Tomcat still supports the older protocols. The browser determines the
version. Browsers have moved to 1.1 for decades, and were using
extensions to 1.0 that became standard in 1.1 for years before that. So
don't worry about the HTTP version.

The only case I know that may cause problems for 1.0 clients is when you
use virtual hosting. The "host" header is mandatory in 1.1, but was
optional in 1.0. Without the host header, the server must make a guess
as to what virtual host was intended, or you have to implement another
means of directing users to the correct application.
