A Free Software, multi-threaded, non-blocking network
application server designed for low _idle_ power consumption.
It is primarily optimized for applications with occasional users
which see little or no traffic.  yahns currently hosts Rack/HTTP
applications, but may eventually support other application
types.  Unlike some existing servers, yahns is extremely
sensitive to fatal bugs in the applications it hosts.

Changes:

    yahns 1.12.3 - more fixes and doc updates

    This release only contains two changes since v1.12.2:

    * proxy_http_response: workaround non-terminated backends

      The first is a fix for the undocumented and unstable "proxy_pass"
      feature:
      https://yhbt.net/yahns-public/20160406062556.10988-1-e@80x24.org/t/

      However, I'm considering supporting proxy_pass as a stable API:
      https://yhbt.net/yahns-public/20160220081619.GA10850@dcvr.yhbt.net/t/

    * doc: recommend "verify_mode: OpenSSL::SSL::VERIFY_NONE"

      Only a documentation change prompted by the discovery that
      some browsers/platforms will try to prompt users for client
      certs:
      https://yhbt.net/yahns-public/20160316003434.GA14791@dcvr.yhbt.net/t/

Please note the disclaimer:

  yahns is extremely sensitive to fatal bugs in the apps it hosts.  There
  is no (and never will be) any built-in "watchdog"-type feature to kill
  stuck processes/threads.  Each yahns process may be handling thousands
  of clients; unexpectedly killing the process will abort _all_ of those
  connections.  Lives may be lost!

  yahns hackers are not responsible for your application/library bugs.
  Use an application server which is tolerant of buggy applications
  if you cannot be bothered to fix all your fatal bugs.

Changes:

    yahns 1.12.4 - rack.hijack and proxy_pass bugfixes

    This release fixes some resource leaks in uncommonly used parts
    of yahns as well as including some documentation improvements.
    No need to upgrade unless you rely on rack.hijack for responses
    or use the (currently-undocumented) proxy_pass module(*).

    9 non-merge changes since 1.12.3:

          proxy_pass: honor wbuf_persist when ending response
          proxy_http_response: fix non-terminated fast responses, too
          test_proxy_pass: test for auto chunking on 1.0 backends
          wbuf: drop persistence if writing to client fails
          proxy_http_response: cleanup: avoid redundant setting of "alive"
          proxy_http_response: do not persist upstream on slow clients
          proxy_pass: drop resources immediately on errors
          document Rack::Chunked/ContentLength semi-requirements
          extras/exec_cgi: document cgit example

    (*) 1.13.0 will include refactoring in proxy_pass and possibly
        documenting it as stable-enough-for-public use:

Changes:

    yahns 1.12.5 - proxy_pass + rack.hijack fixes

    Hopefully the last of the 1.12.x series, this release
    fixes a few minor bugs mainly needed for testing.

    No upgrade should be necessary for non-proxy_pass users.

    4 changes since v1.12.4 from the "maint" branch at
    git://yhbt.net/yahns.git

          http_client: set state to :ignore before hijack callback
          test/test_client_expire: fix for high RLIMIT_NOFILE
          proxy_pass: do not chunk HTTP/1.0 with keep-alive
          proxy_pass: X-Forwarded-For appends to existing list

    Note: the current "master" branch (at commit 5e211ea003d2)
    includes refactorings and new features not included in this
    release.
