Apache HTTP Server 2.2 is focused on offering incremental improvements over previous releases that either make it easier to extend the server or expand its suitability towards new uses. Key new features of 2.2 include: a refactored authentication system, a new proxy engine, and a production-quality caching system.
This new release builds upon the foundation previously offered in Apache HTTP Server 2.0.
Topics that will be discussed in this session include:
- Overview of new features present in Apache HTTP Server 2.0
- Meaning and implication of new versioning scheme
- Ease of use in writing new authentication modules
- Benefits gained from a production-quality caching system
- Support for Tomcat's AJP out of the box as well as load balancing in proxy
- Administrator and developer flexibility gained by using mod_filter
- TLS Connection Upgrade support
