        Apache Traffic Server v4.0.1 Released

The Apache Software Foundation and the Apache Traffic Server project are pleased to announce
the release of Apache Traffic Server v4.0.1! This is our latest stable release, and is immediately
available for download at


This is the culmination of over a year's worth of work on features and bug fixes. Some facts
about this release since our last stable release:

	* There are contributions from 59 individuals
	* Over 1,300 commits in Git
	* 446 Jira tickets were closed

Upgrading from the previous v3.2 release to v4.0 should be done with care, since the cache
is not backwards compatible. This means upgrading will cause the cache to be reinitialized.
More details on upgrading is available on the Wiki:


There's a number of new features in this major release, the highlights from the Wiki includes:

	* Assign URLs to specific storage units.
	* HTTP transaction buffering control
