Tomcat 6.0.48 (violetagg)
fix Correctly test for control characters when reading the provided shutdown password. (markt)
fix When configuring the JMX remote listener, specify the allowed types for the credentials. (markt)
fix Correct the HTTP header parser so that DEL is not treated as a valid token character. (markt)
add Add additional checks for valid characters to the HTTP request line parsing so invalid request lines are rejected sooner. (markt)
Web applications
fix Correct a typo in CGI How-To. Issue reported via (violetagg)
add 55017: Add the ability to configure the RMI bind address when using the JMX remote listener. Patch provided by Alexey Noskov. (markt)
fix 56039: Enable the JmxRemoteLifecycleListener to work over SSL. Patch by esengstrom. (markt)
fix 56096: When the attribute rmiBindAddress of the JMX Remote Lifecycle Listener is specified it's value will be used when constructing the address of a JMX API connector server. Patch is provided by Jim Talbut. (markt)
fix 57377: Remove the restriction that prevented the use of SSL when specifying a bind address with the JMXRemoteLifecycleListener. Also enable SSL to be configured for the registry as well as the server. (markt)
Tomcat 6.0.47 (violetagg)released 2016-10-16
fix Fixed a warning message that is logged during Tomcat startup. (violetagg)
Tomcat 6.0.46 (violetagg)not released
add Log a warning message if a user tries to configure the default session timeout via the deprecated (and ignored) Manager.setMaxInactiveInterval() method. (markt)
fix Correct a regression introduced in 6.0.45 where the deprecated Manager.getMaxInactiveInterval() method returned the current default session timeout in minutes rather than seconds. (markt)
fix 58486: Expand memory leak protection to include additional issues identified related to XML parsing. (markt)
fix 59123: Close NamingEnumeration objects used by the JNDIRealm once they are no longer required. (fschumacher/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)
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)
fix 59247: Preload ResourceEntry as a workaround for security manager issues on some JVMs. (kkolinko/remm)
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 59449: In ContainerBase, ensure that the process to remove a child container is the reverse of the process to add one. Patch provided by Huxing Zhang. (markt)
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 59708: Modify the LockOutRealm logic. Valid authentication attempts during the lock out period will no longer reset the lock out timer to zero. (markt)
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)
add Provide a mechanism that enables the container to check if a component (typically a web application) has been granted a given permission when running under a SecurityManager without the current execution stack having to have passed through the component. Use this new mechanism to extend SecurityManager protection to the system property replacement feature of the digester. (markt)
add When retrieving an object via a ResourceLink, ensure that the object obtained is of the expected type. (markt)
fix Switch the CGI servlet to the standard logging mechanism and remove support for the debug attribute. (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 Make timing attacks against the Realm implementations harder. (schultz/markt)
fix Ensure Digester.useContextClassLoader is considered in case the class loader is used. (violetagg)
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 Correct basePackage and PrivilegedFindResourceByName in SecurityClassLoad so that tomcat can successfully start with the Security Manager enabled. (csutherl)
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 58646: Correct a problem with sendfile that resulted in a Processor being added to the cache twice leading to broken responses. (markt)
fix Limit the default TLS ciphers for JSSE (BIO, NIO) and OpenSSL (APR) to those currently considered secure. (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 59451: Correct Javadoc for MessageBytes. Patch provided by Kyohei Nakamura. (markt)
fix Ensure that requests with HTTP method names that are not tokens (as required by RFC 7231) are rejected with a 400 response. (markt)
fix 59904: Add a limit (default 200) for the number of cookies allowed per request. Based on a patch by gehui. (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)
fix Fix a memory leak in the expression language implementation that caused the class loader of the first web application to use expressions to be pinned in memory. (markt)
fix 59654: Enforce the requirements of section 7.3.1 of the JSP specification regarding the permitted locations for TLD files. Patch provided by Huxing Zhang. (markt)
