There is one more CVE has been reported for gwt-dev jar for htmlUnit component. Details of CVE are as below -

Are there any plans to mitigate above vulnerablity?
As we know that gwt-dev.jar is used for development purpose( in our application, we remove gwt-dev.jar post compilation) , still are there any attack surfaces exists?

It's not clear whether the mime4j component of James is vulnerable (I'd say no), but it's only used for unit tests where I'd say you shouldn't load any untrusted data.Jetty as used in GWT won't do HTTP/2.So, the only possible attack surface would be untrusted URLs loaded during tests.
