Dear all,

I'm pleased to announce the release of GNU libmicrohttpd 0.9.4.  

GNU libmicrohttpd is a small C library that is supposed to make it easy to run 
an HTTP server as part of another application.  GNU libmicrohttpd is fully
HTTP 1.1 compliant and supports IPv6.  Finally, GNU libmicrohttpd is fast, 
portable and has a simple API and (without TLS support and other optional 
features) a small binary size (~32k).

This release adds various minor features and documentation improvements.  
Basic authentication is now supported (in addition to the existing support for 
digest authentication and the use of TLS client certificates).  The stack size 
for threads created by MHD can now be specified by the user.  Transmission of 
content from files using the "sendfile" optimization can now be started at a 
non-zero offset.  Finally, the behavior of the "--enable" configure options 
was changed to be sane.

You can download GNU libmicrohttpd from

* and all GNU FTP mirrors. 
* Our Subversion repository at

Please report bugs to our bugtracker at

The documentation (including a reference manual and tutorial) at has also been updated,
including a new chapter on how to do client authentication using
TLS certificates.

Happy hacking!
