The Apache Software Foundation and The Apache HTTP Server Project are
pleased to announce the release of mod_python 3.0.1.

Mod_python is an Apache HTTP Server module that embeds the Python
interpreter within the server. With mod_python you can write web-based
applications in Python that will run many times faster than traditional
CGI and will have access to advanced features such as ability to retain
database connections between requests, access to httpd internals and
provide content filter as well as connection handlers.

This is the first release of mod_python as a subproject of the Apache HTTP
Server Project, as well as a major milestone accomplishment finally
bringing compatibility with Apache 2.0.

This release increments the major version to 3. The major version
increment is to denote that this release is only compatible with Apache
httpd server 2.0 and Python 2.2 or later and is not fully backwards
compatible with previous versions of mod_python. For details on migrating
code from previous versions of mod_python, as well as a list of new
featurs, see the README file in the distribution.

Mod_python is available for download from:
