Beta: None

Apache 1.3.4 is the current stable release. Users of Apache 1.3.3 and earlier should look at upgrading to this version. Read the Guide to 1.3.4 for information about changes between 1.3.3 and 1.3.4 and between 1.2 and 1.3.4.

Under Development

Patches for bugs in Apache 1.3.4 will be made available in the apply_to_1.3.4 subdirectory of the patches directory on the Apache site. Some new features and other unofficial patches are available in the 1.3 patches directory. For details of all previously reported bugs, see the Apache bug database and known bugs pages. Many common configuration questions are answered in the Apache FAQ.

ApacheBench Updated

The ApacheBench program, which can be used to test performance of an Apache installation, has been overhauled. The manual has been brought up to date with the program options, and it can now output an HTML table. ApacheBench is the program ab in the src/surpport directory.

Apache FAQ Re-organised

The Apache FAQ has been re-organised to make it easier to find answers. The questions have been split into different categories, such as "Building Apache", "URL Rewriting" and "Dynamic Content".
