14.6.8 is a maintenance release with improvements, bug fixes and third party updates.
For the folks operating FIT servers, we are happy to finally ship a solution for the issue with excessive memory use due to brotli compression. It turned out that neither
libbrotli were leaking memory. However, the way
free()s leaves behind a fragmented heap that
libc is not willing to return the OS. With the right parameters, we could tune the allocator to avoid this memory bloat, reducing memory usage by 500 MB per
httpd process on Red Hat based systems (and up to 100 MB on Ubuntu or SLES).
From time to time, one needs to clear the HTTP cache, e.g. when resources in the origin change. Instead of deleting all cached files,
clearcache --http now sets a reference file that instantaneously invalidates all files. The origin then may send lightweight
304 responses to revalidate the existing caches.
The changelog provides a thorough list.
