Has a decision (even tentative) been made on when 7.0.43 GA (w/ jsr

will release?  Just curious if this will be before the end of September.

The native release this was blocked by has now happened. Running the
unit tests has identified a series of problems with WebSocket and the
APR/native connector on Windows. I think these are fixed but I need to
wait for the unit test runs to complete. Literally as I typed the last
sentence the Windows tests finished and they passed. Woot!

I'll be tagging 8.0.0-RC2 in the next few hours. I expect Violeta will
be tagging
7.0.43 either later today or early tomorrow.

Awesome - thx for the update!

Is it still looking good for a 7.0.43 release this week?   I noticed nothing has been tagged
yet, so didn't know if there were some problems uncovered that need to be fixed.

7.0.43 was tagged about 6 hours before you sent this message :-):

http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/tomcat/tc7.0.x/tags/TOMCAT_7_0_43/

There is also currently a vote happening on the developer mailing list as to its stability
and whether to release:

http://tomcat.markmail.org/thread/yjx2p5n62k2mdcrt

The Tomcat team encourages people willing to test proposed Tomcat releases before they are
published to join the developer mailing list, download the proposed release, test it out,
and report back any issues that they believe should block the release, if any, in the form
of a non-binding vote on the release.

Hope this helps,

Nick

That's great.   I had checked right before emailing, but turns out my browser cached the tags
URL and 43 didn't show up.

I will definitely pull down/build it and let you know if we have any problems.
