lighttpd 1.4.65 released

Dear package maintainers:

lighttpd 1.4.65 has been released!

Please package and publish lighttpd 1.4.65.

Please review the below behavior changes scheduled next year in 2023.

Please let me know if you have any questions or issues.  Thank you!

Cheers, Glenn

* WebSockets over HTTP/2
  RFC 8441 Bootstrapping WebSockets with HTTP/2
  RFC 9218 Extensible Prioritization Scheme for HTTP
* prefix/suffix conditions in lighttpd.conf
* mod_webdav safe partial-PUT
  webdav.opts += ("partial-put-copy-modify" => "enable")
* mod_accesslog option: accesslog.escaping = "json"
* mod_deflate libdeflate build option
* speed up request body uploads via HTTP/2


* change default server.max-keep-alive-requests = 1000 to adjust
  to increasing HTTP/2 usage and to web2/web3 application usage
  (prior default was 100)
* mod_status HTML now includes HTTP/2 control stream id 0 in the output
  which contains aggregate counts for the HTTP/2 connection
  (These lines can be identified with URL '*', part of "PRI *" preface)
* MIME type application/javascript is translated to text/javascript (RFC 9239)


* TLS modules will default to using stronger, modern ciphers and
  will default to allow client preference in selecting ciphers.
  Allowing client preference in selecting ciphers is safe to do along
  with restrictions to use modern ciphers supporting PFS, and is
  better for mobile users without AES hardware acceleration.
  Legacy ciphers can still be configured in lighttpd.conf using
  `ssl.openssl.ssl-conf-cmd`, as long as the ciphers are supported by
  the underlying TLS libraries.
  new defaults:
    "CipherString" => "EECDH+AESGCM:AES256+EECDH:CHACHA20:!SHA1:!SHA256:!SHA384",
    "Options" => "-ServerPreference"
  old defaults:
    "CipherString" => "HIGH",
    "Options" => "ServerPreference"

* Deprecated TLS options will be removed.
  - ssl.honor-cipher-order
  - ssl.dh-file
  - ssl.disable-client-renegotiation
  - ssl.use-sslv2
  - ssl.use-sslv3
  See for replacements with
  `ssl.openssl.ssl-conf-cmd`, but prefer lighttpd defaults instead.

* Continue gradual deprecation of "mini-application" lighttpd modules
  for which mod_magnet lua implementations are better and more flexible.
  Please post on lighttpd forums to share feedback if you use these modules.

* Deprecated: mod_evasive will be removed.
  mod_evasive can be replaced by mod_magnet and a few lines of lua:

* Deprecated: mod_secdownload will be removed.
  mod_secdownload can be replaced by mod_magnet and a few lines of lua:
  mod_secdownload historically uses insecure MD5 though SHA1, SHA256 available

* Deprecated: mod_uploadprogress will be removed.
  mod_uploadprogress can be replaced by mod_magnet and a few lines of lua:

* Deprecated: mod_usertrack will be removed.
  mod_usertrack can be replaced by mod_magnet and a few lines of lua:
  mod_usertrack historically uses insecure MD5.
