Tomcat Breaking Change
The Tomcat bundled with Artifactory has been upgraded to version 8.5.51 which introduces a change that might affect your Artifactory instance.
HTTP Date Headers
Due to aknown issuein Tomcat 8.5.51, Artifactory may return HTTP date headers (Date, Last-Modified) in a timezone that is different than GMT. See more details here.
If you are using clients that make use of the "If-Modified-Since" request header in the request to Artifactory, you need to make sure that dates are sent in GMT format (as the HTTP spec mandates).
If the clients that you use send dates in GMT format, this change will not affect you.
