Subject Proposed ANNOUNCE for 1.2.2 (II)
Date Thu, 07 Aug 1997 21:02:06 GMT

OK, I've revised the notable changes list and replaced the detailed changes
list by just a hint to src/CHANGES. Because such in-depth details are not
needed in an ANNOUNCE message, I think. And I added a header to the top to
summarize the message (What=ANNOUNCE, Who=Apache, Where=URL, Why=Version) for
the impatient.

Again, feel free to fix me.

|Subject: [ANNOUNCE] Apache 1.2.2 Released
|Newsgroups: comp.infosystems.www.servers.unix

                        Apache webserver 
                         version 1.2.2


We would like to announce the availability of the Apache webserver
software version 1.2.2. It is recommended that users of earlier 
versions of the Apache webserver upgrade their installations.

For in-depth details about every change see the file src/CHANGES 
in the distribution. Notable changes in this release include:

   o  Virtual host <Directory>/<Location> sections now considered
      after the main server <Directory>/<Location> sections, so that
      overrides work properly in all cases.

   o  Added "downgrade-1.0" variable for use with mod_browser
      to downgrade Apache to HTTP/1.0 even when the request was
      of type HTTP/1.1. This can be used to workaround problems with
      the latest MSIE 4.0b2 browser. See the page
      for more details.

   o  Full integration of the last externally available mod_rewrite 
      version into Apache Group's source repository and inclusion of 
      essential bugfixes from the ongoing Apache 1.3 development line. 

   o  A change in 1.2.1 introduced a problem with SIGHUP under 
      Solaris 2.x (up through 2.5.1). This has been fixed now.

See the main Apache website ( for downloading
instructions. This site also includes pointers to many mirror sites that 
may be closer to you.

Share and enjoy!
