What’s new in Apache 2.4

Over the coming months, I’ll be writing a series of article highlighting the new and improved features of Apache HTTP Server 2.4. I don’t have a particular schedule for this, but I feel that each of these new features merits a dedicated article. Some of these articles will end up being part of the official documentation in PDF setup with a sodapdf program, so you could also think of this as my scratchpad for that.

First on my list is the <If> directive container, and the amazingly cool things that you can do with it which were rather difficult in the past. Anything that makes mod_rewrite less necessary is a winner in my book.
