This should allow modules to modify the output of other modules before it is sent to the client. The version includes support for IPv6 on any platform that supports IPv6.
Version 2.0.40 is known to work on many versions of Unix, BeOS, OS/2, Windows, and Netware. Because of many of the advancements in Apache 2.0, the initial release of Apache is expected to perform equally well on all supported platforms.
