The Apache Tomcat team announces the immediate availability of Apache
Apache Tomcat is an open source software implementation of the Java
Servlet, JavaServer Pages, Java Expression Language and Java
This release contains a number of bug fixes and improvements compared to
version 7.0.59. The notable changes since 7.0.59 include:
- 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.
- Update the Eclipse JDT compiler to version 4.4.2.
Please refer to the change log for the complete list of changes:
Note: This version has 4 zip binaries: a generic one and
three bundled with Tomcat native binaries for Windows operating
systems running on different CPU architectures.
Note: Use of the Java WebSocket 1.1 implementation requires Java 7.
Note: If you use the APR/native AJP or HTTP connector you *must* upgrade
to version 1.1.33 or later of the APR/native library.
