AxKit 1.2 released
01:33, 22 Jan 2001 UTC | Michael Smith

Matt Sergeant <> has announced the 1.2 release of his mod_perl-based XML application server, AxKit.

The open-source AxKit is similar in purpose to Apache's Java-based Cocoon -- but appears to be significantly higher-performing than the current Cocoon, though the AxKit site offers no performance data.

In addition to a number of bug fixes, the AxKit 1.2 release provides an improved installer, updated and improved support for the Apache::Filter Perl module, and changes related to support for the XSP system of generating dynamic content through code embedded in XML files.

AxKit can be installed through download from the AxKit site, the Apache modules directory of the CPAN site, or from the CPAN shell with the command:
perl -MCPAN -e 'install AxKit'

AxKit developer discussion takes place on the axkit-devel list, user discussion on axkit-users. To subscribe to either list, visit the mailing list page at the AxKit site.
