Apache HTTP Server 2.2.19 Released

The Apache HTTP Server project team has released version 2.2.19 (release announcement), which corrects regressions introduced in the recently released 2.2.18 version.  This regression wound up breaking a lot of third-party modules.  If you recently upgraded to 2.2.18 and began experiencing problems like high cpu utilization by httpd workers, try upgrading to 2.2.19.

You can download Apache 2.2.19 from a mirror near you.
