ANNOUNCE: Mod_python 3.2.7

The Apache Software Foundation and The Apache HTTP Server Project are
pleased to announce the 3.2.7 release of mod_python. Mod_python 3.2.7
is considered a stable release, suitable for production use.

Mod_python is an Apache HTTP Server module that embeds the Python
language interpreter within the server. With mod_python you can write
web-based applications in Python that will run many times faster than
traditional CGI and will have access to advanced features such as
ability to maintain objects between requests, access to httpd
internals, content filters and connection handlers.

The 3.2.7 release has many new features, feature enhancements, fixed
bugs and other improvements over the previous version. See Appendix A
of mod_python documentation for more details.

Mod_python 3.2.7 is released under Apache License version 2.0.

Mod_python 3.2.7 is available for download from:

Many thanks to Jim Gallacher, Graham Dumpleton, Nicolas Lehuen and

Mod_python 3.2.8 (security)

The Apache Software Foundation and The Apache HTTP Server Project are
pleased to announce the release of version 3.2.8 of mod_python.

This release addresses a vulnerability in mod_python's FileSession
object whereby a carefully crafted session cookie could potentially
permit an attacker to execute code on the server.

FileSession was introduced in mod_python 3.2.7 released on February 15
2006 and is not enabled by default, therefore only a very small number
of installations, if any, are likely to be affected by this issue.

There are no other changes or improvements from the previous version in
this release.

Mod_python is available for download from:
