  - Apache has been the most popular web server on the Internet since April of
  - 1996.  The Web Server Survey by Netcraft (http://www.netcraft.co.uk/Survey/)
  - found that more web servers were using Apache than any other software.
  - Apache and its derivatives are run on over 50% of all web domains on the
  - Internet.
  + For an overview of new features in 1.2 please read the CHANGES file 
  + in the distribution and the "New Features with Apache 1.3" document at
  +     http://www.apache.org/docs/new_features_1_3.html
   
  - The Apache project has been organized to provide an open-source, secure,
  - efficient and extensible server which provides HTTP services in sync with the
  - current HTTP standards.  For more information about the Apache project check
  - out http://www.apache.org/.
  + Major changes with this beta:
  +  HTTP: fixes for 400 and 408 error codes.
  +  WIN32: Child process spawning now uses native Win32 API.
  +	   This should address many problems people have had
  +           on Win32 - it also forced us to modify the 
  +           related child_spawn calls in the Apache API.
  +         Other various stability fixes.
  +         Extensive overhaul of the way UNCs are handled.
  +  Various mod_rewrite fixes.
  +  Various makefile cleanups.
  +  Various APACI changes.
  +  Various DSO cleanups, better support for AIX, OpenBSD, NetBSD
  +  Server's OS family now reported in Server: strings.
  +  PORT: added support for NCR MP/RAS 3.0
  +  Security: we now make sure all config files opened by Apache are not
  +            special devices.
  +  Added "-s" command line option to dump out vhost settings.
