It has been a long time since the last release again, and again we have many bug fixes -
and some small new features, check the following summary or the complete list below.

There have been fixes for ssl (SNI handling and the SSL_CTX_set_options fix) and
mod_cgi and mod_proxy (response handling).

There is a new fdevent handler “libev”; “linux-rtsig” got removed.

And we bind now IPv6 sockets to IPv6 only in almost all cases (we disable “dual-stack”),
see IPv6-Config for details.
