Subject [ANN] Struts 2.2.1 GA release available
Date Mon, 16 Aug 2010 18:10:08 GMT
The Apache Struts group is pleased to announce that Struts 2.2.1 is
available as a "General Availability" release. The GA designation is our
highest quality grade.

Apache Struts 2 is an elegant, extensible framework for creating
enterprise-ready Java web applications. The framework is designed to
streamline the full development cycle, from building, to deploying, to
maintaining applications over time.

This release includes a number of new features and bug fixes since the GA release, including important security fixes regarding remote
server context manipulation by injecting OGNL expressions in request
parameters. For more information about the exploits and possible
mitigation workarounds, see the corresponding security bulletins S2-005:

All developers are strongly advised to update existing Struts 2
applications to Struts 2.2.1.

Struts 2.2.1 is available in a full distribution, or as separate
library, source, example and documentation distributions, from the
releases page:


The release is also available through the central Maven repository under
Group ID "org.apache.struts". The release notes are available online:


The 2.2.x series of the Apache Struts framework has a minimum
requirement of the following specification versions: Servlet API 2.4,
JSP API 2.0, and Java 5.

Should any issues arise with your use of any version of the Struts
framework, please post your comments to the user list, and, if
appropriate, file a tracking ticket:
