Version: 6.6.1 Vendor: openSUSE
Release: bp154.1.20 Build date: Mon May 9 20:14:23 2022

Summary: Accelerator for HTTP services
Varnish is an HTTP accelerator. Often called Reverse Proxy, it is an
application that stores (caches) documents that have been requested
over the HTTP protocol.

Based on certain criteria, the next client requesting the document is either
given the cached document, or a "fresh" document requested from a backend
server. The purpose of this is to minimize the requests going to the backend
server(s) by serving the same document to potentially many users.






* Wed Dec 01 2021 Johannes Segitz <>
  - Added hardening to systemd service(s) (bsc#1181400). Modified:
    * varnish.service
    * varnishlog.service
* Fri Aug 06 2021 Jan Engelhardt <>
  - Update to release 6.6.1
    * Fix an HTTP/2.0 request smuggling vulnerability. [bnc#1188470]
* Sun Jul 04 2021 Dirk Müller <>
  - update to 6.6.0:
    * The ban_cutoff parameter now refers to the overall length of
      the ban list, including completed bans, where before only
      non-completed (“active”) bans were counted towards ban_cutoff.
    * Body bytes accounting has been fixed to always represent the
      number of body bytes moved on the wire, exclusive of
      protocol-specific overhead like HTTP/1 chunked encoding or
      HTTP/2 framing.
    * The connection close reason has been fixed to properly report
      SC_RESP_CLOSE where previously only SC_REQ_CLOSE was reported.
    * Unless the new validate_headers feature is disabled, all newly
      set headers are now validated to contain only characters
      allowed by RFC7230.
    * The filter_re, keep_re and get_re functions from the bundled
      cookie vmod have been changed to take the VCL_REGEX type. This
      implies that their regular expression arguments now need to be
      literal, not e.g. string.
    * The interface for private pointers in VMODs has been changed,
      the VRT backend interface has been changed, many filter
      (VDP/VFP) related signatures have been changed, and the
      stevedore API has been changed. (Details thereto, see online

  - Update to release 6.4.0
    * The MAIN.sess_drop counter is gone.
    * backend "none" was added for "no backend".
    * The hash algorithm of the hash director was changed, so
      backend selection will change once only when upgrading.
    * It is now possible for VMOD authors to customize the
      connection pooling of a dynamic backend.
    * For more, see changes.rst.
* Tue Feb 25 2020 Jan Engelhardt <>

    * Fix an endless loop in Backend Polling (#2295)
    * Fix a Chunked bug in tight workspaces (#2207, #2275)
    * Fix a bug relating to req.body when on waitinglist (#2266)

