Release Notes: This release adds various minor features and documentation improvements. Basic authentication is now supported. The stack size for threads created by MHD can now be specified by the user. Transmission of content from files using "sendfile" can now be started at a non-zero offset. Finally, the behavior of the "--enable" configure options was changed to be sane.

Other releases

Release Notes: This release removes the dependency on Plibc for W32 and makes various other improvements to the W32 build process. IPv4/IPv6 dual stack should now also work on W32. On Linux, support for TCP FASTOPEN was added. Keep-Alive with HTTP 1.0 is now supported if explicitly requested by the client. The release also adds explicit annotations to hide non-exported symbols and provides various other minor code cleanups.

Release Notes: This release adds support for SNI (multiple domain names on one IP with TLS). A few minor bugs were fixed, including a build issue (if SSL was disabled), a bogus offset calculation (when used with sendfile), a descriptor leak on shutdown (in conjunction with the resume/suspend feature), and a missing argument in an example.

Release Notes: This release includes a few minor security fixes. A MHD_suspend_connection API was added for suspending connections so that they can be resumed later when the server has more data. This was previously not possible when using a thread pool or internal select. A race on the shutdown signal in the thread pool mode and an issue with the post processor incorrectly handling a partial boundary at the beginning were also fixed. Processing of upload data in multipart encoding should now be significantly faster.

Release Notes: The connection handle is now passed as an additional argument to the URI log callback. Connection termination will now be signalled as successful if applications terminate a response stream early. MHD now releases an internal mutex before calling the termination callback, allowing clients to destroy the response object during the termination callback. This release fixes the implementation of the dual stack option. Dependency checks for OpenSSL and libcurl were improved. Build issues with OS X not supporting CLOCK_MONOTONIC were also fixed. The code is now compatible with libgcrypt 1.6.0.

Release Notes: This release implements the "SHOULD" clause of RFC 2616 section 8.1.4, which may reduce bandwidth consumption when clients cancel requests. This release fixes build errors with various combinations of operating systems, libc versions, and configure flags. It also fixes a use-after-free crash when using epoll() in combination with read errors.
