Subject [ANN] Apache Tomcat 8.0.9 (stable) available
Date Thu, 26 Jun 2014 07:00:53 GMT
The Apache Tomcat team announces the immediate availability of Apache
Tomcat 8.0.9, the first stable release of the 8.0.x series.

Apache Tomcat 8 is an open source software implementation of the Java
Servlet, JavaServer Pages, Java Unified Expression Language and Java
WebSocket technologies.

Apache Tomcat 8 is aligned with Java EE 7. In addition to supporting
updated versions of the Java EE specifications, Tomcat 8 includes a
number of improvements compared to Tomcat 7. The notable changes
include:

- Support for Java Servlet 3.1, JavaServer Pages 2.3, Java Unified
  Expression Language 3.0 and Java WebSocket 1.0.

- The default connector implementation is now the Java non-blocking
  implementation (NIO) for both HTTP and AJP.

- A new resources implementation that replaces Aliases, VirtualLoader,
  VirtualDirContext, JAR resources and external repositories with a
  single, consistent approach for configuring additional web
  application resources. The new resources implementation can also be
  used to implement overlays (using a master WAR as the basis for
  multiple web applications that each have their own
  customizations).


Apache Tomcat 8.0.9 includes numerous fixes for issues identified
in 8.0.8 as well as a number of other enhancements and changes. The
notable changes since 8.0.8 include:

- Start to move towards RFC6265 for cookie handling

- Better error handling when the error occurs after the response has
  been committed

- Various Jasper improvements to make it easier for other containers
  (e.g. Jetty) to consume


Please refer to the change log for the complete list of changes:

Note: This version has 4 zip binaries: a generic one and three
      bundled with Tomcat native binaries for Windows operating systems
      running on different CPU architectures.
