  	People just can't figure out how to find the Windows installer..
  	so give them a nudge.  Also fix a couple of typos in the announcement,
  	and get it into CVS.

  Apache 2.0 alpha Released
  The Apache Software Foundation and The Apache Server Project are
  pleased to announce the second alpha release of version 2.0 of the 
  Apache HTTP server.
  A complete listing with detailed descriptions is provided in the
  src/CHANGES file.
  NOTE: This is an alpha release.
  We consider Apache 1.3.12 to be the best version of Apache available and
  we strongly warn you that 2.0 is an alpha release for developers to 
  hammer on. You might not want to use it on production servers!
  Apache 2.0 alpha is available for download from
  Please see the CHANGES_2.0 file in the same directory for a full
  list of changes.
  In general, Apache 2.0 offers several substantial improvements
  over version 1.3, including full Windows support, threaded,
  process and hybrid child management and a fully rewritten
  compatibility layer to potentiall support a wider range of 
  supported platforms.
  Apache is the most popular web server in the known universe; over
  half of the servers on the Internet are running Apache or one of
  its variants.
  IMPORTANT NOTE FOR WIN32 USERS: 2.0 has been written with Win32
  in mind from the beginning. So no longer is Win32 support second 
  to Unix.  However, there is no Windows installer available at this
  early point in the development cycle.
  Thank you for using Apache.

  Apache 2.0alpha3 Released
  The Apache Group is pleased to announce the release of the third public
  alpha release of Apache 2.0.  
  Apache 2.0 offers numerous enhancements, improvements and performance
  boosts over the 1.3 codebase. The most visible and noteworthy addition
  is the ability to run Apache in a hybrid thread/process mode on any 
  platform that supports both threads and processes.  This has shown to
  improve the scalability of the Apache HTTPD server significantly in our
  early testing, on some versions of Unix.  This release also greatly 
  improves the performance and robustness of Apache on Windows Operating 
  Systems.  Lastly we are proud to announce support for BeOS in this 
  version of the server.
  Apache 2.0a3 under UNIX has undergone some testing, there are
  known issues in the current release, including at least one small memory 
  leak.  This should be considered a ``developers version'' including only 
  the source and no pre-compiled binaries. It is anticipated that a 
  binary-release will be available for the first beta release.  If you do
  not feel comfortable compiling code, the Apache Group strongly recommends
  that you wait for a more stable beta release before you try this version. 
  Apache 2.0a3 under Windows has undergone some testing as well.  There
  are known issues in the current release with regards to Apache on windows
  95 and 98.  We are working through those problems, and hope to have them
  fixed for future releases of the 2.0 alpha.
  Apache has been the most popular web server on the Internet since April
  of 1996. The February 2000 WWW server site survey by Netcraft (see: found that more web servers were
  using Apache than any other software, and Apache hit an all time high of,
  running on 58% of the Internet.
  The Apache project has been organized in an attempt to answer some of
  the concerns regarding active development of a public domain HTTP server
  for UNIX. The goal of this project is to provide a secure, efficient and
  extensible server which provides HTTP services in sync with the current
  HTTP standards.
