Apache httpd 2.4 - one step closer!

Posted by Jim Jagielski on Monday, March 7. 2011 in ASF

Today we released the first public beta of the next-gen version of Apache httpd, version 2.4. This release is officially called Apache httpd-2.3.11-beta, since we use odd/even numbering (for the minor version number) to signify alpha/beta vs. stable releases. Most work has been done in improving performance and stability, but as well as adding lots of useful features, especially as we see the demands placed on web servers by cloud environments. This means that the (reverse) proxy module had gotten a lot of special care and attention. But there are also modules to help with more fine-grained control over timeouts and even a basic bandwidth limiting module bundled in. With this release and the coming of Apache httpd 2.4 GA, you'll see the popularity and usage of Apache increase even more, as it becomes the web server for the cloud, bar none. Cheers!
