Kudos

I imagine that most of the email you get is because of problems and that
people rarely go to the effort of taking the time to commend great service.

I’m simply writing to tell you that your service has been great since
you’ve completed your updates to the systems. I can only describe it as
responsive, smooth, reliable and a great value.

In particular the addition of spamassassin has been a boon. I am now
manage more than 90% of my spam filtering on eskimo before email even
reaches my home workstation. I don’t believe a single spam has actually
made it to my in box on my home system so far this year.

Thank you for this wonderful service!

Web Server Upgraded Apache HTTPD 2.4.26

     Our web server software has been upgraded to Apache httpd 2.4.26.

     This primarily improves HTTP 2.0, it does some things to further enhance speed, reliability, and security for this new HTTP protocol.  There are minor improvements to other aspects of Apache as well.

Apache HTTP Server 2.4.26 Released

June 19, 2017

The Apache Software Foundation and the Apache HTTP Server Project are pleased to announce the release of version 2.4.26 of the Apache HTTP Server (“Apache”). This version of Apache is our latest GA release of the new generation 2.4.x branch of Apache HTTPD and represents fifteen years of innovation by the project, and is recommended over all previous releases. This release of Apache is a security, feature, and bug fix release.

We consider this release to be the best version of Apache available, and encourage users of all prior versions to upgrade.

Apache HTTP Server 2.4.26 is available for download from:

http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi

Please see the CHANGES_2.4 file, linked from the download page, for a full list of changes. A condensed list, CHANGES_2.4.26 includes only those changes introduced since the prior 2.4 release. A summary of all of the security vulnerabilities addressed in this and earlier releases is available:

http://httpd.apache.org/security/vulnerabilities_24.html

This release requires the Apache Portable Runtime (APR), minimum version 1.5.x, and APR-Util, minimum version 1.5.x. Some features may require the 1.6.x version of both APR and APR-Util. The APR libraries must be upgraded for all features of httpd to operate correctly.

Apache HTTP Server 2.4 provides a number of improvements and enhancements over the 2.2 version. A listing and description of these features is available via:

http://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/new_features_2_4.html

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 require minimal or no source code changes.

http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/httpd/httpd/branches/2.4.x/VERSIONING

When upgrading or installing this version of Apache, please bear in mind that if you intend to use Apache with one of the threaded MPMs (other than the Prefork MPM), you must ensure that any modules you will be using (and the libraries they depend on) are thread-safe.

Please note that Apache Web Server Project will only provide maintenance releases of the 2.2.x flavor through June of 2017, and will provide some security patches beyond this date through at least December of 2017. Minimal maintenance patches of 2.2.x are expected throughout this period, and users are strongly encouraged to promptly complete their transitions to the the 2.4.x flavor of httpd to benefit from a much larger assortment of minor security and bug fixes as well as new features.
