Subject [ANN] Apache Tomcat 8.5.2 BETA available
Date Tue, 17 May 2016 10:33:25 GMT
The Apache Tomcat team announces the immediate availability of Apache
Tomcat 8.5.2 BETA.

Apache Tomcat 8.0 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
8.5.0 include:

- Add the org.apache.catalina.servlet4preview package that can be
  used to gain early access to Servlet 4.0 features. Note that this
  package will not be present in Tomcat 9.

- Make default TLS configuration more secure

- Add direct HTTP/2 connection support

- Update the packaged version of the Tomcat Native Library to 1.2.7 to
  pick up the Windows binaries that are based on OpenSSL 1.0.2h and
  APR 1.5.2.

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