It looks like a few changes won’t make it into trunk/ before I leave for vacation. But you should know what is in the pipeline and what you want to wait for:
- HTTP Response filtering is implemented
- HTTP/1.1 chunking becomes a module
- compression of dynamic content
This will add compression not only for mod_proxy_core and its backends (FastCGI, SCGI, HTTP, AJP13) but also to internally generated content like the directory listings.
With these changes we will become more and more stream based. Or like JDD called it: The Web is a Pipe
