lighttpd 2 vs lighttpd 1.4

Added by mchalain 9 months ago

Hello happy tax payers,

My name is Marc. I have to study the implementation of a new feature on lighttpd, and I have the choice to develop on v2 or on v1.4 (but not on the both :-)

What is the roadmap of the v2 ?

I search to know if it is usefull to implement on v2 ? In fact I saw that v2 is 8 years old and it doesn't move a lot for 2 years.

Thank you a lot,
Marc.

Your contribution will likely get more use being part of lighttpd 1.4.x. I recommend you join us on IRC freenode #lighttpd and discuss what you're trying to do prior to spending a significant amount of time implementing it.

FYI: while lighttpd.net runs lighttpd2, lighttpd2 has never been officially released.

https://w3techs.com/technologies/details/ws-lighttpd/all/all reports that 1.7% of public lighttpd2 installations vs 98.3% public lighttpd 1.4.x installations.

FYI: unstable, experimental code which adds connection-level hooks and isolates SSL code into mod_openssl.c is available in my dev branch (to which I can and do force push) at https://git.lighttpd.net/lighttpd/lighttpd1.4.git branch personal/gstrauss/master (See DevelGit)
