Apache 2.x Internet Content Acceleration module

mod_gzip is an Internet Content Acceleration module for the popular Apache Web Server.

mod_gzip uses the well established and publicly available IETF Content-Encoding standards in conjunction with publicy available GZIP compression libraries such as ZLIB to deliver dynamically compressed content ‘on the fly’ to any browser or user-agent that is capable of receiving it.

This is the updated mod_gzip for apache version 2.0 and above. It has better compression and better logging than the builtin module mod_deflate.
