ANNOUNCE: Apache HTTP Server 2.4.9 Released

          Apache HTTP Server 2.4.9 Released

The Apache Software Foundation and the Apache HTTP Server Project
are pleased to announce the release of version 2.4.9 of the Apache
HTTP Server ("Apache").  This version of Apache is our latest GA
release of the new generation 2.4.x branch of Apache HTTPD and
represents fifteen years of innovation by the project, and is
recommended over all previous releases. This release of Apache is
principally a security, feature and bug fix release.

CVE-2014-0098 (cve.mitre.org)
 Segfaults with truncated cookie logging.
 mod_log_config: Prevent segfaults when logging truncated
 cookies. Clean up the cookie logging parser to recognize
 only the cookie=value pairs, not valueless cookies.

CVE-2013-6438 (cve.mitre.org)
 mod_dav: Keep track of length of cdata properly when removing
 leading spaces. Eliminates a potential denial of service from
 specifically crafted DAV WRITE requests

Also in this release are some exciting new features including:

*) Finer control over scoping of RewriteRules
*) Unix Domain Socket (UDS) support for mod_proxy backends.
*) Support for larger shared memory sizes for mod_socache_shmcb
*) mod_lua and mod_ssl enhancements
*) Support named groups and backreferences within the LocationMatch,
 DirectoryMatch, FilesMatch and ProxyMatch directives.

We consider this release to be the best version of Apache available, and
encourage users of all prior versions to upgrade. [NOTE: 2.4.8 was not
released.]

Apache HTTP Server 2.4.9 is available for download from:

http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi

Apache 2.4 offers numerous enhancements, improvements, and performance
boosts over the 2.2 codebase.  For an overview of new features
introduced since 2.4 please see:

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/trunk/new_features_2_4.html

Please see the CHANGES_2.4 file, linked from the download page, for a
full list of changes. A condensed list, CHANGES_2.4.9 includes only
those changes introduced since the prior 2.4 release.  A summary of all 
of the security vulnerabilities addressed in this and earlier releases 
is available:

http://httpd.apache.org/security/vulnerabilities_24.html

This release requires the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) version 1.5.x
and APR-Util version 1.5.x. The APR libraries must be upgraded for all
features of httpd to operate correctly.

This release builds on and extends the Apache 2.2 API.  Modules written
for Apache 2.2 will need to be recompiled in order to run with Apache
2.4, and require minimal or no source code changes.

http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/httpd/httpd/trunk/VERSIONING

When upgrading or installing this version of Apache, please bear in mind
that if you intend to use Apache with one of the threaded MPMs (other
than the Prefork MPM), you must ensure that any modules you will be
using (and the libraries they depend on) are thread-safe.



Dutch PHP Conference 2014

Ibuildings is proud to organise the eighth
Dutch PHP Conference on June 27 and 28,
plus a pre-conference tutorial day on June 26. Both programs will be completely in
English so the only Dutch thing about it is the location.

DPC brings together the best speakers and PHP talent from Europe and beyond
for three days of high-level technical sessions. Our
schedule is already online and
features talks on Redis, Git, HHVM, NGINX, Security, Mocking, PhpSpec 2, Zend
Framework 2, Apache Cassandra, JavaScript testing, Docker and much more.

The tutorial day on Thursday 26th June at the same venue gives an opportunity for a
smaller number of attendees to spend some time with an expert, going in-depth on
particular topics – topics like DDD, Zend Framework 2, Ansible, Apigility, JavaScript
Testing, Laravel, Symfony and more are all on offer.

So come along to our two main conference days on 27th and 28th June and our
tutorial day on 26th June in Amsterdam!
