1.4.25 - the slogan is a lie

November 21, 2009

We did some important bug fixes (some of them new since 1.4.24, and some older bugs). Only 2 small new features: traceback for lua errors and the SSL_CLIENT_* vars export for ssl client cert validation.

Update: There is a small regression in mod_magnet, see #1307

We finally added TLS SNI, and many other small improvements. We also fixed pipelining (that should fix problem with lighty as debian mirror) and some mod_fastcgi bugs – this should result in improved handling of overloaded and crashed backends (you know which one :D).

Important changes

  • Connection state handling (pipelining should work now)
  • FastCGI fixes: improved disabled-time handling, fixed bug in active-backends counter.
  • TLS SNI support

Time for a new release: spawn-fcgi is now going its own ways in an independent project (hence the release slogan; see http://redmine.lighttpd.net/projects/spawn-fcgi), wsgi applications in / should work now (use the fastcgi/scgi option “fix-root-scriptname”) and many other fixes and improvements.
Please note that the “X-Sendfile-Range” header did not make it into 1.4.23, and we will try a more powerful approach for 1.4.24 (see #2008).

Important changes

  • Fix workaround for incorrect path info/scriptname if fastcgi prefix is “/” (fixes #729)
  • Finally removed spawn-fcgi
  • Fix bug with FastCGI request id overflow under high load; just use always id 1 as we don’t use multiplexing. (thx jgray)
  • Workaround broken operating systems: check for trailing ‘/’ in filenames (fixes #1989)
