2019-02-08 Tomcat 9.0.16 Released

The Apache Tomcat Project is proud to announce the release of version 9.0.16 of Apache Tomcat. The notable changes compared to 9.0.14 include:

  • Update the packaged version of the Tomcat Native Library to 1.2.21 to pick up the memory leak fixes when using NIO/NIO2 with OpenSSL.
  • Remove extras (JMX remote listener and web services object factories) and merge them back into the core build.
  • Correct a regression in the fix for 53737 that did not correctly scan the web application directory structure for JSPs.
  • Improve HTTP/2 timeout handling

Full details of these changes, and all the other changes, are available in the Tomcat 9 changelog.

Warning: There is a known regression in catalina.sh script. In configurations that use a PID file (configured via CATALINA_PID environment variable) a wrong PID value may be written, or the file is not created at all. See bug 63041 (and 53930). The workaround is to use catalina.sh file from Tomcat 9.0.13.
