End of life for Apache Tomcat 6.0.x

posted by Stacey Schneider on June 3, 2015 12:57 PM

The Apache Tomcat team announces that support for Apache Tomcat 6.0.x will end on 31 December 2016.

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

This means that after 31 December 2016:

  • Releases from the 6.0.x branch are highly unlikely
  • Bugs affecting only the 6.0.x branch will not be addressed
  • Security vulnerability reports will not be checked against the 6.0.x branch

Three months later (i.e. after 30 March 2017)

  • the 6.0.x download pages will be removed
  • The latest 6.0.x release will be removed from the mirror system
  • The 6.0.x branch in svn will move from /tomcat/tc6.0.x to /tomcat/archive/tc6.0.x
  • The links to the 6.0.x documentation will be removed from tomcat.apache.org
  • The bugzilla project for 6.0.x will be made read-only

Note that all 6.0.x releases will always be available from the archive.

It is anticipated that the final 6.0.x release will be made shortly before 31 December 2016.
