Subject svn commit: r413981 - in /httpd/httpd/dist: Announcement1.3.html Announcement1.3.txt
Date Tue, 13 Jun 2006 20:43:17 GMT
Author: wrowe
Date: Tue Jun 13 13:43:16 2006
New Revision: 413981

URL: http://svn.apache.org/viewvc?rev=413981&view=rev
Log:

  This is the refactoring I suggested prior to release, that we tone down
  the emphasis on 1.3; and further axe references to binary releases for
  anything other than unix for 1.3 legacy support - as proposed on and
  commented to by the dev list.
