You will find that the 3.3 tree is pretty nearly as big an architectural change
(from 3.2) as is 4.0 (rather than just being maintenance / bug fixes like the
Apache 1.3 / 2.0 example) ... but it's still academic because no one seems to
want to finish what they started.

Therefore, I'm going to spend the weekend integrating all the bug reports and
fixes I can find into 3.2 -- please check the CVS commit reports and remind me
of any that I miss.  In particular, I would like people to check out the
changes to MOD_JSERV and MOD_JK ... I don't have great facilities to test these
exhaustively, so I'm going to be taking the word of some of the patch poster.

Maybe we can get a release candidate available by midweek?
