    Release Notes: This release supports Require group and Require user access directives, even from chroot, using system user databases. An AuthBSDStrictRequire switch was added to force all Require directives to match instead of only one, which is the default behavior for Apache auth modules.

        •  17 Sep 2003 06:52

          Release Notes: This version removes the failure database because of signal issues allowing database corruption (truncated writes). The only practical fix was subject to a race, so this "feature" was removed entirely, and replaced with a simple, required nanosleep to mitigate brute-force attack.

          •  29 Jul 2003 03:01

            Release Notes: Stricter/safer enforcement of login failure penalties, installation fixups, and a new AuthBSDRequireSSL directive (defaults to On).
