Subject Re: [users@httpd] Apache HTTP Server 2.4.x for Windows?
Date Sun, 16 Dec 2012 23:26:03 GMT
This arguement has been going on the HTTPD-dev list recently too.
Defining some terms should answer your question.

Binaries are provided by volunteers who have commit access to the HTTPD
project. They are not formally provided by the Apache Software Foundation.

There is ongoing discussion on the dev list about a way forward with regard
to Windows binary distribution. In the mean time, try the ApacheLounge
binaries. (if I was not using a mobile device, I would post a link, but it
should be easy enough to find anyway.)

That said, please do not email the dev list to complain about the lack of
"official" binaries. If you have any experience in automating the build
process on Windows, that might be appreciated.
