Tomcat 7.0.20 (markt)
Catalina
fix Corrected missing comma in the value of jarsToSkip property in conf/catalina.properties file, which caused tomcat-jdbc.jar and commons-beanutils*.jar to be not ignored when scanning jars for tag libraries. (kkolinko)
fix : Provide exception messages where no message is provided currently for IllegalStateExcpetions triggered by calling HttpServletResponse methods when the reponse is committed. (markt)
fix : Fix potential concurrency issue in CSRF prevention filter that may lead to some requests failing that should not. (markt)
fix : Correct error in web.xml parsing rules for the <others/> tag when using absolute ordering. (markt)
add Move the SetCharacterEncoding filter from the examples web application to the org.apache.catalina.filters package so it is available for all web applications. (markt)
fix : Internal errors in Tomcat components that process requests before they are passed to a web application, such as Authenticators, now return a 500 response rather than a 200 response. (markt)
fix : Allow destroy() to be called on Lifecycle components that are in the initialized state. (markt)
add Add x-threadname pattern format token to ExtendedAccessLogValve to log the current request thread name. Based on a patch from Felix Schumacher. (timw)
fix : Ensure file paths are encoded/decoded when translated to/from URLs when working with resources from a Context so special characters don't cause issues. (markt)
fix : Expand error handling to cover anything that is recoverable (or might be recoverable) when loading classes during HandlesTypes processing. (markt)
fix : Make it easier to extend the AccessLogValve to add support for custom elements. (markt)
fix Ensure that calls to StandardWrapper methods() that may trigger creation of a Servlet instance always do so in way that correctly instantiates a Servlet instance. (markt)
fix In JDBCStore: Committing connection if autoCommit is false. Make sure committed connection is returned to the pool if datasource is enabled. (kfujino)
add Split condition attribute of AccessLogValve into two, conditionIf and conditionUnless. Implement conditional logging that logs only if a request attribute is present. (kkolinko)
fix Allow to have several AccessLogValve instances in the same scope (e.g. in the same Context). (kkolinko)
fix : If an unchecked exception occurs during a lifecycle transition (e.g. web application start) ensure that the component is put into the failed state. (markt)
fix : Avoid calling store.load() and session.expire() twice in PersistentManager when expiring sessions. (kfujino)
fix Prevent spurious log warnings on container stop if a child component has previously failed. (markt)
fix Add missing getter and setter for the alwaysUseSession attribute of the authenticators. (markt)
Coyote
fix : Prevent JVM crash with the AJP APR connector when flushing a closed socket. (jfclere)
fix : Return -1 instead throwing an exception when encountering an EOF while processing an input stream with the HTTP APR connector. (jfclere)
fix Correctly handle a connectionTimeout value of -1 (no timeout) for the HTTP NIO and AJP NIO connectors. (markt)
fix : Add additional validation that prevents a connector from starting if it does not have a port > 0. (markt)
fix : Ignore HTTP headers that do not comply with RFC 2616 and use header names that are not tokens. (markt)
add Improve error handling for HTTP APR if an error occurs while using sendfile. (markt)
fix Ensure that when using sendfile, HTTP APR sockets are not added to multiple pollers. This may cause errors during shutdown. (markt)
update Set reuse flag of final AJP END_RESPONSE packet to 0 if we plan to close the connection. (rjung)
update Correctly indicate if socket is closing when calling recycle for the AJP NIO processor. Note since the flag is unused in this case there were no bugs triggered by the re-factoring error. (rjung)
Jasper
fix : JSP files with dependencies in JARs were recompiled on every access leading to poor performance. (markt)
fix : Correctly resolve bean methods in EL so accessible methods that are overridden by inaccessible methods do not cause an IllegalAccessException. (markt)

