The Apache Tomcat team announces the immediate availability of Apache Tomcat 7.0.29.
Apache Tomcat is an open source software implementation of the Java Servlet and JavaServer Pages technologies.
This release corrects a small number of regressions introduced in the 7.0.28 release and takes account of several recent clarifications from the Servlet Expert Group as well as containing a handful of bug fixes and small improvements compared to version 7.0.28. The notable changes include:
- Add support for a default error page
- The servlet version defined in web.xml no longer determines if Tomcat scans for annotations when the web application starts. This is now solely controlled by metadata-complete element.
- On web application start, JARs are now always scanned for ServletContainerInitializers regardless of the setting of metadata-complete
Please refer to the change log for the complete list of changes: http://tomcat.apache.org/tomcat-7.0-doc/changelog.html
Note: This version has 4 zip binaries: a generic one and three bundled with Tomcat native binaries for Windows operating systems running on different CPU architectures.
Note: If you use the APR/native AJP or HTTP connector you *must* upgrade to version 1.1.24 or later of the AJP/native library
