Update Information:

Current upstream maintenance release, including a security fix for a
possible heap buffer overwrite issue (CVE-2013-4365).
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
ChangeLog:

* Tue Oct  8 2013 Paul Howarth  2.3.9-1
- Update to 2.3.9
  - SECURITY: Fix possible heap buffer overwrite (CVE-2013-4365)
  - Add experimental cmake-based build system for Windows
  - Correctly parse quotation and escaped spaces in FcgidWrapper and the
AAA
    Authenticator/Authorizor/Access directives' command line argument, as
    currently documented (PR#51194)
  - Honor quoted FcgidCmdOptions arguments (notably for InitialEnv
    assignments) (PR#51657)
  - Conform script response parsing with mod_cgid and ensure no response
body
    is sent when ap_meets_conditions() determines that request conditions
are
    met
  - Improve logging in access control hook functions
  - Avoid making internal sub-requests and processing Location headers when
in
    FCGI_AUTHORIZER mode, as the auth hook functions already treat Location
    headers returned by scripts as an error since redirections are not
    meaningful in this mode
  - Revert fix for PR#53693, added in 2.3.8 but undocumented
  - Fix issues with a minor optimization added in 2.3.8
* Sat Aug  3 2013 Fedora Release Engineering
 2.3.7-7
- Rebuilt for https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_20_Mass_Rebuild
* Thu Feb 14 2013 Fedora Release Engineering
 2.3.7-6
- Rebuilt for https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Fedora_19_Mass_Rebuild
