Jakarta Project offers a diverse set of open source Java solutions and is a part of The Apache Software Foundation (ASF) which encourages a collaborative, consensus-based development process under an open software license.
Jakarta is organized into subprojects, summarized in the section below. The ASF contains other Java projects, some of which were a part of Jakarta.
Tomcat 5.5.12 has been voted a stable release after a testing period following the alpha distribution. There have been no code changes, so if you already have 5.5.12-alpha, you do not need to download 5.5.12 again. Thank you.
This release is the last one to be done using the CVS repository at Apache. The Tomcat team is moving to the Subversion (SVN) repository as part of the overall Apache initiative to do so. Access instructions for the SVN repository are available at Apache's repositories page. The move is expected to be complete within the next week.
This release is also likely the last one to use the Jakarta pages. As part of Tomcat's move to a top-level project (TLP) at Apache, we will be migrating our content to http://tomcat.apache.org, which is still under construction at this time. That site will have its own download pages and related information. We will keep the key jakarta URLs intact with redirection, but please keep an eye out and update your bookmarks to http://tomcat.apache.org as/when appropriate.
As part of the TLP move, distribution names have changed from jakarta-tomcat-* to apache-tomcat-*, and similar minor branding changes will gradually become visible in the web site and documentation. We thank the Jakarta project for its support over the years, and we will continue collaborating on projects and issues of common interest.
