Spring Cloud Open Service Broker 3.1.0.RC1 Released

We are pleased to announce the 3.1.0.RC1 release of Spring Cloud Open Service Broker. Support for Open Service Broker API v2.15 is now feature complete, and we expect for this to be the final milestone before a GA release. Thanks to the community for your feedback and contributions! This release includes the following fixes and enhancements:

  • Upgrade to Spring Boot 2.2.1.RELEASE
  • Add ServiceBrokerMaintenanceInfoConflictException to handle MaintenanceInfoConflict error scenarios.
  • ServiceBrokerInvalidParametersException now returns an HTTP 400 when a create or update request is malformed or includes invalid parameters. Previously it was, incorrectly, returning an HTTP 422.
  • CreateServiceInstanceBindingRequest now extends AsyncParameterizedServiceInstanceRequest in order to utilize a common request object and reduce redundancy.
  • Update reference documentation.

Spring Security OAuth 2.0 Roadmap Update

Current State

In the Spring Security 5.x release train, we’ve endeavored to replace and simplify the feature set found in the Spring Security OAuth 2.x legacy project. In the process, we’ve also added numerous new features, including support for OpenID Connect 1.0.

We are pleased to announce that as of the 5.2 release, we are very close to feature parity with the client and resource server legacy support. What remains is quite minimal, and we fully anticipate announcing feature parity as part of the 5.3 release.

We would like to issue a special thank you to all those in the community who have brought Spring Security this far! We hope to see many more contributions from everyone down the road.
