Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT] Apache HTTP Server 2.3.8-alpha Released
Date Tue, 31 Aug 2010 14:10:33 GMT
                Apache HTTP Server 2.3.8-alpha Released

   The Apache Software Foundation and the Apache HTTP Server Project are
   pleased to announce the release of version 2.3.8-alpha of the Apache HTTP
   Server ("Apache").  This version of Apache is principally an alpha release
   to test new technology and features that are incompatible or too large for
   the stable 2.2.x branch. This alpha release should not be presumed to
   be compatible with binaries built against any prior or future version.

   This release is expected to be the last alpha release; subsequent releases
   will be beta releases as we move towards 2.4.0-GA.

   Apache HTTP Server 2.3.8-alpha is available for download from:

   Apache 2.3 offers numerous enhancements, improvements, and performance
   boosts over the 2.2 codebase.  For an overview of new features
   introduced since 2.3 please see:

   Please see the CHANGES_2.3 file, linked from the download page, for a
   full list of changes.
   This release includes the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) version 1.4.2
   and APR-Util version 1.3.9 in a separate -deps tarball.  The APR libraries
   must be upgraded for all features of httpd to operate correctly.

   This release builds on and extends the Apache 2.2 API.  Modules written
   for Apache 2.2 will need to be recompiled in order to run with Apache
   2.3, and require minimal or no source code changes.
