What's New in This Release:
- Bug fixes:
- On POSIX-like platforms, network sockets with file descriptor values above FD_SETSIZE are properly rejected. Previously they could cause memory corruption in configurations that allowed the limit to be reached.
- Proxy authentication headers are removed unless the new directive enable-proxy-authentication-forwarding is used. Forwarding the headers potentially allows malicious sites to trick the user into providing them with login information. Reported by Chris John Riley.
- Compiles on OS/2 again now that unistd.h is only included on platforms that have it.
