I was curious how long ago the latest server update actually happened.  In my OP I posted the version list from Wikipedia.  Now here is the version list from Apache:

https://tomcat.apach.../changelog.html

 

To recap, they are using Apache Tomcat 6.0.35.  Version 6.0 was "sunsetted" in April of 2017 with the final point release 6.0.53.  That means there won't be any more security or maintenance on 6.0.

 

Based on the document linked above, the version they are using (6.0.35) was released on 2011-12-05.  Then the next point release after that (6.0.36) came on 2012-10-19.  The point release they are using was basically a minor release in between two bigger point releases, nothing that special about that.  That helps my theory that they were just using the latest that was available at the time. 

 

So it is safe to say their server software hasn't been updated since sometime in late 2011 or 2012.  Security patches on their end wouldn't have been available since April of 2017.

Based only on the title this looked like one of those spam threads that allow one to watch movies and other copy written content illegally.

 

But once I saw the post was by you (say verses a user name like dirk1343),  I knew it was cool and you just being helpful.   :D

 

LOL

Just a "heads up" that it looks as if the server platform Apache Tomcat/6.0 which hosts the TCM schedules (and likely the rest of this site) is EOL and will no longer be receiving maintenance releases, after April 2017 (final point release 6.0.53).  [actual version I see running is 6.0.35]

 

 

I'm sure everyone at the mothership is fully aware of this. ;)

Edited to change user name to vvde4Df the latest troll.  Note I just noticed that this site displays the latest 'new user',  often this is a spamming troll.
