Subject [VOTE] Release Apache Tomcat 8.0.0-RC7
Date Wed, 11 Dec 2013 23:24:27 GMT
The proposed Apache Tomcat 8.0.0 release candidate 7 is now available
for voting.

Given this is a release candidate I am working on the basis that it is
equivalent to an alpha. The main changes since RC5 are:
- Better handling of generic types in the WebSocket 1.0 implementation
- Refactor resource handling for the class loader
- Add Cobertura support to the unit tests
- Remove anti-Jar locking feature and replace it with open stream
- Update to Commons Pool 2.0 release
- Complete refactoring of TLD handling including caching of parsed TLDs
- More consistent handling of XML validation options
- Much more detailed visibility of DBCP connections pools in JMX
- Better organisation of JMX beans in the default JConsole view
- Numerous bug fixes

It can be obtained from:

The proposed 8.0.0-RC7 release is:
[ ] Broken - do not release
[ ] Alpha - go ahead and release as 8.0.0-RC7 alpha
