I don’t have time to read most of the Apache mailing lists, but I do keep an eye on the low-traffic cvs commit list.
There’s been a lot of discussion over the past month or so about the upcoming 1.3.28 release, and even a couple of dates proposed. The most recent message suggests that we’ll see a 1.3.28 release next week.
Taking a look at the CHANGES file, there’s not too much that I really need in this release. The past year has been pretty slow for Apache 1.3 development, in large part because folks are starting to move to 2.0.
