Latest commit f4d886f Jan 4, 2017


This is mod_perl version 2.0

*** Prerequisites ***

  Dynamic mod_perl (DSO):    Apache 2.0.47 - 2.4.23.
  Static mod_perl:           Apache 2.0.51 - 2.4.23.

  Newer Apache versions may work with this version of mod_perl.  If
  not, the svn version likely will, which can be obtained from:

  Any stable version of Perl currently in support by the Perl community,
  as described in recent Perl distributions' "perlpolicy.pod" document.

  Newer Perl versions may work with this version of mod_perl.  If not,
  the svn version likely will (see above).

  Many older Perl versions also work with this version of mod_perl:
  Perls back to version 5.8.2 (and possibly earlier in some build
  configurations) are currently believed to work, but this is not
  guaranteed to be the case, either now or in the future.

*** Status ***

mod_perl is currently considered stable.

There is currently a known test failure on Windows when using Perls built
with the PERL_IMPLICIT_SYS build option enabled (which it is by default):

  t/modperl/env.t (Fails many tests)

Four other test scripts are also known to fail with Apache 2.4.x on
Windows, with or without PERL_IMPLICIT_SYS:

  t/protocol/echo_block.t (Fails tests 2-3)
  t/protocol/echo_nonblock.t (Fails test 2)
  t/protocol/echo_timeout.t (Fails tests 2-5)
  t/protocol/pseudo_http.t (Fails tests 3-8 and 11-13)

*** Documentation ***

Documentation can be found in the docs/ directory. Currently they
don't get installed on 'make install'. Certain API documentation can
be found in docs/api/.  The online version is at

*** Todo ***

mod_perl-2.0 is not 100% feature complete with the 1.xx version.
See the files in the todo/ directory for what remains to be done. Some
of those features will be implemented after 2.0 is released. The goal
is to empty the file todo/release and document/test/verify the API
that's going to be supported by 2.0. More API will be supported post
2.0 release.
