Subject Re: [Bug 55841] Misleading news items on bugfix releases ("This version of httpd is a major release of the [...]")
Date Wed, 13 Jan 2016 09:21:35 GMT
The bug report seems quite clear to me. It's saying that by having a description of all the
new features in the 2.4 branch as a whole under a title that names a specific minor release
is misleading. To this day the project home page implies that "Loadable MPMs, major improvements
to OCSP support" and so forth, are features newly introduced in 2.4.18.

The issue could be fixed simply be reworking this sentence:

This version of httpd is a major release of the 2.4 stable branch, and represents the best
available version of Apache HTTP Server. New features include Loadable MPMs, major improvements
to OCSP support, mod_lua, Dynamic Reverse Proxy configuration, Improved Authentication/Authorization,
FastCGI Proxy, New Expression Parser, and a Small Object Caching API.

.. as ..

This version of httpd is a *patch level* release of the 2.4 stable branch, and represents
the best available version of Apache HTTP Server. New features *in the 2.4 branch* include
Loadable MPMs, major improvements to OCSP support, mod_lua, Dynamic Reverse Proxy configuration,
Improved Authentication/Authorization, FastCGI Proxy, New Expression Parser, and a Small Object
Caching API.
