Apache 2.1.7 beta released

A new beta version of the Apache web server has been released. This release is important because it is a beta version in the 2.1.x development branch, meaning Apache is one step closer to an official 2.2 version. The most important changes are the refactoring of the authentication/authorisation backend, faster and better caching support, and the much improved mod_proxy with support for load balancing.
