fix 57705: Add debug logging for requests denied by the remote host and remote address valves and filters. Based on a patch by Graham Leggett. (markt)
update Change the default of the sessionCookiePathUsesTrailingSlash attribute of the Context element to false since the problems caused when a Servlet is mapped to /* are more significant than the security risk of not enabling this option by default. (markt)

fix Improve error handling around user code prior to calling InstanceManager.destroy() to ensure that the method is executed. (markt)
fix Ensure that reading the singleThreadModel attribute of a StandardWrapper via JMX does not trigger initialisation of the associated servlet. With some frameworks this can trigger an unexpected initialisation thread and if initilisation is not thread-safe the initialisation can then fail. (markt)
fix By default, treat paths used to obtain a request dispatcher as encoded. This behaviour can be changed per web application via the dispatchersUseEncodedPaths attribute of the Context. (markt)
fix 59839: Apply roleSearchAsUser to all nested searches in JNDIRealm. (fschumacher)
add Provide a mechanism that enables the container to check if a component (typically a web application) has been granted a given permission when running under a SecurityManager without the current execution stack having to have passed through the component. Use this new mechanism to extend SecurityManager protection to the system property replacement feature of the digester. (markt)
add When retrieving an object via a ResourceLink, ensure that the object obtained is of the expected type. (markt)
fix 59866: When scanning WEB-INF/classes for annotations, don't scan the contents of WEB-INF/classes/META-INF (if present) since classes will never be loaded from that location. (markt)

fix Fix a file descriptor leak when reading the global web.xml. (markt)
fix 60041: Better error message if a JAR is deleted while a web application is running. Note: Deleting a JAR while the application is running is not supported and errors are expected. Based on a patch by gehui. (markt)
fix Improve error handling around user code prior to calling InstanceManager.destroy() to ensure that the method is executed. (markt)
fix 59904: Add a limit (default 200) for the number of cookies allowed per request. Based on a patch by gehui. (markt)
fix Make timing attacks against the Realm implementations harder. (schultz)
add Refactor the code that implements the requirement that a call to complete() or dispatch() made from a non-container thread before the container initiated thread that called startAsync() completes must be delayed until the container initiated thread has completed. Rather than implementing this by blocking the non-container thread, extend the internal state machine to track this. This removes the possibility that blocking the non-container thread could trigger a deadlock. (markt)
fix Improve error handling around user code prior to calling InstanceManager.destroy()
