Apache HTTP Server 2.3.11-beta Released
The Apache Software Foundation and the Apache HTTP Server Project are
pleased to announce the release of version 2.3.11-beta of the Apache HTTP
Server ("Apache"). This version of Apache is our initial Beta release
of Apache httpd 2.4 to test new technology and features that are incompatible
or too large for the stable 2.2.x branch. This Beta release should not be
presumed to be compatible with binaries built against any prior or future
version, although, as a Beta, the API is in a semi-frozen state.
Apache HTTP Server 2.3.11-beta is available for download from:
Apache 2.3 offers numerous enhancements, improvements, and performance
boosts over the 2.2 codebase. For an overview of new features
introduced since 2.3 please see:
Please see the CHANGES_2.3 file, linked from the download page, for a
full list of changes.
This release includes the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) version 1.4.2
and APR-Util version 1.3.10 in a separate -deps tarball. The APR libraries
must be upgraded for all features of httpd to operate correctly.
This release builds on and extends the Apache 2.2 API. Modules written
for Apache 2.2 will need to be recompiled in order to run with Apache
2.3, and require minimal or no source code changes.
