* Amos Lattier put out a call for FastCGI problems. Amos is revisiting FastCGI support, so the more you complain the better it will be.

* Paul Everitt has alerted everyone to the latest issue of Linux Magazine, which contains an article "Gold Rush: Venture Capitalists Discover Linux". The article talks about Digital Creations and Hadar Pedhazur at length.


* "htrd" posted an update to his NTUserFolder product. It authenticates Zope users from NT user accounts. It only runs on Windows NT. The latest release is 1.3.

* "phd" has updated mod_pcgi2 several times this week. mod_pcgi2 moves PGCI's calling code into Apache's process to eliminate the so-called "fork tax". This makes requests more responsive. The latest version is 0.1.2. items

Notable Discussions

* Art Hampton started a discussion presently underway about the relative merits of mod_pcgi2, vanilla PCGI and FastCGI.
