Google Summer of Code 2009

Like every year, google is running the GSoC 2009 and if you have a neat idea that you would like to propose, please do so and add it to the list at our “GSoc2009 wiki page”:http://redmine.lighttpd.net/projects/lighttpd/wiki/GSoC2009

PRE-RELEASE: Lighttpd 1.4.22rc2-r2405

As a followup to rc1 of 1.4.22, rc2 has been published with 3 additional bugfixes.
Two of which are for FreeBSD users, the other one relating to mod_scgi.

PRE-RELEASE: Lighttpd 1.4.22rc1-r2402

Unfortunately there was a bug introduced with version 1.4.21 of lighttpd which rendered the default vhost in mod_simple_vhost broken (always 404).

Therefor we would like to draw your attention to this new testing version.

Prerelease of Spawn-fcgi 1.6.0 (Rc1-r16)

spawn-fcgi extracted into own project


There are several versions of spawn-fcgi (one in lighttpd 1.4.x, one in 1.5.x and one in cherokee), which makes packaging very hard (e.g.: debian packages spawn-fcgi from lighty as “spawn-fcgi.lighttpd” – making usage complicated as your scripts are probably just using “spawn-fcgi”).
Additionally, keeping the sources and bug fixes synchronized is just too much work (ok, the one in cherokee isn’t our problem :) ).
Therefore we decided to split spawn-fcgi into a new project which will start with version 1.6.0 (and will be independent of lighttpd releases or versions).

We plan to remove spawn-fcgi from lighttpd-1.4.x after the release of 1.4.22.

In case you would like to test a spawn-fcgi version with more features (options for chowning the socket), see here: http://cgit.stbuehler.de/gitosis/spawn-fcgi/about/ (needs glib)


You can find the new project at http://redmine.lighttpd.net/projects/spawn-fcgi/wiki
