For the past couple years, the Apache 2 series has been in active development
and used at various websites. On Saturday, the Apache HTTPD
Project announced that they recommend version 2.0.35 for use
on production sites and should be used instead of 1.3.x
According to the announcement, the Apache 2.0.x series has better performance over 1.3,
I/O layering and filtering, improved HTTP proxy support,
