Changes since v1.03:

if the server stops reading from the client before it has sent all its
data, Apache::TestClient (which is used when LWP is not available)
would just die without any error message (5.8.1) because no SIGPIPE
handler was setup and the Broken Pipe error was missed. Replacing
'print $s' with $s->send() solves this problem: Apache::TestClient
will just move on without bailing out. [Stas]

if env var APACHE_TEST_PRETEND_NO_LWP is true, Apache::Test will
pretend that LWP is not available. useful for testing whether the test
suite will survive on a system which doesn't have libwww-perl
installed. [Stas]

Apache::TestSmoke provides a new mode: -bug_mode, which runs an
equivalent of plain 't/TEST' but generates a lot of useful debug
information, in addition to matching the core files to the tests that
caused them. [Stas]

Apache::TestSmoke now scans for core files, just like Apache::TestRun
does [Stas]

Allow the creation of name based virtual hosts by supplying
<VirtualHost servername:module> containers in$ files.
[André Malo]

fix Apache::TestSSLCA to generate a separate index.txt file for each
module, as on certain platforms openssl fails to re-use the same
file. [Stas]

remove the unused example section from t/conf/, it made
an assumption that mod_auth is available [Stas]

in the autogenerated t/conf/httpd.conf include mod_alias and mod_mime
loading, in case they were built as a shared object and wasn't loaded
from the system-wide httpd.conf from which Apache::Test inherits the
config. [Stas]

added have_apache_mpm() function [Geoffrey Young]

when moving test-specific config directives from __DATA__ to
httpd.conf don't use hash, or the order of arguments is not
preserved. Thanks to perl-5.8.1 for randomizing the hash seed, which
has exposed the bug by breaking the test suite. [Stas]

when the tests are run in the 'root' mode, check whether the
DocumentRoot and its parent dirs are rwx before the tests are run and
suggest possible workarounds when the tests are doomed to fail,
because of the permission issues. [Stas]

UPLOAD is now auto-exported, like the rest [David Wheeler

Change the way the redirect_ok parameter works so that it affects only
_that call_ to the function. Afterward it should revert to the old
value of $RedirectOK. [David Wheeler <>]

Change user_agent() so that the LWP::UserAgent "requests_redirectable"
parameter actually does something useful vis-à-vis $RedirectOK. [David
Wheeler <>]

Apache::TestRequest API documenation [David Wheeler

Enable TransferLog in the autogenerated httpd.conf only if
mod_log_config is available [Stas]
