ASF does not use that terms.

The *complete* build is tagged for voting by the ASF PMC members.

The changes to the code are already voted in an earlier stage and are agreed.

Once tagged there is a very little change that someting is changing.

!! We cannot vote, but when you as member find an issues we can advise !!

This is important, nowadays the Win32 community is more avtive around the dev guys ( Jorge and I are participating )

Regardless of how they term their releases, I was curious whether or not it is still in the development cycle. Good to hear you and Jorge are involved.

I installed and have it running with the most common modules and PHP, Perl, SSL, Mod Security, and Mod Macro.

At this point no exceptions or errors have been generated. I'll start some rigorous testing in the next couple of days.

I read the eMails from Jorge and Steffen in dev list. Can't post myself (have no clue about c++). Marveless guys!
Can you force the httpd.apache.org guys also to use a newer compiler? Through the better preformance it would help to make apache more popular under windows. Mr. Green

I think, if ASF would set a new standart 3rd party modules would be also compiled in a newer compiler. It is like the PHP dev group, changes take so long, because no one want to have a controversy / trouble. Ok, all developer to that in their spare time, but some one need to leed! So I wait for Apache 3.0!

Your apache 2.2.3 seems to work fine...thanks.

One question: how does this now differ from the versions we can now download on the regular apache site? (There, they now have files called httpd-2.2.3-win32-src.zip and apache_2.2.3-win32-x86-no_ssl.msi.)

httpd-2.2.3-win32-src.zip are only the source file, not compiled

The binary download differs in two things: a) apachelounge download support SSL the one from apache.org (ASF) does not include SSL
b) ÁSF uses msi packages. You don't realy know what in the installer do, and what it maybe write into the registry. Download from here is only packed as zip file. You have the full controll what is into it. Also caused by this zip file makes it easier to update a version, because you can only replace the binary files and don't have to uninstall the old one and than install the new one.
