The November Netcraft Server
Survey still shows Apache gaining server share. It is now
at just over 40%, well ahead of Netscape (14%) and NCSA
(13%). Both Netscape and Microsoft have decreased market
share this month by a small amount.
Apache is being prepared for a public beta release. While
there is currently no date set for the release, the
development work has slowed down to allow the internal
testing of a stable version.
The following items are under development and may be included
in the next release of Apache. See our Apache 1.2
Sneak Preview for other new features in the next release.
When Apache finds a syntax error in a configuration directive
it prints out (or puts into the error log) a short
description of the arguments. In many directives this text
has been fairly minimal. The next release of Apache will have
much better directive help messages. This is particularly
important since in 1.2 you will be able to get a complete
list of directives and their help messages from the command
line, by running httpd -h.
The environment variable REMOTE_PORT is now available to CGI
scripts containing the port of the connection on the remote
machine. This will allow CGI programs to do their own RFC1413
Apache comes with several support programs in the 'support'
directory. Some of these are C programs, and are made with a
Makefile in this directory. However this Makefile does not
use any of the options set when the main Apache server is
configured, such as the compiler or the operating system.
This means that the Makefile has to be hand-configured.
Apache 1.2 will probably be updated so that the configuration
information only needs to be given once (and in 1.2, almost
all configuration information is obtained automatically).
