+
+<p>
+This release includes the <a href="http://apr.apache.org/">Apache Portable Runtime</a>
+ (APR) version 1.2.2
+bundled with the tar and zip distributions.  The APR libraries libapr,
+libaprutil, and (on Win32) libapriconv must all be updated to ensure
+binary compatibility and address many known platform bugs.
+</p>
+
+<p>
+This release has been through extensive testing, including live at some
+of the world's busiest sites, and is now considered stable.  This means
+that modules and applications developed for Apache 2.2.0 will be both
+source- and binary-compatible with future 2.2.x releases.  This release
+builds on and extends the Apache 2.0 API. Modules written for Apache 2.0
+will need to be recompiled in order to run with Apache 2.2, but no
+substantial reworking should be necessary.

+<h3>Known Issues</h3>
+
+<p>
+Some non-showstopping issues were found during the 2.2.0 release 
+and testing cycle:
+</p>
+<ul>
+   <li>mod_dbd and mod_authn_dbd are absent from the Windows build
+    environment. A patch to correct this is available from:
+    <dd>
+      <dl><a href="http://www.apache.org/dist/httpd/patches/apply_to_2.2.0/">
+      http://www.apache.org/dist/httpd/patches/apply_to_2.2.0/</a></dl>
+    </dd>
+    </li>
+   <li>If you are installing on a system with apr/apr-util 1.0 or 1.1
+    installed, you must build apr/apr-util 1.2 manually. See:
+
+    <dd><dl>
+        <a href="http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/install.html#requirements">
+        http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/install.html#requirements</a>
+    </dl></dd>
+    </li>
+</ul>
+
+<p>
+When upgrading or installing this version of Apache, please bear in mind
+that if you intend to use Apache with one of the threaded MPMs, you must
+ensure that any modules you will be using (and the libraries they depend
+on) are thread-safe.
