Subject ANNOUNCE: Apache AxKit 1.5.1
Date Tue, 19 Mar 2002 21:59:04 GMT
Hello everybody,

  The AxKit team are proud to announce the first release of the AxKit
codebase under the Apache banner. A small team of hard working developers
have feverishly worked away to bring you this release.

  AxKit is a high quality XML application server, built using the Apache
framework, and the mod_perl Perl+Apache integration system. This gives you
a high performance server with most of the time spent in compiled code,
combined with the dynamic compilation capabilities that Perl brings you,
integrating great Apache and XML technologies such as XSLT, XSP, and

  As usual, the code is available for download directly from axkit.org, at
http://axkit.org/download/, or via Perl's CPAN. Please use CPAN if you can
as it spreads the bandwidth usage out. Also available only on CPAN is an
AxKit-Needs distribution, which you will find in
http://cpan.valueclick.com/modules/by-authors/id/M/MS/MSERGEANT/ (may take
a few hours to synchronise around the globe). This file contains
everything you need to get an AxKit server up and running as fast as
possible, including all prerequisite C libraries and Perl modules.

  For those of you who are new to AxKit, please also note that this month
perl.com <URL:http://www.perl.com/> are running an introductory article on
AxKit, which begins a series of articles from initial installation to
building large scale dynamic web sites.

This release is mostly a bug fix release over AxKit 1.5, fixing a few
minor issues listed below:

 - AxKit now allows XSP pages to return a HTTP result code to make
redirects and other HTTP status codes easier.

 - Added options to allow form/querystring params to *not* be passed to
XSLT processing.

 - A number of XSP bug fixes, including broken namespaces prefix issues.

 - Fixed all Plugins to return the constant OK, as needed.

 - All plugins renamed to Apache::AxKit::Plugin namespace (old installs
should continue to work by virtue of the old file remaining).

 - added SimpleTaglib, a powerful TaglibHelper alternative that uses Perl
5.6.0 method attributes to define functions which are taglibs.

 - added beginnings of a demo site, not yet fully functional, but already
contains some useful example code.
