"Apache 2.0 offers numerous enhancements, improvements and performance boosts over the 1.3 codebase. The most visible and noteworthy addition is the support for the lightweight process model known as threads. This means the beta works well on Windows and improves the scalability of the Apache HTTPD server significantly."

'We've taken the Web Server and added some critical elements that will help it grow in the years to come.
