The Apache Tomcat team announces the immediate availability of Apache Tomcat 8.0.21.
Apache Tomcat 8 is an open source software implementation of the Java Servlet, JavaServer Pages, Java Unified Expression Language and Java WebSocket technologies. Apache Tomcat 8.0.21 includes numerous fixes for issues identified in 8.0.20 as well as a number of other enhancements and changes. The notable changes since 8.0.20 include: - Enable Tomcat to detect when a WAR file has been changed while Tomcat is not running. - Add support for Java 8 JSSE server-preferred TLS cipher suite ordering. This feature requires Java 8. - Update to Tomcat Native Library version 1.1.33 to pick up the Windows binaries that are based on OpenSSL 1.0.1m and APR 1.5.1 - Implement a new feature for AJP connectors - Tomcat Authorization. If enabled Tomcat will take an authenticated user name from the AJP protocol and use the appropriate Realm for the request to authorize (i.e. add roles) to that user.
