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 2.0a6
  *) Add support to Apache and APR for dsos on OS/390.  [Greg Ames]

  *) Add a chunking filter to Apache.  This brings us one step closer
     to removing BUFF. [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Apache 2.0 has been completely documented using Scandoc.  The
     docs can be generated by running 'make docs'.  [Ryan Bloom]

  *) Add filtered I/O to Apache.  This is based on bucket brigades,
     Currently the buckets still use BUFF under the covers, but that
     should change quickly.  The only currently written filter is the
     core filter which just calls ap_bwrite.  [The Apache Group]

  *) APR locks on Unix: Let APR_LOCKALL locks work when APR isn't
     built with thread support.  [Jeff Trawick]

  *) Abort configuration if --with-layout was specified and there's
     no layout definition file.  [Ken Coar]

  *) Add support for '--with-port=n' option to configure.  [Ken Coar]

  *) Add support for extension methods for the Allow response header
     field, and an API routine for accessing r->allowed and the
     list of extension methods in a unified manner.  [Ken Coar]

  *) mod_cern_meta: fix broken file reading loop in scan_meta_file().
     [Rob Simonson ]

  *) Get xlate builds working again.  The apr renaming in 2.0a5 broke
     APACHE_XLATE builds.  [Jeff Trawick]

  *) A configuration file parsing problem was fixed.  When the
     configuration file started with an IfModule/IfDefine container,
     only the last statement in the container would be retained.

     [Jeff Trawick]
