Subject [ANN] Apache Tomcat 8.0.21 available
Date Fri, 27 Mar 2015 23:30:39 GMT
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.

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