I just recently went through an upgrade from 1.3 to 2.2 (any reason why you want the intermediate
branch of 2.0?). I started out simply by compiling and installing 2.2, then trying to start
it using my existing 1.3 config file and watching what happened.

It looks to me that about 95% of the directives and options are compatible so most simple
configs will probably just work. Sometimes you'll get a few syntax errors because a directive
has been deprecated so you have to look at that and see how to achieve the same effect in
the new syntax.

For me, the two biggest changes I noticed were:
- cache directives have changed a bit: 2.2 now uses an extra daemon (htcacheclear) to clear
the cache and has dropped this functionality (and its directives) from the core code.
- "Port" is gone: this forces you to use "Listen" (which you should've been doing anyway :-).
This has a subtle effect with self-referential URLs and UseCanonicalName.
- Couple of options were different...

It wasn't too much of a big deal and within about a day 2.2 was running fine.

Rgds,
Owen Boyle
