update Add check for directory before considering something is a compressed WAR. (remm)
docs Update the connector documentation. (remm)
fix When parsing a context file, ignore the "path" attribute: the only place where it is acceptable is in server.xml. (remm)

update Many updated and fixed JavaDocs. (yoavs)
update Designed and tested Tomcat on J2SE 5.0 (aka JDK 1.5). (everyone)
update Bundled Eclipse JDT (new dependency) to allow Tomcat to run on a JRE only, i.e. no JDK required. (remm)
update Repackage commons-dbcp and its dependencies as a sigle smaller WAR, with renamed packages. (remm)
update Removed dependencies on commons-digester, commons-beanutils, and commons-collections. The relevant digester functionality is now merged in tomcat-util. (remm)
update Removed usage of org.apache.catalina.Logger, increased usage of commons-logging everywhere. (remm)
update Refactored classloader code to better handle JAR and general resource locking. (remm)
update Written JMX-related code to play nicely with J2SE 5.0 built-in JMX abilities. (remm, costin)
update Extensively profiled and optimized the server startup performance as well as the request mapping and processing pipeline. (remm)
update The container will now always process a /META-INF/context.xml resource, unless the webapp has a specified external context file. (remm)
update New default configuration mechanism for web applications, replacing DefaultContext. This uses a shared context file located in conf/context.xml. (remm)

update Simpler Valve interface, to allow smaller stack traces and reducing the amount of method calls. (remm)
update Eclipse JDT is now the default Java compiler in Jasper. Source dependencies are now loaded from the container classloader, and compilation times are much faster. (remm)
update Jasper development mode should now have acceptable performance for heavily accessed pages. Precompiling JSPs is still significantly more efficient, however. (remm)
