Version 5.0.0

Version 5.0.0 of mod_wsgi can be obtained from:

Note that the major version 5.0 was introduced not because of any new major features but because from version 5.0 onwards compatability with Python 2.7 is no longer guaranteed. A minimum Python version of 3.8 will be enforced by the Python package installation configuration.

Features Changed

  • The setuptools package is now required to be installed in order to use the pip install method to install mod_wsgi. This is because distutils has been removed in Python 3.12.

Bugs Fixed

  • Fix ability to build mod_wsgi against Apache 2.2. Do note that in general only recent versions of Apache 2.4 are supported
