      mod_negotiation: Escape filenames in variant list to prevent an
      possible XSS for a site where untrusted users can upload files to

  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:


  Please see the CHANGES_2.4 file, linked from the download page, for a
  full list of changes. A condensed list, CHANGES_2.4.3 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:


  This release requires the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) version 1.4.x
  and APR-Util version 1.4.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.


  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.

  NOTE to Windows users: The issues with AcceptFilter None replacing
       Win32DisableAcceptEx appears to have resolved starting with version
       2.4.3 make Apache httpd 2.4.x suitable for Windows servers.
