INN Feature Changes: 1.5.1 to get 1.6

"Feature changes" (according to me) present in 1.6 as compared to 1.5.1 (and 1.5.1sec2 and 1.5.2) These are tagged in the Unified Sources as INN160FE. This is taken from my message to INN-WORKERS of 5 Sep 1997.


    KEYWORDS (like INN doesn't have enough things holding up the main 
              loop already....)

    Path header propagation

    apb mega patch, with worker limits, including RCHAN stuff.

    background renumbering

    ctlinnd lowmark


    Debugging and dmalloc hooks in inndstart.c

    Innd initial prority (inndstart.c)

    Priority setting in innd.c

    PerlMode() call when shutting down

    Much better usage diagnostics.  (Keep these!)

    Poison paths

    Matt Dillon's mmap active and NO_MMAP_ACTIVE (nnrpd/group.c)

    Optimization in article.c::OVERfind when last article number was 

    Change to different DONT_LIKE_PULLERS code

    X-trace X-complaints to headers.

    ftp method in actsyncd.  (Seems useful.)

Some changes to the behavior which I classify as feature changes, but they are arguably "defect fixes."
    Logging of "think it's a dotquad" message. (rc.c)

    Log level of shutdown in innd CleanupAndExit

    sigpipe-handler and no logging of "Connection reset by peer"
               (netscape wins this one.)

    A change in the order of the response to ARTICLE, HEAD, STAT.
        (I don't understand this.  I know it was probably wrong
         before, but changing something that is so embedded in
         the protocol seems likely to break things....  Can someone
         explain this one to me?)
        The code is in nnrpd/article.c::CMDfetch
#mibexp#ifexp XINN160B3  XINN1P6B2 INN160FE
         Reply("%d %ld %s %s\r\n", what->ReplyCode, art, av[1], what->Item);
         Reply("%d %ld %s %s\r\n", what->ReplyCode, art, what->Item, av[1]);
