Apache HTTP Server 2.2.2 Released
The Apache Software Foundation and The Apache HTTP Server Project are
pleased to announce the release of version 2.2.2 of the Apache HTTP
We consider this release to be the best version of Apache available, and
encourage users of all prior versions to upgrade.
Apache HTTP Server 2.2.2 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.
Apache HTTP Server 1.3.35 and 2.0.58 legacy releases are also available
with minor bugfixes. See the appropriate CHANGES from the url above.
The Apache HTTP Project developers strongly encourages all users to
migrate to Apache 2.2, as only limited maintenance is performed on these
This release includes the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) version 1.2.7
bundled with the tar and zip distributions. The APR libraries libapr,
libaprutil, and (on Win32) libapriconv must all be updated to ensure
binary compatibility and address many known platform bugs.
This release has been through extensive testing, including live at some
of the world's busiest sites, and is now considered stable. This means
that modules and applications developed for Apache 2.2.2 will be both
source- and binary-compatible with future 2.2.x releases. 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, but no
substantial reworking should be necessary.
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, you must
ensure that any modules you will be using (and the libraries they depend
on) are thread-safe.
