Subject [ANN] End of life for Apache Tomcat 8.0.x
Date Fri, 30 Jun 2017 21:32:09 GMT
The Apache Tomcat team announces that support for Apache Tomcat 8.0.x
will end on 30 June 2018.

This means that after 30 June 2018:
- releases from the 8.0.x branch are highly unlikely
- bugs affecting only the 8.0.x branch will not be addressed
- security vulnerability reports will not be checked against the 8.0.x
  branch

Three months later (i.e. after 30 September 2017)
- the 8.0.x download links will be removed
- the latest 8.0.x release will be removed from the mirror system
- the 8.0.x branch in svn will move from /tomcat/tc8.0.x to
  /tomcat/archive/tc8.0.x
- the links to the 8.0.x documentation will be removed from
  tomcat.apache.org

Note that all 8.0.x releases will always be available from the archive.

It is anticipated that the final 8.0.x release will be made shortly
before 30 June 2016.

The Tomcat team is aware that a number of Linux distributions support
Tomcat 8.0.x and that that support for Tomcat 8.0.x is scheduled to
continue in those distributions beyond June 2018. The Tomcat team will
therefore:
- work with those distributions to address any issues preventing the
  update to 8.5.x from 8.0.x
- where an update to 8.5.x is not possible, the Tomcat team will
  endeavour to provide advice on back-porting security fixes to 8.0.x
