2.1.6 is the unstable branch.  Don't upgrade to the unstable branch

The actual vulnerability seems only to apply to systems running
mod_proxy, or behind proxies of some other sort.  The exploit involves
multiple systems speaking to one another, each handling Content-Length

If you're not behind a proxy, you're not vulnerable to this exploit,
from what I understand.
