    Please use URL rewrite for now, Apache compatible BrowserMatch will be added soon.

    Bump.

    Has this feature arrived? I can't find it.

    If it never arrived, what would a v3.3.14 Request Filter rule look like that, for example, performed the same as the following in an Apache http.conf:
    Code:
    BrowserMatchNoCase ^Jakarta badbot
    <Files *>
    Order Allow,Deny
    Allow from all
    Deny from env=badbot
    </Files>
    ?

    Another vote for BrowserMatch

    IE8 is going to practically require BrowserMatch to not break existing webpages.

    Should be simple to impliment no? It's just a matter of testing the requested string against the user-agent?

    Since you can implement the same logic with a rewrite rule, we don't see the need for supporting BrowserMatch explicitly.

    Remember the idea is to be as completely compatible with existing htaccess files as possible.

    I want to be able to use something as simple as this:
    Code:
    BrowserMatch MSIE ie8-support
    Header set X-UA-Compatible IE=7 env=ie8-support
