Release: 1.3.4 (Released 11th January 1999)
Apache 1.3.4 is the current stable release. Users of Apache
1.3.3 and earlier should look at upgrading to this version.
Read the Guide to
1.3.4 for information about changes between 1.3.3 and
1.3.4 and between 1.2 and 1.3.4.
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.
In some circumstances the configuration files in the
conf directory are
not installed. This can occur if the computer needs to be
rebooted because a system DLL file was updated. For now a
work-around is to re-install Apache again after the reboot,
since the DLL will not need to be installed again. PR#3988.
Patches for bugs in Apache 1.3.4 will be made available in
the apply_to_1.3.4 subdirectory of the patches
directory on the Apache site. Some new features and other
unofficial patches are available in the 1.3
patches directory. For details of all previously reported
bugs, see the Apache bug
database and known
bugs pages. Many common configuration questions are
answered in the Apache FAQ.
The next version of Apache will have two new features
available for custom log formats. The first will be that \t
and \n can be used to insert a tab or newline into the log
format. The second is that %V will log the name of the virtual
host according to the setting of UseCanonicalName, which may be
useful for mass virtual hosting. This makes %V work the same way that
%v worked before it was
fixed in Apache 1.3.4.
