Dear Spring community,
In addition to addressing various user-reported bugs, we’ve applied minor refactorings to clean up unintended leftovers from the 5.0 GA release, e.g. for the reactive codec configurers.
This release upgrades Reactor to Bismuth SR3, based on Reactor Core 3.1.1, picking up essential fixes in Reactor Netty. Furthermore, AspectJ 1.8.12 brings some welcome performance improvements to Spring AOP’s pointcut expression evaluation at runtime.
