Subject [ANN] End of life for Apache Tomcat 5.5.x
Date Wed, 10 Aug 2011 12:00:42 GMT
The Apache Tomcat team announces that support for Apache Tomcat 5.5.x
will end on 30 September 2012.

This means that after 30 September 2012:
- releases from the 5.5.x branch are highly unlikely
- bugs affecting only the 5.5.x branch will not be addressed
- security vulnerability reports will not be checked against the 5.5.x
branch

Three months later (i.e. after 31 December 2012)
- the 5.5.x download pages will be removed
- the latest 5.5.x release will be removed from the mirror system
- the 5.5.x branch in svn will move from /tomcat/tc5.5.x to
/tomcat/archive/tc5.5.x
- the links to the 5.5.x documentation will be removed from
tomcat.apache.org
- The bugzilla project for 5.5.x will be made read-only

Note that all 5.5.x releases will always be available from the archive.

It is anticipated that the final 5.5.x release will be made shortly
before 30 September 2012.
