Subject Tomcat 8.5 download page - separate from 8.0 one
Date Thu, 14 Apr 2016 12:30:53 GMT
Hi!

Currently Tomcat 8.5 is downloaded from the same page as Tomcat 8.0

http://tomcat.apache.org/download-80.cgi

Note the "80" in the URL.


The documentation for 8.5 has a different URL in its configuration

In webapps\docs\tomcat-docs.xsl

  <xsl:param    name="dllink"
select="'http://tomcat.apache.org/download-85.cgi'"/>


For Tomcat 5 we used the same "5.5" page for both 5.5 and 5.0
downloads (web archive: [1]). Historically, there never was a "50.cgi"
page at tomcat.apache.org. It was "55.cgi" since the date when Tomcat
became a top-level project. [2]


Personally, I am OK with using the same page. A difference is that I
would move the recent version to the top of the page.


By the way, the "Which version?" page needs an update as well. Tomcat
8.5 is not listed there. [3]
