Subject [ANNOUNCE] Nightly Builds of Tomcat 4.0-dev (pre-alpha)
Date Tue, 05 Sep 2000 19:07:30 GMT
Effective immediately, adventerous souls can download a nightly build of
the Tomcat 4.0-dev development tree (which is being updated to support
the new Servlet 2.3 and JSP 1.2 draft specifications).  The binary
distributions are available from:

and the source code distributions are at:

These builds correspond to the source code that is in the
"jakarta-tomcat-4.0" module in CVS.  They also include the most recent
versions of the servlet 2.3 and JSP 1.2 API classes (servlet.jar).  Any
web application that is compliant with servlet 2.2 and JSP 1.1 should
run fine under these builds (failure to do so is a bug in Tomcat 4.0
that should be reported), or you can start experimenting with the new
features like as application events and filters.

To keep track of what new features have been implemented so far, check
out the file "NEW_SPECS.txt" in the top level directory.

NOTE:  You should use this code to help us debug Tomcat 4.0, and/or
to start learning about the new servlet 2.3 and JSP 1.2 spec features
that are being added.  It is not yet appropriate to use this code
for production purposes.  The goal is to have a beta-quality version
of this code (with complete support for all the 2.3/1.2 features, as
of the current drafts of the spec at that time) by ApacheCon London,
October 23-25, 2000.
