Release Notes: This release fixes a couple of regressions introduced by the previous version. It also adds a translation to Japanese. Upgrading is encouraged.
Release Notes: This release adds support for HSTS (HTTP Strict Transport Security) and fixes a number of different bugs. The TLS/SSL support was improved, as well as the IPv6 support and the multi-IP host management in the reverse HTTP proxy and the FastCGI, uWSGI, and SCGI handlers. This release also fixes a couple of minor (and very unlikely to hit) memory leaks in the server core. Upgrading is encouraged.
Release Notes: Along with the addition of "UNIX socket in a abstract namespace" support and SHA512 hashes for the authentication with MySQL databases, this release fixes a number of important issue. The SSL/TLS support is much more stable that in previous versions, and some minor memory management issues were fixed in a few of the core components of the server. Updating is strongly encouraged.
Release Notes: This version adds support for Cherokee-Market. Applications can now be seamlessly deployed from the market with a couple of mouse clicks. A new configuration file back-up system has also been integrated, so configuration files can be stored and versioned on a remote repository for backup and cluster deployment purposes. Upgrading is greatly encouraged.
Release Notes: This release fixes a number of minor issues, mainly related to Solaris and FreeBSD.
