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 1.13.0 - some user-visible improvements...

    And probably a billion new regressions!

    yahns now allows users to skip the Rack::Head, Rack::Chunked and
    Rack::ContentLength middlewares to ease migrating from/to other
    real-world Rack HTTP servers.  Most notably, our chunked
    encoding implementation is a bit faster than Rack::Chunked by
    taking advantage of the writev(2) syscall:

      https://yhbt.net/yahns-public/20160803031906.14553-4-e@80x24.org/

    There's also rack 2.x fixes in the test case and extras/ section
    (these incompatibilities did not affect existing users unless
    they use the wonky extras/ section).

    There's also some graceful shutdown fixes, the process title is
    now changed to display the number of live FDs.

    Of course, there's the usual round of documentation improvements
    which are systemd and OpenSSL setup-related this time around.

    However, the majority of changes (proxy_*, wbuf_lite), affect
    currently-unadvertised functionality which is subject to removal
    or incompatible config changes.  However, they are used to serve
    our mailing list archives at:

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.
