There is no mention of upgraded support because it's not there -- Apache Jserv
1.1 is still based on the 2.0 servlet API, so it lacks the calls you
referred to above.

Tomcat 3.1 has lots of bug fixes, versus 3.0.  Knowing whether it is "production
ready" or not will depend on people testing it, and then reporting any bugs or
performance issues that they find.
