Apache 2.0alpha5 Released Page 4
*) Integrate the mod_dav module for WebDAV protocol handling. This adds the dav and dav_fs modules, the SDBM library, and additional XML handling utilities. [Greg Stein] *) Clean out obsolete names (from httpd.h) for the HTTP Status Codes [Greg Stein] *) Update the lib/expat-lite/ library (bring forward changes from the Apache 1.3 repository). [Greg Stein] *) If sizeof(long long) == sizeof(long), then prefer long in APR configure.in. [Dave Hill
] *) Add ap_sendfile for Tru64 Unix. Also, add an error message for machines where sendfile is detected, but nobody has written ap_sendfile. [Dave Hill ] *) Compile fixes in mod_mmap_static. [Victor J. Orlikowski] *) ab would start up more connections than needed, then quit when the desired number were finished. Also fixed a logic error involving ab keepalives. [Victor J. Orlikowski] *) WinNT: Implement non-blocking pipes with timeouts to communicate with CGIs. Apache 2.0a4 had non-blocking pipes but without timeouts (i.e, if a timeout was specified, the pipe reverted to a full blocking pipe). Now the behaviour is more in line with Unix non-blocking pipes. [Bill Stoddard] *) WinNT: Implement accept socket reuse. Using mod_file_cache to cache open file handles along with accept socket reuse enables Apache 2.0 to serve non-keepalive requests for static files at 3x the rate of Apache 1.3.(e.g, Apache 1.3 will serve 400 rps and Apache 2.0 will serve almost 1200 rps on my system). [Bill Stoddard] *) Merge mod_mmap_static function into mod_file_cache. mod_file_cache supports two config directives, mmapfile (same behavious as mod_mmap_static) and cachefile. Use the cachefile directive to cache open file handles. This directive only works on systems that have implemented the ap_sendfile API. cachefile works today
