2.0 came out in March of 2001 (released at ApacheCon 2001) 2 is what you call a major release version, 2.2 was nearly a major release and had lots of fixes and new features. 2.4 is supposed to have quite a few new features. You just have to get used to open source projects, their version numbers don't grow as fast as proprietary (read: commercial) software.

Is version 2 the latest?
Can anyone tell me if they stopped developing apache? Seems version 2 is around for a couple of years already.

Mod Rewrite Rules!
Apache is great. I don't think I could live without mod rewrite. I get so much use out of it and will never switch to IIS

You should check out http://www.wampserver.com/en/, their install comes with mod-rewrite!

mod_rewrite
@ manuel: yes, you can use it in windows. It works also in a package like xampp for example.

Don't you think, that there should be some competition. When one is an absolut leader, this may stop development of the project. So, we even should support those, who want to make something better! :-)

That's a good call, didn't mess around with IIS too much but there is definitely a reason for that~

Nice Features
Agree with comments below...

If you think of the many helpful features of Apache that are available by default (i.e. mod-rewrite) it's just a great project. To realise similar things within other software can be ver complicated.
