  Modified:    .        in_the_news.html
  Log:
  Step two.  Update the 2000 stories.  This is actually from a XML database
  of stories that we've been working on keeping up to date to use in
  Apache Week.  I'll commit the source XML and the XSL stylesheet later.  Thanks
  to Neil Castle and Lisa Armstrong for their work helping to collate and
  format the list.
  
  Step three will be to separate these based on project, or work out the whole
  www.apache.org/in_the_news vs httpd.apache.org/in_the_news stuff.

works well for that benchmark, not that it has good real-world performance.

ApacheCon 2000". 
  + <EM>
  +"It's been a week now since ApacheCon 2000 ended. There's been some discussion over the
events, with the release of Apache 2.0a being the main topic of conversation. But AC2K was
more than just the venue that 2.0a was announced. It was an important and noteworthy conference
in it's own right."

  +The NetWare version of Apache is examined in a Network World Fusion Newsletter. Over the
past few years Novell have shipped a couple of different Web servers with NetWare, but now
Apache is available for this system. 
  + <EM>
  +"The NetWare version of Apache 1.3 is still in the "experimental" stage, and it (so far)
only runs on NetWare 5 or 5.1. Nevertheless, if you support a major Web site and ... if you
want to take advantage of the hundreds of Web server applications available (also for free)
for Apache - it would be worth your effort to download and test the new Apache in your environment."

application. 
  +It has achieved dominance in a crucial market that Microsoft and Netscape have struggled
mightily to conquer. Both companies have invested massive amounts of money and programming
skills into server software programs -- and yet it's Apache, a freeware application, that
is installed on just over half of all publicly accessible Web servers."
