The Apache Tomcat team announces the immediate availability of Apache
Tomcat 8.5.16.

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

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
8.5.15 include:

- Add a new JULI FileHandler configuration for specifying the maximum
  number of days to keep the log files. By default the log files will be
  kept indefinitely.

- Improvements to enable the Manager and HostManager to work in the
  default configuration when working under a security manager

- Introduce new API o.a.tomcat.websocket.WsSession#suspend/
  o.a.tomcat.websocket.WsSession#resume that can be used to
  suspend/resume reading of the incoming messages.

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