Apache HTTP Server 1.3's final update released
The Apache HTTP Server developers have released version 1.3.42 of the popular web server, noting that this will be the last update for the 1.3 series. The release of 1.3.42 is a bug fix and security release, with one moderate security flaw in mod_proxy fixed by preventing integer overflow on platforms where the size of an integer variable in memory was less than that of a long variable.
The developers strongly recommend that users of all earlier releases upgrade to the current series, Apache HTTP Server 2.2, as soon as possible. The latest version of the 2.2 series is 2.2.14 which was released in October 2009. Although this is the last full release of Apache HTTP Server 1.3, critical security updates may be made available as patches on the Apache site in the future.
