Tomcat 8.0 EOL

I understand some other pages explicitly limits the support to Tomcat 8.0.
Even 8.5 seems outside the scope.

30 June 2018 looks far enough, but some vendors need to start preparing
something for the migration. Might be very helpful if and possibly when
8.5 or 9.0 will be officially supported.
