           string of the browser. Combined with XSSI, this allows you to
           write browser-based conditional HTML documents.
    
  !   *) SetUID CGI Execution Apache now supports the execution of CGI
  !        scripts as users other than the server user. A number of security
  !        checks are built in to try and make this as safe as possible.
    
      *) URL Rewriting Module
           The optional mod_rewrite module is now included. This module can
           provide powerful URL mapping, using regular expressions. There's
           nothing this module can't do!
    
  -   *) Optional FastCGI Module Included
  -        FastCGI is a high-performance alternative to CGI. FastCGI gets its
  -        speed by having the Web server keep the application processes
  -        running between requests. So, unlike CGI, you do not have the
  -        overhead of starting up a new process and doing application
  -        initialization (e.g. connecting to a database) each time somebody
  -        requests a document. The processes start up with the Web server
  -        and keep on running.

      *) Enhanced, Configurable Logging
           The optional mod_log_config included with earlier versions of
           Apache is now standard, and has been enhanced to allow logging of

           "Gone" or "See Other" HTTP status. For NCSA-compatibility,
           RedirectTemp and RedirectPermanent are also implemented.
    
  -   *) Graceful Restarts
  -        Apache can re-read the config files and re-open log files without
  -        terminating transactions in progress.
  - 
      *) Simplified Compilation
           The process of configuring Apache for compilation has been
           simplified.

           The AuthUserFile, AuthGroupFile and AuthDigestFile commands now
           have a syntax compatible with the NCSA server.
    
  !   *) Optional proxy module
           An improved FTP, HTTP, and CONNECT mode SSL proxy is included with
           Apache 1.2. Some of the changes visible to users:

                  - CONNECT mode ports are configurable from a list
                  - NoCache * directive for disabling proxy caching
                  - Numerous bug fixes
  + 
  +   *) Optional Example Module
  +        An example module that demonstrates many of the aspects of the
  +        API is now included with Apache as of version 1.2.  It can be
  +        used as a base for those who wish to write their own Apache
  +        modules.
