>From the Apache web site:
Apache 1.3.41 Released 2008-01-19
The Apache Group is pleased to announce the legacy release of the
1.3.41 version of the Apache HTTP Server.
This version of Apache is principally a security release.
For further details, see the announcement.
So it does look to be actively maintained. But I think Apache2 is now
the recommended version, and Apache1 is only kept around for people
that refuse to upgrade :P
I think Apache2 is stable enough to be production-ready at this point,
at least the 2.0 stream. The active development is happening on Apache
If the community finds Apache1 useful, then perhaps we should continue
to package it. I however cannot volunteer to do so, since I really
wouldn't know where to start :-)
Hope this helps,
