H2O HTTP/2 server 1.7.2 / 2.0.0-beta3 released

Today I have released H2O HTTP/2 server version 1.7.2 and 2.0.0-beta3.

The releases include an updated version of LibreSSL that fixes CVE-2016-2107; users of H2O built with the bundled version of LibreSSL are advised to update their installations.

In addition to the fix, 2.0.0-beta3 includes many new features and bug fixes.

Especially, support for reverse-proxying over HTTPS (#875) and the new configuration directives for tweaking environment variables passed to FastCGI (#868) might be helpful to the users who have wanted them.

We plan to release the final version of 2.0 soon, and then proceed to optimizing the server even further. Stay tuned!
