Apache 2.4 Comes Out As Web Server On Steroids
The Apache Software Foundation officially released the Apache 2.4 today as the first major update to this leading open-source web-server in more than a half-decade. Apache 2.4 is slated to deliver superior performance to its 2.2 predecessor and better compete with the growingly-popular NGINX web-server.
Besides much faster performance, among the many enhancements to the Apache 2.4 HTTP Server is better a-synchronous support in its core, run-time loadable MPMs, reduced memory usage compared to Apache 2.2.x, several new modules, enhancements to existing modules, and much more.
For those web administrators out there, details on some of the new Apache 2.4 features are available from the Apache documentation. The brief official announcement is available here.
