--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2009-2331
2009-03-04 15:51:53
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Name        : libmicrohttpd
Product     : Fedora 10
Version     : 0.4.0a
Release     : 1.fc10
URL         : http://www.gnu.org/software/libmicrohttpd/
Summary     : Lightweight library for embedding a webserver in applications
Description :
GNU libmicrohttpd is a small C library that is supposed to make it
easy to run an HTTP server as part of another application.
Key features that distinguish libmicrohttpd from other projects are:

* C library: fast and small
* API is simple, expressive and fully reentrant
* Implementation is http 1.1 compliant
* HTTP server can listen on multiple ports
* Support for IPv6
* Support for incremental processing of POST data
* Creates binary of only 25k (for now)
* Three different threading models

Update Information:

- Update to version 0.4.0a - This version introduces a API bump (which is
required for supporting large files on 32bit environments) - The license issues
we had with version 0.3.1 of this package (as discussed in #457924) are resolved
in this version. The license of this package is now changed to LGPLv2+ - Added a
patch to fix a testcases on 64bit environments (upstream bug #1459) Upstream
release notes: As you know, Sagie Amir has been working to get SSL/TLS support
added to libmicrohttpd.  After seeing a decent number of complex tests pass I'm
now reasonably confident that SSL/TLS-support is working sufficiently well for a
general release.  Furthermore, quite a few minor bugs (some of which were
reported to the list here) have also been fixed in the meantime. Note that the
last one of the bugfixes --- adding 64-bit support for 32-bit platforms ---
breaks backwards-compatibility.  Changes to clients using libmicrohttpd should
be minimal (most clients will need to change an "unsigned int" to a "size_t" and
a "size_t" to an "uint64_t" in the arguments of two callbacks). - Update to
