Release Info

  • Version: 1.4.70
  • Previous version: 1.4.69
  • Branch: 1.4
  • Status: stable
  • Release Purpose: bug fixes
  • Release manager: gstrauss
  • Released date: 2023-05-10

Important changes from 1.4.69

  • speed up CGI spawning
  • native Windows build (experimental) (not packaged; no installer)
  • support HTTP/2 downstream proxy serving multiple clients on single connection
    (mod_extforward, mod_maxminddb)
  • restructure code to isolate HTTP/2


Behavior Changes (previously announced):

  • no longer building separate modules for built-in modules
    lighttpd 1.4.70 omits building separate (unused) modules for:
    mod_access mod_alias mod_evhost mod_expire mod_fastcgi mod_indexfile
    mod_redirect mod_rewrite mod_scgi mod_setenv mod_simple_vhost mod_staticfile

Future Scheduled Behavior Changes:

  • HTTP/2 support will be split out into optional separate module (mod_h2)
    (static builds will need to list mod_h2 in plugin-static.h to include mod_h2)
