Kind of a random combination, but still. First Apache: some good news: version 2.2 has been released! You can read the Article on The Register and the Official What’s New List. One thing that looks really cool is the DBD Framework – it maintains connection pooling for a number of database servers, and seems to be an abstraction of the database layer. I haven’t read up on it in great detail, but it looks good from what I have read!
