Apache 2.0 STATUS:
Last modified at [$Date: 1999/08/27 18:57:17 $]
Release:
2.0: In pre-alpha development
Plan:
* Vague goal of an alpha or beta release in 1999. Commit-then-review
is active.
RELEASE SHOWSTOPPERS:
* CGI doesn't work
Status: Ben Laurie is working on this.
* mod_status doesn't work
Status: Manoj Kasichainula <manojk@io.com> is working on this. A
patch has been posted that starts to fix this:
(<19990825025653.A19065@samosa.mindspring.com> and
<19990825022146.A10096@io.com>)
* suEXEC doesn't work
Ben Laurie's work to fix CGIs will also fix this.
* Windows NT port isn't done
Status: Bill is working on this through his MPM work, and Ryan
is with APR.
* Current 2.0 code is not tested on many Unix platforms. Make 2.0
work on most, if not all the systems 1.3 did
Status: Autoconf and APR will get us most of the way there.
* The module API is a weird combination of the old table and the new
hook system. Switch completely to the new hook system
Status: Ben Laurie is working on this.
RELEASE NON-SHOWSTOPPERS BUT WOULD BE REAL NICE TO WRAP THESE UP:
(none listed)
Other bugs that need fixing:
* MaxRequestsPerChild measures connections, not requests.
* Regex containers don't work in an intutive way
Status: No one has come up with an efficient way to fix this
behavior. Dean has suggested getting rid of regex containers
completely.
Other features that need writing:
* Switch to autoconf, et al. for configuration.
* Use APR to get rid of more platform dependancies.
Status: Ryan Bloom <rbb@raleigh.ibm.com> is working on this.
* Finish infrastructure in core for async MPMs
Status: ?
* Work on other MPMs. Possible MPMs discussed or in progress include:
- David Reid's <abb37@dial.pipex.com> Beos MPM
Status: in progress
- Dean Gaudet's async MPM
Status: ?
- Zach Brown's <zab@zabbo.net> Linux siginfo MPM
Status: ?
Documentation that needs writing:
* The concept of MPMs, especially if we ship more than one MPM for a
given platform
* New directives in the various MPMs
* API documentation
Status: Ben Laurie has written some hooks documentation
(apache-2.0/htdocs/hooks.html)
Available Patches:
* Mike Abbott's <mja@trudge.engr.sgi.com> patches to improve
performance
Status: These were written for 1.3, and are awaiting a port to
2.0
Open issues:
* What do we do about mod_proxy?
* Which MPMs will be included with Apache 2.0?
