|[jetty-dev] Updates for Jetty 8.1.x branches to address recent CVEs|
Eclipse is well known for being an open source community that embraces commercial adoption. Maintenance is a major part of the life cycle of a software project. Many companies are big advocates for providing long term maintenance for Eclipse technologies to help adopters to stay on top of regular software updates to avoid problems upfront, as well as to react to problems that impede users.
However, the Jetty releases 8.1.x included in a few still very active Eclipse releases have reached Jetty End of Life. Users of the few earlier releases of Eclipse are still exposed to the recent CVEs because there are no fixes provided for the Jetty 8.1.x branches. Are there any plans to provide updates for Jetty 8.1.x branches to patch the vulnerabilities for Jetty 8.1.x users?
