  * New configuration option: "DicomTlsRemoteCertificateRequired" to allow secure DICOM TLS
  connections without certificate
  * "ETag" headers for metadata and attachments now allow strong comparison (MD5 is included)
  * New CMake option: "ORTHANC_LUA_VERSION" to use a specific version of system-wide Lua
  * Fix the lifetime of temporary files associated with jobs that create ZIP archive/media:
  - In synchronous mode, their number could grow up to "JobsHistorySize" in Orthanc <= 1.9.2
  - In asynchronous mode, the temporary files are removed as soon as their job gets canceled
  * Fix regression in the handling of "DicomCheckModalityHost" configuration option
  introduced by changeset 4182 in Orthanc 1.7.4
  * Reduced memory consumption of "OrthancPluginHttpClient()", "OrthancPluginHttpClient2()" and
  "OrthancPluginCallPeerApi()" on POST/PUT if chunked transfer is disabled
  * Fix issue #195 (No need for BulkDataURI when Data Element is empty)
- from version 1.9.2:
