[ANN] Apache Tomcat 8.5.63 available

Mark Thomas-2
The Apache Tomcat team announces the immediate availability of Apache
Tomcat 8.5.63.

Apache Tomcat 8 is an open source software implementation of the Java
Servlet, JavaServer Pages, Java Unified Expression Language, Java
WebSocket and Java Authentication Service Provider Interface for
Containers technologies.

Apache Tomcat 8.5.x replaces 8.0.x and includes new features pulled
forward from the 9.0.x branch. The notable changes since 8.5.61 include:

  provide customised string attribute value to type conversion within
  JSPs. This allows applications to provide a conversion implementation
  that is optimised for the application.

- Add peerAddress to coyote request, which contains the IP address of
  the direct connection peer. If a reverse proxy sits in front of Tomcat
  and the RemoteIp(Valve|Filter) is used, the peerAddress is likely to
  differ from the remoteAddress. The remoteAddress is likely to contain
  the address of the client in front of the reverse proxy, not the
  address of the proxy itself.

- Escape elements in the access log that need to be escaped for the
  access log to be parsed unambiguously.

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