Coyote

  • Fix: Correct the HPACK header table size configuration that transposed the client and server table sizes when creating the encoder and decoder. (markt)
  • Fix: Don't continue to process an HTTP/2 stream if it is reset during header parsing. (markt)
  • Fix: HTTP/2 uses separate headers for each Cookie. As required by RFC 7540, merge these into a single Cookie header before processing continues. (markt)
  • Fix: Align the HTTP/2 implementation with the HTTP/1.1 implementation and return a 500 response when an unhandled exception occurs during request processing. (markt)
  • Fix: Correct the HTTP header parser so that DEL is not treated as a valid token character. (markt)
  • Add: Add checks around the handling of HTTP/2 pseudo headers. (markt)
  • Add: Add support for trailer headers to the HTTP/2 implementation. (markt)
  • Fix: 60232: When processing headers for an HTTP/2 stream, ensure that the read buffer is large enough for the header being processed. (markt)
  • Add: Add configuration options to the HTTP/2 implementation to control the maximum number of headers allowed, the maximum size of headers allowed, the maximum number of trailer headers allowed, the maximum size of trailer headers allowed and the maximum number of cookies allowed. (markt)
  • Fix: Correctly differentiate between sending and receiving a reset frame when tracking the state of an HTTP/2 stream. (markt)
  • Fix: 60319: When using an Executor, disconnect it from the Connector attributes maxThreads, minSpareThreads and threadPriority to enable the configuration settings to be consistently reported. These Connector attributes will be reported as -1 when an Executor is in use. The values used by the executor may be set and obtained via the Executor. (markt)
  • Fix: If an I/O error occurs during async processing on a non-container thread, ensure that the onError() event is triggered. (markt)
  • Fix: Improve detection of I/O errors during async processing on non-container threads and trigger async error handling when they are detected. (markt)
  • Add: Add additional checks for valid characters to the HTTP request line parsing so invalid request lines are rejected sooner. (markt)

Jasper

2016-10-10 Tomcat 8.5.6

Catalina

  • Add: 59961: Add an option to the StandardJarScanner to control whether or not JAR Manifests are scanned for additional class path entries. (markt)
  • Fix: 60013: Refactor the previous fix to align the behaviour of the Rewrite Valve with mod_rewrite. As part of this, provide an implementation for the B and NE flags and improve the handling for the QSA flag. Includes multiple test cases by Santhana Preethiand a patch by Tiago Oliveira. (markt)
  • Fix: 60087: Refactor the web resources handling to use the Tomcat specific war:file:... URL protocol to refer to WAR files and their contents rather than the standard jar:file:... form since some components of the JRE, such as JAR verification, give unexpected results when the standard form is used. A side-effect of the refactoring is that when using packed WARs, it is now possible to reference a WAR and/or specific JARs within a WAR in the security policy file used when running under a SecurityManager. (markt)
  • Fix: 60116: Fix a problem with the rewrite valve that caused back references evaluated in conditions to be forced to lower case when using the NC flag. (markt)
  • Fix: Ensure Digester.useContextClassLoader is considered in case the class loader is used. (violetagg)
  • Fix: 60117: Ensure that the name of LogLevel is localized when using OneLineFormatter. Patch provided by Tatsuya Bessho. (kfujino)
  • Fix: 60138: Fix the SSLHostConfig so that the protocols attribute is limited to the protocols supported by the current JSSE implementation rather than the default protocols used by the implementation. (markt)
  • Fix: 60146: Improve performance for resource retrieval by making calls to WebResource.getInputStream() trigger caching if the resource is small enough. Patch provided by mohitchugh. (markt)
  • Add: 60151: Improve the exception error messages when a ResourceLink fails to specify the type, specifies an unknown type or specifies the wrong type. (markt)
  • Fix: 60167: Ignore empty lines in /etc/passwd files when using the PasswdUserDatabase. (markt)
  • Fix: 60170: Exclude the compressed test file index.html.br from RAT analysis. Patch provided by Gavin McDonald. (markt)
  • Fix: When starting web resources, ensure that class resources are only started once. (markt)
  • Fix: Improve the access checks for linked global resources to handle the case where the current class loader is a child of the web application class loader. (markt)
  • Fix: 60196: Ensure that the isMandatory flag is correctly set when using JASPIC authentication. (markt)
  • Fix: 60199: Log a warning if deserialization issues prevent a session attribute from being loaded. (markt)
  • Fix: 60208: When using RFC6265 compliant cookies, the / character should not be allowed in a cookie name since the RFC6265 will drop such cookies as invalid. (markt)

