Spring Cloud Stream Chelsea goes GA!

On behalf of the community, I am happy to announce the general availability of the Spring Cloud Stream Chelsea release train. For this release train, the first general availability release is Chelsea.SR1, which fixes a number of issues over Chelsea.RELEASE (all within the scope of the metrics export feature). Chelsea.SR1 is also included as part of Spring Cloud Dalston.RELEASE.

The new release is available in Maven Central, and a detailed description of its features can be found in the reference documentation. For information about artifacts and most recent changes, please consult the release notes, as follows:


Spring Data Kay M2 released

On behalf of the Spring Data team, I’d like to announce the availability of the second milestone of the release train Kay. The release is an important step towards a second generation of Spring Data.

We’ve upgraded the majority of the codebase to Java 8, now also embracing e.g. Optional in method signatures. This mostly affects internal SPIs but also leaks into user code, especially in CrudRepository. The support for reactive Spring Data repositories has been extended to Couchbase (Thanks, Subhashni!), the Redis module has a reactive template API now. The release also ships support for IsEmpty and IsNotEmpty for derived queries and implementaitons of those for MongoDB and JPA. The aggregation framework in MongoDB now also supports streaming results.
