Notable Changes in the Finchley Release Train

Spring Cloud Netflix

  • All of the code releated to Feign has been moved to a separate project, Spring Cloud OpenFeign.
  • There is a known issue with the Hystrix Webflux endpoint when using Spring Boot 2.0.0.RC2. You can follow this issue in Reactor for more information.

Spring Cloud Stream 2.0 - Polled Consumers

This is the second blog in a series of pre-release blogs in preparation for Spring Cloud Stream 2.0.0.RELEASE.


Spring Cloud Stream 2.0 introduces polled consumers, where the application can control message processing rates.


Spring Cloud Stream has the concepts of producers and consumers; when using the messaging paradigm, MessageChannels are bound to destinations (e.g. Kafka topics, Rabbit Exchanges/Queues). To-date, on the consumer side, messages are delivered whenever an idle consumer is available. In effect, the broker controls the rate of delivery; usually, the next message is delivered immediately after the current one is processed.


Spring Cloud Data Flow 1.4.0 M1 released

The Spring Cloud Data Flow team is excited to announce the release of 1.4.0 M1. Follow the Getting Started guides for Local Server, Cloud Foundry, and Kubernetes.

A big focus of this first milestone release of the 1.4.x line has been the Dashboard UI. In an effort to keep our UI dependencies current at all times, we finally upgraded the UI to Angular 5.2 and Angular CLI 1.6. Furthermore, the UI now provides better integration with Spring Cloud Skipper.

As such, you can now manage the versions of App Registrations and set a default version.
