The first release of the 2.4.x series sees a raft of improvements for the HTTP server

The Apache Software Foundation and the Apache HTTP Server
Project are pleased to announce the GA release of version 2.4.1 of
the Apache HTTP Server, the first GA release of the new 2.4.x

Compared to the previous 2.2 series, a number of
improvements have been incorporated such as the ability to build
multiple MPMs as loadable modules at compile time, with
he MPM of choice configured at run time. Also,
there’s better support for asynchronous read/write for supporting
MPMs and platforms plus the added bonus of a reduced memory
footprint, despite a large amount of new features.

There’s a load of new modules too, all of which can be

This release builds on and
extends the Apache 2.2 API. Modules written for Apache 2.2 will
need to be recompiled in order to run with Apache 2.4, and may
require minimal source code changes. To run Apache HTTP 2.4, you
need the Apache Portable Runtime (APR) version 1.4.x and
APR-Util version 1.4.x. The APR libraries must be upgraded for all
features of httpd to operate correctly.

You can download the stable release here. After 17 years of
innovation, the next generation of the HTTP server is
