hours from http://dev.apache.org/from-cvs/apache-2.0/ - please
download and test if you feel brave. We don't guarantee anything
except that it will take up disk space, but if you have the time and
skills, please give it a spin on your platforms.
 
Apache has been the most popular web server on the Internet since
April of 1996. The May 2000 WWW server site survey by Netcraft (see:
http://www.netcraft.co.uk/Survey/) found that more web servers were
using Apache than any other software running on more than 60% of the
Internet web servers.

Changes with Apache 2.0a7
  *) Fix mod_log_config so that it compiles cleanly with BUFFERED_LOGS
     [Mike Abbott *lt;mja@sgi.comgt;]
 
  *) Remove ap_send_fb.  This is no longer used in Apache, and it doesn't
     make much sense, because Apache uses buckets instead of BUFFs now.
     [Ryan Bloom]
 
  *) send_the_file now falls back to a read/write loop on platforms that
     do not have sendfile.
     [Ryan Bloom and Brian Havard]
 
  *) Install apachectl correctly, and substitute the proper values so
     that it works again.  [Ryan Bloom]
 
  *) Better(??) handle platforms that lack sendfile().
     [Jim Jagielski]
 
  *) APR now has UUID generation/formatting/parsing support.
     [Greg Stein]
 
  *) Begin the http_filter.  This is an input filter that understands
     the absolute basic amount required to parse an HTTP Request.  The
     goal is to be able to split headers from request body before passing
     the data back to the other filters.
     [Ryan Bloom]
 
  *) Bring forward from 1.3.13 the config directory implementation
     [Jim Jagielski]                                                             

  *) install apxs if it is created
     [Ryan Bloom]
 
  *) Added APR_IS_STATUS_condition test macros to eliminate canonical error
