So any of you developers/Beta-testers out there?  How is the new 1.5

Any real benefits yet?

: coming?

Yep.  Very good, still needs small hacks very occationally, but if
you don't need to worry noisy customers, it's a fine choice.

Beta 4 right now.

: Any real benefits yet?

Never tried anything else but NCSA line of servers (from 1.4, 1.4.[12] to
1.5 b2 - b4), the migration has been straightforward.  Right now, with
more than 30 virtual hosts on ours, its performance still impressive :)

In fact, after turning the kernel a little to get longer TCP queue,
the performance seems even better :)

Had a file descriptor related problem a couple days ago, but got it
fixed with a small hack one day later.

We run it on Sun SS running SunOS 4.1.3U1B.

1. Problems with NCSA 'DocFinder' under NCSA HTTPd 1.5

After a successful installation of the NCSA search tool 'Doc Finder' (with
freeWAIS 0.4) under CERN HTTPd 3.0, I tried to run it under NCSA HTTPd 1.5
(both under under Solaris 2.4).
Now there is a problem: Calling 'Doc Finder' with a WWW browser always results
in "SEARCH FOR [...] - No documents found" although running it directly in a
UNIX shell with the same search keywords returns several documents found.

If anybody has an idea where the problem might be, then please send an email

Thanks a lot
