New version of LICQ - 1.2.0a

Email: 

LICQ does not stand for Linux ICQ. Never has and never will. LICQ is an ICQ for all (or most) *NIXes. Also Graham is no longer actively involved in the LICQ project.

Apache 2.0 Beats IIS at Its Own Game

After three years of development, Apache 2.0 (or, more accurately, Version 2.035) has finally been released. Unix users will find plenty to like in Version 2.0, but the biggest impact will be on Windows servers, where Apache can now perform as a production-level Web server.
