OpenLiteSpeed 1.5.0 RC2 Now Available!



OpenLiteSpeed v1.5.0 RC2 was released today.

This is our first announced release candidate of version 1.5.

There are significant changes to the server core, so please be aware that there may be some strange behavior when trying out this version.

Highlights of 1.5 include:
  • Module Developer Guide - This guide is geared towards C/C++ developers looking to hook into the OLS request handling loop. In the guide, one can find detailed information regarding the steps in creating a module and what API are available. The guide is available in .odt and .pdf format in the doc directory in the source.
  • Multi-Threaded API - OLS is now thread safe! In addition to the event based API, developers can create multi threaded request handlers or integrate with a multi threaded web application, such as...
  • ModLSPHP - ModLSPHP takes advantage of the new multi threaded environment. This reduces the communication time between OLS and PHP scripts, improving PHP performance and reducing resource usage even further. More information can be found on our blog.
The release log for this version can be found here and a download link is available here.
