Subject Apache HTTP Server 2.2.14 Released
Date Mon, 05 Oct 2009 22:05:15 GMT
                       Apache HTTP Server 2.2.14 Released

   The Apache Software Foundation and the Apache HTTP Server Project are
   pleased to announce the release of version 2.2.14 of the Apache HTTP
   Server ("Apache").  This version of Apache is principally a security
   and bug fix release.  Notably, this version bundles the APR Library
   version 1.3.9, which addresses a security concern with the Prefork
   and Event MPMs on Solaris 10.

   We consider this release to be the best version of Apache available,
   and encourage users of all prior versions to upgrade.

   Apache HTTP Server 2.2.14 is available for download from:


   Apache 2.2 offers numerous enhancements, improvements, and
   performance boosts over the 2.0 codebase.  For an overview of new
   features introduced since 2.0 please see:


   Please see the CHANGES_2.2 file, linked from the download page, for a
   full list of changes.  A condensed list, CHANGES_2.2.14 provides the
   complete list of changes since 2.2.14. A summary of security
   vulnerabilities which were addressed in the previous 2.2.13 and
   earlier releases is available:


   Apache HTTP Server 1.3.41 and 2.0.63 legacy releases are also
   currently available.  See the appropriate CHANGES from the url above.
   See the corresponding CHANGES files linked from the download page.
   The Apache HTTP Project developers strongly encourage all users to
   migrate to Apache 2.2, as only limited maintenance is performed on
   these legacy versions.

   This release includes the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) version 1.3.9
   bundled with the tar and zip distributions.  The APR libraries libapr
   and libaprutil (and on Win32, libapriconv) must all be updated to
   ensure binary compatibility and address many known security and
   platform bugs.

   This release builds on and extends the Apache 2.0 API.  Modules
   written for Apache 2.0 will need to be recompiled in order to run
   with Apache 2.2, and require minimal or no source code changes.


   When upgrading or installing this version of Apache, please bear in
   mind that if you intend to use Apache with one of the threaded MPMs
   (other than the Prefork MPM), you must ensure that any modules you
   will be using (and the libraries they depend on) are thread-safe.