fix : Correct code for processing @HandlesTypes annotations so only types of interest are reported to a ServletContainerInitializer. (markt)
update Add the Tomcat extras, ant-junit and Java Help Jars to the list of JARs to skip when scanning for TLDs and web fragments. (rjung)
fix The fix for bug caused a regression that re-introduced bug and deleted the contents of the work directory when Tomcat was shutdown. This fix ensures that that work directory for an application is not deleted when Tomcat is shutdown. (markt)
fix Correct issues with JULI's OneLineFormatter including: correctly re-using formatted timestamps when possible; thread-safety issues in timestamp formatting; correcting the output of any milliseconds to include leading zeros and formatting any parameters present. (kkolinko/markt/rjung)
fix : Fix memory leak triggered when an application that includes a SAXParserFactory is the first web application to be loaded. (markt)
fix : Correctly handle jsp-file entries in web.xml when the JSP servlet has been configured via code when embedding Tomcat. (markt)
fix : Avoid known bottleneck in JVM when converting between Strings and bytes by always providing a Charset rather than an encoding name. Based on a patch by Dave Engberg. (markt)
fix : Correctly initialise shared WebRuleSet instance used by the digesters that parse web.xml and prevent incorrect warnings about multiple occurrences of elements that are only allowed to appear once in web.xml and web-fragment.xml. (kfujino)
add : Avoid NPE in JULI FileHandler if formatter is misconfigured. (kkolinko)
fix Previous improvements in JAR scanning performance introduced a start-up performance penalty for some use cases. This fix addresses those performance penalties while retaining the original improvements. (markt)
add : Provide more control over Context creation when embedding Tomcat. Based on a patch by Benson Margulies. (markt/kkolinko)
fix Remove redundant copy of catalina.properties from o.a.c.startup. Generate this copy for inclusion in bin and src jars during the ant "compile" task. (rjung)
fix Use system properties loaded from catalina.properties via the class path in unit tests. (rjung)
update Improve JMX unit test. (rjung)
fix Fix IllegalStateException for JavaScript files when switching from Writer to OutputStream. The special handling of this case in the DefaultServlet was broken due to a MIME type change for JavaScript. (funkman)

fix Fix an issue with the CrawlerSessionManagerValve that meant sessions were not always correctly tracked. (markt)
fix : Send 100 (Continue) response earlier to enable ServletRequestListener implementations to read the request body. Based on a patch by Simon Olofsson. (markt)
fix Ensure an access log entry is made if an error occurs during asynchronous request processing and the socket is immediately closed. (markt)
fix Ensure that if asyncDispatch() is called during an onTimeout event and the target Servlet does not call startAsync() or complete() that Tomcat calls complete() once the target Servlet exits. (markt)
fix Improve the handling for Servlets that implement the deprecated SingleThreadModel when embedding Tomcat. (markt)
fix : Correctly initialise all instances of Servlets that implement SingleThreadModel. Based on a patch by Felix Schumacher. (markt)
fix : Fix a regression in the preemptive authentication support (enhancement ) that could trigger authentication even if preemptive authentication was disabled. (markt)
fix Prevent possible NPE when serving Servlets that implement the SingleThreadModel interface. (markt)
fix In launcher for embedded Tomcat: do not change catalina.home system property if it had a value. (kkolinko)
fix When using Servlets that implement the SingleThreadModel interface, add the single instance created to the pool when it is determined that a pool of servlets is required rather than throwing it away. (markt)
Coyote
fix Fix unit test for bindOnInit which was failing for APR on some platforms. (rjung)
fix Remove superfluous quotes from thread names for connection pools. (rjung)
fix Fix crash observed during pausing the connector when using APR. Only add socket to poller if we are sure we don't close it later. (rjung)

fix Correct a regression introduced in Apache Tomcat 7.0.11 that broke certificate revocation list handling. (markt)
Jasper
update Improve the message printed by TldLocationsCache and add configuration example to the logging.properties file. (kkolinko)
fix : Recompile JSPs if last modified time of the source or any of its dependencies changes either forwards or backwards. Note that this introduces an incompatible change to the code generated for JSPs. Tomcat will automatically re-compile any JSPs and tag files found in the work directory when upgrading from 7.0.16 or earlier to 7.0.17 or later. If you later downgrade from 7.0.17 or later to 7.0.16 or earlier, you must empty the work directory as part of the downgrade process. (markt)
fix : Handle the case where tag file attributes (which can use any valid XML name) have a name which is not a Java identifier. (markt/kkolinko)
add Broaden the exception handling in the EL Parser so that more failures to parse an expression include the failed expression in the exception message. Hopefully, this will help track down the cause of . (markt)
Cluster
fix : Avoid NPE when handleSESSION_EXPIRED is processed while handleSESSION_CREATED is being processed. (kfujino)
fix Notifications of changes in session ID to other nodes in the cluster should be controlled by notifySessionListenersOnReplication rather than notifyListenersOnReplication. (markt)
fix The change in session ID is notified to the container event listener on the backup node in cluster. This notification is controlled by notifyContainerListenersOnReplication.(kfujino)
Web applications
fix Update Maven repository information in the documentation to reflect current usage. (markt)
add : Add host name and IP address to the HTML Manager application. Patch by Dennis Lundberg. (markt)
fix Add session="false" directive to the index page of the ROOT web application. (kkolinko)
fix : Document the notifySessionListenersOnReplication attribute for the DeltaManager. (markt)
fix : Viewing a back up session in the HTML Manager web application no longer changes the session to a primary session. Based on a patch provided by Eiji Takahashi. (markt)
Other
fix : Install monitor to auto-start for current user only rather than all users to be consistent with menu item creation. (markt)
add : Provide an option to install shortcuts for the current user or all users. Also ensure registry is correctly cleaned on uninstall for 64-bit platforms. (markt)
add : Provide the ability to specify the AJP port and service name when installing Tomcat using the Windows installer. This permits multiple instances of the same Tomcat version to be installed side-by-side. (markt)
update Clean up shell and batch scripts (improve consistency, clarify comments, add configtest command support for Windows). (rjung)
fix : Make CATALINA_BASE visible for setenv.sh. (rjung)

