Subject [ANN] Apache Tomcat 8.5.45 available
Date Thu, 22 Aug 2019 07:31:44 GMT
The Apache Tomcat team announces the immediate availability of Apache
Tomcat 8.5.45.

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 replaces 8.0.x and includes new features pulled
forward from the 9.0.x branch. The notable changes since 8.5.43 include:

- Expand the HTTP/2 excessive overhead protection to cover various forms
  of abusive client behaviour and close the connection if any such
  behaviour is detected.

- Security improvements to the Windows installer including a change in
  the default user from Local System to Local Service.

- Improve handling of invalid requests so that 400 responses are
  returned to the client rather than 500 responses.

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