2024-01-09 Tomcat 8.5.98 Released

The Apache Tomcat Project is proud to announce the release of version 8.5.98 of Apache Tomcat. This release implements specifications that are part of the Java EE 7 platform. The notable changes compared to 8.5.97 include:

  • Fix virtual thread support for the NIO2 connector.
  • Correct a regression in the fix for 67675 that broke TLS key file parsing for PKCS#8 format keys that do not specify an explicit pseudo-random function and rely on the default. This typically affects keys generated by OpenSSL 1.0.2.
  • Allow multiple operations with the same name on introspected mbeans, fixing a regression caused by the introduction of a second addSslHostConfig() method.

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

Please note that Apache Tomcat 8.5.x will reach End-of-life (EOL) on 31 March 2024.

2024-01-09 Tomcat 10.1.18 Released

The Apache Tomcat Project is proud to announce the release of version 10.1.18 of Apache Tomcat. This release implements specifications that are part of the Jakarta EE 10 platform.

Applications that run on Tomcat 9 and earlier will not run on Tomcat 10 without changes. Java EE based applications designed for Tomcat 9 and earlier may be placed in the $CATALINA_BASE/webapps-javaee directory and Tomcat will automatically convert them to Jakarta EE and copy them to the webapps directory. This conversion is performed using the Apache Tomcat migration tool for Jakarta EE tool which is also available as a separate download for off-line use.

The notable changes in this release are:

  • Fix virtual thread support for the NIO2 connector.
  • Correct a regression in the fix for 67675 that broke TLS key file parsing for PKCS#8 format keys that do not specify an explicit pseudo-random function and rely on the default. This typically affects keys generated by OpenSSL 1.0.2.
  • Allow multiple operations with the same name on introspected mbeans, fixing a regression caused by the introduction of a second addSslHostConfig() method.

Full details of these changes, and all the other changes, are available in the Tomcat 10.1 changelog.

2024-01-09 Tomcat 11.0.0-M16 Released

The Apache Tomcat Project is proud to announce the release of version 11.0.0-M16 (alpha) of Apache Tomcat. This release is a milestone release and is targeted at Jakarta EE 11.

Users of Tomcat 10 onwards should be aware that, as a result of the move from Java EE to Jakarta EE as part of the transfer of Java EE to the Eclipse Foundation, the primary package for all implemented APIs has changed from javax.* to jakarta.*. This will almost certainly require code changes to enable applications to migrate from Tomcat 9 and earlier to Tomcat 10 and later. A migration tool is available to aid this process.

The notable changes in this release are:

  • Fix virtual thread support for the NIO2 connector
  • Correct a regression in the fix for 67675 that broke TLS key file parsing for PKCS#8 format keys that do not specify an explicit pseudo-random function and rely on the default. This typically affects keys generated by OpenSSL 1.0.2.
  • Allow multiple operations with the same name on introspected mbeans, fixing a regression caused by the introduction of a second addSslHostConfig() method.

Full details of these changes, and all the other changes, are available in the Tomcat 11 (alpha) changelog.
