Bug Fixes:

Breaking Changes:

  • Web Interface. To get the performance benefits we replaced the older Common Gateway Interface (CGI), an interface between the web page or browser and the web server that runs the application, with newer and faster – FastCGI. Unlike CGI, FastCGI allows managing multiple CGI requests within a single process without creating a separate process for each request.
