Spring Cloud Dalston M1 Released

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

Notable Changes in the Dalston Release Train

Spring Cloud Vault Config is a new project that provides client-side support for externalized secret management in a distributed system via Hashicorp Vault.

Config Server

Hashicorp Vault was previously added as a backend to Config Server to go along with the VCS based backends. Config Server now has support for multiple backends via a Composite pattern. This allows for combinations of backend types that was not possible before, such as: Vault and git or multiple git backends. Authentication to git repositories hosted by AWS Codecommit is now supported.
