Subject 8.0.x / 7.0.x progress
Date Tue, 01 Oct 2013 18:39:24 GMT
Pulling together information from multiple threads:

8.0.x trunk appears to be stable (i.e. no longer crashes) but the
FormAuthenticator unit tests are very slow (24 minutes). This needs to
be resolved.

I will port the latest APR changes to 7.0.x shortly.

A build of the latest 1.1.x tomcat-native code is required to achieve
that stability. The implication is that a 1.1.29 release will be
required before the next 7.0.x release.

The issue with the FormAuthenticator needs to be resolved before the
tomcat-native 1.1.29 release in case further native code changes are

The unit tests have identified a rare failure mode in JULI during
context stop:

The fairly frequent (5%-10%) failure rate of TestCoyoteOutputStream
still needs to be addressed.

Apologies for the disruption to the 7.0.x release cycle. The combination
of APR/native and WebSocket was not as stable as it appeared to be.
