On behalf of the team, I am pleased to announce the release of Spring Cloud Skipper 1.0 M2.

Spring For Apache Kafka 2.1 RC1 and 2.0.1 & 1.3.1 Available

Spring Cloud Stream Elmhurst.M3 /2.0.0.M3 Release Announcement

We are pleased to announce the 2.0.0.M3 release of the Spring Cloud Stream Elmhurst release train.

The following sections list new features and improvements included in this release:

Improved Content Type Resolution

The content-type resolution has been improved and consolidated in the channel interceptors, which makes it configurable for situations that require application-level customizations. Also, based on the community feedback, we now set the default content-type as application/json. However, it is still possible to override it via BindingProperties or it can be passed with the Message coming from an upstream application.
