mod_gzip, a content acceleration module for Apache, contains a highly optimized and Web server thread-safe version of gzip. It runs perfectly as either an external DSO load module or built right into the core.
Release Notes: This version now has 'in memory' compression turned back on, and it also now has the ability to check for pre-compressed versions of files, and will automatically send them if/when they are available. Static files no longer have to be compressed 'on the fly'. There is also now a new 'item' type called 'uri', which can be used with include/exclude item records in addition to the existing mime, file, handler, reqheader, and rspheader item types.
Release Notes: This release features minor improvements in the include/exclude content directives.
Release Notes: First release.
