Apache 2.0 GA Released!
What is a GA release?

Msg#: 452 posted 4:22 pm on Apr 15, 2002 (gmt 0)

I noticed on [httpd.apache.org...] that apache 2.0 is release GA? Does anyone know what GA release means?

Also, it states that one of the new features of 2.0 is:

"Apache modules may now be written as filters which act on the stream of content as it is delivered to or from the server. This allows, for example, the output of CGI scripts to be parsed for Server Side Include directives using the INCLUDES filter in mod_include."

I would LOVE to have an apache server that would parse SSI from CGI scripts. Alas, it sounds like something that does not come stock with Apache but instead a suggestion that a module could be written to do this. If so, does anyone know where I can go to find someone to write me a module that does that?

Welcome to WebmasterWorld nickp! GA stands for General Availability. 2.0.35 is a GA release as opposed to prior beta releases. Your second question is a two parter. I suspect the Version 2 docs will clarify whether Apache can do what you want it to do as delivered. If not our Commercial Exchange [webmasterworld.com] forum may be a good place to start trying to find someone to help you build a module.
