warning, or logging an error if the line is otherwise empty.

Y2K38 bug. [Joe Orton]
*) mod_ssl: Support SSL DN raw variable extraction without conversion
to UTF-8, using _RAW suffix on variable names. [Joe Orton]

crash generating CSV output for large -n. [Joe Orton, Jan Kaluza]
Changes with Apache 2.4.31
*) mod_proxy_fcgi: Add the support for mod_proxy's flushpackets and flushwait
parameters. [Luca Toscano, Ruediger Pluem, Yann Ylavic]
*) mod_ldap: Avoid possible crashes, hangs, and busy loops due to
improper merging of the cache lock in vhost config.
PR 43164 [Eric Covener]
*) mpm_event: Do lingering close in worker(s). [Yann Ylavic]

Changes with Apache 2.4.30
*) mod_session: Strip Session header when SessionEnv is on. [Yann Ylavic]

longer fatal errors; it is logged and the truncated values are stored.

*) mod_http2: obsolete code removed, no more events on beam pool destruction,
discourage content encoders on http2-status response (where they do not work).

HTML/XHTML. PR 56457 [Nick Kew]

and use/handle POLLOUT where needed to avoid busy IOs and recover write
errors when appropriate. [Yann Ylavic]

*) mod_http2: avoid unnecessary data retrieval for a trace log. Allow certain
information retrievals on null bucket beams where it makes sense. [Stefan Eissing]
Hmm, this does not seem to be considered a stable release! According to the apache site, 2.4.29 is the latest stable... We have it in the book.
Well, it depends on what file you are looking at. There is "CURRENT-IS-2.4.29", but the "Announcement2.4.html" file mentions 2.4.32 as the most recent release... Also the main apache page has:
Stable Release - Latest Version:
2.4.29 (released 2017-10-23)
and there are only links to the 2.4.29 files.
Now 2.4.33. According to the devs, any tarball which exists in the archives is an official one. Thanks to Alain Toussaint for inquiring.
Changes with Apache 2.4.33
*) core: Fix request timeout logging and possible crash for error_log hooks.
*) mod_slomem_shm: Fix failure to create balancers's slotmems in Windows MPM,
where children processes need to attach them instead since they are owned
by the parent process already. [Yann Ylavic]
*) ab: try all destination socket addresses returned by
apr_sockaddr_info_get instead of failing on first one when not available.
Needed for instance if localhost resolves to both ::1 and 127.0.0.1
e.g. if both are in /etc/hosts. [Jan Kaluza]
*) ab: Use only one connection to determine working destination socket
address. [Jan Kaluza]
*) ab: LibreSSL doesn't have or require Windows applink.c. [Gregg L. Smith]
*) htpasswd/htdigest: Disable support for bcrypt on EBCDIC platforms.
apr-util's bcrypt implementation doesn't tolerate EBCDIC. [Eric Covener]
*) htpasswd/htdbm: report the right limit when get_password() overflows.
*) htpasswd: Don't fail in -v mode if password file is unwritable.
PR 61631. [Joe Orton]
*) htpasswd: don't point to (unused) stack memory on output
to make static analysers happy. PR 60634.
