Release History release-history

Release 4.3.7 (2024-March-27) march

Improvements:

  • DISP-1009 - setting header length again
  • DISP-1013 - add openssl 3.0 support for linux
  • DISP-1014 - response.location processing leading to invalid redirect
  • DISP-1017 - changing DTD defintion

Release 4.3.6 (2023-July-25) jyly

Improvements:

  • DISP-911 AEM‑05 ‑ X‑Edge‑Key can be leaked in disp_apache2.c
  • DISP-937 logging all selectors
  • DISP-998 making loading of vanity urls at startup configurable

Release 4.3.5 (2022-Apr-04) apr

Improvements:

  • DISP-954 - Support invalidation even if expiration has not passed
  • DISP-949 - Dispatcher returns 200 instead of 404 even if POST request is blocked by filter

Release 4.3.4 (2021-Nov-29) nov

Bug Fixes:

  • DISP-833 - X-Forwarded-Host headers may contain a list of comma separated hostnames
  • DISP-835 - DispatcherUseForwardedHost swallows Host header if it comes last

Improvements:

  • DISP-874 - Creates a dispatcher configuration to turn implementation of DISP-818 either On or Off through a flag DispatcherRestrictUncacheableContent. The default value is Off. When On, it removes any caching headers set by mod expires for uncacheable content. This is different from the behavior found in version 4.3.3 (where the default was On) but the same as versions earlier than 4.3.3 (where the default was Off). Keeping DispatcherRestrictUncacheableContent’s default Off is the recommended approach so the browser cache has more flexibility. If, when upgrading from version 4.3.3 to 4.3.4, you wish to keep the same behavior as in version 4.3.3, you must explicitly set DispatcherRestrictUncacheableContent to On.
  • DISP-841 - Dispatcher doesn’t respect /serverStaleOnError for 504 response code

  • DISP-883 - Trace showing URL request Decomposition in Dispatcher
  • DISP-944 - pre load vanity urls
