The Apache Tomcat team announces the immediate availability of Apache Tomcat 7.0.25

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This release includes numerous bug fixes and several new features compared to version 7.0.23. The notable new features include:

  • Align the Servlet 3.0 implementation with the changes defined in the first maintenance release (also known as Rev. A.). See the JCP documentation for a detailed list of changes.
  • Add support for connectors to automatically select a free port to bind to. This is useful when embedding and for testing.
  • Update to Commons Pool 1.5.7, Commons Daemon 1.0.8 and Eclipse JDT compiler 3.7.1.

Please refer to the change log for the complete list of changes:
