Tomcat 7.0.26 (markt)
code Provide constants for commonly used Charset objects and use these constants where appropriate. (markt)
fix Refactor the fix for 52184 to correct two issues (a missing class and incorrect class/method names) when using the extras logging packages. (markt)
fix 52444: Only load classes during HandlesTypes processing if the class is a match. Previously, every class in the web application was loaded regardless of whether it was a match or not. (markt)
fix 52488: Correct typo: exipre -> expire. (markt)
add Add a unit test for SSO authentication. Patch provided by Brian Burch. (markt)
fix 52511: Correct regression in the fix for 51741 that caused a harmless exception to be logged when scanning for annotations and WEB-INF/classes did not exist. (markt)

fix 51940: Do not limit saving of request bodies during FORM authentication to POST requests since any HTTP method may include a request body. Based on a patch by Nicholas Sushkin. (markt/kkolinko)
fix 51956: RemoteAddrFilter used getRemoteHost instead of getRemoteAddr when filtering Comet events. (schultz)
fix 51952: Make the inclusion of a response body with a redirect response introduced to address 41718 optional and disabled by default due to the side-effects of including a body with the response in this case. (markt)
fix 51972: Correctly handle protocol relative URLs when used with sendRedirect(). (markt)
code Simplify the deployment code and use full paths in log messages to remove any ambiguity in where a context is being deployed from. (markt)
fix 52009: Fix a NPE during access log entry recording when an error occurred during the processing of a Comet request. (markt)
fix In OneLineFormatter log formatter in JULI always use the US locale to format the date (esp. the month names). (rjung)
add Cache the results of parsing the global and host level web.xml files to improve web application start time. (markt)
fix 52042: Correct threading issue in annotation caching that could lead to an NPE if multiple threads were processing the same class hierarchy for annotations. (markt)
fix Correct additional threading and premature clearance issues with the annotation cache. (markt)
fix Correct a regression in the fix for 49779 that parameters POSTed by an unauthenticated user to a page that required FORM authentication were lost during the authentication process. (markt)
fix 52055: Ensure that the input and output buffers are correctly reset between keep-alive requests when using Servlet 3.0 asynchronous request processing. (markt)
fix Ensure changes to the configuration of the RemoteHostValve and the RemoteAddrValve via JMX are thread-safe. (markt)

code Replace the use of deprecated auth method names from authenticator.Constants with the auth method names from HttpServletRequest. (kkolinko)
add Make configuration issues for security related Valves and Filters result in the failure of the valve or filter rather than just a warning message. (markt)
add Improve performance of parameter processing for GET and POST requests. Also add an option to limit the maximum number of parameters processed per request. This defaults to 10000. Excessive parameters are ignored. Note that FailedRequestFilter can be used to reject the request if some parameters were ignored. (markt/kkolinko)
fix 52091: Address performance issues related to lock contention in StandardWrapper. Patch provided by Taiki Sugawara. (markt)
code Switch to using Collections.enumeration() rather than custom code that does the same thing. (markt)
fix 52113: Don't assume presence of context.xml file with JMX deployment. (markt)
update In RequestFilterValve (RemoteAddrValve, RemoteHostValve): refactor value matching logic into separate method and expose this new method isAllowed through JMX. (kkolinko)
fix 52156: Ensure that getServletContext().getResource(path) returns the correct resource when path contains /../ sequences or any other sequences that require normalization. (markt)
add Report existence of HTTP request parameter parsing errors via new special ServletRequest attribute, org.apache.catalina.parameter_parse_failed. (kkolinko)
add New filter FailedRequestFilter that will reject a request if there were errors during HTTP parameter parsing. (kkolinko)
update Improve special attributes handling in Request object by using hash table lookup instead of series of string comparisons. (kkolinko)
code Deprecate unused methods in IntrospectionUtils class. (kkolinko)
fix Improve processing of errors that are wrapped in InvocationTargetException. Rethrow fatal errors that must be rethrown. (kkolinko)
fix Improve handling of failed web application deployments during automatic deployment. Once deployment of a web application fails in one form (e.g. WAR), no further attempt (e.g. directory) will be made to deploy that web application. The base Lifecycle implementation has been improved to allow failed web applications to be started once the configuration issues have been resolved. Any changes to a context.xml file (global, per host or web application specific) will now result in a redeploy of the affected web application(s) that ensures that any changes are correctly applied rather than a reload which ignores changes in context.xml files. (markt/kkolinko)
fix 52173: Improve Javadoc for delegate attribute of WebappClassLoader. Based on a patch by bmargulies. (markt)
add Add denyStatus attribute to RequestFilterValve (RemoteAddrValve, RemoteHostValve valves) and RequestFilter (RemoteAddrFilter, RemoteHostFilter filters). It allows to use different HTTP response code when rejecting denied request. E.g. 404 instead of 403. (kkolinko)

fix Improve MimeHeaders.toString(). (kkolinko)
fix Fix threading issue in NIO connectors during shutdown that meant Comet connections were not always shut down cleanly. (markt)
add In HTTP connectors: self-guard against using a non-recycled input buffer. Requests will be rejected with response status 400. (kkolinko)
fix 52121: Fix possible output corruption when compression is enabled for a connector and the response is flushed. Includes a test case provided by David Marcks. (kkolinko/markt)
fix Improve multi-byte character handling in Coyote output for HTTP and AJP. (rjung)
add Refactor acceptor unlock code to reduce waiting time during connector pause and stop. (markt)
fix Correct possible (but very small) memory leak when using maxLoadedJsps to limit the number of JSPs loaded at any one time. (markt)
fix 52051: Better handling of missing resource problems with non-standard Servlet mappings so that a 404 response is returned to the client rather than a 500 response. (markt)
fix 52091: Address performance issues related to log creation in TagHandlerPool. Patch provided by Taiki Sugawara. (markt)
code Switch to using Collections.enumeration() rather than custom code that does the same thing. (markt)
fix Avoid an unnecessary session ID change notice. Notice of changed session ID by JvmRouteBinderValve is unnecessary to BackupManager. In BackupManager, change of session ID is replicated by the call of a setId() method. (kfujino)
fix Fix duplicate resetDeltaRequest() call in DeltaSession.setId(String). (kkolinko)
fix Work around a known JVM bug that is fixed in 1.7.0_01 but still present in 1.6.0_29 and was triggering intermittent unit test failures for TestGroupChannelMemberArrival.testMemberArrival. The bug affects any components that use NIO although it was more likely to be observed in the clustering module than the HTTP or AJP NIO connector. (markt)
add When Context manager does not exist, no context manager message is replied in order to avoid timeout (default 60sec) of GET_ALL_SESSIONS sync phase. (kfujino)
fix Fix setting maxInactiveInterval, sessionIdLength and processExpiresFrequency for cluster managers. Use setter when setting maxActiveSessions. (rjung)
Web applications
add 50923: Use distinct background color for code tag in Tomcat documentation, for better readability. (kkolinko)
fix 51630: Fix bug in async0 example that triggered an IllegalStateException in the application log. (markt)
add 52025: Add additional information regarding DriverManager, the service provider mechanism and memory leaks. (markt)
fix 52049: Improve setup instructions for running as a Windows service: remove references to specific Windows operating systems - it easily becomes dated; correct information on how a JRE is identified and selected. (markt)
update 52172: Clarify Tomcat build instructions. Patch provided by bmargulies. (kkolinko)
fix 52015: In jdbc-pool: JdbcInterceptor passes not 'this' but 'proxy' to getNext().invoke. (kfujino)
fix In jdbc-pool: Improve handling of Errors that originate from methods invoked through reflection. In TrapException interceptor: rethrow Error as is, without wrapping it in a RuntimeException. (kkolinko)
fix In jdbc-pool: Unwrap InvocationTargetException if it is caught in ResultSetProxy, like we do it elsewhere. (kkolinko)
fix When building jdbc-pool from within Tomcat, use Tomcat's output directory location. This allows to move all build output away from the source tree. (kkolinko)
update Update the package re-named copy of Commons BCEL (formerly Jakarta BCEL) to the latest code from Commons BCEL trunk. (markt)
code Remove some unused code from the packaged renamed Commons BCEL. (markt)

code Start the process of deprecating unused and unnecessary code that will be removed in the next major release (8.0.x). (markt)
update Ignore .git directory when building the source distributive. (markt)
update Remove trailing whitespace from the default configuration files. (kkolinko)
update Improve RUNNING.txt. (kkolinko)
update Update optional Checkstyle library to 5.5. (kkolinko)
add In test suite: add LoggingBaseTest class to allow use of Tomcat logging configuration in tests that do not start Tomcat. (kkolinko)
fix In test suite: speed up TestGroupChannelSenderConnections. Remove 48 seconds worth of waits. (kkolinko)
fix 52148: Add tomcat-coyote.jar to catalina-tasks.xml as this JAR is now required by the Ant tasks. Patch provided by Volker Krebs. (markt)
Tomcat 7.0.22 (markt)released 2011-10-01
fix 51550: An additional change that ensures any exceptions thrown by an Authenticator (or any other Valve configured for the Context) will be handled by the custom error pages for the Context if an appropriate error page is configured. (markt)
fix 51580: Added a nicer error message when a WAR file contains filenames not properly encoded in UTF-8. (schultz)
fix 51687: Added (optional) protection against sun.java2d.Disposer thread pinning a WebappClassLoader into memory in the JreMemoryLeakPreventionListener. (schultz)

fix 51744: Prevent application code from closing the associated JNDI context while the application is running. (markt)
fix Correct a regression with the fix for 51653 that broke custom error pages for 4xx responses from the Authenticators. Error handling and request listeners are now handled in the StandardHostValve to ensure they wrap all Context level activity. (markt)
fix 51758: The digester (used for processing XML files) used the logger name org.apache.commons.digester.Digester rather than the expected org.apache.tomcat.util.digester.Digester. The digester has been changed to use the expected logger name. (markt/kkolinko)
fix 51774: Fix incorrect cached method signature that prevented session tracking modes from being defined in web.xml when running under a security manager. (markt)
add Add an annotation cache to the DefaultInstanceManager that improves performance for applications that make use of a lot of non-poolable objects (e.g. tag files) that need to be scanned for annotations when created. (markt)
fix Use the specification compliant request attribute of javax.servlet.request.ssl_session_id to access the SSL session ID and deprecated the Tomcat specific request attribute. (markt)
add Allow to overwrite the check for distributability of session attributes by session implementations. (rjung)

update Align APR AJP connector with NIO one. Send 503 if endpoint is paused. (rjung)
update Accept AJP request even if endpoint is paused, if CPING was successful. (rjung)
fix When unloading JSPs due to configuration of the maxLoadedJsps initialisation parameter, the unloading code was retaining a reference to the to the unloaded JSP preventing the associated class from being unloaded until the JSP that replaced it was itself unloaded. (markt)
fix 51852: Correct two problems in the handling of varargs methods with the BeanELResolver. The first meant the wrong method was sometimes called and the second that an ArrayIndexOutOfBoundsExceptions could be thrown. Patch (including a test case) provided by Matt Benson. (markt)
update Refactor cluster manager configuration: move handling of common attributes to base class. (kfujino, rjung)
add New cluster manager attribute sessionAttributeFilter allows to filter which session attributes are replicated using a regular expression applied to the attribute name. (rjung)

fix 51871: Fix dependency in Maven POM file of tomcat-jbdc. (kkolinko)
update Update the "test" target in the default build file to report a test failure only after all available connector variants (bio, nio, apr) have been tested. Do not stop after first connector that fails. (kkolinko)
update 51887: When running the unit tests, use a fast but insecure random number source for session ID generation to reduce the delays caused by waiting for entropy. (kkolinko/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.
