Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT] Apache HTTP Server (httpd) 2.2.26 Released
Date Mon, 18 Nov 2013 13:13:25 GMT
                     Apache HTTP Server 2.2.26 Released

 The Apache Software Foundation and the Apache HTTP Server Project are
 pleased to announce the release of version 2.2.26 of the Apache HTTP
 Server ("Apache").  This version of Apache is principally a bug fix
 maintenance release.

 We consider the Apache HTTP Server 2.4 release to be the best version
 of Apache available, and encourage users of 2.2 and all prior versions
 to upgrade.  This 2.2 maintenance release is offered for those unable
 to upgrade at this time.  For further details, see:

 Apache HTTP Server 2.4 and 2.2.26 are available for download from:

 Please see the CHANGES_2.2 file, linked from the download page, for a
 full list of changes.  A condensed list, CHANGES_2.2.26 includes only
 those changes introduced since the prior 2.2 release.  A summary of all 
 of the security vulnerabilities addressed in this and earlier releases 
 is available:

 This release includes the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) version 1.4.8
 and APR Utility Library (APR-util) version 1.5.2, bundled with the tar
 and zip distributions.  The APR libraries libapr and libaprutil (and
 on Win32, libapriconv version 1.2.1) must all be updated to ensure
 binary compatibility and address many known security and platform bugs.
 APR-util version 1.5 represents a minor version upgrade from earlier
 httpd 2.2 source distributions.

 This release builds on and extends the Apache 2.0 API and is superceeded
 by the Apache 2.4 API.  Modules written for Apache 2.0 or 2.4 will need
 to be recompiled in order to run with Apache 2.2, and most will require
 minimal or no source code changes.

 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 (other
 than the Prefork MPM), you must ensure that any modules you will be
 using (and the libraries they depend on) are thread-safe.
