Since its introduction in 1995, the Apache open-source web server has proven to be the most stable, best performing, and most cost-efficient web server on the market. It is no surprise that Apache is currently the most widely used web server on the Internet. But in April 2002, a new contender appeared on the horizon that is proving to be more efficient, just as cost effective, and every bit as stable as Apache 1.3. You might wonder, what could be better than good quality free software built by an organization of developers who have proven themselves to be the best at what they do? The answer is Apache 2.0.

Apache 2.0 was built by the same group of developers that brought you the web server you now know and love as Apache 1.3. Now in its seventh public release, this new version has so many compelling new features and bug fixes that the Apache Software Foundation is strongly encouraging users to migrate from Apache 1.3 to Apache 2.0.

This AppNote summarizes what's new in Apache 2.0 and explains why you, as a NetWare web services administrator, should consider the upgrade.
