Subject [ANN] Apache Tomcat 8.5.15 available
Date Tue, 16 May 2017 08:06:16 GMT
The Apache Tomcat team announces the immediate availability of Apache
Tomcat 8.5.15.

Tomcat 8.x users should normally be using 8.5.x releases in preference
to 8.0.x releases.

Apache Tomcat 8 is an open source software implementation of the Java
Servlet, JavaServer Pages, Java Unified Expression Language, Java
WebSocket and Java Authentication Service Provider Interface for
Containers technologies.

Apache Tomcat 8.5.x is intended to replace 8.0.x and includes new
features pulled forward from the 9.0.x branch. The notable changes since
8.5.14 include:

- Various improvements to the handling of static custom error pages

- Update to Eclipse JDT Compiler 4.6.3

- Review those places where Tomcat re-encodes a URI or URI component
  and ensure that the correct encoding is consistently applied.

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