Change Log

The new version is a maintenance release with the following changes:

  • Updated the SSL/TLS engine;
  • Swapped the position of the hosts table and the icon panel in the main page of the console;
  • Fixed the support of macOS integrated firewall so that the firewall confirmation dialog now only appears once;
  • Fixed a bug which resulted in no startup error message when there is already a running instance of Abyss Web Server;
  • Fixed a typo in the default directory listing template;
  • Fixed a bug which made SSL connections timeout after 60 seconds when sending large files;
  • Fixed a bug resulting in the console displaying a blank host name for any old host not associated with a certificate;
  • Fixed an issue with the reverse proxy which was sending a default error page with no headers when the back-end reported an error with no body. The issue was especially occurring with error 401 and a null Content-Length;
  • Fixed a bug consisting in some FastCGI processes not being properly killed before stopping the server.
