HAProxy known bugs for maintenance branch 1.8
This is maintenance branch 1.8
whose latest version is 1.8.12. If your version is not the last
one in the maintenance branch, you are missing fixes for known bugs, and by not updating
you are needlessly taking the responsibility for the risk of unexpected service outages and
exposing your web site to possible security issues.
The HAProxy development team takes a great care of maintaining stable versions so that all
users can apply bug fixes without having to take the risk of upgrading to a new branch.
In turn users are expected to apply the fixes when the development team estimates that
they were worth being backported to stable branches. In short, if you are running any 1.8
version other than 1.8.12, you're running with known bugs.

Versions available in this branch
This branch contains the following releases :
Fixes for known bugs pending in this branch since the last release (1.8.12)
These fixes have already been queued for the next 1.8 release but no version was released
with them yet. Note that fixes are backported several at a time from the development branch
to maintenance branches, and the absence of a fix here doesn't mean none will be issued soon.
Bugs are almost always tagged with a severity (some people forget the severity tag when the bug is minor). The following severities are used :
MINOR: the bug presents a limited impact and can easily be mitigated ; users rarely upgrade just for these ones ;
MEDIUM: the bug can cause some undesired behaviour and may require some tricky configuration changes to avoid hitting it ; users normally upgrade to get rid of them, or temporarily disable a functionality.
MAJOR: the bug affects short term reliability and cannot easily be worked around without a significant performance penalty or without a significant functional loss ; such bugs don't stay long in the queue without a release and users must plan an upgrade as soon as possible ;
CRITICAL: this one very rarely happens ; it indicates a short-term reliability or security issue for which there is no workaround. A release will be emitted for this fix even if it's alone and users are urged to upgrade immediately. Some distro maintainers might have been informed in advance in order to agree on a coordinated release date.

Known bugs fixed in the development branch after the last commit in this branch
It is important to understand that not all of these commits are necessarily
relevant to this version, but clicking on them will show the bug description.
All fixes are made first in the development branch and then backported to the
maintenance branches. This ensures no fix is lost when upgrading. If a fix was
marked for backporting to this branch and is not there yet, it's likely that it
is still missing. Do not hesitate to ask on the haproxy mailing list if you feel
like a fix has been skipped.
