  +<P>
  + The Apache Group is pleased to announce the release of the long
  + awaited 1.3.0 version of the Apache HTTP server.  A dozen months,
  + hundreds of patches and over 100 code contributors helped make the
  + release of 1.3.0 a reality.
  +
  +<P>
  + Apache 1.3.0 is the most stable version of Apache currently available;
  + everyone running 1.2.X servers or earlier should upgrade to 1.3, as we
  + will stop providing support for the 1.2.X tree, though we may make a
  + release of 1.2.7. At present, the Win95/NT port of Apache is not
  + as stable as the UNIX version. Further releases of the 1.3.x tree
  + will bring the Win95/NT port closer to parity.

  -<H2>Compilation note:</H2>
   
  -Apache 1.2 uses regular expressions for several modules, such as
  -mod_rewrite.  Since system-level "regex" support isn't consistent
  -across platforms, we have provided Henry Spencer's regex library as a
  -part of the Apache distribution, but have taken pains to only use it
  -if the platform requires it.  Since we don't have access to all
  -operating systems out there, we may not have correctly defined the
  -"WANTHSREGEX" #define for a given platform.  If you get a warning
  -about a missing 'regex.h', set WANTHSREGEX=yes in the 'Configuration',
  -and submit a <A HREF="http://bugs.apache.org/">Problem Report</A>
  -indicating you needed to do this for your platform.  Include the 
  -output of the command "uname -a".  Thanks!
  +<P>Apache 1.2.6 is also available for download, though we strongly
  +urge you to use the 1.3 server.  We will not be putting significant
  +effort towards supporting the 1.2 series.
