Last week the Apache Software Foundation and Apache HTTP Server Project released mod_python 3.0.1.
Mod_python is an Apache HTTP Server module that embeds the Python interpreter within the server. With mod_python, users can write Web-based applications in Python that run faster than traditional CGI and can retain database connections between requests, access httpd internals, and provide content filter and connection handlers.
This release increments the major version to 3.0. The major version increment was used to denote that the release is compatible only with Apache http server 2.0 and Python 2.2 or later. It is also not backward compatible with previous versions of mod_python.
This is the first release of mod_python that was a subproject of the Apache HTTP Server Project, and it will bring compatibility with Apache 2.0. Mod_python is available for download from http://www.apache.org/dist/httpd/modpython/.
