"Release early, release often."

So here we are again. The previous release is already 12 days old! It already got grey hair.

And again we have a small security bug! It seems, if you get the more popular, more people are looking at your code. This time Mattias Bengtsson and Philip Olausson from took a look at the code. They found a small bug that could lead to remote code execution in fastcgi applications. (We wont mention names here.)

Changes from 1.4.17

  • fixed forwarding a SIGINT and SIGHUP when using max-workers (#902)
