Some interesting news and articles

Here is a couple of news/articles/announcements that I have found interesting recently:

The Case for the /usr Merge is definitely an interesting read. You can also have this functionality by upgrading to Fedora 17.

Overview of new features in Apache HTTP Server 2.4 is obviously a must read. Besides the performance gains, I also find the KeepAliveTimeout upgrade - the ability to set this configuration option in microseconds - significant. This functionality can shave off those milliseconds spent for setting up a connection on AJAX heavy pages while not degrading overall server performance.

PHP 5.4 is out if you haven't heard. Traits and a built-in web server for development purposes. Nice!

I hate dealing with HTML so anything that helps me with this headache deserves some respect. Check out the Page Inspector 3D View (nicknamed Tilt).