fix Correct a regression in the fix for that prevented any web application from being marked as distributable. (kfujino/markt)
fix Correct a regression in the fix for that prevented a web application from overriding the default welcome files. (markt)
fix Enable remaining valves for Servlet 3 asynchronous processing support. (markt)
fix Avoid possible NPE when logging requests received during embedded Tomcat shutdown. (markt)

fix : Fix problem with Lifecycle re-factoring for deprecated embedded class that prevented events being triggered. (markt)
fix : Prevent possible NPE when processing WebDAV locks. (markt)
Coyote
fix When parsing the port in the HTTP host header, restrict the value to be base 10 integer digits rather than hexadecimal ones. (rjung/markt/kkolinko)
update Various refactorings to reduce code duplication and unnecessary code in the connectors. (markt)
Jasper
update Change JAR scanning log messages where no TLDs are found to DEBUG level and replace the multiple messages with a single INFO level message that indicates that at least one JAR was scanned needlessly and how to obtain more info. (markt)
Cluster
fix Enable Servlet 3 asynchronous processing support when using clustering. (markt)
Web applications
fix Correct the log4j configuration settings when defining conversion patterns in the documentation web application. (markt)
Tomcat 7.0.15 (markt)not released

fix : Improve error message if an application is deployed with an incomplete FORM authentication configuration. (markt)
fix : Allow ServletContainerInitializers to override settings in the global default web.xml and the host web.xml. (markt)
fix : When stopping the Server object on shutdown call destroy() after calling stop(). (markt)
Coyote
add : Add an AJP-NIO connector. (markt/rjung)
Jasper

fix Ensure that the SSLValve provides the SSL key size as an Integer rather than a String. (markt)
fix Ensure that the RemoteIpValve works correctly with Servlet 3.0 asynchronous requests. (markt)
fix Use safe equality test when determining event type in the MapperListener. (markt)
fix Use correct class loader when loading Servlet classes in StandardWrapper. (markt)
add Provide additional configuration options for the RemoteIpValve and RemoteIpFilter to allow greater control over the values returned by ServletRequest#getServerPort() and ServletRequest#getLocalPort() when Tomcat is behind a reverse proxy. (markt)
fix Ensure session cookie paths end in / so that session cookies created for a context with a path of /foo do not get returned with requests mapped to a context with a path of /foobar. (markt)
Jasper
fix : Ensure Tomcat's MapElResolver always returns Object.class for getType() as required by the EL specification. (markt)
Tomcat 7.0.13 (markt)not released
Catalina
fix Correct mix-up in Realm Javadoc. (markt)

fix : Ensure that asynchronous requests are included in access logs. (markt)
fix : Don't trigger session creation listeners when a session ID is changed as part of the authentication process. (markt)
fix : Add additional common but non-standard file extension to MIME type mappings for MPEG 4 files. Based on a patch by Cédrik Lime. (markt)
add Add some additional common JARs that do not contain TLDs or web fragments to the list of JARs to skip when scanning for TLDs and web fragments. (markt)
fix While scanning JARs for TLDs and fragments, avoid using JarFile and use JarInputStream as in most circumstances where JARs are scanned, JarFile will create a temporary copy of the JAR rather than using the resource directly. This change significantly improves startup performance for applications with lots of JARs to be scanned. (markt)
fix Ensure response is committed when AsyncContext#complete() is called. (markt)
add Add a container event that is fired when a session's ID is changed, e.g. on authentication. (markt)

