This release contains a few fixes and modifications found after the 1.0.4 release. Tomcat plugin logging uses a new jar to push its log events to slf4j; also updated is the websocket plugin to version 1.1.
These artifacts were compiled with jdk8, but had the target set for jdk7 (1.7). This means they will operate correctly only on java 8 / jdk8; in java 6 or 7 you will get a keySet error due to linked jdk8 methods. The sonatype repositories will be updated with proper jdk7 builds today (2/10/14).