fix Catch and log any Exceptions during calls to Servlet.destroy() when destroying the Servlet associated with a JSP page. (markt)
fix Improve the error handling for custom tags to ensure that the tag is returned to the pool or released and destroyed once used. (markt)

fix Update in the documentation the link to the maven repository where Tomcat snapshot artifacts are deployed. (markt/violetagg)
fix Clarify in the documentation that calls to ServletContext.log(String, Throwable) or GenericServlet.log(String, Throwable) are logged at the SEVERE level. (violetagg)
fix Correct a typo in SSL/TLS Configuration How-To. Issue reported via (violetagg)
fix 58891: Update the SSL how-to. Based on a suggestion by Alexander Kjäll. (markt)

update 59280: Update the NSIS Installer used to build the Windows Installers to version 2.51. (kkolinko)
fix 58626: Add support for a new environment variable (USE_NOHUP) that causes nohup to be used when starting Tomcat. It is disabled by default except on HP-UX where it is enabled by default since it is required when starting Tomcat at boot on HP-UX. (markt)
add Use the mirror network rather than the ASF master site to download the current ASF dependencies. (markt)
update Update the packaged version of the Tomcat Native Library to 1.2.10 to pick up the latest Windows binaries built with OpenSSL 1.0.2j. (markt)
Tomcat 6.0.45 (jfclere)released 2016-02-11
fix Back-port various improvements to the AprLifecycleListener including the fix for 57021 that improves logging when the Tomcat-Native DLL fails to load. (markt)
add 57154: Add support for web applications (Context elements) that do not have a docBase. This is intended for use when embedding, such as Tomcat unit tests, when a web application is configured programmatically and does not serve any files. Based on a patch provided by Huxing Zhang. (kkolinko)
add 57741: Enable the CGI servlet to use the standard error page mechanism. Note that if the CGI servlet's debug init parameter is set to 10 or higher then the standard error page mechanism will be bypassed and a debug response generated by the CGI servlet will be returned instead. (markt)
fix 57896: Support defensive copying of "cookie" header so that unescaping double quotes in a cookie value does not corrupt original value of "cookie" header. This is an opt-in feature, enabled by org.apache.tomcat.util.http.ServerCookie.PRESERVE_COOKIE_HEADER or org.apache.catalina.STRICT_SERVLET_COMPLIANCE system property. (kkolinko)
fix 58031: Make the (first) reason parameter parsing failed available as a request attribute and then use it to provide a better status code via the FailedRequstFilter (if configured). (markt)
fix 58313: Fix concurrent access of encoders map when clearing encoders during Comet processing. (markt)
fix 58508: Escape role names when generating associated MBeans in case the role name contains characters not permitted in an MBean name. (markt)
fix 58582: Combined realm should perform background processing on its sub-realms. Based upon a patch provided by Aidan. (kkolinko)
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)
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 Add the StatusManagerServlet to the list of Servlets that can only be loaded by privileged applications. (markt)
fix Remove redundant copy of from o.a.c.startup. Generate this copy during the ant "compile" task. (kkolinko)
fix 58817: Fix ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsException caused by MapperListener when ROOT context is being undeployed and mapperContextRootRedirectEnabled="false". (kkolinko)
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)
add Allow singleton server instance stored by ServerFactory to be cleared. Allow ResourceLinkFactory to be initialized more than once. This is used by unit tests when running several copies of Tomcat sequentially in the same JVM. When running with a SecurityManager the initialization method of ResourceLinkFactory is protected by requiring a RuntimePermission. (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)
fix 58946: Ensure that the request parameter map remains immutable when processing via a RequestDispatcher. (markt)
add Align the Java side of the tc-native connector with the Tomcat 7 implementation to ease future maintenance. (markt)
fix 51503: Add additional validation that prevents a connector from starting if it does not have a valid port number. (kkolinko)
add 52028: Add support for automatic binding to a free port by a connector if the special value of zero is used for the port. This is mainly useful in embedded and testing scenarios. (kkolinko)
fix 52926: Avoid NPE when an NIO Comet connection times out on one thread at the same time as it is closed on another thread. (markt/kkolinko)
fix 57943: Prevent the same socket being added to the cache twice. Patch based on analysis by Ian Luo / Sun Qi. (markt/kkolinko)
