The Apache HTTPD version 2.2.0-1 packages, previously released with
testing status, are now promoted to the current distribution.

======================== IMPORTANT UPDATE NOTE ========================
Existing version 2.0 config files are MOSTLY compatible with 2.2, but
WILL require at least one change: Several modules have changed name, so
the LoadModule statements will need updating. The easiest way to do this
is to replace the existing LoadModule statements with the ones in

Apache 2.2 has a significantly redesigned default configuration: it has
been greatly simplified by removing all but the most essential
configuration settings. A set of example configuration settings for more
advanced features is present in the /etc/apache2/extra/ directory.
Furthermore, the naming scheme of the pristine default configuration
files has changed: Instead of /etc/apache2/httpd-std.conf, there is now
/etc/apache2/original/httpd.conf, and similarly for other files.

Additionally, in Cygwin-local news:

* mod_proxy and its sub-modules are now included in the build,
  by user request.

* mod_ssl is now included in the build. I haven't received any user
  requests for this one, but I figure it's popular enough that someone
  will definitely want it eventually.

Please address requests for the inclusion of any additional modules
contained within the Apache httpd distribution itself to cygwin (at)
cygwin (dot) com.
