2020-03-02 End of life for Apache Tomcat 7.0.x

The Apache Tomcat® team announces that support for Apache Tomcat 7.0.x will end on 31 March 2021.

This means that after 31 March 2021:

  • releases from the 7.0.x branch are highly unlikely
  • bugs affecting only the 7.0.x branch will not be addressed
  • security vulnerability reports will not be checked against the 7.0.x branch

Three months later (i.e. some time after 30 June 2021):

  • the 7.0.x download pages will be removed
  • the latest 7.0.x release will be removed from the mirror system
  • the 7.0.x branch will be made read-only
  • the links to the 7.0.x documentation will be removed from
  • The bugzilla project for 7.0.x will be made read-only

Note that all 7.0.x releases will always be available from the archive.

It is anticipated that the final 7.0.x release will be made shortly before 31 March 2021.
