  +    <p>
  +      This document attempts to convey the current status of Tomcat development
  +      in "big picture" terms.  This is not the place to check if an individual
  +      bug report has been addressed or when an individual feature will be available.
  +    </p>
  +    <p>
  +      This page is updated roughly once per every couple of Tomcat minor releases,
  +      so for day-to-day status you should check the tomcat-user and tomcat-dev mailing
  +      lists.  You can always inquire there as to the availability or status of a
  +      specific feature or component.
  +    </p>

  +  <section name="Current Status Summary">
  +    <p>
  +      <b>Tomcat 5.0.27</b> was released on June 17th, 2004.  At that time,
the TOMCAT_5_0
  +      branch was tagged in CVS, and work on Tomcat 5.1 (or 5.5, or 5.next, we haven't
  +      decided yet) began.  Until the first stable release of Tomcat 5.1, building from
  +      CVS head may be unstable or broken: use the TOMCAT_5_0 branch tag to build
  +      the Tomcat 5.0 releases.
  +    </p>
  +    <p>
  +      <b>Tomcat 5.1</b> has several major goals.  They are discussed in the
tomcat-dev
  +      mailing list's "5.next" thread: 
  +      <a href="http://marc.theaimsgroup.com/?l=tomcat-dev&amp;w=2&amp;r=1&amp;s=5.next&amp;q=b">MARC</a>.
  +      The status of some of these items is detailed below.
  +    </p>
  +    <p>
  +      <b>Tomcat 4.0.x</b> is relatively old, and not actively maintained or
supported.
  +      It is strongly recommended that users of these releases upgrade to the latest
  +      stable Tomcat 5.0 release or at least the latest stable Tomcat 4.1 release.
  +    </p>
  +    <p>
  +      <b>Tomcat 4.1.x</b> is no longer actively developed.  It is maintained
to address
  +      only showstopper, security, and Servlet Specification compliance issues.  Maintenance
  +      for Tomcat 4.1.x will likely cease once a stable release or two of Tomcat 5.1 are
out.
  +      Users of Tomcat 4.1.x are strongly encouraged to upgrade to the latest stable Tomcat
  +      5.0 release.
  +    </p>
  +    <p>
  +      <b>Tomcat 3.3.x</b> is in roughly the same maintenance mode as Tomcat
4.1.x.
  +    </p>
  +    <p>
  +      <b>Tomcat 3.2</b> and earlier are in roughly the same support state as
Tomcat 4.0.x.
  +      Users should upgrade to Tomcat 3.3.x or the latest stable Tomcat 5.0.x.
  +    </p>
