Thanks for the announcement.

Is there any rough timeline or roadmap for a stable and/or release version of Tomcat 10? (Sorry if this has been discussed here already.)

I'm in no rush. I just have an application with embedded Tomcat which is due for another release soon, and I wondered whether it was time to start looking into switching yet. Is Tomcat 10 pretty solid and the API stable for simple embedded serving?

Apache Tomcat 10 is an open source software implementation of the
Jakarta Servlet, Jakarta Server Pages, Jakarta Expression Language,
Jakarta WebSocket, Jakarta Authentication and Jakarta Annotations

Users of Tomcat 10 onwards should be aware that, as a result of the move
from Java EE to Jakarta EE as part of the transfer of Java EE to the
Eclipse Foundation, the primary package for all implemented APIs has
changed from javax.* to jakarta.*. This will almost certainly require
code changes to enable applications to migrate from Tomcat 9 and earlier
to Tomcat 10 and later. A migration tool is under development to aid
this process.

Apache Tomcat 10.0.0-M5 is a milestone release of the 10.0.x
branch and has been made to provide users with early access to the new
features in Apache Tomcat 10.0.x so that they may provide feedback. The
notable changes compared to 10.0.0-M4 include:

- Remove useAprConnector flag from AprLifecycleListener so that the
   only way to use the APR connectors is to set the full class name.

- Change default value separator for property replacement to ":-"
   due to possible conflicts. The syntax is now "${name:-default}".

- Update the packaged version of the Tomcat Native Library to 1.2.24.

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