Coyote

  • Add: Refactor the code that implements the requirement that a call to complete() or dispatch() made from a non-container thread before the container initiated thread that called startAsync() completes must be delayed until the container initiated thread has completed. Rather than implementing this by blocking the non-container thread, extend the internal state machine to track this. This removes the possibility that blocking the non-container thread could trigger a deadlock. (markt)
  • Fix: Fail earlier if the client closes the connection during SNI processing. (markt)
  • Fix: 60123: Avoid potential threading issues that could cause excessively large vales to be returned for the processing time of a current request. (markt)

  • Add: Add an example of using the classesToInitialize attribute of the JreMemoryLeakPreventionListener to the documentation web application. Based on a patch by Cris Berneburg. (markt)
  • Fix: 60192: Correct a typo in the status output of the Manager application. Patch provided by Radhakrishna Pemmasani. (markt)

jdbc-pool

  • Fix: Notify jmx when returning the connection that has been marked suspect. (kfujino)

  • Fix: Ensure that reading the singleThreadModel attribute of a StandardWrapper via JMX does not trigger initialisation of the associated servlet. With some frameworks this can trigger an unexpected initialisation thread and if initilisation is not thread-safe the initialisation can then fail. (markt)
  • Fix: Compatibility with rewrite from httpd for non existing headers. (jfclere)
  • Fix: By default, treat paths used to obtain a request dispatcher as encoded. This behaviour can be changed per web application via the dispatchersUseEncodedPaths attribute of the Context. (markt)

  • Fix: 59966: Do not start the web application if the error page configuration in web.xml is invalid. (markt)
  • Fix: Switch the CGI servlet to the standard logging mechanism and remove support for the debug attribute. (markt)
  • Fix: 60012: Improvements in the log messages. Based on suggestions by Nemo Chen. (violetagg)
  • Fix: Changes to the allowLinking attribute of a StandardRoot instance now invalidate the cache if caching is enabled. (markt)
  • Add: Add a new initialisation parameter, envHttpHeaders, to the CGI Servlet to mitigate httpoxy (CVE-2016-5388) by default and to provide a mechanism that can be used to mitigate any future, similar issues. (markt)
  • Add: When adding and removing ResourceLinks dynamically, ensure that the global resource is only visible via the ResourceLinkFactory when it is meant to be. (markt)
  • Fix: 60008: When processing CORs requests, treat any origin with a URI scheme of file as a valid origin. (markt)
  • Fix: Improve handling of exceptions during a Lifecycle events triggered by a state transition. The exception is now caught and the component is now placed into the FAILED state. (markt)

  • Fix: 60022: Improve handling when a WAR file and/or the associated exploded directory are symlinked into the appBase. (markt)
  • Fix: Fix a file descriptor leak when reading the global web.xml. (markt)
  • Fix: Consistently decode URL patterns provided via web.xml using the encoding of the web.xml file where specified or UTF-8 where no explicit encoding is specified. (markt)
  • Fix: Make timing attacks against the Realm implementations harder. (schultz)
  • Fix: A number of the JRE memory leaks addressed by the JreMemoryLeakPreventionListener have been fixed in Java 9 so the associated protection is now disabled when running on Java 9 onwards. (markt)

  • Update: Change the default of the sessionCookiePathUsesTrailingSlash attribute of the Context element to false since the problems caused when a Servlet is mapped to /* are more significant than the security risk of not enabling this option by default. (markt)
  • Fix: Follow-up to 59655. Improve the documentation for configuring permitted cookie names. Patch provided by Kyohei Nakamura. (markt)
  • Fix: Do not attempt to start web resources during a web application's initialisation phase since the web application is not fully configured at that point and the web resources may not be correctly configured. (markt)

  • Fix: Improve error handling around user code prior to calling InstanceManager.destroy() to ensure that the method is executed. (markt)

Jasper

  • Fix: Improve error handling around user code prior to calling InstanceManager.destroy() to ensure that the method is executed. (markt)

  • Fix: Improve error handling around user code prior to calling InstanceManager.destroy() to ensure that the method is executed. (markt)