fix : Add additional Microsoft Office MIME type mappings. (rjung)
add Partial sync of MIME type mapping with mime.types from the Apache web server. About 600 MIME types added, some changed. (rjung)
fix Make access logging more robust when logging requests that generate 400 responses since the request object is unlikely to be fully/correctly populated in that case. (markt)
Coyote
fix : Fix regression in HTTP BIO connector that triggered errors when processing pipe-lined requests. (markt)
fix : Ensure the asynchronous requests never timeout if the timeout is set to zero or less. Based on a patch provided by Chris. (markt)
fix : Throw an exception and do not start the APR connector if it is configured for SSL and an invalid value is provided for SSLProtocol. (markt)
fix Align all the connector implementations with the documented default setting for processorCache of 200. This changes the default from -1 (unlimited) for the AJP-BIO, AJP-APR and HTTP-APR connectors. Additional information was also added to the documentation on how to select an appropriate value.
fix Take account of time spent waiting for a processing thread when calculating connection and keep-alive timeouts for the HTTP BIO connector. (markt)
fix : Don't trigger a NullPointerException when the SSL handshake fails with the HTTP-APR connector. Patch provided by Mike Glazer. (markt)
fix Improve handling in AJP connectors of the case where too large a AJP packet is received. (markt)
fix Restore the automatic disabling of HTTP keep-alive with the BIO connector once 75% of the processing threads are in use and make the threshold configurable. (markt)
fix Make pollerSize and maxConnections synonyms for the APR connectors since they perform the same function. (markt)
fix Use maxThreads rather than 10000 as the default maxConnections for the BIO connectors. (markt)
Jasper
fix : Correctly coerce the empty string to zero when used as an operand in EL arithmetic. Patch provided by gbt. (markt)
add Label JSP/tag file line and column numbers when reporting errors since it may not be immediately obvious what the numbers represent. (markt)
fix Correct a regression in the fix for that resulted in JSPs being compiled twice rather than just once. (markt)
add Log JARs that are scanned for TLDs where no TLD is found so that users can easily identify JARs that can be added to the list of JARs to skip. (markt)
update Use a single TLD location cache for a web application rather than one per JSP compilation to speed up JSP compilation. (markt)
add : Refactor BodyContentImpl to assist in determining the root cause of this bug. Based on a patch by Ramiro. (markt)
Cluster
fix : Correct possible NotSerializableException for an authenticated session when running with a security manager. (markt)
Web applications
update Configure Security Manager How-To to include a copy of the actual conf/catalina.policy file when the documentation is built, rather than maintaining a copy of its content. (kkolinko)
fix Fix broken stylesheet URL in XML based manager status output. (rjung)
fix : Ensure session expiration option is available in Manager application was running web applications that were defined in server.xml. (markt)
Other
update Clarify error messages in *.sh files to mention that if a script is not found it might be because execute permission is needed. (kkolinko)
update Update commons pool to 1.5.6. (markt)
fix : Fix auto-detection of JAVA_HOME for 64-bit Windows platforms that only have a 32-bit JVM installed. (markt)
fix : Remove duplicate @deprecated tags in ServletContext Javadoc. Patch provided by sebb. (markt)
fix : Add comments to @deprecated tags that have none. Patch provided by sebb. (markt)
Tomcat 7.0.12 (markt)released 2011-04-06
Catalina

fix Remove unnecessary whitespace from MIME mapping entries in global web.xml file. (markt)
fix When using parallel deployment, correctly handle the scenario when the client sends multiple JSESSIONID cookies. (markt)
add : Add support (disabled by default) for preemptive authentication. This can be configured per context. Based on a patch suggested by Werner Donn. (markt)
fix : When wrapping an exception, include the root cause. Patch provided by sebb. (markt)
fix Make the CSRF nonce cache serializable so that it can be replicated across a cluster and/or persisted across Tomcat restarts. (markt)
update Resolve some refactoring TODOs in the implementation of the new Context attribute "swallowAbortedUploads". (markt)
fix Include the seed time when calculating the time taken to create SecureRandom instances for session ID generation, report excessive times (greater than 100ms) at INFO level and provide a value for the message key so a meaningful message appears in the logs. (markt)
fix Don't register Contexts that fail to start with the Mapper. (markt)
add : Add initial support for SPNEGO/Kerberos authentication also referred to as integrated Windows authentication. This includes user authentication, authorisation via the directory using the user's delegated credentials and exposing the user's delegated credentials via a request attribute so applications can make use of them to impersonate the current user when accessing third-party systems that use a compatible authentication mechanism. Based on a patch provided by Michael Osipov. (markt)
fix HTTP range requests cannot be reliably served when a Writer is in use so prevent the DefaultServlet from attempting to do so. (kkolinko)
fix Protect the DefaultServlet from Valves, Filters and Wrappers that write content to the response. Prevent partial responses to partial GET requests in this case since the range cannot be reliably determined. Also prevent the DefaultServlet from setting a content length header since this too cannot be reliably determined. (markt)
fix : Fix regression in fix for that called close on a JNDI resource while it was still available to the application. (markt)
add Provide a configuration option that lets the close method to be used for a JNDI Resource to be defined by the user. This change also disables using the close method unless one is explicitly defined for the resource and limits it to singleton resources. (markt)
fix Correctly track changes to context.xml files and trigger redeployment when copyXML is set to false. (markt)
fix : Relax the requirement that directories must have a name ending in .jar to be treated as an expanded JAR file by the default JarScanner. Based on patch by Rodion Zhitomirsky. (markt)
fix Don't append the jvmRoute to a session ID if the jvmRoute is a zero length string. (markt)
