2000 - "Fatal Python error: PyThreadState_Get: no current thread" upon exit is now fixed. Also, --with-python was improved to point to the right Makefile (Modules/Makefile) when scanning for LIBS. Oct 21 2000 - 2.6.1 release Oct 20 2000 - Fixed some minor installation bugs. Oct 19 2000 - 2.6 out Oct 16 2000 - Began a major file reorganization. All objects are now in separate files, and all external functions have an Mp prefix and named consistently with Python C API conventions. Oct 15 2000 - We now use mkdep. Oct 12 2000 - Autoconf now works. Documentation has been adjusted. Also added Windows installation instructions to the docs. Oct 2 2000 - PythonInterpPerServer is now default behavior, and this directive is therefore obsolete. The old default behavior can be achieved via the new PythonInterpPerDirective directive. Sep ? 2000 - Request is now a real python object. This means that it can be used to retain state between requests. Sep 9 2000 - Added server.register_cleanup(). This happened to be a little trickier than I thought since it turned out that server_rec does not have a pool member. Py_Finalze() has been moved to a cleanup from the ChildExit handler because ChildExit runs *before* any cleanups. (Now I know why mod_perl doesn't use child_exit.) Sep 8 2000 - Sean True's fix to call note_basic_auth_failure added. Sep 6 2000 - St�phane Bidoul's Win32 fixes applied. Sep 5 2000 - 2.5 released. Sep 4 2000 - Added the PythonCleanupHandler. Sep 4 2000 - Added req.register_cleanup(). Still need server.register_cleanup(), as well as a PythonCleanupHandler. Sep 2 2000 - Added PythonInterpPerServer directive. Fixed a bug relating to ap_add_version_component. Aug 28 2000 - Added Richard Barret's patch that gives python socket module behaviour from req.connection.local_addr and remote_addr. Aug 27 2000 - Added PythonInitHandler. Also, it looks like dynamic handler addition now works correctly, after trying 15 different ways of implementing it, resorting to req->notes seems to be the only option. Aug 18 2000 - Added req.get_remote_host() Aug 16 2000 - Added Dr. Timochouk's PythonOptimize directive patch. Aug 15 2000 - Extensive improvements to req.read() prompted by Dr. Timochouk's patches. Aug 10 2000 - Documentation change - get_basic_auth_pw must be called before using connection.user. Aug 06 2000 - Table oject now has a new method "add" which allows creation of multiple keys. This is useful with things like "Set-Cookie" headers. Jul 22 2000 - Added req.add_handler (dynamic handler registration) Jul 18 2000 - Added PythonEnablePdb ChildExitHandler now properly calls Py_Finalize() python_handler is now cumulative rather than overriding Jul 04 2000 - 2.4.1 Released. Mostly bug fixes. Should be pretty stable. Jun 20 2000 - 2.4 Released. Jun 17 2000 - Started the tutorial.html. Jun 11 2000 - Stephane Bidoul's thread-safe win32 changes put in. As part of this, all chdir()'s are gone and now instead of '.', the file path is prepended to pythonpath. Jun 8 2000 - 2.3 Released. Jun 7 2000 - PythonImport now works. Jun 5 2000 - PythonDebug and other on/off type handlers are now of type FLAG so they require an argument of On or Off. Apr 2000 - rename to mod_python and go apache-specific. Nov 1998 - support for multiple interpreters introduced. May 1998 - initial release (httpdapy).
