Spring Cloud for Google Cloud Platform 1.0 goes GA!

Dear Spring Community!

Today, together with Google Cloud team, I’m very excited to announce that Spring Cloud for Google Cloud Platform project of version 1.0 is Generally Available at last!

This project has started as a collaboration with the Google Cloud team (and we really appreciate their effort) and aims to implement and expose well-know Spring Framework patterns and abstractions to bring the benefits of Spring and Spring Boot to Java developers using GCP services. Together we spent many hours (more than a year!) discussing the best APIs and approaches which should be convenient and useful to target projects aiming to consume GCP services. Even if we iterated the implementations multiple times to provide the developer experience, right now we believe that the project is mature and stable, and we believe in its potential. And now we are very thrilled to continue our collaboration for implementing more features to expose GCP services for Spring Cloud applications!
