Apache HTTP Server 2.2.9 Released

 The Apache Software Foundation and the Apache HTTP Server Project are
pleased to announce the release of version 2.2.9 of the Apache HTTP Server ("Apache"). This version of Apache is principally a bug and security fix
 release. The following potential security flaws are addressed:

   * CVE-2008-2364 (cve.mitre.org)
     mod_proxy_http: Better handling of excessive interim responses
     from origin server to prevent potential denial of service and high
     memory usage. Reported by Ryujiro Shibuya.

   * CVE-2007-6420 (cve.mitre.org)
mod_proxy_balancer: Prevent CSRF attacks against the balancer- manager

We consider this release to be the best version of Apache available, and
 encourage users of all prior versions to upgrade.

 corresponding CHANGES files linked from the download page.  The Apache
 HTTP Project developers strongly encourage all users to migrate to
 Apache 2.2, as only limited maintenance is performed on these legacy

 This release includes the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) version 1.3.0
 bundled with the tar and zip distributions.  The APR libraries libapr
and libaprutil (and on Win32, libapriconv) must all be updated to ensure
 binary compatibility and address many known platform bugs.

This release builds on and extends the Apache 2.0 API. Modules written for Apache 2.0 will need to be recompiled in order to run with Apache 2.2,
 and require minimal or no source code changes.

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.