Web Applications

  • Fix: Do not log an additional case of IOExceptions in the error handler for the Drawboard WebSocket example when the root cause is the client disconnecting since the logs add no value. (markt)
  • Fix: 59642: Mention the localDataSource in the DataSourceRealm section of the Realm How-To. (markt)
  • Fix: 59672: Update the security considerations page of the documentation web application to take account of the fact that the Manager and HostManager applications now have a RemoteAddrValve configured by default. (markt)
  • Fix: Follow-up to the fix for 59399. Ensure that the new attribute transportGuaranteeRedirectStatus is documented for all Realms. Also document the NullRealm and when it is automatically created for an Engine. (markt)

Extras

  • Code: 58588: Remove the JULI extras package from the distribution. It was only useful for switching Tomcat's internal logging to log4j 1.2.x and that version of log4j is no longer supported. No additional Tomcat code is required if switching Tomcat's internal logging to log via log4j 2.x. (markt)

Tribes

  • Add: Add log message when the ping has timed-out. (kfujino)
  • Fix: If the ping message has been received at the AbstractReplicatedMap#leftOver method, ensure that notify the member is alive than ignore it. (kfujino)

  • Code: Use UTF-8 with a standard prolog for all XML files. (markt)

2016-06-13 Tomcat 8.5.3

Catalina

  • Fix: RMI Target related memory leaks are avoidable which makes them an application bug that needs to be fixed rather than a JRE bug to work around. Therefore, start logging RMI Target related memory leaks on web application stop. Add an option that controls if the check for these leaks is made. Log a warning if running on Java 9 with this check enabled but without the command line option it requires. (markt)
  • Fix: Ensure NPE will not be thrown during deployment when scanning jar files without MANIFEST.MF file. (violetagg)
  • Code: Remove the clearReferencesStatic option from StandardContext. It was known to cause problems with some libraries (such as log4j) and was only linked to suspected memory leaks rather than known memory leaks. It had been disabled by default with no increase in the reports of memory leaks for some time. (markt)
  • Fix: 59604: Correct the assumption made in the URL decoding that the default platform encoding is always compatible with ISO-8859-1. This assumption is not always valid, e.g. on z/OS. (markt)
  • Fix: 59608: Skip over any invalid Class-Path attribute from JAR manifests. Log errors at debug level due to many bad libraries. (remm)
  • Fix: Fix error message when failed to register MBean. (kfujino)
  • Fix: 59655: Configure the cookie name validation to use RFC6265 rules by default to align it with the default cookie parser. Document the impact system properties have on cookie name validation. (mark)

  • Fix: 59564: Correct offset when reading into HTTP/2 input buffer that could cause problems reading request bodies. (violetagg/markt)
  • Fix: Modify the handling of read/write timeouts so that the appropriate error handling (ReadListener.onError(), WriteListener.onError() or AsycnListener.onError()) is called. (markt)
  • Fix: If an async dispatch results in the completion of request processing, ensure that any remaining request body is swallowed before starting the processing of the next request else the remaining body may be read as the start of the next request leading to a 400 response. (markt)
  • Fix: Fix a cause of multiple attempts to close the same socket. (markt)

Jasper

  • Fix: 59567: Fix NPE scanning webapps for TLDs when an exploded JAR has an empty WEB-INF/classes/META-INF folder. (remm)

  • Fix: 59269: Correct the implementation of PersistentManagerBase so that minIdleSwap functions as designed and sessions are swapped out to keep the active session count below maxActiveSessions. (markt)
  • Add: 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. (markt)
  • Fix: Correctly configure the base path for a resources directory provided by an expanded JAR file. Patch provided by hengyunabc. (markt)
  • Add: When multiple compressed formats are available and the client does not express a preference, use the server order to determine the preferred format. Based on a patch by gmokki. (markt)
  • Fix: 59284: Allow the Tomcat provided JASPIC SimpleServerAuthConfig to pick up module configuration properties from either the property set passed to its constructor or from the properties passed in the call to getAuthContext. Based on a patch by Thomas Maslen. (markt)
  • Fix: 59310: Do not add a Content-Length: 0 header for custom responses to HEAD requests that do not set a Content-Length value. (markt)

  • Fix: Use the correct URL for the fragment when reporting errors processing a web-fragment.xml file from a JAR located in an unpacked WAR. (markt)
  • Fix: Ensure that JarScanner only uses the explicit call-back to process WEB-INF/classes and only when configured to treat the contents of WEB-INF/classes as a possible exploded JAR. (markt)
  • Code: Remove the java2DDisposerProtection option from the JreMemoryLeakPreventionListener. The leak is fixed in Java 7 onwards and Tomcat 8 requires Java 7 so the option is unnecessary. (markt)

