     60        This is a major change that has caused a binary compatibility in the BASE core
     61        API. If you depend on custom extensions or plug-ins that use the biomaterial list
     62        API this code must be updated before updating to BASE 3.5. Read more
     63        about the incompatibilities in <xref linkend="appendix.incompatible.itemlists" />.

     75        We have now tested BASE with Tomcat 8 and it seems to work without
     76        any problems. Support for Tomcat 7 will be removed in the next
     77        version (BASE 3.6).

    605               As of BASE 3.3 Tomcat 7 is required. BASE will no longer
    606               run on Tomcat 6 or lower.
     621              As of BASE 3.5, we are recommending Tomcat 8. Support for Tomcat
     622              7 will be removed in BASE 3.6.