    * Keep VCL temperature consistent between mgt/worker also when
      worker protests.
    * A lot of HTTP/2 fixes.
  - Changes introduced by version 5.1.1:
    * Fix bug introduced by stubborn old bugger right before release
      5.1.0 was cut.
  - Changes introduced by version 5.1.0:
    * Added varnishd command-line options -I, -x and -?, and
      tightened restrictions on permitted combinations of options.
    * More progress on support for HTTP/2.
    * Add ``return(fail)`` to almost all VCL subroutines.
    * Restored the old hit-for-pass, invoked with
      ``return(pass(DURATION))`` from
      ``vcl_backend_response``. hit-for-miss remains the default.
      Added the cache_hitmiss stat, and cache_hitpass only counts the
      new/old hit-for-pass cases. Restored HitPass to the Varnish
      log, and added HitMiss. Added the HFP prefix to TTL log entries
      to log a hit-for-pass duration.
    * Rolled back the fix for #1206. Client delivery decides solely
      whether to send a 304 client response, based on client request
      and response headers.
    * Added
    * Added vxid as a lefthand side for VSL queries.
    * Added the setenv and write_body commands for Varnish test cases
      (VTCs). err_shell is deprecated. Also added the operators
    - cliexpect, -match and -hdrlen, and -reason replaces -msg.
      Added the ${bad_backend} macro.
    * varnishtest can be stopped with the TERM, INT and KILL signals,
      but not with HUP.
    * The fallback director has now an extra, optional parameter to
      keep using the current backend until it falls sick.
    * VMOD shared libraries are now copied to the workdir, to avoid
      problems when VMODs are updated via packaging systems.
    * Bump the VRT version to 6.0.
    * Export more symbols from
    * The size of the VSL log is limited to 4G-1b, placing upper
      bounds on the -l option and the vsl_space and vsm_space
    * Added parameters clock_step, thread_pool_reserve and
    * Parameters vcl_dir and vmod_dir are deprecated, use vcl_path
      and vmod_path instead.
    * All parameters are defined, even on platforms that don't
      support them. An unsupported parameter is documented as such in Setting such a parameter is not an error, but has
      no effect.
    * Clarified the interpretations of the + and - operators in VCL
      with operands of the various data types.
    * DURATION types may be used in boolean contexts.
    * INT, DURATION and REAL values can now be negative.
    * Response codes 1000 or greater may now be set in VCL
      internally. resp.status is delivered modulo 1000 in client
    * IP addresses can be compared for equality in VCL.
    * Introduce the STEVEDORE data type, and the objects
      storage.SNAME in VCL. Added and;
      beresp.storage_hint is deprecated.
    * Retired the umem stevedore.
    * req.ttl is deprecated.
    * Added std.getenv() and std.late_100_continue().
    * The fetch_failed stat is incremented for any kind of fetch
    * Added the stats n_test_gunzip and
    * Clarified the meanings of the %r, %{X}i and %{X}o formatters in
  - Add varnish-5.1.2-add-fallthrough-comments.patch to fix build
    with GCC 7 (boo#1041259).
* Tue May 16 2017
  - BuildRequire python3-docutils instead of python-docutils.
* Sun Sep 25 2016
  - Update to new upstream release 5.0.0
  - The varnishd "-u NNN" option, which may be remaining in
    /etc/sysconfig/varnish, has been replaced with "-j unix,user=NNN".
    * Varnish 5.0 changes some (mostly) internal APIs and adds some
    major new features over Varnish 4.1.
    * 5.0 supports jumping from the active VCL's vcl_recv{} to another
    VCL via a VCL label.
    * Very Experimental HTTP/2 support
    * We have added to the "directors" VMOD — an overhauled version of
    a director which was available as an out-of-tree VMOD under the
    name VSLP for a couple of years. It is basically a better hash
    director which uses consistent hashing to provide improved
    stability of backend node selection when the configuration and/or
    health state of backends changes.
    * Hit-For-Pass is now actually Hit-For-Miss
    * We have made the ban lurker even more efficient by example of
    some real live situations with tens of thousands of bans using
    inefficient regular expressions.
    * The waitinglist logic for ESI subrequests now uses condition
    variables to trigger immediate continuation of ESI processing
    when an object being waited for becomes available.
    * Backend PROXY protocol requests are now supported through the
    .proxy_header attribute of the backend definition.
    * VCL files are now also being searched for in
    /usr/share/varnish/vcl if not found in /etc/varnish.
    * The basic device detection vcl is now bundled with varnish.
* Thu Aug 18 2016
  - Add "-ffloat-store -fexcess-precision=standard" to CFLAGS when
    building for ix86, working around bug gcc#323. See also
* Fri Apr 22 2016
  - Update to new upstream release 4.1.2
    * vmods: Passing VCL ACL to a vmod is now possible.
    * vmods: VRT_MINOR_VERSION increase due to new function:
    * Be stricter when parsing a HTTP request to avoid potential HTTP
    smuggling attacks against vulnerable backends.
* Tue Mar 08 2016
  - Report testsuite failure to build log and make testsuite nonfatal
    as there seems to be one swaying test, tests/r01478.vtc.
* Tue Feb 16 2016
  - disable silent rules in spec file.
  - enable testsuite for varnish.
* Tue Feb 16 2016
  - Update to new upstream release 4.1.1
    * Improved security features (jails).
    * Support for PROXY protocol.
    * Warm and cold VCL states.
    * Backends defined through VMODs.
    * A lot of bugs were fixed.
  - Delete 0001-Fail-fetch-on-malformed-Content-Length-header.patch,
      this issue was fixed in upstream.
  - Add 'su varnish varnish' line to varnish.logrotate file.
  - Cleanup with spec-cleaner.
* Fri Mar 27 2015
  - Update to new upstream release 4.0.3
    * Full support for streaming objects through from the backend on a
    cache miss. Bytes will be sent to 1..n requesting clients as they
    come in from the backend server.
    * Background (re)fetch of expired objects. On a cache miss where a
    stale copy is available, serve the client the stale copy while
    fetching an updated copy from the backend in the background.
    * New varnishlog query language, allowing automatic grouping of
    requests when debugging ESI or a failed backend request.
    * Comprehensive request timestamp and byte counters.
  - Add 0001-Fail-fetch-on-malformed-Content-Length-header.patch
