Subject [ANNOUNCEMENT] Struts 2.0.14 End of Life Announcement
Date Mon, 19 Dec 2011 09:01:43 GMT
The Apache Struts Team likes to inform you that the Struts 2.0 branch has
reached it's end of life and is no longer supported. All users of Struts
2.0.14 or earlier Struts 2 versions are strongly advised to update their
existing applications to Struts 2.3.x.

Struts 2.0.14 was for some time maintained in parallel to the 2.1 and 2.2
branches, since Struts 2.1 introduced some API and plugin changes that were
likely to break existing user code on top of Struts 2. However, the
community interest in maintaining the Struts 2.0.x branch was not strong
enough to keep it sufficiently up to date, especially in terms of security
fixes. There are several serious security problems that, while being
continuously addressed in later Struts 2 versions, did not make it into the
2.0.x branch. For that reason the Apache Struts PMC decided to remove
2.0.14 as a supported version.

For more information on how to upgrade existing applications running on top
of Struts 2.0.x to Struts 2.1 and later, please read the Guide to Migrating
from Struts 2.0.x to 2.1.x [1].
