Subject [ANN] Apache Tomcat 8.5.23 available
Date Tue, 03 Oct 2017 10:55:31 GMT
The Apache Tomcat team announces the immediate availability of Apache
Tomcat 8.5.23.

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
8.5.20 include:

- Fix CVE-2017-12617

- Add ExtractingRoot, a new WebResourceRoot implementation that extracts
  JARs to the work directory for improved performance when deploying
  packed WAR files.

- Additional capabilities for the CGI Servlet. Based on patches provided
  by jm009.

- Added support for the OpenSSL SSL_CONF API. To support this the
  minimum required Tomcat Native version is 1.2.14.

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