Spring Cloud Finchley M1 is available.

On behalf of the community, I am pleased to announce that the Milestone 1 (M1) of the Spring Cloud Finchley Release Train is available today. The release can be found in Spring Milestone repository. You can check out the Finchley release notes for more information.

Notable Changes in the Finchley Release Train

Finchley is based on the Spring Boot 2.0.0 line. Finchley.M1 is based on Spring Boot 2.0.0.M2. This is largely a compatibility build with no new features with the exception of Spring Cloud Gateway. Finchley will follow Spring Boot’s milestones and release candidates with a corresponding Finchley release soon after. General Availability is targeted for after Spring Boot 2.0 GA, likely in Dec. 2017.

Spring Cloud Gateway

Spring Cloud Gateway is a new API Gateway based on Spring 5, Boot 2 and Project Reactor. It is viewed as a replacement for Zuul 1. Some features include:

  • Fine grained route predicates such as: path, host and HTTP method
  • Filters such as: path rewriting, adding headers and rate limiting
  • A Management API
  • A Route definition repository interface (for persisting route definitions).

Look for a future blog post that will further introduce Spring Cloud Gateway
