Tomcat 7.0.12 Released

The Apache Tomcat team has released version 7.0.12, which comprises mostly bugfixes but does include some new functionality as well.  From the release announcement, Tomcat 7.0.12 includes:

  • initial support for SPNEGO/Kerberos authentication (also referred to as Windows authentication);
  • provide a new configuration option to define a close method to call on a JNDI resource when it is no longer required;
  • optional support for pre-emptive authentication.

The changelog provides more details on what is new and/or fixed in this version.  Download Tomcat 7.0.12 from a mirror near you!

Apache Tomcat 7.0.11 Released

The Apache Tomcat team released version 7.0.11 today, which primarily addresses the security issues not completely mitigated in the recently released 7.0.10 version.  The changelog also lists a bunch of additional bug fixes, which I did not expect.

Apache Tomcat 7.0.10 Released

The Apache Tomcat team released version 7.0.10 today.  Changes in this release include changes from an unreleased 7.0.9 version.  Download Tomcat 7.0.10 from a mirror near you.  As of the time of this writing, the changelog has not been updated but there is one included in the downloadable tomcat docs.

Update:  The changelog has now been updated.

Update 2:  The Apache Tomcat team issued an advisory that an included security fix in version 7.0.10 does not fix the vulnerability in all cases.  Version 7.0.11 will be released soon so I would suggest holding off on any 7.0.10 implementations or upgrades until 7.0.11 is released.
