Version 1.4.20 of HAproxy

Release Notes: A number of annoying issues (some old) were fixed. All 1.4 users are encouraged to upgrade. Zero-weight servers won't take requests from the backend queue anymore. A fix for an issue where releasing a server connection would not result in picking a new one from the queue. POST requests smaller than the buffer could sometimes be delayed by 200ms. The TCP segment merging mechanism has been improved to ensure that outgoing segments are always merged even with wrapping chunks.

Release Notes: This new version addresses half of the remaining changes before -final. use_backend now supports log-format expressions. Maps and ACLs now share the same pattern lists which are dynamically updatable from the CLI. SSL supports ALPN and Web sites now load faster thanks to dynamic record size adjustments. Compression of chunked HTTP responses was fixed and enabled again. Other minor features were added and about 35 bugs were fixed.

Release Notes: Two major changes: a rework of the whole polling system to implement a real event cache, and HTTP keep-alive is now enabled by default, so users will no longer be confused by the tunnel mode. Other nice updates include SSL handshake optimizations, more debugging info on the stats socket, the ability to rate-limit SSL to protect the resources, sample fetches to retrieve captured headers, automatic stickiness to the same server after 401/407, and the new "tcp-check connect" directive to check multiple ports on a server. 32 bugs were fixed since dev21.

    Release Notes: This release fixes a few annoying bugs. Use this version instead of 1.5-dev20 to be safe.

    Release Notes: Many new features are included in this version, including server-side keep-alive, maps, use of log-format syntax in redirects, agent-check, tcp-check send/expect, and important memory savings. 71 bugs were fixed. Thanks to the entry of server-side keep-alive, this should be the last development version before the final 1.5 release (unless new bugs appear and require another one).

    Release Notes: This version fixes two possible crashes, one of them remotely triggered (CVE-2013-2175) involving use of a negative occurrence number in hdr_* fetches. Other long-standing improvements were finally merged, such as http-response, dynamic setting of priority, DSCP headers, Netfilter mark and log level, transparent proxy on *BSD, fetching of environment variables, conditional PROXY protocol by ACL, 3 parallel stick-counters instead of 2, reworking of the doc to simplify the search of ACL/fetch keywords, and further-improved configuration error reporting. All 1.5 users must upgrade.
