                      Release Plan for Apache Tomcat 4.1


This document is a release plan for the *final* release of Apache Tomcat

The goal of the Apache Tomcat 4.1 final release is to provide a stable
container that supports 100% of the mandatory requirements of the Servlet
and JSP 1.2 specifications, as well as to improve and add many useful
additional features on top of the existing Apache Tomcat 4.0 releases.

Apache Tomcat 4.1 includes the following major new features over
Apache Tomcat 4.0:

* JMX based administration features
* JSP and Struts based administration web application
* New Coyote HTTP/1.1 connector
* New Coyote JK2 AJP 1.4 connector
* Rewritten Jasper JSP page compiler
* Performance and memory efficiency improvements
* Enhanced manager application support for integration with development
* Custom Ant tasks to interact with the manager application directly
  from build.xml scripts.
* Many other miscanellous improvements

This Release Plan proposes the following schedule:

  Friday, April 26, 2002          Apache Tomcat 4.1 Beta 1

  Friday, May 10, 2002            Apache Tomcat 4.1 Beta 2

  Friday, May 17, 2002            Apache Tomcat 4.1 Release Candidate

In order to complete final release, all outstanding Bugzilla bug reports
against Tomcat 4.1 above NORMAL severity need to be fixed or deferred for
later releases.  After the first 4.1 Release Candidate, other RC releases
be made as needed until one is promoted as Final by the Tomcat committers.

This Release Plan proposes the following classification of current
bug reports in the bug tracking system, sorted by component and their ID
numbers in our bug tracking system at:

Please review the bug reports, and their classification as "must have",
"nice to have", or "address later".  Lobbying for changes in classification
can take place on the TOMCAT-DEV mailing list.  In addition, if you have a
bug report or enhancement that you wish to have considered prior to final
release, please submit a bug report as quickly as possible.
