                Apache HTTP Server 2.2.0 Released

The Apache Software Foundation and The Apache HTTP Server Project are
pleased to announce the release of version 2.2.0 of the Apache HTTP
Server ("Apache").

We consider this release to be the best version of Apache available, and
encourage users of all prior versions to upgrade.

Apache HTTP Server 2.2.0 is available for download from:

  http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi

Apache 2.2 offers numerous enhancements, improvements, and performance
boosts over the 2.0 codebase.  For an overview of new features
introduced since 2.0 please see:

  http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/new_features_2_2.html

Please see the CHANGES_2.2 file, linked from the download page, for a
full list of changes.

This release includes the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) version 1.2.2
bundled with the tar and zip distributions.  The APR libraries libapr,
libaprutil, and (on Win32) libapriconv must all be updated to ensure
binary compatibility and address many known platform bugs.

This release has been through extensive testing, including live at some
of the world's busiest sites, and is now considered stable.  This means
that modules and applications developed for Apache 2.2.0 will be both
source- and binary-compatible with future 2.2.x releases.  This release
builds on and extends the Apache 2.0 API. Modules written for Apache 2.0
will need to be recompiled in order to run with Apache 2.2, but no
substantial reworking should be necessary.

Known Issues

Some non-showstopping issues were found during the 2.2.0 release
and testing cycle:

  * mod_dbd and mod_authn_dbd are absent from the Windows build
    environment. A patch to correct this is available from:

    http://www.apache.org/dist/httpd/patches/apply_to_2.2.0/

  * If you are installing on a system with apr/apr-util 1.0 or 1.1
    installed, you must build apr/apr-util 1.2 manually. See:

    http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.2/install.html#requirements

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