  -Apache 1.3.3 Released
  +Apache 1.3.4 Released
   The Apache Group is pleased to announce the release of version
  -1.3.3 of the Apache HTTP server.
  +1.3.4 of the Apache HTTP server.
  -This new Apache version is a bugfix release, primarily to fix a
  -serious problem with server error reporting introduced in 1.3.2.
  -This affected the functionality of most custom ErrorDocuments and
  -of some modules that depend on special error output (e.g., mod_speling).
  -A side-effect bug that resulted in incorrect error reporting of
  -nonexistent .htaccess files has also been fixed.
  +This new Apache version incorporates over 90 significant improvements
  +to the server, including avoidance of some denial-of-service attacks,
  +support for 3rd-party WebDAV modules, a complete overhaul of content
  +negotiation, optional column sorting for fancy indexes, the ability to
  +set a DefaultLanguage, and many fixes to improve consistency, portability,
  +and squish bugs.  A complete listing is provided in the src/CHANGES file.
  -Additional changes in this release consist of new supported platforms,
  -Win32 and Unix portability fixes, ErrorDocument environment enhancements,
  -improved protocol behavior to match the HTTP/1.1 revised specification,
  -and assorted other features or fixes.  Users should review the CHANGES file
  -and decide on their upgrade plans.  We consider Apache 1.3.3 to be the
  -most stable version of Apache available and we strongly recommend that
  -users of older versions, especially of the 1.1.x and 1.2.x family, upgrade
  -as soon as possible.
  +Of special note are the many changes to the Apache configuration process.
  +The default path layout generated by the "configure" script has been
  +changed to be more consistent with the traditional Apache layout, and
  +several new command-line options have been added to make compilation
  +easier.  Please see the README.configure file for complete information.
  +In addition, we have moved all of the server configuration directives
  +to a single file (httpd.conf-dist) and improved the examples for first-time
  +installers.  Finally, a few of the rarely-used command-line options
  +for httpd have been changed to be more consistent with the help options
  +of other programs.
  -Apache 1.3.3 is available for download from
  +We consider Apache 1.3.4 to be the best version of Apache available and
  +we strongly recommend that users of older versions, especially of the
  +1.1.x and 1.2.x family, upgrade as soon as possible.  No further releases
  +will be made in the 1.2.x family.
