  +  *) Dynamic Shared Object (DSO) support
  +       The support for loading Apache modules under runtime from DSO files was
  +       greatly enhanced: First, mod_so was cleaned up and the src/Configure
  +       script was extended to setup the totally platform-dependend commands to
  +       build DSO files on all major Unix platforms which support the pragmatic
  +       dlopen() interface (Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris, SunOS, IRIX, OSF1,
  +       UnixWare). The two popular platforms HP/UX and AIX are not supported
  +       because they both use a very special proprietary interface. Second the
  +       modules mod_proxy and mod_mime were unbundled to be able to use them
  +       independend from each other. Finally the Makefile generation stuff in
  +       src/Configure was overhauled to support building shared objects as
  +       clean as building static objects. Additionally the new APACI (see
  +       below) provides a powerful mechanism for out-of-the-box enabling,
  +       building, installing and activating those DSO-based modules.
  +
  +  *) APache eXtenSion (APXS) support tool
  +       Now that Apache provides full support for loading modules under runtime
  +       from dynamic shared object (DSO) files, a new support tool "apxs" was
  +       created which provides off-source building, installing and activating
  +       of those DSO-based modules. It completely hides the platform-dependend
  +       DSO-build commands from the user and provides an easy way to build
  +       modules outside the Apache source tree. To achieve this APACI installs
  +       the Apache C header files together with the "apxs" tool.
