Apache HTTP Server 2.4.1 Released
The Apache HTTP Server project announced the release of a major new version of the Apache HTTP Server today. The release announcement lists the following major enhancements:
• Improved performance (lower resource utilization and better concurrency)
• Reduced memory usage
• Asyncronous I/O support
• Dynamic reverse proxy configuration
• Performance on par, or better, than pure event-driven Web servers
• More granular timeout and rate/resource limiting capability
• More finely-tuned caching support, tailored for high traffic servers and proxies.
In addition, there are quite a few new modules and changes designed to make configuration and support easier for both Cloud-based and traditional "terrestrial" deployments. Actually, you should just check out the New Features summary to see all the coolness in this new version.