Coyote

  • Fix: Align cipher configuration parsing with current OpenSSL master. (markt)
  • Update: Change the default for honorCipherOrder to false. With the current default TLS configuration, it is no longer necessary for this to be true for a reasonably secure configuration. (markt)
  • Add: Add a new environment variable JSSE_OPTS that is intended to be used to pass JVM wide configuration to the JSSE implementation. The default value is -Djdk.tls.ephemeralDHKeySize=2048 which protects against weak Diffie-Hellman keys. (markt)
  • Fix: When running on Java 7, exclude DHE ciphers from the default cipher list for JSSE connectors since they use weak 768 bit DH keys and cannot be configured to use more secure keys. (markt)
  • Fix: 58970: Fix a connection counting bug in the NIO connector that meant some dropped connections were not removed from the current connection count. (markt)
  • Fix: 59289: Do not recycle upgrade processors in unexpected close situations. (remm)
  • Fix: 59295: Use Locale.toLanguageTag() to construct the Content-Language HTTP header to ensure the locale is correctly represented. Patch provided by zikfat. (markt)

  • Fix: In ping processing in the replication map, send not the INIT message but the newly introduced PING message. (kfujino)

Other

  • Fix: 59209: Remove honorCipherOrder=false attribute from the connector example in server.xml. When the block is uncommented the connector will use the default value for this attribute which is false. If one needs to enable it, one can add it explicitly to the connector definition. Use of this feature requires Java 8 or later. Patch is provided by Huxing Zhang. (violetagg)
  • Fix: 59211: Add hamcrest to Eclipse classpath. Patch is provided by Huxing Zhang. (violetagg)
  • Update: 59280: Update the NSIS Installer used to build the Windows Installers to version 2.51. (kkolinko)

2016-03-24 Tomcat 8.5.0

General

  • Update: Remove support for Comet. (markt)
  • Update: Tighten up the default file permissions for the .tar.gz distribution so no files or directories are world readable by default. Configure Tomcat to run with a default umask of 0027 which may be overridden by setting UMASK in setenv.sh. (markt)
  • Update: Remove native code (Windows Service Wrapper, APR/native connector) support for Windows Itanium. (markt)

Catalina

  • Update: The default HTTP cookie parser has been changed to org.apache.tomcat.util.http.Rfc6265CookieProcessor. (markt)
  • Code: Refactor creation of MapperListener to ensure that the Mapper used is the Mapper associated with the Service for which the listener was created. (markt)
  • Add: Move the functionality that provides redirects for context roots and directories where a trailing / is added from the Mapper to the DefaultServlet. This enables such requests to be processed by any configured Valves and Filters before the redirect is made. This behaviour is configurable via the mapperContextRootRedirectEnabled and mapperDirectoryRedirectEnabled attributes of the Context which may be used to restore the previous behaviour. (markt)
  • Code: Refactor Service.getContainer() to return an Engine rather than a Container. (markt)
  • Fix: 34319: Only load those keys in StoreBase.processExpire from JDBCStore that are old enough to be expired. Based on a patch by Tom Anderson. (fschumacher)
  • Add: 58351: Make the server build date and server version number accessible via JMX. Patch provided by Huxing Zhang. (markt)
  • Add: 56917: As per RFC7231 (HTTP/1.1), allow HTTP/1.1 and later redirects to use relative URIs. This is controlled by a new attribute useRelativeRedirects on the Context and defaults to true. (markt)
  • Fix: 58629: Allow an embedded Tomcat instance to start when the Service has no Engine configured. (markt)
  • Fix: Correctly notify the MapperListener associated with a Service if the Engine for that Service is changed. (markt)
  • Add: Make a web application's CredentialHandler available through a context attribute. This allows a web application to use the same algorithm for validating or generating new stored credentials from cleartext ones. (schultz)
  • Fix: 58635: Enable break points to be set within agent code when running Tomcat with a Java agent. Based on a patch by Huxing Zhang. (markt)
  • Fix: Fixed potential NPE in HostConfig while deploying an application. Issue reported by coverity scan. (violetagg)
  • Fix: 58655: Fix an IllegalStateException when calling HttpServletResponse.sendRedirect() with the RemoteIpFilter. This was caused by trying to correctly generate the absolute URI for the redirect. With the fix for 56917, redirects may now be relative making the sendRedirect() implementation for the RemoteIpFilter much simpler. This also addresses issues where the redirect may not have behaved as expected when redirecting from http to https to from https to http. (markt)
  • Fix: 58657: Exceptions in a Servlet 3.1 ReadListener or WriteListener do not need to be immediately fatal to the connection. Allow an error response to be written. (markt)
  • Fix: Correct implementation of validateClientProvidedNewSessionId so client provided session IDs may be rejected if validation is enabled. (markt)
  • Fix: 58701: Reset the instanceInitialized field in StandardWrapper when unloading a Servlet so that a new instance may be correctly initialized. (markt)
  • Update: Add a new flag aprPreferred to the Apr listener. if set to false, when using the connector defaults, it will use NIO + OpenSSL if tomcat-native is available, rather than the APR connector. (remm)
  • Fix: Add path parameter handling to HttpServletRequest.getContextPath(). This is a follow-up to the fix for 57215. (markt)
  • Fix: 58692: Make StandardJarScanner more robust. Log a warning if a class path entry cannot be scanned rather than triggering the failure of the web application. Includes a test case written by Derek Abdine. (markt)

