2015-05-05 Tomcat 8.0.22 Released

The Apache Tomcat Project is proud to announce the release of version 8.0.22 of Apache Tomcat. Apache Tomcat 8.0.22 includes a numerous fixes for issues identified in 8.0.21 as well as a number of other enhancements and changes. The notable changes since 8.0.21 include:

  • Change the format of the Tomcat specific URLs for resources inside JARs that are in turn packed in a WAR. The ^/ sequence has been replaced by */ so that the resulting URLs are compliant with RFC 2396 and do not trigger exceptions when converted to URIs. The old format will continue to be accepted.
  • Allow logging of the remote port in the access log using the format pattern %{remote}p.
  • When checking last modified times as part of the automatic deployment process, account for the fact that File.lastModified() has a resolution of one second to ensure that if a file has been modified within the last second, the latest version of the file is always used. Note that a side-effect of this change is that files with modification times in the future are treated as if they are unmodified.
  • Align redeploy resource modification checking with reload modification checking so that now, in both cases, a change in modification time rather than an increase in modification time is used to determine if the resource has changed.

Note: There is a known issue with NIO2 and SSL/TLS in this and previous releases that can result in dropped connections. It is not recommended that NIO2 is used in production with SSL/TLS until this issue is resolved (the fix is expected in 8.0.23).

Full details of these changes, and all the other changes, are available in the Tomcat 8 changelog.
