Apache 2.0alpha9 Released
-------------------------

The Apache Group is pleased to announce the release of the ninth public
alpha release of Apache 2.0.  This is scheduled to be the last alpha release,
although we will not release a beta until it is ready, so we may require
another alpha.

Apache 2.0 offers numerous enhancements, improvements and performance
boosts over the 1.3 codebase. The most visible and noteworthy addition
is the ability to run Apache in a hybrid thread/process mode on any
platform that supports both threads and processes.  This has shown to
improve the scalability of the Apache HTTPD server significantly in
our early testing, on some versions of Unix.  With this version of Apache,
we have also added support for filtered I/O.  This allows modules to modify
the output of other modules before it is sent to the client.  This release also
greatly improves the performance and robustness of Apache on the
Microsoft Windows Operating Systems.  Lastly we are proud to announce
support for BeOS in this version of the server.

Included in this alpha is a pre-alpha version of mod_proxy.  Mod_proxy
is not at the same level as the rest of the server, and should be enabled
only by people who are very interested in working with the code.  Mod_proxy
is not at the same level as the rest of the server, and should be enabled
only by people who are very interested in working with the code.  Mod_proxy
has lost some functionality in this alpha, because of a code re-org, the
maintainers are working to get mod_proxy running again.

Apache 2.0a9 under UNIX has undergone some testing, but there are some
known issues in the current release (hey, it is an "alpha" for a
reason!). It is intended for developers and experienced Apache HTTPD
administrators to play around with and work on. It is not a production