  • Fix: Simplify code and fix messages in org.apache.catalina.core.DefaultInstanceManager class. (kkolinko)
  • Fix: 58751: Correctly handle the case where an AsyncListener dispatches to a Servlet on an asynchronous timeout and the Servlet uses sendError() to trigger an error page. Includes a test case based on code provided by Andy Wilkinson.(markt)
  • Fix: Ensure that the proper file encoding, if specified, will be used when a readme file is served by DefaultServlet. (violetagg)
  • Fix: Fix declaration of localPort attribute of Connector MBean: it is read-only. (kkolinko)
  • Fix: 58766: Make skipping non-class files during annotation scanning faster by checking the file name first. Improve debug logging. (kkolinko)
  • Fix: 58768: Log a warning if a redirect fails because of an invalid location. (markt)
  • Code: 58827: Remove remains of JSR-77 implementation. (markt)
  • Fix: 58836: Correctly merge query string parameters when processing a forwarded request where the target includes a query string that contains a parameter with no value. (markt/kkolinko)
  • Fix: Make sure that shared Digester is reset in an unlikely error case in HostConfig.deployWAR(). (kkolinko)
  • Add: Extend the feature available in the cluster session manager implementations that enables session attribute replication to be filtered based on attribute name to all session manager implementations. Note that configuration attribute name has changed from sessionAttributeFilter to sessionAttributeNameFilter. Apply the filter on load as well as unload to ensure that configuration changes made while the web application is stopped are applied to any persisted data. (markt)
  • Add: Extend the session attribute filtering options to include filtering based on the implementation class of the value and optional WARN level logging if an attribute is filtered. These options are available for all of the Manager implementations that ship with Tomcat. When a SecurityManager is used filtering will be enabled by default. (markt)
  • Code: Remove distributable and maxInactiveInterval from the Manager interface because the attributes are never used. The equivalent attributes from the Context always take precedence. (markt)
  • Fix: 58867: Improve checking on Host start for WAR files that have been modified while Tomcat has stopped and re-expand them if unpackWARs is true. (markt)
  • Fix: 58900: Correctly undeploy symlinked resources and prevent an infinite cycle of deploy / undeploy. (markt)
  • Fix: Protect initialization of ResourceLinkFactory when running with a SecurityManager. (kkolinko)
  • Fix: Correct a thread safety issue in the filtering of session attributes based on the implementing class name of the value object. (markt)

  • Fix: 58946: Ensure that the request parameter map remains immutable when processing via a RequestDispatcher. (markt)
  • Fix: Ensure that /WEB-INF/classes is never processed as a web fragment. (markt)
  • Update: Switch default connector when native is installed. Unless configured otherwise, the NIO endpoint will be used by default. If SSL is configured, OpenSSL will be used rather than JSSE. (remm)
  • Fix: Correct a regression in the fix for 58867. When configuring a Context to use an external directory for the docBase, and that directory happens to be located along side the original WAR, use the directory as the docBase rather than expanding the WAR into the appBase and using the newly created expanded directory as the docBase. (markt)
  • Add: 58988: Special characters in the substitutions for the RewriteValve can now be quoted with a backslash. (fschumacher)
  • Fix: 58999: Fix class and resource name filtering in WebappClassLoader. It throws a StringIndexOutOfBoundsException if the name is exactly "org" or "javax". (rjung)
  • Add: Add JASPIC (JSR-196) support. (markt)
  • Add: Make checking for var and map replacement in RewriteValve a bit stricter and correct detection of colon in var replacement. (fschumacher)
  • Fix: Refactor the web application class loader to reduce the impact of JAR scanning on the memory footprint of the web application. (markt)
  • Fix: Fix some resource leaks in the error handling for accessing files from JARs and WARs. (markt)
  • Fix: Refactor the JAR and JAR-in-WAR resource handling to reduce the memory footprint of the web application. (markt)
  • Fix: Refactor the web.xml parsing so a new parser is created every time the web application starts rather than creating and caching the parser when the Context is created. This enables the parser to take account of modified Context configuration parameters and reduces (slightly) the memory footprint of a running Tomcat instance. (markt)
  • Update: Switch the web application class loader to the ParallelWebappClassLoader by default. (markt)
  • Fix: 57809: Remove the custom context attribute that held the effective web.xml. Components needing access to configuration information may access it via the Servlet API. (markt)
  • Fix: Refactor JAR scanning to reduce memory footprint. (markt)
  • Fix: 59001: Correctly handle the case when Tomcat is installed on a path where one of the segments ends in an exclamation mark. (markt)
  • Fix: Expand the fix for 59001 to cover the special sequences used in Tomcat's custom jar:war: URLs. (markt)
  • Fix: 59043: Avoid warning while expiring sessions associated with a single sign on if HttpServletRequest.logout() is used. (markt)
  • Fix: 59054: Ensure that using the CrawlerSessionManagerValve in a distributed environment does not trigger an error when the Valve registers itself in the session. (markt)
  • Fix: Add socket properties support to storeconfig. (remm)
  • Fix: Fix incorrect parsing of the NE and NC flags in rewrite rules. (remm)
  • Fix: 59065: Correct the timing of the check for colons in paths on non-Windows systems implemented in catalina.sh so it works correctly with Cygwin. Patch provided by Ed Randall. (markt)
  • Fix: When a Host is configured with an appBase that does not exist, create the appBase before trying to expand an external WAR file into it. (markt)
  • Fix: 59115: When using the Servlet 3.0 file upload, the submitted file name may be provided as a token or a quoted-string. If a quoted-string, unquote the string before returning it to the user. (markt)
  • Fix: 59123: Close NamingEnumeration objects used by the JNDIRealm once they are no longer required. (fschumacher/markt)
  • Add: Implement the proposed Servlet 4.0 API to provide mapping type information for the current request. (markt)
  • Fix: 59138: Correct a false positive warning for ThreadLocal related memory leaks when the key class but not the value class has been loaded by the web application class loader. (markt)
  • Add: 59017: Make the pre-compressed file support in the Default Servlet generic so any compression may be used rather than just gzip. Patch provided by Mikko Tiihonen. (markt)
  • Fix: 59145: Don't log an invalid warning when a user logs out of a session associated with SSO. (markt)
  • Fix: 59150: Add an additional flag on APR listener to allow disabling automatic use of OpenSSL. (remm)
  • Fix: 59151: Fix a regression in the fix for 56917 that added additional (and arguably unnecessary) validation to the provided redirect location. (markt)
  • Fix: 59154: Fix a NullPointerException in the JAASMemoryLoginModule resulting from the introduction of the CredentialHandler to Realms. (schultz/markt)

  • Add: Add SSL engine for JSSE backed by OpenSSL. Includes ALPN support. Based on code contributed by Numa de Montmollin and derived from code developed by Twitter and Netty. (remm)
  • Fix: RFC 7230 states that clients should ignore reason phrases in HTTP/1.1 response messages. Since the reason phrase is optional, Tomcat no longer sends it. As a result the system property org.apache.coyote.USE_CUSTOM_STATUS_MSG_IN_HEADER is no longer used and has been removed. (markt)
  • Update: The minimum required Tomcat Native version has been increased to 1.2.2. The 1.2.x branch includes ALPN and SNI support which are required for HTTP/2. (markt)
  • Add: Add support for HTTP/2 including server push. (markt)
  • Fix: 58621: The certificate chain cannot be set using the main certificate attribute, so restore the certificate chain property. (remm)

  • Add: Document test.threads option in BUILDING.txt. (kkolinko)
  • Fix: Correct an error in the documentation of the expected behaviour for automatic deployment. If a WAR is updated and an expanded directory is present, the directory will always be deleted and recreated by expanding the WAR if unpackWARs is true. (markt)
  • Fix: 58935: Remove incorrect references in the documentation to using jar:file: URLs with the Manager application. (markt)
  • Fix: Correct the description of the ServletRequest.getServerPort() in Proxy How-To. Issue reported via comments.apache.org. (violetagg)
