Apache 2.0.28 Released as Beta
(Nov 16th, 19:05:09 )

The Apache Group is proud to announce the twenty-eighth release of Apache 2.0. This is the second public beta of Apache 2.0. This release has been tested thoroughly and has been running the web site since Nov. 9, 2001.

Apache 2.0 offers numerous enhancements, improvements and performance boosts over the 1.3 code base. The most visible and noteworthy addition is the ability to run Apache in a hybrid thread/process mode on any platform that supports both threads and processes. This has been shown to improve the scalability of the Apache HTTPD server significantly on some versions of Unix in our testing. Apache 2.0 also includes support for filtered I/O. This allows modules to modify the output of other modules before it is sent to the client. Finally, we have included support for IPv6 on any platform that supports IPv6.

This version of Apache is known to work on many versions of Unix, BeOS, OS/2, and Windows. Because of many of the advancements in Apache 2.0, this release of Apache is expected to perform equally well on all supported platforms.

Apache has been the most popular web server on the Internet since April of 1996. The October 2001 WWW server site survey by Netcraft ( found that more web servers were using Apache than any other software running on more than 56% of the Internet web servers.
