Upgrade Notes

The Proxy Authentication handler was renamed to proxy_authentication_handler to follow the *_authentication_handler form of all other handlers. The old proxy_authentification_handler name is marked as deprecated and will be removed in future releases. It’s strongly recommended to update the httpd/authentication_handlers option with the new value if you have this handler configured.
