Subject [ANN] Apache Tomcat 8.5.31 available
Date Fri, 04 May 2018 19:09:44 GMT
The Apache Tomcat team announces the immediate availability of Apache
Tomcat 8.5.31.

Tomcat 8.x users should be using 8.5.x releases in preference to 8.0.x

Apache Tomcat 8 is an open source software implementation of the Java
Servlet, JavaServer Pages, Java Unified Expression Language, Java
WebSocket and Java Authentication Service Provider Interface for
Containers technologies.

Apache Tomcat 8.5.x is intended to replace 8.0.x and includes new
features pulled forward from the 9.0.x branch. The notable changes since
8.5.29 include:

- Implement configuration options to work-around specification
  non-compliant user agents (including all the major browsers) that do
  not correctly %nn encode URI paths and query strings as required by
  RFC 7230 and RFC 3986

- Enable the CrawlerSessionManagerValve to correctly handle bots that
  crawl multiple hosts and/or web applications when the Valve is
  configured on a Host or an Engine.

- Add support for annotation scanning of classes built with Java 11 EA

Please refer to the change log for the complete list of changes:
