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 2.0a8
  *) Add a directive to mod_mime so that filters can be associated with
     a given mime-type.
     [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Get multi-views working again.  We were setting the path_info
     field incorrectly if we couldn't find the specified file.
     [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Fix 304 processing.  The core should never try to send the headers
     down the filter stack.  Always, just setup the table in the request
     record, and let the header filter convert it to data that is ready
     for the network.
     [Ryan Bloom]

  *) More fixes for the proxy.  There are still bugs in the proxy code,
     but this has now proxied www.yahoo.com and www.ntrnet.net (my ISP)
     successfully.
     [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Fix params for apr_getaddrinfo() call in connect proxy handler.
     [Chuck Murcko]

  *) APR: Add new apr_getopt_long function to handle long options.
     [B. W. Fitzpatrick ]

  *) APR: Change apr_connect() to take apr_sockaddr_t instead of hostname.
     Add generic apr_create_socket().  Add apr_getaddrinfo() for doing
     hostname resolution/address string parsing and building
     apr_sockaddr_t.  Add apr_get_sockaddr() for getting the address
     of one of the apr_sockaddr_t structures for a socket.  Change
     apr_bind() to take apr_sockaddr_t.  [David Reid and Jeff Trawick]

  *) Remove the BUFF from the HTTP proxy.  This is still a bit ugly, but
     I have proxied pages with it, cleanup will commence soon.
