  Added:       info     in_the_news.xml
  Log:
  Add the XML source for the httpd.apache.org/in_the_news page.  Note that
  we didn't break out what type the story is (ASF, httpd, XML), but this
  could be added later and would solve the www.apache.org/in_the_news
  vs httpd.apache.org/in_the_news problem.
  
  Edit this file to add new stories, then run some XSLT program to generate
  the actual page.  The only thing the XSL doesn't do is add those nifty
  navigation links for different years.

Xalan. Sun also play a significant part in Apache's Java projects. Though nobody has suggested

it seems inevitable that the corporate and hacker cultures may well clash. This weekend seems
a good example of this."

   <title>AOLserver faster than Apache?</title>
   <url>http://weblogs.userland.com/qube/2000/06/26</url>
   <publication>Qube Corner</publication>
   <date>20000626</date>
  <comment>
  Qube Quorner reveal that Apache 1.3.12 comes second to AOLserver 3.0 in terms of requests/second
and transfer speeds. Benchmarks do not give a true picture of the speed of a web server, since
they provide an environment unlike the real use of the software. Commercial software is often
tuned to perform well in benchmarks, so a good performance simply indicates that the software
works well for that benchmark, not that it has good real-world performance.

  It has achieved dominance in a crucial market that Microsoft and Netscape have struggled
