  -Apache 1.3b5 under both Win32 and UNIX has undergone extensive testing,
  -and is much improved over the previous 1.3b2 release. In particular, the
  -1.3b2 release for Win32 was considered a ``developer's version.''  We feel
  -confident that the Win32 port is ready for a wider audience, and with that
  -in mind, we are providing pre-compiled executables for the Win32 platform,
  -as well as a true Win32 environment Installer (InstallShield). This is,
  -however, still a beta release and there are known issues that will be
  -fixed before the final 1.3 release.

  -As a premiere, this version of Apache comes with a beta version of a port
  -to a mainframe machine which uses the EBCDIC character set as its native
  -codeset (It is the SIEMENS NIXDORF family of mainframes running the
  -BS2000/OSD operating system on a IBM/390 compatible processor.
  -This mainframe OS nowadays features a SVR4-like POSIX subsystem)
  -Provisions to convert between EBCDIC documents and the ASCII encoded
  -HTTP protocol have been integrated into Apache, and most of
  -the provided Apache modules have been ported to this platform.
  +As a premiere, this version of Apache comes with the new Apache Autoconf-style
  +Interface (APACI) for out-of-the-box building and installing the complete
  +Apache package. Actually APACI provides the commonly known and expected
  +"configure" interface to the old Apache source configuration scripts. It is
  +able to batch-control any existing Apache configuration options (usually
  +specified manually in src/Configuration) and provides some additional features
  +like on-the-fly adding third-party modules to the build process or configuring
  +and installing the suEXEC mechanism.
  +
  +Additionally this Apache version the first time provides greatly improved
  +support for loading Apache modules through dynamic shared object (DSO) files
  +under runtime through the improved mod_so. Apache currently supports this
  +feature under Linux, FreeBSD, Solaris, SunOS, IRIX, OSF1 and UnixWare.
  +Actually all distributed Apache modules now can be build and installed as
  +shared objects by individually enabling DSO for them via APACI's
  +--enable-shared option. For building third-party modules outside the Apache
  +source tree a new support tool named `apxs' is provided which hides the
  +platform-dependend DSO-build mechanism and automates the installation and
  +activation of those DSO files.
   
   Please be sure to read the CHANGES file and the "New Features with Apache
   1.3" document (at http://www.apache.org/docs/new_features_1_3.html).
