  +<h3>14 January 2002 - Apache Tomcat 3.3 Updated to 3.3a</h3>
  +
  +<p><b>Important Notice:</b> The Tomcat 3.3 release has been updated to
  +3.3a to deal with a DOS vulnerability on Windows systems. The
  +vulnerability allows a special HTTP request to hang and never complete.
  +This prevents the thread handling the request from handling any further requests
  +until Tomcat is restarted. Other systems are not affected, and both
  +Tomcat 3.2.x and Tomcat 4.x do not  have this vunerability.</p>
  +
  +<p>It is recommended that everyone using Tomcat 3.3 on a Windows system
  +upgrade to 3.3a. This is possible using the full Tomcat 3.3a binary
  +distribution, or by updating jar(s) in an existing Tomcat 3.3 installation.
  +These may be found 
  +<a href="http://www.apache.org/dist/jakarta/jakarta-tomcat/release/v3.3/bin">here</a>
  +along with additional information.</p>

   <h3>20 November 2001 - Apache Tomcat 3.2.4 Released</h3>
   
   <p>Tomcat 3.2.4 is now available for download
