Subject [Fwd: [users@httpd] [announce] Apache HTTP Server 2.2.0 Released]
Date Thu, 01 Dec 2005 22:31:04 GMT
Yo dude, while the community may not catch/catch up with press, if we
planned to 'announce' Apache 2.2 as an httpd splash at the convention
opening plenary, this sort of just deep sixed that - since I'm pretty
sure most convention attendees follow users@httpd, those who are httpd
users.  Oh - why to users@ and not announce@?  (, as
well as announce@httpd, as after all this is big news.)

Query; you let the mirrors catch up 24 hours, right?  Or you just decided
to burn the extra ASF bandwidth?

Oh, to all who've contributed, congrats!

                 Apache HTTP Server 2.2.0 Released

The Apache Software Foundation and The Apache HTTP Server Project are
pleased to announce the release of version 2.2.0 of the Apache HTTP
Server ("Apache").

We consider this release to be the best version of Apache available, and
encourage users of all prior versions to upgrade.

Apache HTTP Server 2.2.0 is available for download from:

Apache 2.2 offers numerous enhancements, improvements, and performance
boosts over the 2.0 codebase.  For an overview of new features
introduced since 2.0 please see:

Please see the CHANGES_2.2 file, linked from the download page, for a
full list of changes.

This release includes the Apache Portable Runtime (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.

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.

Known Issues

Some non-showstopping issues were found during the 2.2.0 release
and testing cycle:

   * mod_dbd and mod_authn_dbd are absent from the Windows build
     environment. A patch to correct this is available from:

   * 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:

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.
Version: GnuPG v1.2.4 (Darwin)
