Subject [ANN] Apache Tomcat 8.5.56 available
Date Mon, 08 Jun 2020 20:56:21 GMT
The Apache Tomcat team announces the immediate availability of Apache
Tomcat 8.5.56.

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 8.5.55 include:

- Add support for ALPN on recent OpenJDK 8 releases.

- Add support for the CATALINA_OUT_CMD environment variable that defines
  a command to which captured stdout and stderr will be redirected. For
  use with, for example, rotatelogs. Patch provided by Harald Dunkel.

- Be more flexible with respect to the ordering of groups, roles and
  users in the tomcat-users.xml file
