> 
>                  Apache Portable Runtime 1.0.0 Released
> 
>    The Apache Software Foundation and the Apache Portable Runtime
>    Project are proud to announce the General Availability of
>    version 1.0.0 of the Apache Portable Runtime, APR.
> 
>    APR is available for download from:
> 
>       http://apr.apache.org/download.cgi
> 
>    The mission of the Apache Portable Runtime Project is to create
>    and maintain software libraries that provide a predictable and
>    consistent interface to underlying platform-specific
>    implementations. The primary goal is to provide an API to
>    which software developers may code and be assured of predictable
>    if not identical behavior regardless of the platform on which
>    their software is built, relieving them of the need to code
>    special-case conditions to work around or take advantage of
>    platform-specific deficiencies or features.
> 
>    APR and its companion libraries are implemented entirely in C
>    and provide a common programming interface across a wide variety
>    of operating system platforms without sacrificing performance.
>    Currently supported platforms include:
> 
>       * UNIX
>       * Windows
>       * Netware
>       * OS/2
>       * BeOS
> 
>    This first General Availability release of APR marks the
>    culmination of several years of development by the contributors
>    to the APR project.  The changes that have been made since
>    the project began are far too numerous to list here, but the
>    highlights can be found in the CHANGES file included in the
>    distribution.  To give a brief overview, the primary core
>    subsystems of APR 1.0 include the following:
> 
>       * Atomic operations
>       * Dynamic Shared Object loading
>       * File I/O
>       * Locks (mutexes, condition variables, etc)
>       * Memory management (high performance allocators)
>       * Memory-mapped files
>       * Network I/O
>       * Shared memory
>       * Thread and Process management
>       * Various data structures (tables, hashes, priority queues, etc)
>

> 
>    Users of APR 0.9 should be aware that migrating to the APR 1.0
>    programming interfaces may require some adjustments; APR 1.0 is
>    not binary compatible with earlier APR 0.9 releases.  Users of
>    APR 1.0 can expect consistent interfaces and binary compatibility
>    through the entire APR 1.x release cycle, as defined in our
>    versioning rules:
> 
>        http://apr.apache.org/versioning.html
> 
>    APR is already used extensively by the Apache HTTP Server
>    version 2.0 and the Subversion revision control system, to
>    name but a few.  We list all known projects using APR at
>    http://apr.apache.org/projects.html -- so please let us know
>    if you find our libraries useful in your own projects!
