Spring Cloud Data Flow 1.7 M1 released

The Spring Cloud Data Flow team is pleased to announce the release of 1.7 M1. Follow the Getting Started guides for Local Server, Cloud Foundry, and Kubernetes.

Here are the highlights

  • Improved UI

  • Stream Application DSL

  • Audit trail

  • Concurrent Task Launch Limiting

  • Stream and Task validation

  • Force upgrade for Streams

Improved UI

The UI has a completely new look. The navigation has moved from tabs to a left side navigation system. This gives increased screen real estate for creating streams with the Flo designer and even more screen real estate can be obtained by minimizing the left side navigation. There is a quick search feature that searches across all the different Data Flow categories. Additional colors and overall theme changes have been added to make the UI look more lively. Deeper in the core, the route management has been improved and we have increased our end to end testing coverage using BrowserStack/SauceLabs.
