Spring Cloud Stream Chelsea goes GA!

On behalf of the community, I am happy to announce the general availability of the Spring Cloud Stream Chelsea release train. For this release train, the first general availability release is Chelsea.SR1, which fixes a number of issues over Chelsea.RELEASE (all within the scope of the metrics export feature). Chelsea.SR1 is also included as part of Spring Cloud Dalston.RELEASE.

The new release is available in Maven Central, and a detailed description of its features can be found in the reference documentation. For information about artifacts and most recent changes, please consult the release notes, as follows:

What is new?

The new release contains a number of fixes and improvements over the previous release candidate. As a reminder, here are a few highlights of features added by previous releases (with links to the original announcements).

  • Milestone (1.0.0.M1) release for the JMS binder

  • Preview of Kafka Streams support based on the newly added support in Spring Kafka
