cPanel changelog is at: http://changelog.cpanel.net/ - this should help fill you in with whats being rolled out within the Edge distribution and others. If you are running production servers I wouldn't suggest running Edge however, I personally like running servers on Release and rarely have issues.

apache 2 support is in "alpha" mode currently according to layer 1: http://layer1.cpanel.net/buildapache...RS_ONLY.tar.gz (Mon Aug 18 19:47:12 2003)

so in other words its not available ;-)

1 year. Give or take 12 months.

Yeah Apache 2 is kind of a sore subject on the cPanel forums, needless to say. If you need Apache 2 the best thing to do would be to look at a different controlpanel for now. Good luck!

Apache 2 support is being very actively worked on. cPanel will be releasing a new easyapache within 2-3 weeks which will "support" the installation of apache2 although not provide it immediately. A few more quirks are being worked out with the conversion from Apache 1.3 -> 2.0, but I definitely expect to see it available within the next 90 days.

Why is there such a problem with them using Apache 2 while Plesk has supported it for over a year now.

It's not a problem, we have simply chosen to make sure Apache2 is ready as cPanel controls a very large percentage of the webservers on the internet, we are very cautious when it comes to such a drastic change.

There were many other factors involved in the migration from Apache 1.3 to 2.x, however, I can assure everything, it's very close.

Unless you have specific need for PHP5 functions, I would not recommend the upgrade. However, we do have many users using PHP5 in EDGE and there are not currently any known issues.

I am currently using WHM/Cpanel as well. I also would like to run Apache 2.2.0, but am told that there is no support for it. This is somewhat annoying.

I purchased WHM for one simple reason: So I would not have to waste time in SSH updating my server software. I could simply click a few buttons in WHM and update Apache from there. Now, back when I was on a 32 bit Xeon server running Apache 1.3.34, the entire WHM would often crash when compiling Apache. Now that I am on a 64 bit server, I am told that I cannot compile *anything* using WHM. In fact, if I try it will compile 32 bit versions over the top of my 64 bit version. This pretty much defeats my whole reason for having the WHM/CPanel setup. I think it is time to look at Plesk.

Now, CPanel is worried that Apache 2.x.x might be unstable or in need of "more testing"? How can you make this claim when you have not even managed to get CPanel to work properly with 1.3.34? The problem is not Apache, it is your software. I ran Plesk on a different server that I had 8 months ago and I ran it with Apache 2. Not a single issue with it...
