Subject [VOTE] Release Apache Tomcat 8.0.0-RC9
Date Wed, 18 Dec 2013 00:59:39 GMT
The proposed Apache Tomcat 8.0.0 release candidate 9 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
  tracking
- Update to a post Commons Pool 2.0 release snapshot
- 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
- Performance improvements
- Numerous bug fixes

It can be obtained from:
https://dist.apache.org/repos/dist/dev/tomcat/tomcat-8/v8.0.0-RC9/
The Maven staging repo is:
https://repository.apache.org/content/repositories/orgapachetomcat-063/
The svn tag is:
http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/tomcat/tags/TOMCAT_8_0_0_RC9/

The proposed 8.0.0-RC9 release is:
[ ] Broken - do not release
[ ] Alpha - go ahead and release as 8.0.0-RC9 alpha

Cheers,

Mark
