Apache HTTPD 2.2.11

The latest and greatest release of the Apache webserver is now available for download. Thanks to Rüdiger for rolling it.

Version 2.2.11 is a minor update on its predecessor 2.2.10.  There are no new security fixes.  There are some very minor new features that will be of interest to a minority of users.  For developers, the mod_rewrite API is made official: this effectively corrects an oversight in earlier versions.  But mostly, it fixes a moderate number of bugs.

If you’re responsible for an Apache server, and use Apache’s own sources rather than a third-party package, you should at least visit the website and take a look at the change log, so you can make an informed decision whether you need the upgrade.
