Fixed a memory leak in mod_perl2 by avoiding $r->push_handlers().
Enabled use of http persistent-connections by default which give significant performance boost by reducing latency. Allow build to continue even if mod_perl can't be found. Client now warns when retring request afer receiving a 503. Documented some env vars that influence retry-on-503 behaviour.
Requires DBI 1.605 Add retry with delay with exponential backoff on 503 error. Now check_response_hook can throw an exception hash/object which can control how the httpd responds to the error. Check Client_ip and X-Forwarded-For headers to get client ip address. Added set of gofer_request & gofer_response pnotes for handlers. Moved update_stats() call to PerlCleanupHandler. Improved handling of corrupt requests. Status now shows distribution of requests per IP address. Status now marks and reports duplicate requests. Status can now optionally show recent errors. Record severe transport errors via update_stats so they can be seen remotely via trace_recent. More detailed status reports from track_recent data.
Added DBD_GOFER_RETRY_ON_EMPTY mechanism to work around problems with some load balancer configurations.
Fixed for mod_perl2, better. Support GET requests with ?req=<base64 encoded Storable request> Added 'replay' urls to the gofer status reports. Added a little more support for multiple serializations.
Fix for mod_perl2
