At long last, Tomcat 3.3 has reached "Final Release" and is available for
download.  With its refactored set of core classes and modules, it offers a
number of new features, better performance, and more flexible configuration
over its predecessors.  Also, it can be updated with add-on modules. The
PasswordPrompter add-on module is a simple example and is available with
this release. You can download the release from: 

Note: As of this moment, RPMs and netware connectors have not been added to
the web site. They will appear in the near future.

As a Tomcat 3.x release, it remains a reference implementation of the
Servlet 2.2 and JSP 1.1 specifications.  Note however that altering Tomcat's
behavior with respect to the Servlet 2.2 and JSP 1.1 specifications
invalidates its status as a reference implementation.

Since the configuration improvements often involve differences from earlier
Tomcat 3.2.x releases, you are strongly encouraged to review the "readme"
file in Tomcat's doc directory.  Especially section 5. "NEW FEATURES AND
CHANGES IN THIS RELEASE" where some of the important differences are listed.

A lot of new content has been added to the tomcat-ug.html.  In addition,
serverxml.html has been added to the site to provide reference information
about the modules.  If you upgrade to Tomcat 3.3, these documents are the
first place to look for information about how to use Tomcat 3.3.

To log problems or bugs, as well as submit patches, please refer to: 

When logging bugs to Bugzilla, please specify the Product as "Tomcat 3" 
and the Version as "3.3 Final". Also, supplying a test case will greatly
improve our ability to address the problem.  Please do so if at all possible.

P.S. I would like to thank the countless people who have contributed to the
Tomcat 3.3 development.  A special thanks goes to Costin Manolache who did
the majority of the refactoring and is responsible in large part for many
of the improvements you will find in Tomcat 3.3.
