Subject RE: SSL Connectors

I can't speak to your SSL question, but there's no way to predict Tomcat 5.
Tomcat is developed Apache-style...that is, each version is voted on by the
community, and only when the consensus says it is ready for "release" is it
released.  It could be 3 months, it could be 3 years.  There is no timeline,
and there can be no promised release dates.  There can also be no way to
predict how many minor revs will occur before being voted as "release".  For
example, the 4.1 branch has 10 revs in it (4.1.0-4.1.10).  The 5.0 branch
could have 20, 30, 50, or more before being voted stable.

That's not to say that in-progress 5.0 can't be used in production, just
that nobody is going to say it is "production ready" or "released" unless
the community votes on it.

4.1.10 took a year and a half, and was released 4 days ago.

As far as I know, the current release versions of Tomcat 4 are 4.0.4 and
4.1.10.
